From http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/a/m/Ruth-Campbell/index.html

 

John Lewis Cox was born on 12th January 1777 and baptised at St Giles in the Fields, London. In 1797 or 1798 his father Edward took John into partnership in his printing busines - in the London Directory of 1799 the firm's name appears as Cox and Son.

On his marriage in 1806 to his cousin Jane Caroline Axtell, he went to live at 27 Red Lion Square, Holborn, London.

John Lewis Cox was the first printer of 'The Builder' in 1842 and became the proprietor of the journal with issue 21. He died at Hardwick House, Ham Common, Surrey on 1st February 1856.

The Builder remained a family-owned company until December 1989; shareholders had to be descendants of Jane Caroline Cox, and at all times at least one of the directors was a family member.

There are now 505 direct descandants of John Lewis Cox and 237 spouses.

John Lewis Cox was my 3rd great-grandfather, and my father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all directors of The Builder.

Since the company was sold a family reunion has been held every 2 - 3 years with an average attendance of 110.
