Hi,

I've had a quick look at Henry Cox and Harriet Conley to see if I can help you further.

Having a look at birth records and census's it seems that Henry Cox was born in Kennington, Kent. Which is east Ashford area. Harriet Conley it seems was born in Brabourne, Kent. Which is approx. 5 miles from Kennington. They are both in the 1871 census at the home of Harriet's sister in Brabourne, a month before their marriage. Harriet shown as sister and Henry shown as lodger and a brick field labourer.

I found Henry along with a John Cox who was born 1844 in Kent, on the 1851 census. They are both shown as orphans, living at Blean Union Workhouse, Herne, Kent. If this is the correct Henry Cox you would need to order his birth certificate to get his parents names. I'm not sure if there are any records for Blean Union Workhouse in the Kent archives but it won't be hard to find out. There is some info on the workhouse here

I had a quick look at baptism records and there was one possibility on the familyseach site


parents: Henry Cox,&#8203; Catharine
name: Henry Cox
gender: Male
baptism/christening date: 15 May 1842
baptism/christening place: Kennington, Kent, England
father's name: Henry Cox
mother's name: Catharine

system origin: England-EASy

Well there's some info for you to be getting on with. If you would like further help I'd be happy to help.
