I am trying to trace back my line on my mother's side; I have traced it back to a Thomas Phillips born in Radnorshire in 1817 who married an Elizabeth Watkins, giving birth to Thomas.
This Thomas moved to London and became a tailor, according to the 1861 Census, running his own business.
Has anyone researched this line before - and if so, what have they found going back, if anything? Is there any info for the tailor business that Thomas operated. It does seem quite notable but it did not go down future lines.
I am posting in other parts of this forum for forward info so would welcome historical information here too
