In 1865 Mary married George Cox, a policeman of Pilton son of moulder [a brickmaker?] William Cox. Witness Nathaniel Cox may have been George’s brother and also a policeman. If so the brothers were probably born in Nailsea, Somerset, sons of William and Mary.

George and Mary’s son John Oram Cox was baptised in Ditcheat, the register stating that the family lived in Pilton and George was a policeman. At the time of the two census returns during their marriage Mary was with her father. Carolyn has not found a census record for George in 1871 or 1881 or a death record that, according to Mary’s census returns occurred between the 1881 and 1891 census days.
