I have only pointed out this as another source to search, if you check
Sir Thomas Philips entry, he has at least one illegitimate son namely
William Philips by a mother surname Scott, and from this entry of
William you can search for descendants until you find what you are
In the references below it also states
"DESCENDANTS: Thomas had many natural children, many of whom went to Somerset.
(Evans, British Genealogist, book 3 p. C43)"
If you request information and sources on this forum, surely you will find the time to do
We have spent many hours finding ancestors, through the SEYS of Boverton, and can go back
Welsh leaders let alone the English Kings and even William the Conqueror, patience is a

Subject: RE: [Dyfed] Philips of Picton Castle
Can you try and answer my question for me - without me having to wade
So no - I was not aware of this. I have no problem with the Philipps main
line from 1089 down to the 20th Baronet, living today, I think.
It is the minor cadet branches and illegitimate children we are interested
in. Those will generate the DNA candidates we can persuade to test - and,
in fact offer encouragement to any of us who might dream of a Phillips
in remotely to the Picton Castle line.
Are they on this at all?
Like you - I am very busy - and need an answer to that specific question to
decide whether to invest any time in checking this.
Thanks for listening
