Cox, Sir George, an English writer, born 1827. He was educated at Rugby and Trinity College, Oxford, and took orders in 1850. He succeeded to the baronetcy in 1877. He is best known as an advocate of the "solar theory" of the interpretation of mythology, on which he has written numerous works, as also a History of Greece and a Life of Bishop Colenso. On the death of that prelate he was elected his successor by the Synod of Natal; but, there being a rival Anglican bishop in the colony, the Crown refused to confirm the appointment.
