    Ancestor of Archie Aymslowe
    Philip has dark hair, hazel eyes and fair skin. He is right handed. He stands at an average five feet, six inches with a sturdy build. He dresses as is suited to his class.
    1860: Philip is born the first son of Archibald and Briar Aymslowe. He is sickly at the start of his life but soon proves resilient; going on to be quite a robust child.

    1863: Briar has a miscarriage. Philips too young to understand what has happened.

    1865: A still birth occurs and the baby is named William. Philip is very sad over the happening but still doesn't quite get what has actually occurred.

    1866: First signs of magic. Also the year that Philip starts taking a liking to 'helping' the cook and watching as he cooks.

    1868: A sister is born and she is named Rosemary.

    1871: Philip goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.

    1875: The news that he has been selected for Prefect is marred by the death of his much beloved sister.

    1877: The family are thankfully not affected by the chaos.

    1878: Philip graduates from Hogwarts and immediately begins working for his fathers restaurant. He starts from the kitchens as his father believes it will be good for character building or some shit like that. Philip does not mind as over the years, he has come to love cooking; most especially baking. It isn't long before he is dabbling with his own ideas and creations which are received well by their patrons.

    1883: Philips father dies and Philip inherits. For the moment, Philip squirrels away a majority of the funds and invests the rest.

    1884: Philips investments pay off and he is left with more money than he'd originally held. This on top of the restaurant he had been left with doing reasonably well means Philip and his mother are quite comfortable. But still, Philip is restless and begins to write up plans to open his own bakery and pastry shop.

    Given that they do not live in Hogsmeade, Philip and his mother are left untouched by the plague and fire.

    1885: After much planning, Philip sells the restaurant for a tidy sum and upon his mothers agreement, moves to Irvingly with his mother. There, he opens his long desired bakery and pastry shop which he dubs Sweet Delights.

    To supplement his income and ensure that he can more than support his mother and a wife, too, if he desired, Philip also continues with his routine of investing part of his funds.
