Anonymous, Obituary in Gentleman's Magazine 94 (June 1824) 645.



May 28. In Barnard's Inn, in his 76th year, Philip Neve, esq. a Barrister at Law, Commissioner of Bankrupts, and an upright and independent Magistrate for the County of Middlesex, much lamented by his friends. Mr. Neve was a colleague with the late Sir Nathaniel Conant in Marlborough-st. at the first establishment of the Police offices; and was a polite gentleman and a good scholar. He was lately possessed of a most select and highly-preserved Collection of Roman large brass coins, containing about 500 of the rarest and most beautiful specimens.
