Re: John Phipps & family
My gg grandfather Mathew Wise Phipps was born in England where he lived with the exception of the years when his last 3 children were born in Switzerland in 1866, 1868 and 1873. I do not know why they lived in Switzerland and my research has shown the family to be quite elusive in the British census.I found this post interesting as Mathew's father's name was John Phipps. As well, Mathew's first son's middle name was Hostache so perhaps there is a connection to the Phipps family we are both looking for. I am looking foward to hearing from you.
