Archie Phillips Winnipeg, MB Canada Jan 29, 2001
I'm looking for the descendents of John Philp who married Margaret Spence in 1839, Birsay, Orkney Islands.

They had six kids, and were living at a place called Newbigging, Birsay. The kids that I have traced are: Helen and she married Peter Johnston in 1863(I think). William born in 1842 and he moved to Canada in 1862 as an employee of the HBC, it was at this time he chagned his name to "Phillips". Wiliam married Charlotte Lambert in 1866 at Fort Pelly and they had eleven kids. The kids were Jack, Margaret she married Joe Kirkness, Nellie married Charlie Eden, Jemima married Albert Settee, Catherine married Willie Taylor, Archibald, Annie married Malcolm McRae, Joseph, Alex or Tom, Christine married Perk Pearson.

Isabel Kirkness Philp moved to Canada, I don't think she ever married. John Spence Philp born in 1846, status unknown, Other childern unknown.
I'm trying to find out what happened to John and Margaret and the rest of the family?

I have found out that Helen was living with her uncle and aunt in 1851. So something must have happened to her family.

I believe John Philp's parents were: William Philp born 1778 and Jean Folster and they were married in 1807

So any information will be most welcomed.
