Philip Livingston "Gentleman Phil"

3rd Nov 1740 - 1810


  1. Eldest son of Peter Van Brugh Livingston (c. 1710-1793) and his first wife Mary nee Alexander. From a wealthy New York family with extensive political connections, his uncle was Philip Livingston (1716-1778), one of the signers of the American Declaration of Independence. Usually known as "Gentleman Phil". Married Cornelia, daughter of David Van Horne and Anne French, in New York in 1790. Died May 1810.

  2. Nephew of Henry Livingston of Aleppo estate in St Mary, Jamaica, and (with three of his first cousins) co-heir of Aleppo estate and co-executor of Henry Livingston's will. Aleppo was listed to the heirs of Henry Livingston from 1772 to 1823. It's not clear for how long Philip Livingston retained an interest in the estate.

Note: not to be confused with his first cousin also called Philip Livingston, son of John Livingston (c. 1714-1788).
