This wiki was created in 2008 to share our knowledge of the Phillips Family and to help provide a space to share further ideas and knowledge about the family. You can add your comments to any individual, article or tree - or you can modify an individual's profile if you have any additional information.

Is the following any relation to OUR PHILLIPS of Dartford, Kent. Marine Keith John PHILLIPS PO 39185R. Born 01 October 1962 in Dartford, Kent, England. Died 11 June 1982 in Falklands War. Buried in San Carlos Cemetery, Falklands Islands. NOTE on the night of 11 June 1982 a number of Royal Marines ( including Keith) were returning after an engagement when they were mistaken as the enemy. A number were killed by Friendly Fire. A very sad story!
Can anyone please help?

Hi Bob. Just a reply to the above from me. I haven't stumbled on any current families other than the great people who have put together this site or posted their trees on GR. So no releavnt Keith in my tree as yet.
Before the migration of people with Asian surnames over the last 20 odd years, Phillips was the 15th most common surname in either the UK or England and Wales so although Keith lived in Dartford, I wouldn't actually expect him to be a distant cousin.

Having found all you 3rd to 5th cousins, I am still disappointed by only fiinding one of my 2nd cousins. (Christine Garvin who I at last met in 2010) it seems that none of my grandfather Phillips siblings have descendants interested enoughin family history to belong to either of the common websites in the Uk. Having said that, I don't have a PAID subscription ot ANcestry so who knows who is around there? If anyone who reads this wiki, does have a paid sub to that site, I would be grateful for any leads.

Hi Jan. On Ancestry there is a tree which shows descent from Charles & Mary Ann through Alfred George Edward Phillips born 1902 (this would fit the baptism shown on Ancestry for 1 January 1903) - is this any use?

Hello Linda, are you the granddaughter of Alfred Edward Phillips? If so then our grandparents and Jan Phillips grandfather were siblings! Jan uploaded some snapshots that belonged to my grandmother Ada and there were a couple of Alf with his wife Flo.
