Philip Ludwell, "the third of that name, of "Green Spring," James City county and son of Hon. Philip Ludwell of the same place, was born about the 29th of Dec., 1716. He was a member of the house of burgesses for Jamestowmn in 1748 and at that session was appointed one of the committee to make a general revision of the laws. He was a member of the house again in 1749 and probably inotheryears. The exact date of his appointment to the council does not appear, but the earliest mention of him as present was on March 26, 1752. From this time until 1761, he seems to have been a regular attendant. Soon after he probably went to England and spent the remaining years of his life there, though still retaining his position as councillor for the "Gazette" in speaking of his death calls him "one of his majesty's council in Virginia." He died on March 25, 1767, and was buried at Bow Church near London. W'ith him became extinct, in the male line, the family of Lud well, which for more than a hundred years had been possessed of large estate and great political influence in the colony, and whose members had so frequently defended‘ the rights of the people and the legislature against the encroachments of the governors. For their own services and as ancestors of so many Virginians of fame, the Ludwells, though ex tinct, are held in honored memory." - Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography, Vol. I, Lyon Gardiner Tyler, 1915.
