I'm slow to respond, but I have a Phillips/Philipps family in Myddfai,
Carmarthenshire, from about 1650 to about 1800. Might there be any
connection to your lot? They seem to have been landholders or clergy.

I have come to a brick wall with my Philipps family. I have traced
them across both Carmarthenshire and Pembs and am now completely at
a loss with Roger Philipps who was born in 1596 and said on his
entry to Oxford that he was from Merioneth.
I contacted the archivist there and was told that the family have
their origins in South Wales.
I know that The Philipps family as a whole owned land in North Wales
too. Please does anyone know of a Philipps family member who moved
there. Does anyone have Roger and Walter as names in their Philipps
Roger had a brother Walter whom he asks his wife to look after.
He married Ann Prichard who was sister to Thomas Prichard D.D
Roger died in 1660.
In his Will he mentions his estate at Meline called Rhosymaen but I
have just been told by Bettye that he held that on renewable 21 year
leases from the Bowen family. The family leased it in all for about
105 years to the Philipps family.
Lastly does anyone with greater computer knowledge than I possess
know of any sites which I can view.
