Thank you. I have been looking for this information. As far as John Fox "Captain" is concerned all I have is what I have been able to attain from forums and the Virginia archives regarding the trading company with Elizabeth Convers father.
Example: John Fox, Sr. was born in England about 1602. He and John Pickernell, probably a close relative, were engaged in the trading business with his father, Henry Fox, and they continued that business after his father's death in 1625. His wife evidently was Elizabeth Convers, sister of John Convers.
There are numerous references to John Fox, Sr. in English records. On March 7, 1639, he witnessed the will of Alexander Comber (alias Conver), of London, who made bequests of twenty shillings each to his cousins, Isabell Fox and John Fox, Jr. He was commander of the "Whitehorse and Currycombe" who complied with the order of August 8, 1650, that "merchants trading to Virginia" go in companies to secure their ships against enemies of the Commonwealth. He was named in the will dated November 2, 1653, of John Convers as Captain John Fox, commander of the "Thomas and Anne." John Convers made bequests to Captain John Fox and to Mrs. Elizabeth Fox. He was recorded during 1665-1656 as the commander of the "Thomas and Anne." He sent to Virginia an order dated April 1, 1669, by his son, John Fox, Jr., concerning his business affairs there. He was designated then as living in Stephney Parrish, County Middlesex, England. His will was probated in 1665 and he was then recorded as John Fox of Wapping Wall, Stephney Parrish, County Middlesex, England.
