If you are related to Edward Phillips (1790-1845) marrried to Mary Baily I have the story of how he was born Alexander Pride in Bo'ness Scotland, pressed into service with the British Navy, served in the Indian Sea and off the American Coast during the War of 1812, jumped ship in Halifax, changed his name to Edward Phillips, married the minister's daughter and they had 10 children.

I am looking for relatives of the children - Margaret Jane 1815 m Robert Arnold 12 children, John Pride Phillips 1817 m Polly Sharrard 6 children, Mary Charlotte 1819 m George Quantz 7 children, Benjamin 1820 m Amanda Lynde 7 children, Frances 1822 m Sylvester Lynde 8 children, Ann 1824 m Wideman 3 children, James 1826 m Mercy Abigail 7 children, William Charles 1828, Robert Seth 1830 m Alice Magill 3 children, and Susannah 1832-33.

Edward and Mary along with most of the children moved to Ontario and I have family history details for most.

I am also trying to get full details of any Phillips families with the middle name of Pride. There were Phillips and Pride families in the Gagetown, Waterborough areas of New Brunswick before Edward (Alexander) arrived. Any help would be appreciated.
