- Born in 1706, John Fox served as the master of the Indian School at the College of William and Mary from 1729 to 1736. He travelled to London to be ordained and licensed to preach by Edmund, Bishop of London. Fox returned to Gloucester County, Virginia and served as rector of Ware Parish in Gloucester County, Virginia. He married Isabel Booth Richards (1704-1742) in 1737 and they had 3 children, only one of whom apparently survived to adulthood. When Fox died, he was buried next to his wife under the chancel of Ware Church in Gloucester County.
