John b.1840 is the son of Michael and Elizabeth (Farmbrough) Rose (see separate photo) and he is the 2 x great grandson of my 6x great grandfather Cozens Read.
John’s wife is Sarah Ann Cox b.1846 and she is the sister to John Hughes Cox who wrote the Diary Extract below.
I have included a transcript of Diary Extracts from Annie Humphreys and John Hughes Cox on another page here – see the menu on the right – and will add part of John’s diary extract here as it is appropriate!
“1866 12 Feb. This has been an eventful day to Sarah Ann Cox. John Rose has been from Eythrope. They are very happy”.
(I think maybe this would be when they got engaged)?
