Joseph Phillips married Ann Clarke at St Mary Magdalene churchNorth Ockendon on 12 Jan 1801, the first ancestors I've found in this branch.

Joseph and Ann had at least five sons:
  1. James Phillips bap. 12 Feb 1804 (buried 21 Nov 1804) both at St. NicholasSouth Ockendon
  2. Thomas Phillips bap. 25 May 1806 at St. NicholasSouth Ockendon
  3. James Phillips bap. 17 Jul 1808 at St. NicholasSouth Ockendon (buried 2 Oct 1814 at St Michael, Aveley)
  4. William Phillips born 25 Dec 1810, bap. 20 Jan 1811 at St Michael's, Aveley. (There is a burial of a William Phillips, aged 31, on 25 Apr 1841 in Rainham that may relate.)
  5. Isaac Phillips bap. 26 Dec 1813 at St Giles & All SaintsOrsett
It's also possible that there was a sixth child, as there's a burial of a Joseph Phillips, aged 5, in Aveley, on 3 Dec 1815 (so also born 1810). However, I haven't been able to find a baptism to confirm he belonged to this family.

There is a death of a Joseph Phillips in 1844, in Orsett, aged 67. 

Haven't been able to find out for certain when Ann died, but there was a burial of an Ann Phillips (37) in Grays Thurrock on 18 Apr 1819. Then in 1841, there is a Joseph Phillips of the right age (65) with a wife Susan (50), Eliza Phillips (20) and Emma Phillips (1) in West Thurrock, Orsett, so perhaps he remarried.
