NOTE: Edward Phillips was previously noted here as a child of Jacob Phillips UE. This is not the case.
Edward Phillips (1787-1840) and his brother Henry Phillips are NOT sons of Jacob Phillips UE. They certainly never applied for land as sons of Jacob Philips, while every other child alive in 1836 when Jacob was finally added to the UE list did.
Both Edward and Henry Phillips were living in York Township, and married daughters of Jacob Clocks.
Marriages at St. James Anglican Church in Town of York, Upper Canada.
