Constantine Phipps junior

1740 - 1797


Son of Constantine Phipps senior (q.v.), from whom he inherited slave-property in St Thomas on St Kitts. In the ODNB entry for Nancy Katharine Sandars, 'prehistoric archaeologist and poet' it is said of her that she 'was born on 29 June 1914 at the Manor House, Little Tew, Oxfordshire, the second daughter and youngest of three children of Lt Col. Edward Carew Sandars (1869–1944), an officer in the Royal Artillery, and his wife, Gertrude Annie, née Phipps (1876–1934), of Clonmel, Co Tipperary, who came from a family who had been planters on St Kitts in the eighteenth century and was a descendant of the Revd James Ramsay, the anti-slavery campaigner.' Presumably she was also a descendant of the family of Constantine Phipps.

The 'Letter Book of Constantine Phipps, Late of St Kitts' containing 183 pages of letters and 16 pages of 'memorandum of provisions & stores to be carefully sent to my estate during this American war' was advertised for auction in Cornwall in January 2022. The letters span the years 1771-1779.
