PREFACE 

This work owes its existence to the fact that the gradually failing eye- 
sight of the compiler resulted in total blindness before 1894. Compelled 
to relinquish his business and unable to end an active life in idleness, he 
commenced it and for more than ten years gave his time and money to this 
compilation of the genealogy of his name. 

The work he undertook would have been more than usually difficult for 
a skilled genealogist. The name Hill is among the most common of Eng- 
lish surnames. Relatively the name Hills is so uncommon, that those born 
to it in our own time are perhaps more often spoken of or addressed by 
other than theii- relatives and intimate friends, as if their name ended with 
double "1, " instead of the distinctive " s " that forms a part of it. 

The distinction between these names in the olden times and to a com- 
paratively recent date, was but little observed by the scribes who drew the 
wills, deeds and other documents destined to go upon public record. Cases 
have been noted where in the same instrument the name in one part was 
written Hill, in another Hills. An instance of this want of exactness can 
be found in appendix C at the end of this ^ork. The signatures to such 
documents as required them, determined the surname, except where 
the signer, following the scribe, or by legal authority, or as a matter 
of choice dropped the final " s " Much labor has been given to the resto- 
ration to their family line, of those who were descendants of the emigrants 
whose names are borne upon the title page. The proof that satisfied both 
the compiler and the editor in the three most important cases, where those 
now living and known as Hill have been determined to be descendants of 
either the emigrants of 1632 or 1638 can be found in appendixes C, D, 
and E. Blessed with a tenacious memory, the compiler was able to so 
arrange the results of his investigations that not in a single instance did the 
editor find confusion in his lines. 

But of necessity his work was by dictation and his correspondence was 
handled by secretaries who recorded his conclusions. It was evident to 
the editor, both by his statement and the finding of letters and reports of 
trifling value, that it was the compiler's intention to pi-eserve every paper 
relating to his work that came into his possession ; but it was equally evi- 
dent that some of his assistants considered their duty done, when the in- 
formation of an original paper was transferred to his printed blanks. The 
sheets from which the printers' copy was written have been compared by

the editor with original returns when they could be found and verified 
where verification was possible with published works. In a comparatively 
few cases the record went to press with no other authority than a secre- 
tary's copy of written or printed matter not accessible to the editor.

INTRODUCTION 

ORIGIN OF THE NAME COMMON ANCESTOR COAT ARMOR BRANCHES. 

All authorities agree that surnames were not in use before about the year 
1000. Camden, probably the earliest writer on this subject, whose " Re- 
mains concerning Britaine " was published in 1623, states that they "be- 
gan to be taken up in France about the year 1000 and in England about 
the time of the Conquest [1066] or a very little before; under King Ed- 
ward the Confessor " whose reign began in 1042. " But " he adds " in 
England certain it is, that as the better sort euen from the conquest by 
little and little took surnames, so they were not settled among the common 
people fully vntil about the time of King Edward the second," the first 
Prince of Wales, who became King of England in 1307. It must be con- 
sidered as well settled that among the ancestors of the English race sur- 
names that became family names came gradually into use. 

ORIGIN OF THE NAME. 

As hamlets and towns began to concentrate the population of the island, 
the residents of a village where there were several persons of the same 
name were compelled, when speaking of them, to use more than the single 
word which answered for their designation in the families to which they 
belonged. They spoke of John the Scott when referring to the immigrant 
from north of the Tweed ; John the smith or John the carter when they 
desired to designate either the worker in iron or the teamster. As it was 
a natural and easily understood description of a person to refer to him by 
the locality of his dwelling, surnames derived from location are common, 
and in a fairly populous neighborhood, Richard who lived by the lake, 
Henry of the wood, Rufus of the lea, William of the King's lea, and 
Thomas of the hill came in time to be known by their given names, fol- 
lowed only by the principal word of the designating addition ; and John 
Scott, Richard Blake, William Kingslee, Thomas Hill and numerous other 
English surnames became the accepted designation of the families de- 
scended from those to whose given names such additions were originally 
applied. This easily comprehended explanation of the genesis of local 
names may be accepted as to the origin of the distinctive appellation of 
the many famihes of English descent with the suiname Hill, but it does 
not satisfactorily account for the name in the plural — Hills. In a broken 
country where the elevations cluster in the form of mountains, it is both 
natural and fitting to speak of " the hills " in some such form as used when 

xi 



Xll INTRODUCTION. 

