The Phillip sailed from Gravesend to Virginia June 1635 under Master Richard Morgan "20 June 1635"

Theis under-written names are to be transported to Virginea embarqued in the Phillip Richard Morgan Mr the Men have been examined by the Minister of the towne of Gravesend of their conformities to the orders & discipline of the Church of England: And tooke the oath of Alleg, die et Ao prd."  

Companion articles list passengers on two other ships that took settlers from England to Virginia. They are the 150 settlers on the Transport of London and the 88 passengers on the ship America.

Since this ship full of settlers did not have entire family groups on board it is probable that these passengers were a mix of indentured servants, poor people and people convicted of minor crimes.

The absence of punctuation in the ship log’s account makes it difficult to know if this ship is named the Phillip, which is implied by using the word "imbarqued," or whether the ship’s master was Phillip Richard Morgan. It reads “imbarqued in the Phillip Richard Morgan Mr.” (master).
