The Moxon Family Research Trust

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 (see the notes to MX76 below). The analysis also demonstrated a weaker link to MX01, the Moxons of Cawthorne, so it may be that much further back this Group links into the Cawthorne Group. Another probability analysis of an Oxford Ancestors DNA result for Thomas Jules Moxon suggested a tentative link with MX54 (William Eyers Moxon, Leeds).

It is likely (DNA research ongoing as at Dec 2017) that MX12, the very first Moxon Society tree (Jimmy Moxon’s tree in his book “The Moxons of Yorkshire”), also belongs in this group as the closest DNA match appears to be with MX25.

Further information for genealogists on the various places mentioned in the Trees below can be found on the GENUKI website.

Before 2010, all Moxon Society Trees were compiled by John Moxon Hill (JMH). His notes documenting how the Trees were developed are reproduced below where available and the current position is also given.

N.B. The JMH tree charts below are now out of date. Some may contain inaccurate information. They have been superseded by more accurate and detailed trees and some have been merged together. Their value is in their historic use in examining how the Moxon Society Trees were originally compiled.

John Moxon Hill began to compile the above Tree charts in the early 1990s, when the kind of genealogy software that we now take for granted was not available. He used a custom computer program that was quite restricted in its capabilities. The programme was limited to a maximum of 255 people per tree and providing that the resultant tree size did not occupy more than 12 sheets in width, and no more than 20 generations (three sheets deep). That was the reason why the Moxons of Silkstone MX27, MX26 and MX15 were produced as separate interlocking trees. A copy of the JMH original chart for each of the above trees is available by clicking on the tree number. [Webmaster’s note 1 August 2018: this capability is not currently enabled].The sheets for each Tree are labelled with the tree reference, and a page and letter reference. All sheets numbered 1 form the top row, with 1A on the left. Sheets numbered 2 form the second row, with the letters lining up vertically. If there is a third row (as for MX01) then those sheets are numbered 3. Where a sheet would not contain any information, it is not supplied e.g. there is a sheet MX14 sheet 1D, but no sheet 2D.

As the number of individuals in the Trees grew far beyond the numbers recorded above, John’s original numbering system for individuals within Trees was generally abandoned, but his numbering system used to identify individuals in his trees remains the easiest way to refer to individuals nearer the top of Trees when discussing possible tree mergers, as used below.

 

Trees bundled into this group which were compiled by John Moxon Hill:

MX05 (Tree Guardian: Pauline Drake) is currently headed by William Moxon of Beeston, Leeds, born c1475, who paid subsidy for land there in 1524. In the book “The Moxons of Yorkshire” he is shown as the brother of Robert Moxon of Rothwell (1470-1538) but the probability analysis of DNA results of known descendants has disproved this.

The tree was originally prepared about 1992 and was compiled:

i) copying the pedigrees given in Jimmy Moxon’s book “The Moxons of Yorkshire”.
ii) then adding in information sent in by “Moxons” as a result of Jimmy Moxon’s advance literature regarding his book,
iii) and then finally adding some information from the “IGI”.

The original pedigree included “Sir Samuel Moxon, Surveyor General to Charles II”, although in the text, Jimmy Moxon did cast doubts regarding the authenticity of this individual. Research, funded by The Moxon Family Research Trust, has shown that in that era, no Samuel Moxon was knighted, and further that no Samuel Moxon was ever Surveyor General to Charles II. See the article published in the Moxon Magazine dated October 1993.

In “deleting” Sir Samuel, John was left with a tree in three unconnected parts and a major revision was therefore necessary which resulted in MX05 being split into three: MX05 was headed by John Moxon of Yarmouth (1689-1736), MX21 headed by William Moxon of Pontefract, born c1649 and MX12 headed by “William or Ralph” Moxon c1445-c1515, born during The Wars of the Roses. The identity of this person is conjectural – see book “The Moxons of Yorkshire” by Jimmy Moxon. “William or Ralph” was shown with two sons, Robert Moxon (MX12/2), and William Moxon of Beeston, Leeds (MX12/3) but the probability analysis of DNA results has proved that these two “sons” could not have been brothers and in fact belonged to entirely different groups of Moxons. The DNA taken from descendants of William Moxon of Beeston aligned him with the Moxons of Great Yarmouth. Consequently, John Moxon Hill’s Tree chart for MX12 has been split; William Moxon of Beeston and his descendants have been transferred to MX05, so William Moxon of Beeston, Leeds, is now the head of MX05. The remaining MX12 Tree, although still headed by “William or Ralph”, is now formed solely of the descendants of son Robert Moxon born c1470, who in 1524 paid subsidy for lands held in Rothwell & Lofthouse. The origins of William of Pontefract, the head of MX21, have not yet been determined, since his father clearly was not Sir Samuel Moxon Surveyor General to Charles II – his father may have just been Samuel Moxon! – but more research is required.

