I am in contact with many descendants of Peter COXON, blacksmith of Spondon and operate an e-mail newsletter to advise on any new findings, members etc. In October 2002 my husband Barry and I attended a COXON family reunion in Spondon. Unfortunately it coincided with one of the worst storms of the decade and many people who wanted to attend were unable to. We hope to have another reunion in the future.
