    • The Quaker burial ground was located between the present day Bretonside and Exeter Streets in Plymouth, to the south of Charles church in the City Centre. The site was redeveloped and the site now lies under a retail store. All of the bodies were removed and reinterred in the Efford Cemetery in Plymouth. The stones were all listed before removal to Efford.
    • A crude indexing of the graves was carried out at the time of the removal, and it indicated that Joseph Fox was buried in the same plot as his wife Elizabeth.

    Joseph purchased (Great)Wood Cottage, from Edward Yescombe who sold the house in 1798 (having probably only been tenant from 1795) because he was required to go back to sea in his Post-Office Packet, having remained on shore while it was sailed by a substitute for some years after escaping from prison in France. He had to move back to Flushing, which had a view of the packet anchorage at Falmouth. - 1800 - Great Wood Cottage, Mylor, Cornwall, England
