Before he died on 30 Jan 1631/32, Francis, son of James Vaulx (who was called "Medicus" because he was a medical doctor) erected this monumental statue in the parish church of St. Mary the Virgin in Meysey Hampton, Gloucestershire, England. Included are life-size effigies of James flanked by his two wives and small effigies of his 16 children. He is shown with a Shakesperian spade beard. His wife, Editha, is to the left and below her are effigies of 10 of her children. Wife Phillipa is on his right and below her are effigies of her 3 surviving children. A skull is shown at the feet of both Editha and James meaning they were deceased at the time the statue was erected. Accordng to a statement on James' statue, he was called "esquire" and described as "a famous Practioner in Physick and Chirurgery...who deceased March 17, 1626 to the generall loss of the whole Countrey, the private Griefe of all his Friends, more particularly of his sorrowful Wife."
At least 3 of the children of James Vaulx "Medicus" came to Virginia: Robert, known as merchant of London and Virginia; Thomas; and Humphrey. Robert's children included Robert (1651-1685) who married Mary Foxhall and was the progenitor of the Vaulx line of Westmoreland County, Virginia, and James (d.c. 1677) who married Elisheba (last name unknown) whose sons included James and Robert of Dorchester County, Maryland.
