We’re in the early stages of researching this Philip Williams.
We know he came from ‘St Brides’ but we don’t yet know which St Brides; there are more than one. But one is just a few miles from the site of the find of The Druidstone Ring.
We’ve come across him in The National Archives, in documents relating to ‘The Queen v. Philip Williams’. It seems the prosecution was: ‘Whether Philip Williams of the parish of St Brides has kept and maintained one able and sufficient gelding for a light horseman, with sufficient armour and weapons for the same, during the time his wife has worn a silk gown’.
