William (Billy) Phillips (1821-1891) and Margaret, his wife (1830-1899). Margaret was the sister of William Lewis of Bontnewydd.They had five children. Billy Phillips was a Master Carpenter and property developer! A row of cottages built by him can still be seen near Brooklands House in Nelson. He and William Lewis of Bontnewydd, his brother in law, were also close friends and the families grew up together. Barbara Dickson is descended from Billy and Margaret. I am still in touch with Barbara and her husband, David.
