The records of Thomas and Richard Cox, so far as they are known, are fully reported in "The Cox Family in America" published in 1912 by Henry Miller Cox. This book is now out of print but copies may be found in the library of the United States in Washington DC and in other libraries in the larger cities of the country.
Thomas Cox was known to be a Quaker, and since John, Thomas, and Richard were all Quakers, and their names appeared in the Quaker records of Pa about this time, it is assumed that they were sons of Thomas.
Two locations have been listed as his place of Christening, St Luke, Chelsa London and St. Stephens, Coleman St. London
