thats fantastic thank you!  :o  Interesting to see the witnesses as it shows there could have been connections between the Philips and Thorne George family earlier than the marriage of Hyde and George.  As those names come up elsewhere in the family.  Great to think of life in the Raj! They had quite an adventurous life really.
