      Found land transactions for a Thomas Phillips at Coventry,RI from about 1785.He received land from a James Phillips.Have you already dismissed this Thomas?There were several transactions listed for a Thomas,many in Book 6,such as the one above.There were plenty of Johnsons in Coventry.The marriage is not in Arnold's VR,at least not in Coventry.

              Thought there might be a connection.....Maybe also to H.P.Lovecraft whose mother was a Phillips from Coventry?RI Science fiction writer.His line goes back through Asaph Phillips of Foster RI son of a James Phillips.Not sure if there were two James in the same area and time frame,have not researched......RI Mike

              Found land transactions for a Thomas Phillips at Coventry,RI from about 1785.He received land from a James Phillips.Have you already dismissed this Thomas?There were several transactions listed for a Thomas,many in Book 6,such as the one above.There were plenty of Johnsons in Coventry.The marriage is not in Arnold's VR,at least not in Coventry.

                  I found this information about Michael and his wife, confirming a portion of the Thayer/Phillips line. Our Phillips family line originates in what is now known

                    I found this information about Michael and his wife, confirming a portion of the Thayer/Phillips line.



                    Our Phillips family line originates in what is now known as Rhode
                    Island. Michael Phillips was born about 1625. Proof is lacking
                    of his origin. No written documentation is found about his
                    parents. I present here possibilities in hopes that further
                    research will either prove or disprove the connections. Michael
                    Phillips who some feel was born possibly in Wales and definitely
                    disappeared and probably died in Newport, Rhode Island. He came
                    to Rhode Island and was married to Barbara, who was about his
                    same age, around 1659. It is known that she was unable to write
                    her name in the English manner. They resided in Newport,
                    Providence County, Rhode Island. Michael appears on the
                    Freeman's List of Newport in 1668. He disappears from history
                    after this. No one yet has been able to find the name of the ship
                    he and his wife Barbara sailed over on or confirm where and when
                    Michael was born. As all families, this one is rich in American
                    history and continues to grow with new cousins. Other surnames
                    related are White, Howe, Fuller, Prouty, Richmond, McGlocklin,
                    Simoneau, Charnock, Taylor, Lupien and Ethier. A Michael
                    Phillips is found near what is now Westmoreland County, Virginia
                    after 1657. There may have been sporadic appearances of the
                    Virginia Michael Phillips well into the 1690's. Children of
                    Michael and Barbara (1661-1668) included:
                    James b.1662 d.12/12/1746 m1. Mary Mowry, dau. of John & Mary
                    Mowry, granddau. of Roger Mowry
                    Eight children:
                    Michael b.1690 Providence RI d.Smithfield RI m.Freelove
                    Wilkinson (practice of the time to name
                    firstborn son for paternal grandfather)
                    John probably second son
                    Joshua, Samuel, Mary, Elizabeth
                    Phebe, Jeremiah
                    m2. 11/25/1728 Elizabeth Foster
                    John (married Rebecca) b.1666, d.1743
                    Richard b. 10/20/1667 m. Sarah Mowry b.1660 (his step-niece),
                    dau. of Nathaniel Mowry and his step sister Joanna Inman
                    (dau. of Edward Inman Sr. and Elizabeth Hopkins), granddau.
                    of Roger Mowry:
                    Children of Richard and Sarah:
                    John
                    William
                    Richard
                    Mercy b.1684 m1.? <1726 Edward Smith
                    m2.? 11/26/1741 William Hall
                    Ruth
                    William m. Christiana Barker, dau. of James Barker & Barbara
                    Dungan
                    Alice m. 1685 Joshua Clarke
                    Joseph b.1663

                    A Michael Phillips had another wife Anne Wallis m.10/01/1655 in
                    Ardeley, Hertford, England. They would have most likely resided
                    in Virginia. This wife was willed a bequest by Abraham Inman of
                    Westmoreland County, Virginia on April 18, 1662. Our Michael's
                    children are clearly with wife Barbara, from the gifts of land,
                    etc., given by Barbara's second husband to the Phillips children.

                    Barbara remarried an Edward Inman sometime prior to August 13,
                    1676. On that date, a Francis Brinley appealled in a letter to
                    John Whipple that Michael Phillips during his life was indebted
                    to him and that Edward Inman having married Barbara (Phillips'
                    relict) should pay the oe2.16.0, but had not done so. Michael
                    may have participated in King Philip's War against the English
                    colonists. Perhaps he was a casuality in the heavy losses during
                    the fighting (June 24, 1675 to August 28, 1676). A number of the
                    Narragansett people merged with other tribes; the rest
                    intermarried with European settlers.

                    My elation was short lived. I had traced the Thomas Phillips line all the way back to Picton Castle, Wales. Then I thought about confirming it with the pedigree I have on Ancestry, and found a disjoint. Is Thayer a definitive source... or Ancestry? I have the following:

                    Thought there might be a connection.....Maybe also to H.P.Lovecraft whose mother was a Phillips from Coventry?RI Science fiction writer.His line goes back through Asaph Phillips of Foster RI son of a James Phillips.Not sure if there were two James in the same area and time frame,have not researched......RI Mike

                    Found land transactions for a Thomas Phillips at Coventry,RI from about 1785.He received land from a James Phillips.Have you already dismissed this Thomas?There were several transactions listed for a Thomas,many in Book 6,such as the one above.There were plenty of Johnsons in Coventry.The marriage is not in Arnold's VR,at least not in Coventry.