speaking of " the white hills " of New England. But old P>ngland is of 
gently undulating surface. An inhabitant might pro{)erly in the early 
days, from his residence on some slight eminence in any part of England, 
have been designated as William of the Hill, but nowhere in the island where 
our language (or those tongues from which it was derived) was spoken, 
could he with propriety have been called WiUiam of the Hills. Edward 
Hasted, one of the historians of Kent, whose large and valuable work was 
published in 1778, gives an origin of tlie name which accounts for its being 
localized in the Middle Ages, and furnishes a reason for the fact that it is 
still common in that county and those of its immediate vicinity, when it is 
rarely found in other parts of England. " About a mile southeastward 
from Darant church is the hamlet of Helles Saint Margaret, commonly 
called Saint Margaret Hills. . . . This manor afterwards came into the 
possession of a family called Hells, who had much land at Dartford and at 
Ash, near Sandwich, and from them this place acquired the additional 
name of Hells, or more vulgarly Hilles. One of these Thomas de Helles 
had a charter of free warren granted to him and his heirs for his lands here 
and at Dartford, in the seventeenth year of King Edward the First. One 
of his descendants, Richard Hills, for so the name was then spelt, about 
the beginning of King Henry the Seventh's reign, was possessed of this 
manor of Saint Margaret Hilles. He left one sole daughter and heir, Anne, 
who carried it in marriage to Henry Melbard, and he left issue two daughters 
and co-heirs, Alice and Joane, who divided it between them." In " The 
General History of Kent " a preface to his main work. Hasted states that 
" Gilbert de Hells, of Hells Court, in Ash, and of Saint Margaret Hells in 
Darant, was sheriff in the thirtieth year of Edward third .... who began 
his reign in 1326. He was a son of Bertram de Hells, Lieutenant of Dover 
Castle, under Reginald de Cobham." On this statement of Hasted and on 
those found in other parts of his work, it is evident, that while Bertram and 
Gilbert de Hells carried the name in that form, that another of the family, 
Henry de Helles, who was summoned to Parliament as one of the Knights 
of Kent, in the fourth and sixth years of the reign of King Edward the 
Third, retained it as it was written in the Charter. Here then we find the 
evidence that in about two hundred years, in the same family, while its mem- 
bers were of the same parish and the same manor, the family name changed 
at least twice ; that the name written Helles in King Edward's Charter in 
1289, became Hells about 1300; was so continued by the second of the 
family that we know to have carried the abbreviated surname in 1336 ; and 
settled into the form in which it is now used, as early as 1190 ; when the 
last male heir of the race, who was possessed of the manor that had been 
the home, and had remained in the name of the family for tn^o hundred 
years, lived at "Saint Margaret Hills" with the "one sole daughter" 
through whom the estate passed into another name. The reasonable be- 
lief that Hasted has localized the family whose descendants have been 
known as Hills or Hillis has been strengthened by the researches in Eng- 



INTRODUCTION. Xlll 

land of the agent of the Hills Family Genealogical and Historical Associa- 
tion, and by investigations of members of that organization. In efforts to 
trace the pedigrees of the EngUsh emigrants to New England, William' 
Hills of 1632, Joseph Hills of 1638 and the sons of John of Ashford in Kent, 
five of whom came to New England, the earliest in 1794, the latest in 1805, 
Mr. Lothrop Withington, in a search that began in October 1896 and was 
practically continuous among the records and parish registers of England 
for about six months, and which as opportunity afforded has been ex- 
tended to the date of this publication, has in several reports of his prog- 
ress noted connections of the name with Kentish branches, and expressed 
the opinion that all the lines tend toward that shire and that within its 
limits the name originated. An inspection by the editor of this work of a 
London Post Office Directory of Kent and adjoining counties indicated that 
the name was much more common in Kent than in its vicinity. The pub- 
lishers of the directory divided the enrolled population into two classes, 
the gentry and the traders, and gave of the name of Hills nine of the for- 
mer and sixty-two of the latter class as residents of Kent, with its popula- 
tion of 848,294, while of that name but one of the first, and nine of the 
second class are recorded as inhabitants of the adjoining county of Surrey, 
although its population at the same date exceeded that of Kent by more 
than twenty-five per cent. Similar results followed a partial analysis of 
neighboring counties. Pursuing still further his investigations in this line 
he found a comprehensive work that localizes the name beyond all question in 
southeastern England. In his " Homes of Family Names in Great Britain " 
published in London in 1890, Mr. Henry Brougham Guppy has taken 
the farmers of the land as the " most stay at home class " and has noted 
their names as given in the directories of the various shires, classifying 
them where he found that they exceeded seven in ten thousand. His 
classification was into six divisions. 

First — General names occurring in from thirty to forty counties. 

Second — Common names occurring in from twenty to twenty-nine 
counties. 

Third — Regional names occurring in from ten to nineteen counties. 

Fourth — District names occurring in from four to nine counties. 

Fifth — County names which are established in two or three counties and 
have usually their principal home in one of them. 

Sixth — Peculiar names, which are mostly confined to one county and 
generally to a particular parish or division of that county. 

In neither the first or third of these classifications did the name of Hill 
or Hills appear. In the second division the name Hill is included with the 
statement that it is "pretty generally distributed over England, except in 
the counties north of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Relatively scarce in 
southeastern counties where its place is taken by Hills." More than seven 
farmers of the name of Hills in ten thousand of that occupation were lo- 



XIV INTRODUCTION. 

cated in five counties. Their shires are placed in the fourth division in 
the proportion of twenty-one yeomen to ten thousand of this class in Kent, 
eighteen in Sussex, eighteen in Suffolk, seventeen in Hants [Hampshire] 
and twelve in Surrey. Suffolk, less than thirty-five miles north of Kent, is 
separated from it by the County of Essex, and the author quoted, notes 
against the name of HUls in Suffolk that "though characteristic of the 
county is more numerous elsewhere." Surrey and Sussex lie west of and 
adjoin Kent ; Hants lies west of and adjoins those two shires, the four 
counties making the southeasterly corner of England. The most distant 
boundary of either of the five counties mentioned by Mr. Guppy in his 
localization of the name is less than one hundred miles from Saint Margaret 
Hills where it is believed that the name originated and in the vicinity of which 
all investigations indicate that it has remained relatively more numerous 
than in any other part of southeast England. In one of his reports Mr. 
Withington says: " I have, I think, conclusively shown that though con- 
fused in individual instances by careless scribes or illiterate branches, the 
name Hills is a distinct one, separated from Hill and traceable always, 
where far enough sought to the County of Kent, in which shire it has always 
been, as it still is a prominent one." 

COMMON ANCESTOIl. 

