  • Notes 
    • According to Arthur J. Jewers in his "Heraldic church notes from Cornwall", Dorothy was a daughter of William Croker, gent. (See St. Stephens)
    • Her descendant, Francis Fox, Esq., surgeon, of Plymouth, possesses at this time a prayerbook with her name, "Dorothy Croker, "written in it.
      Also a small panel, found on making alterations in an old house belonging to the family at St. Germans, with the arms of Fox:
      Erm. on a chev. az. three foxes 'heads crased or, on a canton of the second a fleur-de-lis of the third.
    • In "The Descendants of Francis Fox", by Frances Allen and Joseph Foster, she is called Dorothy Kekewich (see source below)
    • Theodor Fortescue Fox doubted if she was a Kekewich by birth.
      I tend to agree with him after studying the known pedigrees of the Kekewich family.
      She is likely somehow related to the family of William Kekewich, who left her Catchfrench.
    • Her parents as shown by Daryl Lundy ( See The Peerage)
      and Charles Gurney Pease (see The descendants of Henri Fox
      is unproven.

      The wife of Francis Fox was Dorothy Kekewich. She was of good family, being a relation of the family of Kekewich of Exeter, whose house at Catchfrench, in the parish of St. Germans, being than vacant, became their residence at their first settling in Cornwall.
