Origins of surname

This is a simple surname, Phillips meaning the son of Philip

Early records

The name, in its various forms, appears in Jersey church records as early as 1601, but in many spelling the name can be found back as far as the beginning of the 13th century in other documents. Because of the many variations in spelling it can be very difficult to trace family trees, and numerous online trees move from one spelling to another with no real justification for including people in the same descendancy.
