      Obituary of Henry Edward Fox November 1915
      Mr. H.E. Fox Dead
      Was Portrait Painter and Member of St. Paul's Church
      The funeral took place yesterday of Mr. Henry Edward Fox of (30) Cornwall street, who was for the past 35 years a member of St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church. Mr Fox was a portrait painter. He was 82 years of age. He was educated in England at St. Edmund's College and in French universities. He is survived by six children; Mrs Flynn (Cecelia) of Bracebridge; Mrs S.M. Lomas (Elizabeth), Dunedin N. Z.; Mrs J Evans (Josephine); Miss Lena (Eleanor), Thomas and Louis. Members of his family are prominent in England and Holland.

      St Edmund's College is situated in Ware, Old Hall Green, Herts. SG11 1DS. " It was an English college at Douay, founded by Cardianal Allen in1568. It educated Catholic priests and laymen until 1793, when it was driven out by excesses of the French Revolution. Many of these refugees, coming to England, joined the Old Hall Green Academy, a Catholic College that had already been established on this site under Bishop Challoner in 1769. On 16th November 1793 Bishop Douglas joined the Douay Refugees to the existing college and thus created St Edmund's College, on the feast day of St. Edmund of Canterbury. ---the school's museum houses books and artefacts concerning the Recusant history over four centuries. Many items come from Douay, and others are associated with the college here."

      The marriage certificate of Emily Josephine Fox, who married Frances Albers, 2'nd October 1867 in St Mary's RC Chapel in the City of London, was married by Henry Edward Fox.
