Some case studies

Moxons of Cawthorne

It is assumed that the individual who would head these Moxon Society Trees lived probably in Yorkshire prior to the 14th Century. The Moxons of Cawthorne, the largest of the Society’s Trees, had settled in Cawthorne, Yorkshire, by 1379...

The earliest known Moxons of Cawthorne

We know little about our earliest, traceable ancestor, Charles Mokeson of Cawthorne in Yorkshire, apart from what is told by his will, written and proved in 1592. The first book of Cawthorne Parish Registers (cl588 to 1653) are missing...

The Moxons of Ferry Fryston

Although our family history – so far as we have managed to unearth it – has been presented in this book in broadly chronological order from 1728 down to the present day, the research work involved has of course taken place in reverse order

The Moxons of Silkstone

Although our family history – so far as we have managed to unearth it – has been presented in this book in broadly chronological order from 1728 down to the present day, the research work involved has of course taken place in reverse order

Moxhams (Moxams) of Wiltshire

DNA analysis has established that the Moxhams (Moxams) of Wiltshire and Ireland are not related to the Moxons of Yorkshire, or to the Moxhams of Lancashire (who are descended from the Moxons of Yorkshire)...

The Moxons of Leeds & Great Yarmouth

The probability analysis of Family Tree DNA test results indicates that if the physical links could be found, the trees in this Group , i.e. MX05 (Leeds, Yorkshire & Great Yarmouth, Norfolk), MX17 (Fishlake & Thorne, Yorkshire), MX25 (Little Downham, Cambridgeshire), MX76 (Lytham, Lancashire) would be prime candidates for merging...

Moxons by name only

There are currently just two trees, MX04 and MX67, that fall into this group, where the head of the tree is a Moxon in name only; they have no blood connection to any of the other Moxon or Moxham trees. MX04 was compiled by John Moxon Hill and his tree chart can be accessed by...

Moxons of no known genetic group

DNA analysis has established that a number of Moxon Society Trees share a common ancestor – see the pages for the four groups associated with Cawthorne, Silkstone, Leeds & Great Yarmouth and Wiltshire. However, there are a number of Moxon trees where either: 1) DNA tests have still to be undertaken and any visible links to any of the other Moxon trees have proved elusive 2) DNA tests have been carried out but the probability analysis shows no connection to any of the other Moxon or Moxham trees tested thus far. Such a result can mean one of three things...
