The Fox family is a family with several members in the acting and related professions over a number of generations. Robin Fox (1913-1971), an actor and theatrical agent, and his wife Angela Worthington, actress and daughter of the English playwright Frederick Lonsdale, had three sons: the actors James and Edward Fox, and Robert, who became a theatrical agent. Their grandchildren include the actors Emilia, Freddie, Laurence and Lydia Fox. Robin Fox was the grandson of Samson Fox (1838-1903), a British engineer, industrialist, and philanthropist.
Robin Fox was born in the parish of St George Hanover Square, Westminster, the son of Hilda Louise (Alcock), an actress, and Arthur William Fox, the son of industrialist Samson Fox. He was related to the great Hanbury and Neilson acting dynasty, through his mother, whose sister was the notable stage actress Lily Hanbury. Their first cousin Julia Neilson was married to the actor Fred Terry, brother of the late nineteenth century star Ellen Terry. Altogether, five of Hilda and Lily Hanbury's first cousins were actors in the days of Victorian and Edwardian Theatre.
