Capt. John Fox, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Capt. John Fox might describe his life as follows.

I descend from the Fox family of Great Missenden Parish in Bucks County, England, whose arms appear on a memorial to my son, Henry Fox, in historic St. John’s Church, King William County.
I was born in England, a son of Thomas Fox and his wife, Elizabeth, and was not yet 20 when I arrived in Jamestown in the Fall of 1625 aboard my father’s ship Elizabeth, named, of course, for my mother. Learning of my father’s death, I gathered his possessions, and delivered them to the provost marshall by 28 November 1625 for delivery to London.
I commanded several trading vessels that sailed the Atlantic between Virginia and London. I was ordered to command The White Horse and Curry Comb on a voyage to Virginia in 1650 and was master of the Resurrection in 1662 when my brother, Stephen Fox, a passenger on my vessel made his will remembering our four other brothers, and our sister.
The name of my wife is unknown. Earlier I mentioned our son Henry, who was ancestor to about a dozen congressmen, 4 governors, and more than 70 state legislators. Were likely parents also of Jane, Ann, and John Fox.
I was living when I bought 200 acres in Gloucester County from Thomas Hanks about 1682, but was dead by April 1683 when the governor granted land to my “son & heir” Henry Fox.

John Fox receipt
This is the order to the provost marshall. 

Yt [That] it is ordered yt the provost marshall shall give a discharge to the purser of the Elizabeth for the receipte of those goods wch he hath received of John Fox and John Pickernall, who died at sea, And to take the charge of sendinge of the tobacco made of those goodes into England.

While this record is unclear, evidently only John Pickernall died at sea, not John Fox.
