Elizabeth Crosby Fox was the wife of Charles Fox MP. According to HOP she was daughter of Miles Crosby of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and was married in or before 1542. Wikitree has her as Elizabeth, daughter of Miles Crosby of the East Riding of Yorkshire, probably summoned as an archer at Shiptonthorpe in 1538 with his sons, Thomas and William, if the source is to be believed. Seems highly likely that these two Miles Crosbys were different men.

I did look at this when you first put it up but couldn't find anything relevant to the father. I did find a burial though, Bromfield 27 March 1574 "Elizabeth, w of the right worll. Charles Fox, esquire" It's in the published Bromfield parish registers, Shropshire Parish registers by Shropshire Parish Register Society, 1909, on Internet Archive
