Philip Call died September 1662

Philip Call was born about 1627 in Faversham, England.  He married Mary, daughter of Richard Smith, in Ipswich, MA.  He died about 1662 in Ipwich.  His house there survives, and is part of the Ipswich Walking Tour.

Number 24. Philip Call House. 26 High Street. The Philip Call House, built in 1659, was probably originally a one-over-one, first period house with a front door on the right hand side. Later additions are to the rear and east side. It now has many first and second period features, chamfered frame, a heavy summer beam, large fireplaces, a handsome wall of raised field paneling upstairs. Nineteenth century owners constructed a boxwood garden in the rear, sunny side of the house. One of his daughters married into the Bolles family and later generations of the family owned the house into the 1700’s. Later, the house was bought by Caldwells, whose family home was just down the street.

      I see that I had accidentally recorded his birth year as his death year. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
