James Farrel Phipps: Son of Constantine Phipps of St. Kitts

James Farrel Phipps was born 24 July 1744 on St. Kitts in the Caribbean, in what is now St. Kitts and Nevis. He was later of Petersborough in Northants.

His parents were Constantine Phipps of St. Kitts and Constantine’s wife Mary Farrel. The last post asked for whom Con Phipps on St. Kitts was named, and this might be a possibility.

Pownoll William Phipps, in The Life of Colonel Pownoll Phipps (London: Richard Bentley, 1894, following p. 228), charts James Farrel Phipps as a son of Constantine whose will is dated 1769. Constantine’s father is charted as Capt. Phipps, born “say” about 1684. He is charted as a son of Captain James Phipps, baptized 1653, who married Susanna Clarke, daughter of Capt. Richard Clarke of St. Kitts.

Capt. James Phipps is, in turn, charted as a son of Francis Phipps of Reading, Berkshire, England, and his wife Anne. This would be the Francis and Anne (Sharpe) Phipps of the Berkshire visitations which we discussed in a very recent post.

One thought on “James Farrel Phipps: Son of Constantine Phipps of St. Kitts

  1. Hi – I have just come across your blog via Google. Constantine Phipps (1720-1769) was my 7th great grandfather. I am descended through his son Constantine (1746-1797). This younger Constantine was the one who mislaid his children in France in 1792. His daughter Elizabeth (1774-1836) was my 5th great grandmother.

    regards
    Anne