In this connection the work of the expert genealogist assists not only 
the theory of the Kentish origin of the name but also that of the descent 
of the English emigrants to New England from a common progenitor. 
The reasoning that might justify the belief of a common ancestry rests 
upon certain facts and coincidences, which, taken by themselves are but 
clews or indications, and although collectively they prove nothing, they so 
support one another, that one who studies them finds himself almost 
irresistibly drawn to the conclusion that there is room for no other theory. 
Perhaps some of the strongest of these indications that are so connected 
that they can be woven into a web, have for a foundation a communica- 
tion from Mr. AVithington in which he gave the evidence of what he con- 
siders the offshoot of the lines of William and Joseph the emigrants of 
1632 and 1638 from Kent to Essex. With reference to book and page 
of the probate record, he states his belief that he has " at last got hold of 
the Kentish connection of the Hilles in Essex." He then gives an ab- 
stract of the will of "John Hillys of Aldyington, Kent, Parker," (Keeper 
of the Park of Aldington) dated April 28, l.')05, proved at Canterbury two 
months later. Condensing this abstract, the substance of it is as follows ; 
To his brother Christopher he gives a money legacy, a " gelding " and one 
of his " gunnes." His brother Oliver receives money and his " best gown 
and doublet," and his brother Edward is to have his "gray ambling 
nagge" and his " bow and arrows." The testator adds, " I will Christo- 
pher my brother shall sing and say masses for my soule and all Christian 



INTRODUCTION. XV 

soules, by the space of half a yeare, and to have therefore five marks 
sterling." 

His wife Johan and brothers Christopher and Oliver were made execu- 
tors of the will, " John Orond parson of Norton, brother Edward and 
William Weston" to be overseers. In regard to compensation for serv- 
ices, he provided in part in these words, " my brother the parson and my 
brother Weston, to be rewarded by my wife." 

The reasoning of the genealogist as to the Kentish-Essex connection is 
evidently founded on his knowledge that the brother Edward referred to in 
the will of 1505 died in 1518 at Ingatestone, Essex, only three miles from 
Great Burstead, mentioning in his will his brother Christopher, the priest ; — 
and the fact that, although he did not find the' birth or baptismal record of 
William, the emigrant of 1632, at High Ongar, the birth place of his wife, 
Phillis Lyman, he " did find that a hitherto undiscovered Weston Hills 
had more progeny than any other Hills there.'' 

This interesting will certainly proves that the testator had a brother, 
styled "gentleman" in probate proceedings, who was settled in Ingate- 
stone nearly a century before Joseph Hills, the emigrant of 1638, was born 
in the adjoining parish of Great Burstead. It is also known by entries 
made in the old manuscript book of original entries in relation to business 
transactions now held by the New England Historical and Genealogical 
Society that Joseph had relatives living in Ingatestone in the year in which 
he emigrated to New England. 

The unusual name of Weston prefixed to our surname justifies the sup- 
position that " brother Weston " was a brother-in-law of John of Alding- 
ton, and that some of the family into which he married had named a child 
for him, and that Weston Hills, of High Ongar, and Edward Hills, of In- 
gatestone, had a common Kentish progenitor. 

The natural inference follows that as William Hills is probably of the 
branch of the f amil}' that settled in the vicinity of the first named parish, 
and Joseph Hills of that branch that located in the neighborhood of that 
other Essex parish in Billericay, that the emigrants of 1632 and 1638 were 
each descendeuts of a common ancestor in a progenitor of John Hillys of 
Aldington. 

Other indications, equally interesting and suggestive, supplied by ancient 
English records could be given. But taken singly or together the evidence 
will only justify the statement that all who carry by right the name of Hills 
or Hillis are probably the descendants of a common ancestor. The diffi- 
culty of tracing English pedigrees into the distant past is so great, that it 
will be a matter of surprise as well as of congratulation if the ancestors who 
transmitted the name of Hills to the emigrants of New England and their 
descendants are discovered. 

When it is remembered that our language had no settled orthography for 
a long time after the settlement of New England, and that any arrangement 
of letter? that expressed the sound of any word was permissible, it is not 



XVI INTRODUCTION. 

strange that ancient records have disclosed many different spellings of our 
name. Alphabeticully arranged the following list appears : Halis, Hallis, 
Halys, Thomas de Helles [6 Edward III.], John de Helles [8 Edward III.], 
Richard de HeUes of Wye [47 Edward Ul.^, Hell [1426], Hells [1.^95], 
Helle [12 Edward IH.], Hellys [12 Edward III.], Hils, Hiles, Hilles, Hil- 
lis, Hillys [15 Henry VIII.], IliUs, Hillz, HuUes, Hyles, Hyelys, Hyllas, 
Hylles, Ilylls, HyUis, HyUse, HyUz. 

The combination of letters that look so strange gradually disappeared 
in the later records, until in our day the name seldom appears in any 
other form than Hills or Hillis. That the spelling of the name that 
would be most generally repudiated by members of our family, that of the 
testator of 1426, was that of one known as Hills, is evidenced by the act 
of the clerk who recorded his will, and corrected his too great abbreviation 
by inserting in the margin of the record what he deemed the proper combi- 
nation to express the name by which the decedent was known in life ; 
" Hyelys " was his idea of a good form. In a recent Boston directory the 
editor found the names of 476 persons of the surname Hill, 33 named 
Hills and 7 when the spelling was Hillis. He found in the New York di- 
rectory of the same year about 300 designated Hill, 40 Hills, 7 Hillis, 
2 Hilles, and one each with a spelling Hellis, Hillas, Hilles and Hilleis. 

COAT ARMOR. 

