Phillis

Phillis (originally Phillais?)

The Phillis family were silk weavers based in Draycott near Shepton Mallett, Somerset. Earliest record, death of Richard Phillis (d. 1675).

The family remained in the area until the early 19th century when they dispersed and many took up new occupations.

This information was shared with the Huguenot Museum by one of our visitors.
