John Phillips

M, b. 1538, d. 1626

Relationship=10th great-grandfather of David Kipp Conover Jr.
Relationship=9th great-grandfather of Virginia Ailene Swift.
      John Phillips was born in 1538 at Northam, Devon, England. John married Johann Watters on 3-Jul-1559 at Saint Nicholas, Gloucester, Gloucester, England. John married Margaret Porter on 13-Jan-1568/69 at Wraxall near Bristol, Somerset, England. John Phillips died in 1626 at Sussex, England.
      While several other lines of Phillips emigrated to America and Canada, it is the descendants of this John Phillips (with both of his wives) who most profoundly weave through the settlement and history of early America, and (mainly after 1783), through the establishment of modern Canada. You will find clergy, teachers, and military officers, including at least three generals, in the descendants of John Phillips. You will find stalwart Puritans and religious rebels. The strong backbone of the tree is created by the yeomen, farmers, and businessmen, with their wives and families. As you travel outward from this backbone, you will find witches of Salem, and judges of witches, in this family tree; you will find captains and passengers who went down with their ships. Success and failure, comedy and tragedy, abound in the family descent which begins here.

The oldest person found in this tree lived to be 104. Twelve individuals found here passed the age of 100 years. Unfortunately, a much larger number of children died at birth, and about forty mothers died while delivering babies.

Notes:

Not all children of any given family unit have been displayed thoughout this family tree, and we welcome any changes, questions, or additions to this tree. Please contact us by email, with your information, including any type of proof which you can provide. The absence of a child from a family in this tree may simply indicate that such a child has not been posted, not that you have an error in your files.

We welcome any and all changes and additions. Old photos, documents, and letters, may be sent by email. Photos of grave markers, newspaper notices, and wills are always welcome.

Some, not many, very loose fragments and incomplete or incorrect files have been left in this tree. They may be work in progress, or simply items which are waiting for family member input to repair. If you see anything really silly, please let us know. This tree has over 15000 individuals, and is bound to have some few small glitches. I find one or two every week.

Connections shown in this family tree, with Mayflower passengers, Winthrop fleet passengers, and United Empire Loyalists, are accurate, but do not constitute sufficient proof to gain automatic membership in the venerable societies of descendants which exist today (June, 2001). Anyone interested in establishing such membership should visit the appropriate websites for membership information and applications. Any such memberships may involve the payment of fees, in addition to the proof of descent.

I do not always post sources. This would require at least ten or twelve thousand additional notations. Generally I can produce sources on request, given time. However, every detail shown here has a source. Not one entry is purely speculative.

There has been much contact (by email) with living family members, descendants of individuals found in this tree. In some cases, long-accepted family legends have been shown to be incorrect. Be prepared to have an open mind, if you approach us with a problem. In all cases, it is better to be closer to the truth.

Many generations of ancestors found here lived their lives in accordance with religious beliefs and political affiliations which must always be treated with the greatest respect. We who are living, are here because of the consequences of lives which were lived in such ways. Our ancestors would hope and expect that these seeds would be sewn in us, as we hope the same in our children and grandchildren. In the presence of our ancestors here, all who participate in this family tree, are expected to step into these shoes which were made for us. Our ancestors made us; we are them.

God bless John Phillips and all who follow him.
