About the Philipp surname

The Philipp family held a landed manor in the former Kingdom of Saxony.

They had many businesses from time to time circa 1700's ranging from near Zschopau south to Frieberg.

In 1790, 3 Philipp men: Carl Gottlieb, Samuel Gottlieb and Christian Gottlieb purchased Schloesschen [later known as Schloesschen Porschendorf] for 12,800 Taler. This manor dealt in the businesses of sheep for wool; fish; and other agricultural activities of which I am not certain.

Samuel Gottlieb Philipp circa 1790 operated the Castle of Scharfenstein business for the Einsiedel family. I am only making an informed guess that the Einsiedel heirdom of Castle Scharfenstein was briefly interrupted for a time.