Looking through the works in which the arras of the nobility and gentry of 
the United Kingdom are of record, it was found that Burke in the London 
edition of 1844 of his " General Armory" had noted 78 families entitled to 
bear arms in connection with the name of Hill ; while only 4 carrying the 
name of Hills and 1 Hillis were so designated. Three of the four grants 
to the name in the form in which it is usually carried are localized as might 
be expected in southeastern England. In his edition of 1878 " Sir Bern- 
ard Burke, C. B., LL. D., Ulster King of Arms," failed to give the arms 
granted to John Hills of London in 1586 ; but the name is still credited with 
four armigers, the coat armor of the " Right Rev. George Hills, Bishop 
of British Columbia 1859 " being added to his blazonings. That some of the 
names were of the gentry as early as the sixteenth century is manifest by the 
publication of the Harleian Society recording the Herald's visitation of Lon- 
don in 1568, which gives this record : " Richard Hills alias Hulles of Milton in 
the county of Kent, and wife Elizabith, daughter of ... . Bede ; had 
Richard Hills, Gentleman, Citizen and Merchant Taylor of London, who 
married Agnes, daughter of Xtopher Lacy of Yorkshire, Gentleman, and 
they had 1 John, 2 Gershom, 3 Barnabus 4 Daniel." The "Richard 
Hills, Gentleman," [1514-1587] mentioned in the record, was the Master of 
the Guild of Merchant Tailors of London, for 1561 and 1562; founder not 
only of a free school still in existence in that city, but also of an almshouse for 
poor widows ; one of the most notable men of our name. " The early His- 



INTRODUCTION. Xvii 

tory of the Guild of Merchant Tailors " of London, published in 1888, in 
its second volume devotes six chapters and a part of another to his life. 

It was probably to his son John (at one time a member of the guild, af- 
terwards a merchant of London who was living in 1633, when he had chil- 
dren and grandchildren) that a grant of arms was made dated March loth, 
1586. 

It is perhaps worthy of note in this connection, that a copy of these arms 
" Sable, a cheveron, or, between three cats passant, argent," for so many 
years that none now living can tell for how many, was kept at the farm iu 
Newbury, where Joseph Hills' last days were spent, and which after his 
death became the property of his son Samuel. One of his descendants 
whose birth and girlhood was near that spot, in a letter to the President of 
this Association, dated March 5, 1895, referring to the old homestead and 
its contents, said " The old farm .... descended by wUl to the oldest son 
until my father's brother came into possession. He had but one child, a 
daughter .... she sold the farm after she became a widow. All the 
old family papers belonged to her and she gave me the Joseph Hills Coat- 
of-Arms, three leopards on a shield." 

To Hills of Chelsea, County Middlesex and Isle of Sheppey, County 
Kent, was granted in 1784, arms showing three silver hillocks on a green 
shield. It is clear that no one connected with either of the three branches 
of the name which are known in America can claim any title to the shield 
of 1784. Equally clear that the descendants of William of Roxbury and 
Hartford, the emigrant of 1632, or of Joseph of Maiden and Newbury, 
the emigrant of 1638, have no interest in the grant of 1586, and that the 
only possibility that those who claim Robert of Wye in Kent, who was 
born about 1650, as their ancestor can rightly display the sable shield and 
its embellishments is that he was a grandson of the London merchant to 
whom it was granted, a possibility so remote as not to be worthy a second 
thought. The editor of this work has not been able to discover at what 
date, to one of the name of Hills was granted arms displaying on a hori- 
zontal band of sable, in the middle of a shield of ermine, a castle with two 
turrets in tlie natural color of stone ; the castle being duplicated for crest ; 
and in connection with Americans of that name, only knows that a copy 
of these arms was long in the possession of a branch of the descendants of 
the emigrant of 1632, but without knowledge by those now living of its ori- 
gin. The history of the shield so far as it is known would seem to confine 
it to Essex, in which county the emigrant of 1638 and the wife of the emi- 
grant of 1632 were born and from which it is certain that one, and probably 
both, emigrants left Old for New England. 

This shield, " Hills : (late Astell of Colne Park, Co. Essex), ermine on a 
fess, sable, a tower with two turrets, proper. Crest,, a tower, as in the 
arms," is to-day carried by a family who by the consent of the proper Eng- 
lish authorities can trace its right to it only from 1790. Colne Park in 
Essex was, about the beginning of the eighteenth century, the property of 



XVlll 



INTRODUCTION. 



Sir Thomas Gage, who sold it to Mr. Michael Hills of Colchester, and his 
son bequeathed it to Philip Astell, Esq. , who took the surname and arms 
of Hills. Only a description is given without localization of the arms of 
Hillis, " Per Pale, or and Gules, a lion passant argent." 

But one Hills shield, with crest, is disclosed by the various compilations 



in relation to heraldry 
which may have been

cross and crescents. Crest, a red horse, running with a black, broken

Such study as the editor had been able to give to the family name as 
connected by published works with heraldry, long since satisfied him that 
the shield of the cross and crescents not only antedated all other coat armor 
borne b}' any of his surname, but was probably of such ancient date as to 
have been carried by the family that occupied the manor of Saint Mar- 
garet Hills, at least until about the end of the fifteenth century, when 
that estate passed to those of another name. 

The College of Arms, commonly called the Heralds' College, was estab- 
lished in 1483, and for the purpose of ascertaining if that coat armor was 
of record after that date, with the concurrence of his associate of the com- 
mittee for publication of this work, the editor caused " a general search" 
to be made among its archives. That investigation began in the July of 
the past summer. An index of findings was received in August, and on 
the thirtieth of that month funds were forwarded for copies of such records 
as the table of references indicated as of value. Unfortunately, the officer 
in charge of the work was obliged to undergo a serious operation. 

A letter dated Nov. 9, 1904, written by the Herald to the gentleman in 
London who represents the committee in the investigation, has been for- 
warded to the editor. After giving the cause of delay, that ofiicer stated 
that he was not at that date out of the nurse's hands and thought he could not 
be at the college before Christmas. At the present writing [Feb. 6, 1905] 
the earlier sheets of this genealogy must go to the printer and the result 
of the investigation will be incorporated in the first appendix of this volume. 



INTRODUCTION. XIX 



BRANCHES. 



