I have managed to trace my branch of the Philip family back to 1729 when John Philip
married Margaret David. It is entered in the BT for Cilymaenllwyd but no further
information e.g date.John then lived at Pant-Yr-Odyn in Cilymaenllwyd until 1767. He had
three sons Erasmus,Thomas and John. Erasmus I have traced to Abernant via Henllan Amgoed.
Does anyone know who the father or brother of this man might be. My Grandfather thinks his
name is David and that he married a Jane from Pwlldyfach. According to Carmarthen Records
Office the only Pwlldyfach is in Abernant and Maj. Francis Jones says it was owned by
Theophilus Thomas and lived in by another Thomas. NLW have so far been unable to find
anything to help.
Any help would be gratefully received.
