1906 Alice COX (Temporary transfer of licence from James H COX, deceased.)
1908 John WILCE (Temporary transfer from Alice COX)
1909 Alice COX


FamilySearch gives;

Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
James H Cox Head M 37 Inn keeper. Bagpath, Gloucestershire
Alice Cox Wife F 38 Forest Of Dean, Gloucestershire
Dorothy J Cox Daughter F 2 North Nibley, Gloucestershire

Not needed now, but would be nice to see the image, hence neighbours & precise location in the village. James' birthplace Bagpath is a hamlet in the western Cotswolds southwest of Nailsworth, quite near Nibley.

So was young James born in Bagpath, but not baptised until a year ot two later when parents had moved back to the Forest ?

Which makes this a perfect fit, albeit odd area, perhaps father is a journeyman blacksmith ?

However it now gets rather tricky, as there is another James Cox born abt 1864 in Badgeworth Glos, "similar" to Bagpath Glos, plus several more Jas Cox in the Bagpath, Tetbury area alone ...

Try searching for parents, the 1881 gives them still in Oxford.
Young James Henry is known as Harry, hence didn't find him earlier !