In a research that has been practically continuous for more than ten 
years, the authors of this work have found none carrying the name who 
could trace their lineage to emigrants from England who crossed the At- 
lantic before the beginning of the nineteenth century, who were not de- 
scendants either of William of Roxbury and Hartford, the emigrant of 1632 ; 
Joseph of Maiden and Newbury, the emigrant of 1638 ; or the sons of 
John of Ashford in the County of Kent (grandson of Robert of Wye) the 
first of whom came to New England in 1794. 

All these emigrants landed at Boston in Massachusetts, With rare 
exceptions, it can be said that all of those carrying the surname HiUs 
among the English speaking people of America even in the opening years 
of the twentieth century, are through them of Old and New England ori- 
gin. There was a John Hills in Boston in June, 1686, where and when his 
daughter Susanna was born; but he died November 21, 1690 at the early 
age of twenty-six, leaving no son. 

A gentleman long resident in Boston was known as Deacon Hill of the 
New South Church. The inscription on his tomb in the Granary burying 
ground reads " Here lies buried the body of Deacon Henry Hill. Died July 
8th, 1726, aged 70 years. This tomb was erected by his sons John and 
Thomas Hill." A third son, Ebenezer the youngest of the family was born 
in 1705. He left two daughters, Mary and Anna, both married ; one in 1713 
the other in 1714. When Henry Hill made his will on the 8th of May, 1726, 
after these children, he mentions his kinswoman, Anne Watts "daughter 
of Thomas Watts, and Dennis his wife, my sister " living at ^ place called 
Margate in the Isle of Thanate, Kent ; and the link that connects the tes- 
tator with his English progenitors is found in a publication of marriage 
licences issued from Canterbur}' in Kent, by the ecclesiastical authori- 
ties of tlie Cathedral City. In the third of the series, page 496, 
this record appears: "Watts, Thomas, of St. John in Thanate, seaman, 
twenty-three and upwards, whose parents are dead, and Dennis Hills of 
St. Peter in Thanate, spinster, nineteen, daughter of Henry Hills, who 
consents, William Watts of St. John aforesaid, seaman, bonds. January 
24, 1671." Here seems to be conclusive proof that in old England, less 
than sixty miles from the spot where the HiUs name originated, the father 
of the decedent of 1726 was living in 1671, and that it was as his niece, 
that he recognized Anne Watts, his sister's daughter, as his kinswoman, 
and mentioned her in his will, the signature to which reads Henry Hill. 

A John Hills, who was of Connecticut, was granted fifty acres of land for 
services in the Pequot war. No record of his marriage, death or of the 
conveyance by that name of that land or any part of it has been found. 
The Pequot fort was destroyed May 26, 1637. To have been a soldier at 
that date this grantee must have been born not later than 1620. He could 
not have been the son of the emigrant William of Roxbury and Hartford, 



XX INTRODUCTION. 

for he was evidently unmarried when he landed in New England in 1G32 
and his eldest known child was not born till about 1646. John, the son of 
the emigrant who settled in Massachusetts, was not born till 1632 and did 
not leave old England till 1638. AVhile it is not impossible that a John 
Hills from England was among the earliest settlers of Connecticut and 
escaped definite record, all the probabilities point to a clerical error in the 
name, and that for once a recording officer wrote Hills for Hill, when 
many of his class from the earliest settlement of the country to the present 
time have often written Hill for Hills.

GENEALOGY OF 

THE DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM HILLS 
OF ROXBURY, MASS., 1632, AND HARTFORD, CONN., 1635 

William Hills, doubtless the first of the name to land in New England, 
was probably a native of the County of Essex, in the mother country,* the 
shire in which Joseph Hills was born and from which he emigrated in 1638. 
As has been stated researches in England point strongly to the probability 
that they had a common ancestor, who was living about two hundred years 
before they left Old for New England. 

These two emigrants are distinguished as the progenitors of nearly all 
of their surname who are of New England ancestry. 

The first record relating to the earlier emigrant shows that he was a 
passenger in the ship " Lyon," William Pearce, master, which sailed from 
Bristol, June 24, and entered the harbor of Boston on the 16th of Sep- 
tember, 1632. The next record concerning him proves that as a resident 
of Roxbury he was admitted a freeman of that town on the 14th of May, 
1634; that municipality became a part of Boston in 1868. "The first 
church in Roxbur^' was gathered in 1632." It is not known at what date 
the Rev. John Eliot, sometimes called the Apostle to the Indians, made 
his " records of such as adjoyned themselves unto the fellowship of this 
church of Christ at Roxborough." Of an emigrant of that year he says, 
"William Hills a manservant, he came over in the year 1632, he married 
PhiUice Lyman daughter of Richard Lyman, he removed to Hartford on 
Conecticott, where he lived several years, w^^out giving such good satis- 
faction to the consciences of the saints." 

These are all the known records relating to the life of the emigrant in 
Massachusetts, where it appears he lived as a "manservant." It was 

* Since these pages were in type evidence satisfactory to the editor has been sub- 
mitted to him as to the marriage of the parents of William Hills and the birth of 
their children. As he returns the proof sheets to the press he has not the author- 
ity to use the important information. What he can say regarding it at a later 
day will be found in Appendix B at the end of the work.

GENEALOGY OF WILLIAM HILLS. 

common in the early days of the colonies for young men who wished to 
leave Old for New P^ngland to bind themselves by indentures for a term 
of years, the consideration being money advanced for the payment of 
their passage and wages to the end of the specified term of service in the 
new country. Similar arrangements were doubtless made by young women 
of that time, for among Mr. Eliot's emigrant church members several are 
recorded as " maide" servants. 

Of the seventy male passengers of the " Mayflower " as given in Hot- 
ton's original lists, at least nine can be identified as minors. John Hook 
is designated " a servant boy," John Hovvland and nine others as 
"servants," while George Soule and Elias Story recorded as " two men 
in Winslow family," were doubtless, with their fellows, bound for service 
to their more prosperous conapanions on the famous ship. 

