Charles Elliot Fox

Charles Elliot Fox (1878–1974) was a Anglican missionary and teacher in Melanesia.

Fox was born in Stalbridge, Dorset, England, and educated in New Zealand, graduating from University of New Zealand. He received a degree in theology from St John's College, Auckland in 1902, joined the Anglican Melanesian Mission in 1903 and was ordained the same year.[1]

Around 1924, Fox worked on a dictionary and grammar of the Arosi language of Makira (formerly San Cristobal) in the Solomon Island (ISBN 0858831708), and the Lau language of Malaita (ISBN 0858831015).[1] He also wrote "Beliefs and Tales of San Cristobal" in 1915, later translated and printed in J Royal Anthropological Inst.[2]

In 1932, Charles Elliot Fox declined the post of Bishop of the Melanesian Missionary Church. In the same year he was admitted to the Melanesian Brotherhood.[3]
