[There is a problem with the d.o.b. of John Philip. His gravestone gives his date of birth as 5 Mar 1834. But William and Alison were married in 1840. So, either John's d.o.b. is wrong, or William was married to someone else before Alison.]
With his uncle, he drowned in a boating accident on the Gamtoos River.
Some sources report that the child drowned with William Enowy Philip was his niece, others maintain that it was his grandson. According to Heese & Lombard, it was his son John Fairbairn Philip. In fact it was his nephew, John Philip Fairbairn.