MX12 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord) – The Moxons of Rothwell, the Tree of the Society’s founder, Jimmy Moxon, had settled in Rothwell, Yorkshire, by 1379, when John Moxon paid Poll Tax. It is headed by “William or Ralph” Moxon c1445-c1515, born during The Wars of the Roses. The identity of this person is conjectural – see book The Moxons of Yorkshire by Jimmy Moxon. “William or Ralph” was shown with two sons, Robert Moxon (MX12/2), and William Moxon of Beeston (MX12/3) but DNA results have proved that these two “sons” could not have been brothers and in fact belonged to entirely different groups of Moxons. The DNA taken from descendants of William Moxon of Beeston aligned him with the Moxons of Great Yarmouth. Consequently, John Moxon Hill’s original Tree chart has been split; William Moxon of Beeston and his descendants have been transferred to MX05. The remaining MX12 Tree, although still headed by “William or Ralph”, is now formed solely of the descendants of son Robert Moxon born c1470, who in 1524 paid subsidy for lands held in Rothwell & Lofthouse.

MX17 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord) – The Moxons of Thorne, Yorkshire, was headed by John Moxon baptised 4 Jun 1742 in Thorne. Tree MX24 (the “Moxons of Fishlake”) has since been merged into MX17, and MX17 is now known as “the Moxons of Fishlake and Thorne”. It is now headed by the father of William Moxon (c1660-1718), Yeoman of Sykehouse. Although we have the Will of William, we currently have no information regarding his parentage, just that he had at least two sisters, Mary and Anne.

MX24 was headed by William Moxon of Fishlake cum Sykehouse (c1660-1718), Will proved 11 Jul 1719. The tree was compiled early in the 20th century. In the early 1920’s, a Winifred Moxon, spinster, was living in Ashby de la Zouch, and met the late Eileen Jessop Price, née Moxon (of Tree MX01). They wondered if they were related. Winifred gave Eileen a copy of her family tree, headed by William Moxon of Sykehouse. They were not related. Many, many years later, after Winifred had died (she was born 1875) Eileen passed the tree to John Moxon Hill. This was transposed into MX24 so that the Society could be ready if a New Member joined the Society who could be identified as descended from William Moxon. The Tree has since been merged with MX17, the “Moxons of Thorne”, and is now known as “the Moxons of Fishlake and Thorne” and is now headed by the father of William Moxon of Sykehouse, about whom we currently have no information other than that he would have been born in the early part of the 17th Century.

MX25 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord) – The initial research for Tree MX25 was undertaken by John G. Clark of Leatherhead, a Moxon Society Member, who sent a copy to Jimmy Moxon. The tree is headed by William Moxon, who married Mary Page in 1638 at Little Downham, and died in 1663. William’s origins are not known, but it is thought that he may have worked on land drainage schemes in Yorkshire, and then moved to Cambridgeshire, when work started on the drainage of the Fens.

There were three Richard Moxons, born in Little Downham, whose ancestry/descendants pose problems. One was baptised in 1748, the son of John and Alice Moxon (MX25/41) and another baptised in 1740, the son of John and Mabel Moxon. One married Mary Hood in 1766, and then Elizabeth Olphen in 1777. This Richard is shown as heading Tree MX41. The other married Chamberlain Burgess in 1771, and is shown as heading tree MX40. The third Richard Moxon was born in Downham c1776 (according to Census Records). He married Ann Bailey in 1806. We have not been able to establish his parentage. He is shown as heading tree MX39.

The source of the information is shown at the bottom of each “box” on the tree, where annotations are:

John G. Clark (Member) of Leatherhead JGC

At the top right-hand side of each box the number represents the computer’s reference number for the individual, and at the left-hand side (if shown) the number shows whether the child was the child of the father’s first or second wife – if known.

