Early Philips VA Land Grants

Virginia Land Office Patents and Grants Electronic Collection of the Library of Virginia

 

We are fortunate to have this collection of original land patents that are organized so that they can be searched and a summary can be viewed on the internet at the web site Library of Virginia On-Line Catalog.  Notice the spelling of Philips with one "L" in each of these land grants.  This is a strong indication that this family used this spelling at least back until 1725.

 

A snippet of the web page is shown below.  Select “Images & Indexes” and “Virginia Land Office Patents and Grants” and enter the search item, such as “Philips” or “Joseph Philips” without the quotation marks, and click on submit.  All the records will pop up in a list. Select an item off the list and you will see a summary of the information contained in the record.  At the top of the record is an internet link to the original record which you can view in a browser if you have a “tiff” viewer add-on installed.
