Fox, Mashbury

I am researching my ancestry and discovered that my Great Great Grandfather was once the publican at The Fox.  You  record him as the first known resident, listed as 'James' - in fact he was christened John Bush and was born in 1826 at Chelmsford. He married Caroline Clark on 25.12.1846 and had 8 children. Three of them, Carrey, Ezra and Harry would have been born at The Fox (1867, 1869 and 1873) although trace is then lost of Carrey and Ezra who may have died in childhood.
On the 1881 census John is recorded as living in Cobden Road, Leyton and working as a carpenter. He died in 1883. *
