400 Years of Maddoxes
begins in England, UK
It ends in Missouri, USA
What is the basic heritage our Maddox grandfathers handed down through the generations to us today?
Most of them were entrepreneurs. They took chances ~ sometimes winning, sometimes losing ~
but always ready for a new challenge.
They were hard working. They carried their own weight. But at the same time, they said,
"Be your own man."
Our list of direct ancestors below begins with the oldest ~ Thomas Maddocks, born probably England c.1585, died in Virginia ~ and ends with Grant, born in Kentucky, died in Missouri. This is the story of Thomas Maddocks and his children over 400 years.
Of interest is that our name was spelled Maddocks for the first 150 years in America. Then it was "shortened" to Maddox.
