Biography

Henry Hill was an apprentice of John Knight in 1694. He married Hannah Drew, daughter of John and Rebecca (Cook) Drew.[1]

On 6 Feb. 1732/33, Henry Hill appeared on a list of petitioners with other Dover residents. They were petitioning for a township that was "very commodious for Settlement lying nigh Winnepissocay Pond". [2]

On 18 Mar. 1733/34 Henry is on a list of men who received lands following the division in Durham. Henry received 25 acres. He is also listed near a Valentine Hill, Nathaniel Hill, and William Hill. [3]

On 2 Mar 1738/9, Henry and Hannah Durham sold land in Durham to Eliphalet Hill. [4]

Excerpt from The Bunker Genealogy:

"John Drew Jr. of Dover, Henry Hill and wife Hannah of Durham, James Bibber and wife Agigail of Dover, Clement (8) Bunker and wife Rebecca of Durham quit claim on "Estate of our father John Drew late of Dover deceased" to "our father and mother Samuel and Rebecca Starbird" ( Rebecca Cook m (2) Samuel Starbird) 22 Mch. 1738/9 (N.H. Prov. Deed 36: 123)."[5]

Henry Hill of Barrington, New Hampshire, petitioned on behalf of his late son Joseph's infant sons, Henry, Robert, and John. Joseph was serving in an Expedition to Canada and was active in the taking of the Island of St. John (likely during the Seven Years War). There he was "slain by a Cannon Ball shot from the Enemy, which almost divided his body." The petition was on behalf of the children who had no mother or father. The case was voted to be dismissed by the House of Representatives on 18 June 1761[6]

Hi

I do not wish to make an assumption but if the birth, marriage and death places are in the united States could this information please be added. As this will assist in avoiding any confusion with similar place names around the world. Thanks Janet
