Notes for Richard C PHILLIPS:

I'm not sure why it would have been but I belive Richard can be seen in 1891, living at 3, Daute Road, Newington, London:
John Stone Widower M 65 Carpenter London
Richard Phillips Single M 12 Scholar Newington
Matilda Hudson Boarder Married F 36 Lee Kent

This is the same address (albeit transcribed as "Daute" instead of "Dante") as the one given in 1881 when Richard was living with his parents.