John G Moxon’s document “Pedigree of MOXON in the Isle of Ely, Cambridgeshire, together with short pedigrees of the related families of COLE and GRIMDITCH, also of Downham” contains many detailed notes and comments. It should be studied in conjunction with this tree, which after all is basically his information laid out in a single tree.

Moxon Magazine No. 15 (April 1995) carried a comprehensive article about the Moxons of the Isle of Ely.

The IGI shows one entry for Moxon, earlier than the entry for William’s marriage to Mary Page in 1638. This reads “Joane Moxon daughter of John and Katheren Moxon baptised 23 November 1599 at Downham.” If this entry was correct, it could “spoil” the theory that William Moxon moved from Yorkshire to the Fens at the time the Fen Drainage schemes were commenced. However, John Clark has had the entry checked against the original Parish Register, and found it to be in error.

While converting the John Moxon Hill MX25 chart to GEDCOM to upload it to Ancestry, further research by Philip Lord expanded it from 239 entries to over 970, including many descendants in the USA (Illinois and Texas). Another branch emigrated to New Zealand and the tree includes Archbishop Sir David Moxon.

MX38 – Judith Moxon of Hull did an enormous amount of research, particularly in relation to the “Kingston upon Hull” Moxons and in addition determined the origins of John Moxon of Yarmouth, whose ancestors came from Leeds, via Hull. This “link” was shown on Tree MX38 (a tree composed entirely of Judith’s research, which was eventually merged with MX05)

MX39, MX40, MX41 (Tree Guardians: Ken Moxham & Elizabeth Wright) – There were three Richard Moxons, born in Little Downham, whose ancestry/descendants pose problems. One was baptised in 1748, the son of John and Alice Moxon (MX25/41) and another baptised in 1740, the son of John and Mabel Moxon. One married Mary Hood in 1766, and then Elizabeth Olphen in 1777. This Richard is shown as heading Tree MX41. The other married Chamberlain Burgess in 1771, and is shown as heading tree MX40. The third Richard Moxon was born in Downham c1776 (according to Census Records). He married Ann Bailey in 1806. We have not been able to establish his parentage. He is shown as heading tree MX39.

Trees compiled since John Moxon Hill’s death in 2010 follow below.

MX76 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord) was compiled in 2016 by Philip Lord; much information supplied by Gwen Moxham. It is a large tree containing over 1,600 individuals, headed by William Moxon who died in Lytham, on the Fylde coast in Lancashire, in 1796. He was probably born c1725. Compared to the other Moxon Society trees it is unusual on two fronts. Firstly, although the surname was originally recorded as “Moxon” it quickly became “Moxham” and all descendants appear to use the Moxham spelling. Secondly, the family at the head of the tree were 18th Century Roman Catholics and many of their descendants remained Catholic. The probability analysis of the results of a Family Tree DNA test undertaken in 2017 by a direct male descendant of William showed a high probability (72%) of a link to both MX05 (Leeds) and MX17 (Fishlake & Thorne) and strong probability (48%) of a link to MX25 (Little Downham) indicating that if the links could be found these four trees (MX05, MX17, MX25, MX76) are prime candidates for merging. There was also a weaker association (so further back in time) with MX01 (31%). The DNA results also proved that there was no connection with the Moxhams of Wiltshire and Ireland.

 

The kind of genealogy software that we now take for granted was not available. He used a custom computer program that was quite restricted in its capabilities. The programme was limited to a maximum of 255 people per tree and providing that the resultant tree size did not occupy more than 12 sheets in width, and no more than 20 generations (three sheets deep). That was the reason why the Moxons of Silkstone MX27, MX26 and MX15 were produced as separate interlocking trees. A copy of the JMH original chart for each of the above trees is available by clicking on the tree number. The sheets for each Tree are labelled with the tree reference, and a page and letter reference. All sheets numbered 1 form the top row, with 1A on the left. Sheets numbered 2 form the second row, with the letters lining up vertically. If there is a third row (as for MX01) then those sheets are numbered 3. Where a sheet would not contain any information, it is not supplied e.g. there is a sheet MX14 sheet 1D, but no sheet 2D.

As the number of individuals in the Trees grew far beyond the numbers recorded above, John’s original numbering system for individuals within Trees was generally abandoned, but his numbering system used to identify individuals in his trees remains the easiest way to refer to individuals nearer the top of Trees when discussing possible tree mergers, as used below.

