Phillips Esq of the Temple proposed member 13.6.1788 by Amos Chaplin 2nded Richard Sharp
One possibility was John Phillips son of John Phillips of Droitwich matric Queens Coll Oxford 1776 age 17, adm Middle Temple 31.3 1780 son of John Phillips of Claines, Worcs, adm Inner Temple 7.4.1788, who was in Law List from 1787 as counsel of 3 Kings Bench Walk, Inner Temple and from 1792 to 1795 as counsel of Marshalsea and Palace court. He married as bach of St James Piccy 27.1.1795 Emma Sneyd widow of Ryegate Surrey .She had married Rev William Sneyd as Emma Vernon in 1791, his will PCC 1793 made John Phillips his executor and left a legacy to Phillips' brother-in-law John Lewis, two of Sneyd's sisters were wives of Richard Lovell Edgeworth DNB 1744-1817.  John Phillips will PCC 6.12.1797 dated 23.4.1797 of Droitwich gent who left the lease of Golden Acre & Cherry Orchard in Claines to his son John, seems to have been his father but not certain, he also left his son John his chest of tools, ivory, woods &c in his shop, which may have been a toyshop. The father had probably married Mary Brook at Bagley, Worcs on 11.9.1753. Certainly John Phillips the barrister had a sister Sarah (her will PCC 1794 of Droitwich spinster), a sister Elizabeth who married in 1780 John Lewis surgeon of Droitwich, (his will of Half Moon St Piccadilly, PCC 1823), and a brother Richard. John Phillips lived at Hanbury Hall and his wife Emma died there, her will PCC 17.4.1818. Glasgow Herald 1.9.1820 John Phillips of Hanbury Hall Esq married niece of the late John Weir of Broughton House (14.8.1820 at Droitwich to Mary Weir). John Phillips Esq of Edstone will PCC 19.3.1836 mentined his wife Mary, his daus Mary Elizabeth and Catherine Emma, his cousin John Phillips, his Lewis nephews and niece, and his relation Thomas Taylor Griffiths surgeon of Wrexham. His daughter Mary Elizabet married Darwin Galton on 24.9.1840 at Wootton Wawen, Warwicks. He was the older brother of Francis Galton (DNB 1822-1911). As I began this paragraph "I think", that was because there were others named Phillips with Temple addresses in 1788.  Another possibility was Robert Phillips of Essex Court, Middle Temple who was admitted Middle Temple in 1764 3rd son of Thomas Phillips of the Middle Temple and of Longworth, Herefordshire. He was MP for Hereford in 1784 (historyofparliamentonline 1754-1790) as a stopgap in the interest of the Earl of Surrey (Charles Howard DNB 1746-1815) who had himself been a member of the SCI from 1783. He became recorder of Hereford and died in 1822 (Berrow's Worcester Journal 14.2.1822). "Esq" usually implied a barrister rather than an attorney,.but there was also a John Phillips attorney of 3 Pump Court, Middle Temple in 1787, and perhaps the same person, a John Phillips attorney of 17 Mitre Court Buildings, Temple 1787-1788 listed as a conveyancer 1790-1792 and as counsel 1793-1795, though I couldn't find his admission to any of the Inns of Court
