The name Guelph was a corruption of Welf; Ghibelline was a corruption of Waiblingen, an estate belonging to the Hohenstaufen emperors.In Italy the Guelph dynasty was represented by the Este family.The Guelphs came to represent the papal faction in the longtime struggle with the imperial (Ghibelline) party representing the Holy Roman emperors.See the Guelphs and Ghibellines for more information.A Porlock correspondent says: "The Phelps family were originally from Italy, then called 'Welfs,' thence to Germany, there called 'Guelphs' thence to Scotland, called Phelps."
