  • Notes 
    • 3rd son. Chirurg en apotheker.
    • The descendants of Joseph, our ancestor, were once just as much Falmouth Foxes.
      Having taken to Medicine rather than business, they were less prosperous, had less leisure, and are not included in Carlyle's eulogy.
      When George Croker Fox was at Fowey, building up his shipping agency, Joseph was there too apprenticed to a local doctor. When this training was over, he set up a surgeon and apothecary at Lostwithiel. And finally he moved to Falmouth, which he reached in fact before his brother.
      He married a daughter of Richard Hingston, surgeon or apothecary at Penryn.
      From Joseph (1729 - 1785) doctors have descended in the male line for (so far) seven generations.

      In 1776 Joseph took a small house in Poran Hill for harbouring sick seaman and other poor patients.

      Based partly on notes left by R. Hingston Fox, M.D., and partly on "Caroline Fox", by Wilson Harris (London,1944).
