Information from Dalous Phillips



                                                                                        Dalous Phillips Document


The Dalous Phillips Document shows that Mose Phillips is a decendant of George Phillips and that there is one generation missing.  It says that George Phillips came over 6 years before the Mayflower.  If this is accurate, then George Phillips would have arrived between 1614 and 1624 because the Mayflower made voyages between 1620 and 1630.  It seems that there are several generations between Mose and George.  Speaking with other descendants of Mose, I received information suggesting that George Phillips sailed from England on the Arbella April 8 to June 12, 1630.  I haven't been able to make a connection between George Phillips and Mose.  The next step may be to contact the John Winthrop Society who has the log journal of John Winthrop's voyage to the New World on the Arbella.  George Phillips is mentioned in this journal and the Wintrhop society may have records of those settlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony including George Phillips and his descendants.