The fact that Ann Mumford was a passenger on the ''Lyon" on the 
voyage that terminated in September, 1632, and that she was the intended 
wife of tlje Apostle Eliot, strongly indicates that William Hills was in- 
dentured to that clergyman. That she was his affianced wife is clear, for 
in speaking of himself he said that those who formed his church came in 
a body and " settled at Rocksborough, to whom he was fore ingaged. . . . 
Also his wife came along w*^ the rest of his friends the same time & 
soone after theire coming, they were married, viz. in the 8^^ month 1632." 
The indication becomes almost conclusive evidence when the record shows 
" Thomas Hills, a manservant, he came in the yeare 1633, — he lived among 
us in good esteeme & godly, & dyed about the ll*^^ or 12'^ month, 1634, 
and left a good savor behind him, he was a verj' faithful & prudent servant 
& a good christian, he dyed in Mr. Elliots family." The records seem to 
tell this plain story. William and Thomas were brothers. They came 
from Essex in England, the home of EHot, doubtless that of his wife and 
of the friends "to whom he was fore ingaged." The harsh criticism of 
William by his master and pastor followed some disagreement as to service 
or religious belief. Thomas died in 1634. William doubtless left Roxbury 
for Hartford October 15, 1635, with Richard Lyman, the father of his 
wife Phillis ; joining at that time the church of Cambridge, which emi- 
grated as a body and originated the first church of Hartford. AVith a farm 
of forty-eight and one-half acres, not including the " nine accres of salt 
marsh " or the " fifty-five accres and a quarter" in another part of the 
town and "thirty and nine accres" in Dedham, and two other lots that 
Mr. Ehot had bought, aggregating more than twenty acres, that worthy 
saint doubtless regretted the loss of the services of the two brothers. It 
was not an age of tolerance, and it is not surprising, while he praised the 
faithful servant who died in his family that he could not think of the other 
as a good Christian. 

No record of the first marriage of William Hills has been found other 
than that already quoted and one other given by Mr. Eliot in his record of 
church membership : " Phillis Lyman the daughter of Richard Lyman, she 



GENEALOGY OF WILLIAM HILLS. 6 

came to the land w^ her fath"" ano 1631. God wrought upon her heart in 
this land ; she grew deaf, w^ disease increasing was a great affliction to her. 
She was married to William Hills & lived w*^ him at Hartford on Conec- 
ticot." The date when this marriage terminated by the death of the wife 
is not known. She was Uving when the wUl of her father, the first on 
record at Hartford, was probated in 1640. By it " Fillis, the wife of 
William Hills," received a legacy. Evidence recently discovered shows 
that she probably died before 1648. That her English ancestors were of 
good family connection would seem to be abundantly proved by the state- 
ment and evidence given in the genealogy of her family. The frontispiece 
of that work shows the arms of Lyman of Elssex, quartered with those of 
Osborne, her maternal ancestors, who were of the adjoining county of 
Kent. The editor of this genealogy failed to find evidence in any pub- 
lished work that supported the claim to the Kentish arms ; but it seemed 
to be clearly proved that the coat armor of the Lymans, of a design so 
simple as to indicate that it was among the earliest in use, was rightfully 
carried by that branch of the family into which Richard her father was 
born. 

It has been generally accepted as a fact that Mary, the widow of the 
emigrant of 1632, was his second wife, but it appears by probate records 
that she had two predecessors. The distribution of the estate of Thomas 
Bunce shows that one parcel of real estate, about four acres on the east 
side of the great river, had been bought by the decedent of William Hills, 
and that the lot was " formerly Richard Risley's, and came to said Hills by 
right of his wife relict of said Risley, as appears by a writing under said 
Hills hand, dated Feb. 26, 1680," witnessed by James Steele and Thomas 
Watts. The inventory of the Risley estate was filed October 17, 1648. 
The court records show there were three children, the eldest less than eight 
years old, "William Hill bringing them up and giving security to the 
court " for their several portions of their father's estate. 

The wife who probably survived William Hills was, before her last mar- 
riage, Mary, the widow of John Steele, Junior, who died about 1653 leav- 
ing two sons, John and Samuel. The inventory of his estate was taken 
March 11, 1654. The Warner genealogy states that Mary, daughter of 
Andrew Warner, of Hadley, Mass., married John Steele, January 22, 
1646, and that her second husband was William Hill, of Hartford. When 
the widow Steele again became a wife is unknown. It was before the 
25th of January, 1669, for at that date the Steele estate was settled, and 
in the instrument of distribution she is referred to as Mary Hill, and 
William Hill, her husband, " having taken upon himself to administer the 
estate, is to make good to the children as they come of age." That her 
second husband was William Hills, of Hartford, and that she was living 
some twelve years later, appear from the wiU of the emigrant of 1632, 
which is dated February 21, 1681, in which he refers to the revenues of 
the lands in Farmington as those he has " right unto by and in right of

my wife," and provides that they be " demanded and received " for her. 
She probably was the mother of Jonathan ( boru about 1664 ), youngest 
son of the emigrant. 

In the historical catalogue of the First Church of Hartford, the name of 
William Hills appears among those of the original and early members in 
connection with the words " dismissed July, 1683, moved to Hadley." 
William Hills bought a large tract of land at Hoccanum ( East Hartford) , and 
resided there for many years. From it he deeded to sous and sons-in-law. 
That he had not moved to that place in October, 1669, is clear, for the 
Colonial records show that he, with his sons William and John, were " free- 
men residing on the south side of Hartford " at that date. It is a matter 
of some doubt if his death, in 1683, occurred in East Hartford or in Hadley, 
the early home of the wife of his old age. 

