The Fox family kept in close touch with England for several generations. Henry Fox went there and his grandson was educated there. Henry arrived in London in May 1655 in the "Thomas and Mary", John fox commander. Henry's father John arrived at Jamestown in the fall of 1625 (at age 19). John Fox commanded several trading vessels that sailed the Atlantic between Virginia and London. he 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 his brother, Stephen Fox, a passenger on John's vessel, made his will remembering his four other brothers and sister.
