PHILIP PHILLIPS

Be it England, Wales or Mohawk country in New York & Canada there will be a few references to Philip PHILLIPS.

In a piece That I did for a PHILLIPS Family site,
I had made a few references to Philip PHILLIPS
such as Philip PHILLIPS, the irinmonger of St Pancras
and Birmingham's own Philip Morgan PHILLIPS
and his marriage in 1838

If you have Welsh ancestry it is a sure bet you will get one of these  ;D.  And it's not just a thing of the past  :-\, I have an uncle William Williams, I know a Howard Howard, and a Harry Harries, and I knew of a Watkin Watkins  ???!

(I also have brothers-in-law in my tree who were Thomas Howard and Howard Thomas...but that's another story! :o)

Stafford - Glos, Liles - Glos, Bright- Glos, Webb - Monmouthshire & Glos, Smart - Glos, Smith - Glos
Sullivan - Ireland, Jones (oh dear! Almost as bad as Smith), Walker - Somerset, Llewellyn
And, no don't laugh...Crump...I think it's great!

And of course, if I ever do manage to do a successful look up it is crown copyright and all that legal stuff!

The blacksmith, fishmonger & Sgt. Jack Jackson

 8) Then we have the likes of John JOHNSON, Jack JACKSON
and Isaac ISAACSON.

You may find Isaac working with boots or tailoring in such
places as Spitalfields or Mile End.

Or, John JOHNSON - the occupations & places run the gamut
from the Hackney blacksmith to the Twickenham
perfume traveller. 

I wonder if  Twickenham's  Johnson and his perfume bottles ever travelled north and met up with the likes of the Cumberland fishmonger, John Johnson, or Scotland's
Sgt. Jack Jackson.

How about this one

My Paternal Grandmother was Mary Williams and her mother was Catherine Thomas, daughter of William Thomas b 1841

My Paternal Grandfather was Hughie Thomas, son of William Richard Thomas. His father was William Thomas b 1817.

Both William Thomas 1817 and William Thomas 1841 were from the same area of Anglesey and both their fathers were also William Thomas! The family names on both sides are William, Hugh, Elizabeth, Margaret and Jane.

Catherine Thomas married John Williams and her brother John married Mary, the sister of John Williams.

So try sorting that one out if you mix your census forms up!  :-\ :-\ :-\

My mother, jokingly, tells my father he is from a family married into each other. Not very amusing for him nor for anyone around them when she says it lol
