Commoners (vol I, 'Wiggett-Chute of The Vyne', p633) identifies Philip's wives as Margaret (dau of Alexander Culpeper of Bedgeberry) then Joane (dau of Thomas Dussing of Winchelsea). Visitation (Kent, 1530-1, 'Chowte') identifies his marriages and children as follows (which is supported by the Archaeologia Cantiana article).

1. Elizabeth Chute

  m1. (27.09.1608) Lydia Gibbon (bpt 28.08.1586, bur 17.11.1631, dau/coheir of Thomas Gibbon of Bethersden)
  i. George Chute (bpt 27.01.1611, bur 07.02.1651)
The following is largely supported by CountyGen (Kent, Berry, p491) except for the rather significant points that Berry shows George (father of the Bart) & Eleanora (m. William Gerard) as children of Edward rather that his siblings.

  a. Edward Chute (bpt 02.02.1634, d before 09.02.1658-9)
  Berry identifies Edward's wife as Elizabeth, dau of Sir Basil Dixwell of Brome, Bart, by Dorothey, dau of Sir Thomas Peyton of Knowlton, Bart. However, the dates appear not to support that. TCB (vol vol 4, 'Oxenden of Deane', p99) identifies her as "Elizabeth, da. of (-) Dixwell" whilst the Archaeologica Cantiana article identifies her as ...
