Phyllis (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), died before 19 July 1608, when she was buried at Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England.1

Phyllis married Rev. William Thompson, whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), say 1594.1

John White, Vicar of Churton, Wiltshire, left a will [dated 1 Feb 1669/10; proved 6 Feb 1671/2] making mention of nephew and niece, John Broadhurst and Phyllis "his nowe wife," and their sons John and Edward as trinepotes [great-nephews] to be overseers, great-nephews Charles and Samuel Broadhurst, both under 21, and cousin Phillis Broadhurst," daughter of John Broadhurst. It appears that Phyllis, wife of William Thompson, may be a sister or half sister of this John White.2
