Introduction

This page is devoted to the HILL ancestors of my mother - the origins of the name, who they were and where and when they lived.

The genealogical data in these pages is accurate to the best of my current (at the time of writing) knowledge. This means it is of very variable reliability, since sources at one extreme are 100% certain (e.g. I know who I married, where and when, and the identity of my parents) to the mere rumour level, such as LDS data extracted from the IGI and Ancestral File, and reminiscences of elderly relatives, some now deceased. Anyone wishing to make any use whatever of this information is therefore strongly advised to contact me for source details.

Origins of the name

The surname Hill very commonly originated from someone who lived on or by a hill. Other, less common origins are from the English mediæval given name Hill, a short form of Hilary, a diminutive or short form of German names beginning with Hild, such as Hildebrand, or the Anglicised form of various similar sounding Jewish (Ashkenazic) names.

Sarah Hill

My maternal grandfather's paternal grandmother was Sarah Hill. She was born in Salisbury between 15th September 1823 and 30th March 1824. On 15th September 1844 she married William John Morgan at the Independent Chapel, Endless Street, Salisbury; the certificate shows she was under 21 years old at the time, and living in Winchester Street, St. Edmund, Salisbury.

Their son's birth certificate shows that in June 1845 they were living in nearby Church Street. The 1851 census for Salisbury shows them living with just the one son, also named William John Morgan and a female servant.

==================================================

William Hill

Sarah's father was William Hill. His daughter's marriage certificate in 1844 describes him as a whip-maker.
