Origin of the Name Phillips

The Phillips family history was found in the archives. Phillips is a baptismal name meaning 'the son of Phillip' a name of great antiquity. This personal name means 'fond of horses' and has a number of variants including Philip, Philipp, Philips, Phillipp, Phillipps, Phillipson and Phipps. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Simon Philippi, County Kent, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and an Eliis Philip, County Huntingdonshire, who was also recorded in this ancient document in the thirteenth century. A Hugh Fisher and Elizabeth Philipson were granted a marriage license, in London, in the year 1617. A son of Philip, the Chamberlain, had a grant of Lundin, in Fife, Scotland , in the year 1166. In Ireland this name is often used as a form of Philbin but is also found as MacPhillips in Counties Cavan and Monaghan, where it is a branch of the Scottish clan MacDonnell.
The Phillips coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Phillips descendants.
