Lang Syne English Family Information History Fact Book - Cox
A name with a number of colourful points of origin, ‘Cox’ has been present throughout the British Isles from the earliest times.
Many of its bearers have achieved international acclaim and distinction in endeavours and pursuits ranging from exploration and the sciences to politics, music and the stage.
In the sciences, Professor Brian Cox, born in Greater Manchester, has been responsible for popularising not only astronomy but also science in general.
It was following a brief career in the world of music, as keyboard player in pop bands, that he radically altered his career path to become a leading particle physicist and presenter of a number of popular television science programmes.
The dramatic and inspiring tale of the Coxes, of both yesteryear and today, is presented here.