Concerning the genealogy of the early settlers of Connecticut, it should 
always be borne in mind that the town and church vital records are in a 
very vague, incomplete, and unsatisfactory condition. Consequently, in 
tracing the genealogy of the descendants of William Hills, of Hartford, no 
records cau be found of the births and marriages of many of the first four 
generations of those who could claim him as an ancestor. 

Fortunately the records of wills and administrations in the County Pro- 
bate Courts furnish the names of most of the children of the descendants of 
those early days who were living at the death of their progenitor, and also 
those of grandchildren interested in the estates that passed through the 
courts. These, together with the land records in the Registries of Deeds, 
afford the only knowledge now obtainable of very many of the descendants 
of William Hills. 

The editor of this work regrets that he has been unable to inspect a 
valuable private collection of genealogical data, which he has been in- 
formed has been collected by a resident of Hartford, who was born to the 
name and is a direct descendant of the emigrant of 1632. Speaking for 
all her more or less distant cousins he ventures to express the hope that it 
may yet be put into a form that will supplement the compilation of this 
genealogy. Condensing what the compiler has gathered into the usual form 
of a genealogical work the record begins with the first of the name who is 
known to have left Old for New England. 

1, William^, born in England came in ship " Lyon," arrived in Boston, 
September, 1632 ; probably died at Hartford, 1683, where his will was 
probated, December 6 of that year. Married 1st, Phillis Lyman, daughter 
of Richard and Sarah (Osborne) Lyman who emigrated from High Onger, 
Essex County, P^ngland, in 1631. He married, 2d, the widow of Richard 
Risley, who died prior to October 17, 1648, the date of the inventory of his 
estate. Tlie date of her death is unknown. He married, 3d, Mary, widow 
of John Steele, Jr., of Farmington, who died there, 1653-4, daughter of 
Andrew Warner of Hadley, Hampshire Co., Mass., who was living in 1681.

GO. Ebenezek* (Joseph' Willianr, William^), b. P'armington, Conn. 
No record other than that he was sou of Joseph'^, of Farmington. And 
that he was not living when his father's estate was settled in 1751 has 
been found relating to this Ebenezer. 

61. David* (Joseph^ Willianr, William^), b. Farmington, Hartford 
Co., Conn., Sept. 15, 1716. This David was of Hartford or East Hartford 
for several years, certainly from and including 174:.S to 1751. The settle- 
ment of his father's estate in the last named year and land transactions in 
previous years would determine the fact, which is put beyond doubt by 
the baptism of his daughter in East Hartford in the former year and the

GENEALOGY OF 
THE DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH HILLS 

OF MALDEN AND NEWBURY, MASS., 1602-1688 

2001. Joseph Hills^ was born in the parish of Great Burstead, Bil- 
lericay, Essex, England. The record of his baptism reads, "1602, 
March, Joseph Hilles the sonne of George, was baptized the third day." 
Neither the birthplace nor parentage of George Hills has yet been discov- 
ered. The earliest known record* in relation to him is that of his mar- 
riage, — " George Hilles, linen draper, and Mary Symouds, of Billericay, 
County Essex, widow of William Symouds, late of same, tanner, general 
license of the Bishop of London, 13 Oct. 1596." An unfortunate break in 
the register of Great Burstead, all records between 1579 and 1596 being 
missing, will probably prevent the discovery of the maiden name and par- 
entage of the wife of George Hills. 

Joseph Hills, as shown by his signatures, used but five letters, in the 
form now commonly used, in his surname. In the baptismal records of his 
brothers and sisters born before 1607, like that which relates to himself, 
the name has two vowels. The change to Hills in the entry of the chris- 
tening of his sister Rebecca in February, 1608, and of two younger chil- 
dren, doubtless followed the advent of a new Vicar into the living of 
Great Burstead. In that parish, on the twenty-second day of July, 1624, 
Joseph Hills was married to Rose Clarke whose birth record has not yet 
been found. There his elder children were born. Not later than March, 
1632, the family removed to Maldon, also of Essex, which was the birth- 
place of sons John and " Steven " and of daughter Sarah. 

In 1638 he was the " undertaker" of the voyage of the ship " Susan and 
Pollen," which arrived July 17 of that year, and landed her passengers and 
cargo at Boston, in New England. His first abiding place was where the

possibly is that of bis baptism.

256 GENEALOGY OF JOSEPH HILLS. 

settlement of Charlestown was located by Governor "Winthrop, between the 
Charles and Mystic rivers, and which, about the middle of the nineteenth 
century, became a city. In 1874 it was annexed to Boston. The family 
dwelling was " near the market place," but in a few years he was a resi- 
dent of that part of the town north of the Mystic river, establishing his 
home at "Mystic Side" on a farm of considerable size. He soon be- 
came active in public affairs, was selectman of the town in 1644, and in 
1646 represented it in the General Court, as the colonial assembly was 
then named, and as its legislature is still known under the Constitution of 
the State. Re-elected in 1647, he was chosen speaker of its House of 
Deputies. When " Mystic Side " was set off as a separate town, it was 
doubtless named by him for the place where he last dwelt in Old England. 
That part of ancient Charlestown has long since outgrown the town form 
of government, and with more than thirty thousand inhabitants, is known 
as the city of Maiden. 

While a resident of Mystic Side and Maiden he was captain of its train- 
band. At his death he willed his " buffe coate " to his son Samuel, and 
his " backsword" to Henry Lunt, his stepson. He was Maiden's first dep- 
uty, and the town had no other representative until after 1664. In 1665 
Maiden was not represented, Mr. Hills having removed to Newbury, on 
the Merrimac river. In 1666 his son-in-law, John Waite, was his succes- 
sor, and "for an unbroken series of nineteen years he filled this office," 
being SjDeakerof the House of Deputies in 1684 and nominated as a magis- 
trate in 1683. 

