    • (1) 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. . . .

      (2) Purple, Edwin R., "Contributions to the History of the Ancient Families of New York: Varleth-Varlet-Varleet-Verlet-Verleth," New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol. 9 (1878), pp. 119-124:

      . . . FREDERICK PHILIPSE, only son of Philip and Maria (Sparks) Philipse, and grandson of Frederick and Margaret (Hardenbroeck) Philipse, of New York . . . was born at Spring Head, so-called, on the estate of his father, in Barbadoes, in 1695. Left an orphan in 1700, he was sent to New York the next year by desire of his grandfather, who immediately sold the Spring Head estate, so that his grandson might not afterwards be induced to settle in Barbadoes, an arrangement that gave great displeasure, to his mother's relatives. His grandfather died Nov. 6, 1702, leaving him a large estate, including the "Yonkers plantation," and by the death.of his uncle, Adolph Philipse, the whole manor of Philipsburg, in Westchester County, with the upper Highland patent of Philipstown, in Putnam County, became vested in him as the nearest male heir of his grandfather, Frederick. He died in New York, July 26, 1751, of consumption; arid was buried in the family vault in the Dutch Church, at Sleepy Hollow, near Tarrytown. The following notice of his death Is from the York Gazette, etc., for July 29, 1751: "New York, July 29, 1751: Last Friday Evening departed this Life, in the 56th year of his Age, the Honorable FREDERICK PHILIPSE, Esq., one of his Majesty's Justices of the Supreme Court of this Province, and a Representative in our General Assembly for the County of Westchester. He was a Gentleman conspicuous for an abundant Fortune; but it was not his Wealth that constituted his Merit; his Indulgence and Tenderness to his Tenants, his more than Parental Affection for his Children, and his increased Liberality to the Indigent, surpassed the Splendor of his Estate, and procured him a more unfeigned Regard than can be purchased with Opulence, or gained by Interest. There were perhaps few Men that ever equalled him in those obliging and benevolent Manners, which, at the same Time that they attracted the Love of his Inferiors, created him all the Respect and Veneration due to his Rank and Station. That he was a Lover of his Country, is gloriously attested by his being repeatedly elected into the Assembly for the last 27 Years of his Life. He had a Disposition extremely social, and was what few ever attain to be, a good Companion. But what I have said of his Character is far from being a finished Portrait; it is only a sketch of some few of his Excellent Qualities, many features I am sure, have escaped me; but I dare say, that those I have attempted, are not set off with false colours, but drawn faithfully from the Life."

      He left surviving him his wife Johanna, two sons, Frederick his heir, and Philip, to whom was devised (in equal portions with his sisters) the upper highland patent of Philipstown, and three daughters, Susannah, wife of Mr. Beverley Robinson, Mary, whom he calls in his will his second daughter, and Margaret, called his youngest. They had nine children baptized in the Dutch Church in New York, but their dau. Mary's baptism (who married Col. Roger Morris) does not appear here, if the published date of her birth, July 5, 1730, is correct.

      His wife was killed by a fall from her carriage, on the Highland estate, in 1765. Frederick and Johanna (Brockholst) Philipse, had issue:
