Families covered: Philipse of Philipsbourg Manor (New York)

Commoners reports that "The ancient Dutch family of Philipse is presumed to have originally been of Bohemian extraction, and to have fled thence, on the persecutions that arose in the times of John Huss, and Jerome, of Prague." That is supported by the Wikipedia articles (which appear to have been researched well) but, if Wikipedia is to be given precedence, Commoners appears to have mixed up some of the early generations.
