David immigrated from England with his father. He was Captain of the Lancaster County Militia and served in the House of Burgess.

David Fox, Jr. was born March 12th, 1647 in Lancaster County, VA to David Fox Sr. and Mary. He served as a captain in the Lancaster County Militia and as Burgess in 1677, 1680 and 1686. David married Hannah Ball, daughter of William Ball and Hannah Atherold about 1670, they had four children.

A December 1677 entry in the Northumberland County Order Book lists payment to "John Moses for taking up a wench of Capt David Fox."

David Fox, Jr. owned at least two plantations in upper Lancaster county; Monaskon and another property that he referred to as "my hill plantation," that was located adjacent to St. Mary's Whitechapel. In 1692 when the General Assembly ordered each county to create port towns to centralize trading and tax collection David Fox and Robert "King" Carter were named as the trustees of Queenstown and established it as the county seat of Lancaster.

When David wrote his will in 1702 he left a gift to Saint Mary's Whitechapel, a gold lettered Decalogue, that is still on display in the sanctuary today.
