Fox was born in Pinner, Greater London, England, to Anglo-Irish parents. She moved to Ireland in 1907 and enrolled in Ballingeary College. She married Claude Chevasse in 1917, and the couple moved to Galway, where they maintained an Irish-speaking household. Cheavasa was received into the Catholic Church in 1935.[1]

Besides poetry, her literary output included fiction, drama and biography.[1]


Padraic Colum included her poem, "The Fairy Lover," in his 1922 Anthology of Irish Verse.[2]
