Edward Phillips (fl.1749)

Edward Phillips was the Vicar of the Welsh parish of Measmynis, close to the Gwynne family home of Garth. He was initially well disposed toward the Wesleys and accompanied Charles on several journeys. He soon fell out with Charles Wesley on account of his own attraction for Sarah Gwynne junior, who subsequently married Wesley.
