William Cox was baptised on 18th April 1802 at Barnack in Northamptonshire, son of Thomas Cox and Catherine Newborn. William appears to have lived his whole life in Barnack. His father was a blacksmith, which profession William took on.

In 1827, aged about 25, William married a Catherine Mason, also from Barnack. They would go on to have eleven children together, although two died young.

By 1851, William was describing himself as a farmer of 95 acres. In both the 1841 and 1851 censuses, William's widowed mother (also called Catherine) was living with him and his family.

William died in 1856, aged 54. His widow Catherine outlived him by 20 years.
