The Cox family consisted of J.C. Cox, his wife Marian, and their ten children.
The Cox family 'Budget', consists of letters and exercise books containing letters circulated by the ten children of J.C. Cox and his wife Marian, and later by the children of married siblings, 1906-85, with family news, comments on events of the day, and many enclosures (e.g. newspaper cuttings, parish and school magazines, photographs, postcards and printed material relating to women's hockey and cricket). Most of the enclosures have been removed, and are now kept as MSS. Eng. misc. c. 1025-34, and MS. Photogr. c. 12.
The 'Budget' was kept latterly by Sir Christopher Cox (1899-1982), at New College, Oxford, and given to the Bodleian by Sir Christopher's brother, A.D.M. Cox, in 1987.Access Conditions
