John Greenlaw Foxton was baptised at sea 1811, christened at Port Royal and his birth was registered at Dentford, the royal dockyard in the Parish of Stepney. His father, Captain John Foxton RN was killed in 1817 at St. Helena, and his mother, Wilhelmina, with two young children aged six and five years, lived at Greenwich Road, Kent, at the time.

His mother, Wilhelmina, re-married, to Robert Jones, and moved to Australia some time in the 1820's. Her daughter Ann Foxton married James Robertson, of Sydney. John Greenlaw came to Australia after his mother, as she bore a son, Edward Jones, in 1831 in Camden, NSW.
Records show that he was in the Insolvency Court of Port Phillip in 1842 while a Customs House Agent; and in 1862 while the Chairman of The Provident Institute of Victoria, of 35 Queen Street, Melbourne. (Source: Creswick and Clunes Advertiser)
