  • Edward and Arthur Foxton died in 1840 and 1843 respectively, as infants.
  • Mary Anne, Caroline, Esther and possibly Amelia or Frances Foxton are the Misses Foxton of Cheltenham, mentioned by John Greenlaw Foxton in his letter, and found below-


We have not heard from any of the Rev. Geo. Foxton’s family for several weeks, and the Indian Judge William Foxton is still in America among the Rev. Geo’s family, settled there viz. four sons, two of them married, of my four maiden cousins (the Misses Foxtons) living at Cheltenham – one died the other day.
