As a descendant of George Phillips and Susanna Dyer, I am excited about the new discoveries of our FitzHugh ancestry. I am in the process of verifying the data published in the Nov. 2010 Phillips DNA Newsletter about this new discovery, but I've hit a snag. Can any of the administrators or members help me?
Specifically, on pg. 6 it says "George Phillips, Sea Captain, married (presumably)andand had sons George, John, Richard, and James between about 1690 and 1710. " Footnote 13 indicates the source for this was "Chamberlayne, Saint Paul's, pages 101, 258, and 273." It appears that this source is the same as used in Footnote 10 - C. G. Chamberlayne, The Vestry Book of Saint Paul's Parish, Hanover County, Virginia, 1706-1786, Richmond: The Library Board, 1940.
I find this rather odd, since from what I have seen of this vestry book, it didn't include a parish register or vital records. However, I wasn't looking at the 1940 edition. Do any of you have access to this book? Could you check these pages for me? I would really like to know how the author determined that George Phillips had sons George, John, Richard, and James and their ages.
I appreciate any help.
