Elizabeth, Julia, Mary, Louisa and Frances were listed as the children of William Henry Cox in the 1851 census in 12 Pavillion Place, Kemptown, Brighton, Sussex, England. Julia, Mary and Frances were listed as the children of William Henry Cox in the 1871 census in 38 Brunswick Square, Hove, Sussex.
     Julia Cox married Archdeacon John Henry Gray on 3 October 1876 in St Andrew's Old Church, Hove, Sussex. Their descendant Ron Gray wrote: His home parish was listed as St Martin's in the Fields. That of Julia Cox was given as Hove. The rank and professions of JHG's and Julia's fathers were given as Gentleman and Esquire respectively. Bishop Charles B. Alford, DD conducted the service. The witnesses listed were William Henry Cox (Julia's father), Mary A. Cox (maybe a sister or sister-in-law) and Cassie Jones (this is possibly the Caroline Jones, daughter of a family friend of Julia's father referred to in WHC's Will).
Their marriage occurred while JHG was on his first home leave after 23 years of service in Canton.China. JHG was 53 and Julia was 37. After the marriage, Julia later returned to China with JHG. During the long voyage to China she became pregnant with twins. She had a bad confinement and they left Canton when she was well enough after a stay of 14 months. The girl twin died on the voyage back to England, survived by her twin brother, Harry.
He later brought his wife, Julia Cox, back to China. During the trip she became pregnant with twins. Apparently she had a very bad confinement, and they left Canton 8 June 1878 when she was well enough, after a stay of only 14 months. Due to JC's illness, it was decided to return to England with all haste. The trip back to Britain was by ship via Saigon, Singapore, Ceylon and Aden. (Fourteen Months in Canton, by Mrs. Gray, Macmillan Publishing, London, 1880). The girl twin died on the voyage back to England, survived by her brother, Harry.
     Julia Cox and Archdeacon John Henry Gray travelled to Canton, China, in January 1877. They left Liverpool 13 Jan 1877 by ship and arrived in New York 2 stormy weeks later. They then traveled by train across North America via Niagara Falls, Chicago, Salt Lake City to San Francisco. Then there was another stormy ocean voyage, this one lasting 4 weeks to Japan. The final leg was a trip by ship to Hong Kong and finally Canton. In all the trip was 10 weeks in duration.
     She wrote letters back to her mother, EAH, while she was in China. There were apparently 2 sets of letters: one set of a personal nature and one set destined for later publication (from JCFG). It is not known if the former set has survived. The latter letters were published in a book, Fourteen Months in Canton, by Mrs Gray, London: MacMillan and Co. 1880.



