Type: Biography
Note: Henry Hill, the youngest child of Robert Hill I, married Ann Truman of Prince Georges County in 1718. Born to the very poor circumstances described above, Henry later became a land owner and farmer in three Maryland counties. Henry and his second son, Joseph Isaac Hill, were listed by Maryland Historian Peter Wilson Coldham as two of three earliest pioneers bearing the name in the state. The third man, noted by Coldham, was William Hill, likely Henry Hill's uncle, the 6th son of John Hill of London. 1/
By 1734, Henry Hill and family had traveled north to Anne Arundel County, where "Henry Hill, Gent." purchased several tracts of land. That year, he bought a 159 acre tract called "Folly's Point." 2/ On 10 June 1736, he bought a huge 621 acre tract he called "Hill's Delight." 2/ How long he retained his Anne Arundel County properties is not known, but on 4 May 1742, he bought a modest 95 acre tract in Prince Georges County he called "Hill's Second Thought." 2/
While no record of any sale of Henry Hill's lands has been found, on 24 March 1744, he leased 100 acres of Carrollton Manor from Charles Carroll, Esq., for 17-1/2 years. 3/ This land was near the present-day village of Buckeyestown. Fifty acres of this tract was called "Park Hall," from evidence found in Henry's will, probated in the town of Frederick in 1773. 4/ A note of interest is presented here from Lycurgus Perry Hill's work: 5/
"It is obvious that Henry and his family were 'survivors.' Times were extremely hard in this area during the mid 1700s. The area around Frederick County could have been considered a front line against the French and the Indians in the war by that name. It must have been extremely difficult scratching out an existence on a small plot of land with Indians shooting at you from behind every tree. As late as 1763, the State of Maryland was paying fifty pounds sterling for an Indian scalp."
Henry Hill died on 9 February 1773. He likely died in Frederick County, for his will was probated in the town of Frederick on 24 March 1773. His children were named in his will, which revealed his daughters as well as his sons. This will led to my belief that Ann Truman Hill had died before Henry. She is not named in the body of his will. This belief is reinforced by the writings of the late Lycurgus Perry Hill, Jr., and we had never communicated. Henry Hill's final resting place has not been found. Both Henry and his wife Ann were likely buried on his leased farm at Carrollton Manor. Henry and Ann had eight children recorded as follows:
Robert Hill II (1720-April 1795)
Joseph Isaac Hill (1722-1798 Kentucky)
Henry Truman Hill (1724-1799 South Carolina)
Phillip Hill (1727-1774 Maryland)
Thomas Hill (1728-1801 South Carolina)
Elizabeth Hill (c.1730-Unknown)
Catherine Hill (c.1732-Unknown)
