Was Ann (Cox) Morse (md. 1629) a daughter of Ambrose Cox and Alice Heale (Magna Carta descendant)?

+2 votes
Because this involves Magna Carta ancestors, I am wondering if there is any proof that Ann Cox (married in 1629 to Anthony Morse) was a daughter of Ambrose Cox and Alice Heale (married 1604). Lots of online trees claim this, but as is so often the case, sources seem scarce, lacking, or unreliable.

     Both the 1604 and 1629 marriages occur in Marlborough, Wiltshire, so that is a good sign.  But that doesn't prove Ann is a daughter of Ambrose Cox and Alice Heale (Alice being the Magna Carta descendant).  Just my luck, Ann will be a niece, and Alice Heale won't be her mother.  But it would be very nice if it is true.

Hi! Sorry for the delayed reply. I've looked in Douglas Richardson's Magna Carta Ancestry and find no mention of her, her husband, or next generation up. Running up the tree, I saw Champernoun. Richardson in Vol 1, p 411 has Richard Champernoun m Katherine Daubeney. Isabel Bonville m Richard Champernoun is in Vol II, p 59, and it follows the tree down to Philip Champernoun m Katherine Carew, but does not continue with John - saying of him only that John, Esq. was their son. So no help from Richardson's ''Magna Carta Ancestry.''

I have her ancestry as Unknown.  What is the evidence she is a daughter of Ambrose cox?

Ambrose Cox and Alice Heale were married in 1604, St. Mary's Church, Marlborough, Wiltshire.  Ann Cox was married in the same church in 1629, so they are almost certainly related.  Whether she was their daughter (as often claimed) or perhaps a niece, is the question.  If there is no hard evidence, perhaps their status should be "uncertain" parents.
