Magna Carta


The majority of the Hill Family information from England to Robert Hill, born February 5, 1758, son of William Hill and Elizabeth Johnson was given to me by two different sources: one piece of documentation was part of my grandmother’s estate and the other was sent to me by another Hill family genealogist. The two documents are similar in nature. Please remember that these are family documents and I have not verified any of the information

The residence in the county of Salop of this distinguished family can be traced to a period antecedent to the reign of Edward I, but the name was formerly spelled Hull or de la Hull (1272-1305). Signed 1215 the Magna Carta of King John.