Trees bundled into this group which were compiled by John Moxon Hill:

MX08 (Tree Guardian: Mike Moxon), was headed by George Moxon who married Martha Dinsdale in Leeds in 1724. In 2016 the Tree Guardian, Mike Moxon, discovered a link to MX57 and subsequently MX57 was merged into MX08. The tree, which now contains over 400 individuals, has been taken back a generation further, headed by Joseph Moxon who must have been born around 1670 as he married Mary Alderson in Leeds in 1692.

MX09 (Tree Guardian: Graham Jagger), is headed by Richard Moxon 1785 of Walworth, London

MX10 (Tree Guardian: Val McCourt), is headed by Thomas Moxon 1758-1848 of Ardsley, Yorkshire

MX18 was quickly superseded by MX21

MX20 is headed by Samuel Moxon, who lived in Thornhill, Yorkshire, and was buried 8 Jan 1820 at Flockton, aged 66.

The probability analysis of the results of an Oxford Ancestors DNA test in 2005 undertaken by a direct male descendant of Samuel showed no Y-Line (male descent) relationship with any other Moxon or Moxham Tree tested thus far.

MX20 was constructed by copying information from a tree sent to the Society by Christopher J. Moxon, (son of John Lister Moxon of Kirkheaton) together with some minor additions extracted from the IGI. Chris’s information is annotated “MR37” – the “MR” numbers are the Moxon Archive references for early correspondence received by Jimmy and the late Dick Moxon of Southampton, prior to Jimmy’s book “The Moxon of Yorkshire” being published.

MX21 (Tree Guardian: Harriet Cousins), was originally headed by William Moxon of Pontefract, born c1649. Subsequent research took the tree farther back in time and the tree is currently (2017) headed by Ralph Moxon, Tailor, who owned property in Ferry Fryston and was buried in Pontefract in 1598.

The link between the “Williams of Pontefract” and the Hull Moxons is clearly established by reference to the “Grant of Arms” to John Moxon of Hull. At the time of the grant, 16 September 1806, John Moxon recorded a pedigree of his family. John was born 21 July 1775 at Hull, son of Richard Moxon of Hull by his first wife Anne, daughter of John Dixon of Hull. This Richard Moxon was born 2 August 1742, son of William Moxon of Pontefract by his wife Sarah, daughter of John Varley.

The Moxons of Yorkshire incorrectly shows the above Richard (born 1742) as the son of an earlier William Moxon of Pontefract, born 1729. (This latter “Richard” was in fact the uncle of “Richard Moxon, Banker and Merchant of Hull”). Apart from these changes, MX21 generally followed the Pedigree Charts No.5 and No.6 shown in The Moxons of Yorkshire, but with a great deal of added detail, and many more descendants.

The Society is indebted to a number of contributors in compiling this tree (see later references), but in particular to Judith Moxon of Hull, – who is not a descendent of William Moxon of Pontefract – who searched:

Hull Census 1841-1891 (References shown CEN)
Hull Advertiser (References shown H/Adv)
Hull Directories (References shown H/Dir)
Parish Registers (References shown PR)
and many more records.

See also her articles concerning Richard Moxon, Banker and Merchant, of Hull, in the Moxon Magazines dated October 1992 and April 1993.

In addition to Richard Moxon, there were two other important branches to this family- – Benjamin Moxon of Hull, Chemist and Druggist, and William Moxon of Cottingham.

MX28  This is headed by Samuel Moakson of the Old Mill, Tankersley, whose son John Moxon moved to Thurgoland, Silkstone around 1690. It has not yet been possible to link MX28 into the main MX27 Silkstone Tree or to establish a link genetically as the tree currently ends in the 18th Century.

MX32 (Tree Guardian: Graham Jagger), is headed by Robert Moxon c1774-1847 of York.

MX34 (Tree Guardian: Ken Moxon) – the original chart was very sketchy but has since been developed and is headed by Thomas Maxom who married Dorothy Midgeley in 1728 in Sheriff Hutton, Yorkshire

MX36 was compiled from information supplied by Henry Wilkinson Moxon and is headed by James Moxon born c1865 of London and Kent.

