The Moxon Society is a One-Name Family History Society, dedicated to the name Moxon, and its many variants. Each of us has carried out research into our own families and we have joined together to exchange ideas and, more importantly, to pool the proven information that we have discovered about our ancestors. This is the main benefit of membership as it allows one to link into other Moxon family trees that have been researched and submitted to the Society, now by using the Members’ Only website which has searchable indices of Wills, Magazine articles, of People and more..
The Society was formed in 1991, four years after its founder, James Roland (Jimmy) Moxon had published his book The Moxons of Yorkshire. He followed this up with The Moxon Magazine, and he and the late Dick Moxon organised gatherings of Moxon family members in Leeds in 1989 and 90. Since the Society was officially established, an annual gathering has been held in many towns and cities in England.
There is also an active Moxons Down Under group for Australians and New Zealanders and various contacts in Canada, United States, Africa and other countries.

But our current preferred communications channels are:
And as part of our ongoing development, this website will soon have an in-site blog which we hope Members will use to share information and queries with each other.
