About Frederick Philipse, II, 2nd Lord of Philipsburg Manor

From Morris, F.O., "Philipse of Philipsburgh," The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, vol. 10 (1856), p. 26: "FREDERICK PHILIPSE, second lord of Philipsbourg, founder of St. John's church, Yonkers, born in 1698, at Barbadoes, was sent, in 1701, to New York, by desire of his grandfather, who immediately sold the estate, called Spring Head, in Barbadoes, for £10,000, that the property might not afterwards be an inducement to his grandson to settle in that island, an arrangement which so displeased his mother's relations, that Mr. Farmer, dying soon after his neice [sic], Maria, left all his large fortune to Mrs. Sparkes, and only a legacy of £10,000 to his grandnephew, Frederick Philipse, who died of consumption A.D. 1751, aged 52, and left Philipsbourg and most of his houses in New York (bequeathed to him by his grandfather) to his son Frederick, with reversion to his son Philip, if Frederick should not marry; but if either of' them married and had only daughters, then the properties were to go to his own daughters, Susanna, (afterwards Mrs. Col. Robinson) and Mary, (afterwards Mrs. Col. Morris). He married, in 1726, Johanna, youngest daughter of Anthony Brockholes, Esq., . . . fourth Governor of New York after its cession to Great Britain, by Susanna Maria, his wife, daughter of Paulus Aemilius Schrect, of the Pompton Estate, in New Jersey, who had emigrated from West Friesland, and had issue by her, who was killed in 1765 by a fall from her carriage, no surgical assistance being at hand. . . ."