MX42 (Tree Guardian: Val McCourt), is headed by John Mokeson c1690 of Barnsley, Yorkshire. The tree contains the famous Moxon triplets born in 1889.

MX43 was headed by Edward Moxsom (son of John Moxsom) who married Caroline Manning in 1837 in Paddington, London with his “Moxsom” descendants. The tree has been taken further back and is currently headed by Edward “Moxham” who with wife Mary raised a family in Newton Tony, Wiltshire between 1703 and 1721.

The probability analysis of the results of an Oxford Ancestors DNA test in 2005 undertaken by a direct male descendant of Edward showed no Y-Line (male descent) relationship with any other Moxon or Moxham Tree tested thus far.

MX45 (Tree Guardian: Sue Moxon), is headed by George Moxon, Tailor, born c1796 in a place unknown but lived and died in London. George is a mystery – he died 7 Oct 1850, so missed the 1851 census. The 1841 census doesn’t give any clues as to his heritage. No George baptised between 1794 and 1796 who is not already accounted for or who did not die in childhood has been found anywhere in the country.

MX47 was the tree of William Moxon & Mary Winter of Ardsley in Yorkshire who emigrated to New Zealand in 1885 and their descendants (this tree is now merged into MX10).

MX51 was headed by Joseph Moxon 1758-1827 and Martha Clayton who are now at the Head of tree MX58 (the trees were merged).

MX53 (Tree Guardian: Paul Moxon), is headed by Robert Mockeson 1549-1596 and was constructed based mainly on the work carried out by Robert Carter of Kirkburton, who was commissioned by “Moxons of Huddersfield” to research the firm’s ancestors, in preparation for the celebration of the firm’s centenary in 1987.

Judith Kaye, Member of Vancouver, is descended from Benjamin Horncastle Moxon, the Founder of Moxons of Huddersfield. She met Robert Carter during her visit to the U.K. in 2000, and as a result, Robert kindly allowed us to use his research material.

In addition to the information from Robert, there was information from the IGI and from a transcription of Kirkburton Parish Registers, Volume 1 from 1541-1654 (excluding March 1617 to March 1627 which are missing), and Volume 2 from 1657 to 1709. In the notes that accompany this transcription is the statement “On 1596 John the son of Thomas and Dorothy was baptised at Almondbury, in the Parish of Saddleworth”. We have not been able to confirm this statement.

Robert has studied the deed of sale of Yew Tree Farm by John and Olive Moakson (No. 41 on tree) in 1771. This defines the lineage from this John back to Thomas (No.5) baptised in 1570, the son of Robert. Although we do not know the baptism of John Moakson (No.21 on tree) that his father was John (7) is confirmed by the deed.

The one weak link in this tree is that we have no proof that John (No.45) was the son of John (No. 41). There is no baptismal record for John (No.45). However, when John and Olive sold Yew Tree Farm, they moved to the hamlet of Causeway Foot. Benjamin (No.46) also lived in Causeway Foot, so this link seems pretty firm.

Thoas (Thomas (No.5) baptised his son Robert in 1593, but he married Dorothie Brodhead in 1595. He must therefore have been married before, with his first wife dying before he married Dorothie. He has therefore been shown as having two wives.

When this chart was drawn up the lineage from Matthew (No.52) down to his granddaughter, being sent in by Wendy Kaye, had still to be added.

MX54 (Tree Guardian: Mike Moxon) – This tree is headed by William Eyers Moxon. For years the identity of William proved elusive but Derek Mason of Cottingham wrote a rather convincing article in the Moxon Magazine April 2009. In it he proposed that William Eyers Moxon was born 8 Jul 1753 and baptised as “William Eyer” 30 Jul 1753 in Leeds, the illegitimate son of Ann Moxon nee Horncastle of MX12 and John Eyers of Headrow (Leeds), while her husband, attorney John Moxon was alive but spending a lot of time away from home. There was another brother, John Moxon, also son of John Eyers of Headrow, born 17 Jun 1755, baptised as “John Eyer” 18 Aug 1755 in Leeds. John Moxon and John Moxon Jr. (i.e. John Eyer) were witnesses at the marriage of William Eyers Moxon in 1775. As none of this has been proved, the tree will remain separate from MX12, but a note has been made in MX12 explaining the theory.

MX56 was headed by William Moxon born c1855 in Headingly, Leeds. It has been merged with MX54.

