Tottenham Quakers

Thomas Phillips (1730-1797)

Thomas Phillips came to Tottenham in about 1746. He first lived in a house lying on the east side of Tottenham Green. When his father died he moved with the rest of his family onto Broadwater Farm. He farmed all the land up to the New River and over to where Seven Sisters Road now runs.

Thomas died aged 66. He was buried at Whitechapel.
