Misc. Notes
According to Threlfall’s GMC50,885 William Phippen “of Wedmore, Somersetshire, lived in that part of the parish known as Burrow. There are several Phippen families living in various parts of this rather extended parish during the early part of the 17th century. William was a favorite name among them and it is impossible to sort them out, so incomplete are the records. This particular William Phippen mentioned in his will a brother, Joseph, living in Ireland. This undoubtedly was the Joseph Phippen who married Elynor Marten on 2 August 1603 at Wedmore, and had baptized there four children: Christopher, baptized 17 August 1603[;] Isabella, baptized 5 December 1604[;] Joseph, baptized 12 October 1606[;] George, baptized 16 March, buried 24th, 1610/11[.]

“Joseph, of whom there is no further record in Wedmore, was probably several years older than William.

“John Phippen, who married Dorothy Thorne on 10 June 1616, may have been another brother.

“William’s wife, Judith, was buried 10 December 1637. William Phippen was buried 5 October 1647 at Wedmore, as was his wife.

“William Phippen was, according to his will, a baker. His only known children are those named in the will, an abstract of which follows.”
