His brother Thomas played in 1889.

Pre-VFL Players

Also served as captain during 1889, though it's not sure if this was permanent or as a fill in. Some sources say he was captain continuously from 1885.

His brother D. Fox also played from 1889 to 1892

Some sources have him playing from 1886 to 1896.

May have been the "Eddy Fox" shown as playing in Adelaide in the late 1870's and early 1880's.