MX57 was a small tree headed by the father of James Alexander Moxon who was born in Leeds in 1862. In 2016 the Tree Guardian, Mike Moxon, was able to link it to MX08, with which it was merged.

Trees compiled since John Moxon Hill’s death in 2010 follow below:

MX60 (Tree Guardian: Graham Jagger), compiled by Graham Jagger. It is headed by George Moxon born c1700 who married Elizabeth Buckle in Hull in 1729.

MX62 (Tree Guardian: Graham Jagger), compiled by Graham Jagger, is headed by William Milson Moxon (1809-1892) of Scarborough.

MX63, compiled by Philip Lord in 2015, was headed by George Moxon (1827-1912) of Carlton near Barnsley who was the illegitimate son of Maria Mokeson (of MX42) who died in 1830 while George was an infant. He was raised by his Uncle, Maria’s brother John Mokeson (of MX42) and can be found living with him in the 1851 census. At his marriage in 1854 he gives his father’s name as John (when in fact he had been raised by his uncle John). The tree contains Coronation Street actor Beverley Callard (née Moxon). The probability analysis of the results of a Family Tree DNA test in 2015 undertaken by a direct male descendant of George showed no connection with any known Moxon or Moxham tree, which was expected given the illegitimacy at the head of the tree. The tree was merged into MX42.

MX65 (Tree Guardian: Ken Moxon), is a tree compiled by Ken Moxon in 2015 and was put together from a transcript of the parish records of Welney, Norfolk. It is likely that the Head of the Tree, William Moxon c1738-1804, was the son of William & Mabel Moxon in MX25, baptised 15 Oct 1738 in Little Downham.

MX66 (Tree Guardian: Chris Moxon), the family tree of Dianne Hutchinson, was compiled by Chris Moxon. It was headed by Warmer Moxon, born c1812 whose son James Warmer Moxon born c1830 married Eleanor Thornton in Headingley, Leeds, in 1852.

MX68 (Tree Guardian: Margaret Tucker Moxon), compiled by Margaret Tucker Moxon in 2015 whilst researching two convict brothers who were transported to Australia. It is headed by their parents John Moxon & Phoebe Teel who married in 1794 in Kings Lynn, Norfolk and lived in South Lynn.

MX73 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2016, is headed by Francis Moxon (c1752-1830) of Scotter, Lincolnshire.

MX74 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2016, is headed by Joseph Moxon c1607-1655 of Bolton, Lancashire. A reliable account states that his son Joseph (John) Moxon (1633-1694) married Rachel Ambrose, daughter of Rev. Isaac Ambrose, a leading light in the then new Nonconformist movement, “the Puritan Preacher of Preston” who was ejected from his position as Vicar of Garstang by the Act of Uniformity in 1662. The late 19th Century “Dictionary of National Biography” said that it was Rev. George Moxon (1602-1687) of Springfield Massachusetts who, on his return to England, married the daughter of Isaac Ambrose and this was repeated in the Moxon Society publication, Biography of Rev. George Moxon. However, Isaac Ambrose only had one daughter and no evidence has been found to corroborate the DNB assertion. Following Isaac’s death 25 Jan 1663/4 his wife Judith went to live with their daughter, Rachel Moxon, in Bolton, and was buried inside Bolton Parish Church 24 Aug 1669. Rachel herself was buried in the churchyard there 31 Dec 1669.

MX78 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is headed by John Moakson 1635-1697/8 of Rawmarsh, Yorkshire.

MX80 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is headed by William Moxon c1823 of Tower Hamlets.

MX82 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is headed by Joseph Moxon 1841-1888 of Chelsea.

MX83 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is headed by George Joseph Moxon 1850-1912 of Paddington.

MX85 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is headed by Thomas Moxon born 1794 in Birmingham.

MX86 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is headed by William Moxon c1670-1710 of Liverpool.

MX87 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is headed by William Moxson c1630-1693 of Selby, Yorkshire.

MX88 (Tree Guardian: Philip Lord), compiled by Philip Lord in 2017, is the family tree of Member David Moxon of Nassau, New York, headed by William David Moxon 1871-1939 born in Canada whose father David may have originated in England.

A final word of acknowledgement

In constructing these trees, the Society is indebted to many Moxon researchers. Many more Members, and non-Members, have also contributed to our knowledge of this large Moxon Family – we thank them all.