.
     Julia Cox lived at Hunsdon, Hertfordshire, in the 1880s.
     Administration of the estate of Emily Augusta Hooper was granted to Julia Cox, on 10 December 1883 The estate was valued at £2640/6/9. With a few exceptions the estate was divided between her daughters Julia Gray, Mary Ann Cox and Frances Hughes. What had become of her other 2 daughters at this point is not known. Other beneficiaries were noted as follows:
-Jane Reece Thomas and Ann Reece Thomas, her cousins, 100 pounds and a ring each
-her servants who at the time of her death had been in service for 2 years or longer, 19 pounds each
-Audrey Frances Gordon Gray, a gold watch
-Ronald Evelyn Gordon Gray, a gold watch
-Gordon Harry Granville Gray, bookcase and books
Witnesses to the Will were:
-John Cooke Hewlett of Beckenham, Kent
-Alice Gertrude Cox of Guildford, Surrey. She was widowed on 17 March 1890 on the death of her husband Archdeacon John Henry Gray.
     Julia Cox lived at Bruntisfield House, Harrow on the Hill, Middlesex, from 1890.
     Julia Cox and Audrey Frances Gordon Gray appeared on the 1901 census in 34 Royal Avenue, Chelsea, London. Julia (Palina crossed out) Gray was a boarder in a lodging house, aged 63, widow, living on own means, born London, with Frances Audrey Gordon Gray, single aged 19, born Hunsdon, Hertfordshire.
     Julia Cox travelled to London, on 6 May 1912 per the "King William I". They embarked in Genoa.
     Julia Cox made a will dated 6 October 1914 in 164 Oakwood Court, Kensington. Julia's will consists of 6 typed pages. The executors were appointed as follows: - Ronald Evelyn Gordon Gray (son), - Frances Audrey Gordon Gray (daughter), - Richard Francis Henry King (lawyer).
Aside from a bequest of 100 pounds to JCFG, the estate was given to her 3 children, but not equally. There were small immediate cash payments to Ronald and Frances and Frances was to receive '...all my watches jewels trinkets personal ornaments and wearing apparel including lace and all my silver plate and plated goods furniture linen china glass books manuscripts pictures prints statutary musical instruments articles of virtu and all other articles of personal domestic or household use or ornament and all wines liquors and consumable stores and provisions' (note: no punctuation in the Will for this passage). The remainder was divided between REGG and Frances Audrey Gordon Gray.
Harry Granville Gordon Gray will only receive the income from 5,000 pounds and upon his decease, the principle shall be divided between her other 2 children, Ronald and Frances. The reason for not giving Harry an share equal to the others was stated, 'he has not shown that consideration to England which I consider due from him.' Furthermore, JC removed the benefits Harry was to receive under provisions of his father's (JHG) Will. JC was clearly all but cutting Harry from the Will of both she and her husband.
There was a codicil dated 9 Feb. 1917. JC increased the benefits to Harry to the income generated on 7,000 pounds (up from 5,000). After his death, his widow, Maria, would receive an annuity of 100 pounds.
The witnesses to the Will and Codicil were: Elizabeth Flower, 164 Oakwood Court (JC's home), parlourmaid, - Salina Hocking, 164 Oakwood Court, cook, - Noel Walker, 4 Cecil Court, S. Kensington, spinster, - George Kruger, 124 Cheque Walk, Chelsea SW, artist. (JC's future son-in-law; it is worth noting that he changed his name to Kruger-Gray after his marriage to Audrey Frances Gordon Gray; at this point it was before his marriage and he was still a Kruger).
     Julia died on 24 January 1921 in Kensington, Middlesex, aged 82. She was late of 164 Oakwood Court, Kensington, Middlesex, aged 75.
     Her will was proved on 16 April 1921. The value of the estate was £32,696.11.1.

The executors were named as follows: Henry Cox (brother) of Boxgrove, Guildford, Surrey; Alfred Cox (brother) of Prendales Ware, Hertford; Thomas Tandy, lawyer.
The address of WHC was given as 38 Brunswick Square, Brighton, Surrey.
In the Will, EAH was to receive the house for her use during her life and '...all my household furniture plate linen books and other household effects and my horses and carriages wine and spirits and consumable articles for her own and absolute benefit...'. Also included was a payment of 400 pounds and an annuity of 1,800 pounds. The 3 daughters were to receive the residue of the estate after the death of their mother and after settlement with other beneficiaries. WHC formulated a trust in his Will and described at length his instructions for the financial management of the assets. He appeared to have freehold and leasehold properties that needed managing for maintenance and tenancy. He also had stocks, bonds and mortgages and he specified what manner of such financial instruments the trustees of his estate were to consider for any new acquisitions.
Other beneficiaries of the Will:
-William Whinney Gearing, foreman, 100 pounds plus an annuity of 104 pounds

He added a codicil to his will on 2 January 1879.

Bennett. - William Henry Leggatt, butler to WHC. - Alfred Cox, brother to WHC. - Thomas Tandy, solicitor.
The Will makes reference to 3 daughters (no names given) and so it could be assumed that either 2 of the original 5 daughters had either died by this point or were cut out of the Will. EAH's Will of 14 Feb. 1883 names 3 daughters as Julia, Mary Ann and Frances. Presumably they are the same 3 as in WHC's Will, but it doesn't answer the question of what happened to the other 2.
