 Homersham COX is of interest because Sarah Mathew is the Aunt of Oswald Cox  and Sarah also died at the same place as Homersham only 7 yrs earlier.

He was born at Newington, Surrey, the fourth son of Edward Treslove, and was educated at Tonbridge School. He entered Jesus College, Cambridge in 1839, graduating B.A. in 1844, and M.A. 1852. He was admitted to the Inner Temple in 1845, and was called to the Bar 1851.[1]

Made a County Court judge in Wales, Cox caused a furore by saying that perjury was endemic in Welsh courts. He was shortly moved to Kent.[2]

Cox died on 10 March 1897, at Marl Field House, Tonbridge.[1]
