Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Phillips (c. 1709 - 28 December 1775) was a prominent English master carpenter, builder, and architect who was active in London. He inherited the considerable practice of his uncle, Thomas Phillips (c. 1689-1736), who was active as a speculative builder on the Harley estate, held the contract for carpentry and joiner's work at James Gibbs' St Martin-in-the-Fields and St Peter's, Vere Street, and built the wooden bridge across the Thames between Fulham and Putney (1729-30). In partnership with George Shakespear, John Phillips developed Charles Street, Mayfair (1750) and other blocks of land in London's West End. Phillips was the "undertaker" for the whole north-west corner of the Grosvenor estate. Phillips built a grand house for Lord Bateman (1759-60) at the north end of Park Lane, and next to it Camelford House (1773-74) for Thomas Pitt, 1st Baron Camelford. A subcontractor for carving documented in 1773 was John Linnell, a prominent cabinetmaker.show more