In 1645 Joseph Hills was the first named on a committee " to set out 
lots to the settlers of Nashaway plantacon." In 1648 he was first of a 
committee of four to change the location of the highway " between Winne- 
semet and Redding." In 1650 he was second of a committee, of which the 
governor was chairman, appointed to draw up instructions for the Massa- 
chusetts delegates to a gathering where " the commissioners of all the 
colonies shall meete." In 1653 he was one of a committee of six to con- 
sider the question, " if the Vnited Ci^Uoujes haue power by the articles of 
Agreement .... to ingage the Collonjes " " in warre." In 1654, with 
Captains Hawthorne and Johnson, and the treasurer of the Colony, he 
was appointed to frame a reply to the home government, which had de- 
manded an explanation of certain acts. Three times, in 1650, 1653 and 
1661, he was of committees to audit the treasury accounts, but his greatest 
public service was that of the leading member of the committee that in 
1648 reported to the General Court the first codification of the laws of the 
Colony. The story of his part of the work is well told by one of his de- 
scendants, Mr. D. P. Corey, in his history of Maiden, published in that 
city, in 1899. That he was the actual compiler of the laws, that he pre- 
pared the copy for the press and supervised their printing, is clearly 
proved. The colony recognized the great value of his work, not only by 
money payment but by a grant of five hundred acres of land on the Nashua

river, now a part of Southern New Hampshire, and the remission of hia 
taxes in his old age. But new laws were from time to time enacted and 
old ones changed, and " the Courte finding by experience the great bene- 
fitt that doth redound to the country by putting of the lawes into printe," 
in 1649-50, 1653, 1654 and 1661 appointed committees as stated in the 
vote of the last-named year " to peruse such lawes as are vnprinted & 
vnrepealed & comitt them to the presse." 

For this work Joseph Hills had such prominence that his appointments 
to these committees were three times as numerous as those of any of his 
colleagues except Governor Bellingham who, notwithstanding his official 
position, was outranked by his less distinguished associate in the number 
of times he was designated for such service. 

Rose Clark, the first wife of Joseph Hills, died at Maiden, March 24, 
1650, and he married, June 24, 1651, Hannah (Smith), widow of Edward 
Mellows, of Charlestown, who died about 1650. He was son of Abraham, 
born about 1580; of Charlestown before 1635 and who died there in 1639. 
In January, 1656, he married Helen, or Elline, or Eleanor, daughter of Hugh 
Atkinson, of Kendall, Westmoreland, England, who died at some date be- 
tween January 8, 1661, and November 10, 1662. In connection with this 
marriage a noteworthy incident occurred. In the early days of the Colony 
all marriages were solemnized by magistrates, the clergy having no part 
in the ceremony. In 1641 Governor Bellingham, as magistrate, married 
himself to Penelope Pelham, and when called on to come down from the 
bench and plead to a complaint against him for the act, refused to do so. 
Joseph Hills was a magistrate " for the trial of small causes," and followed 
the Governor's example in his marriage of January, 1656, but, unlike 
the Governor, did not escape pubbc censure. The records of the Court 
for Middlesex County show that, April 1, 1656, "Mr. Joseph Hills of 
Mauldon being presented by the Grand Jury for marrying of himself, 
contrary to the law of this CoUony page 38 in ye old Booke. Hee freely 
acknowledged his offence therein, and his misvnderstauding the grounds 
whereon he went w*'^ he now confesseth to be vnwarrantable. And was 
admonished by the Court." In 1665, he married, at Newbury, the widow 
of Henry Lunt, of that town, who died in 1662, and until his death made 
her dwelling his home. The town clerk's record reads " Joseph Hills and 
Anne Lunt was marryed Oct. 8, 1665." 

His petition to the General Court, dated May 24, 1682, recites that " in 
the latter part of his pilgrimage " he was "totally " bereaved of " the sight 
of his eyes for more than 4 years now past." He died at Newbury, Feb- 
ruary 5, 1688.

264 GENEALOGY OF JOSEPH HILLS. 

The only child of Abigail (Hills) and Joseph Chaffee, of whom any 
record was found, was : 

i. Benjamin, b. Swansea, Sept. 11, 1710; d. — . 

3030. A DAUGHTER^ (Gershom'', Joseph') . There can be no doubt 
that there was a daughter of Gershom and Elizabeth (Chadwick) Hills, 
whose given name is unknown. This appears by the deed that conveyed 
the homestead estate in Maiden, Middlesex Co., where she was born, to 
Ebenezer Hills in 1721. By that instrument, "John Chaffee and Sarah 
his wife, Joseph Chaffee of Harrington and John Tomson of Reho- 
both," part with their respective interest in the property. Rehoboth and 
Swansea are adjoining towns, and " John Tomson " doubtless joined in 
the conveyance for the same reason as his brother-in-law of Barrington, 
that was, as a husband of a daughter of Gershom Hills, who had died 
before the sale of the Maiden estate. 

2031. Benjamin^ (Gershom^, Joseph'), b. Maiden, Middlesex Co., 
Mass., — , 1680; d. Lynn, Essex Co., Mass., June 20, 1768. Married 
Mary , who d. Maiden, Jan. 21, 1742, (g. s.) The death of Benja- 
min Hills is of record in Maiden, which was probably his home town at the 
date of his death.

Sarah, Abigail, and that other daughter of Gershom Hills, who was the 
wife of John Tomson, were married and settled in Swansea or Rehoboth 
in or about the first decade of the eighteenth century. This Samuel was 
their cousin, the son of their father's half-brother. He was of Swansea in 
1708, and in Rehoboth as early as June 11, 1711, the date of the birth of 
his daughter Margaret in that town. (See Appendix C.)
