Harry Hancox was born on 28 April 1836 in Aston, Warwickshire, to Thomas Elias Hancox and Frances Heeley. He had four siblings, Thomas Elias Hancox (1831–?), William Hancox (1833–?), Frances Hancox (1838–1852) and Emma Hancox (1847–?).

In the 1841 Census, Harry was listed as living with his mother Frances (who was a brace and belt Manufacturer), brothers William (age 8) and Thomas (age 10) and sister Frances (age 2) but no mention is made of his father.[1]

On 28 May 1867 he married Maria Mary Hancox (née Merrett) at the church of St Stephen the Martyr in West Derby, Lancashire.[2] They had four children: Harry Merrett Hancox, Frank Heeley Hancox, Charles Edward Hancox, and Richard James Hancox.

By 1871, they were living at 67 Woodville Terrace, Everton, Liverpool, and his occupation was hosier and glover.[3][4] They later moved to 30 Edge Lane, Toxteth Park, where he died of bronchitis on 18 January 1885[4] and was buried on 22 January 1885 at Toxteth Park Cemetery in Liverpool.[5]
