This is where my Philips, with one "L", family lived prior to about 1760 when Joseph Philips, with one "L", moved to
Edgecomb County NC north west of Tarboro just above the Tarboro River.
It's obvious from this map that there were a number of Philips, with one "L" land grants in Southampton County below
the Blackwater River/Swamp and below the Seacock Swamp.
By clicking on an icon that locates a land grant you will open a window that shows a summary of the information in the
land grant and a link that you can copy and paste into your web browser and view the original hand written land grant to see
the spelling of the names on the land grant.
To read the hand written land grants you will need to have a Tiff viewer add-on installed on your browser. You
can google "Tiff viewer add-on" and locate a free add-on to install.
