Administrative/Biographical history:

Phillips and Son, solicitors and commissioners of oaths, are listed in the 1865-1875 Post Office London law directories as James Phillips and Henry Druit Phillips, operating as Phillips and Son, with offices at 11 Abchurch Lane. They also acted as vestry clerks for City of London churches Saint Mary Woolnoth and Saint Mary Woolchurch Haw. It is unclear when 'Neal' joined the partnership.

The latter documents in this collection (Q/PSN/007 onwards) came from a solicitor's office at 14 Essex Street, Strand. This office was occupied c.1800 by Robert Blake, after 1856 by Edward and Henry Tylee, and before 1873 by E. and H. Tylee, Wickham and Moberly.
