Robert was born in 1615 in England. He married Mary Webb in 1642 in England. He passed away in Surry County, Virginia and is most likely buried on his plantation.
Sources for this person are sparse, and judging from his FindAGrave memorial changing significantly (see below), in conflict. As with many families in colonial Virginia, identifying which record goes with which person can be a challenge, as there were frequently more than one person with the same name in the same area.
Birth: A record of baptism is found in Taunton for Robert, son of Mr Robert Hill, on 28 December 1615.

Tombstone is on the Farm in Surry County, Virgina. On my summer travels, I was able to get to Virginia and added pictures to Find-A-Grave and my Tree on FTM (Ancestry.com). I'm not totally sure it's a Headstone, because whatever was on it can't be read anymore. Smaller pieces were nearby covering about 30 by 45 foot area in the northwest corner of the property. Please understand I moved nothing I only took pictures. ~ Information provided by photographer Christopher Veltmann
