Administrative/Biographical history:

Daniel Phillips lived at East Bedfont for many years before his death in 1892. Kelly's Directory of Middlesex lists him as a resident in 1855. He bequeathed his residuary estate to his trustees, one of whom was his niece Mary Elizabeth Phillips. Miss Phillips was a member of a Quaker family who acquired property in Tottenham in the early nineteenth century. With her sister, Mrs. Alexander Fox, Miss Phillips founded in 1867 the North-Eastern Hospital for Children, Hackney Road, Bethnal Green, later known as The Queen's Hospital for Children. After a long illness Miss Phillips died on 20 January 1922. Her will contained many bequests to charities, and her real estate became the property of her nephew, John Phillips Fox.
