This page is a collection point for the various men named Thomas Hill, who were Loyalists during the Revolutionary War. Two of them settled in York, Ontario (today: Toronto) after the War. In almost all genealogies for Thomas Hill, UEA, there is conflation among various soldiers who had that name, and this page is an attempt to sort them out. All three of these men are said to have married the same woman, that is, the elusive Hannah Edwards. Her identity is unclear, and it is not even established that her family name was Edwards, owing to the many false genealogies created over many decades because of the Edwards Fortune Genealogy Scam.

At least 2 (and possibly 3) men are known with the name of Thomas Hill (sometimes Hull), who was a soldier for the British side during the American Revolutionary War. Listed below is the sourced information about these men:

1. Thomas Hill of Wyoming, Pennsylvania

  • He was living on the Susquehanna River as early as 1771

2. Thomas Hill, a Quaker, of Bucks County Pennsylvania

  • He descends from a New England family of Hills, who arrived in New England already in about 1650

3. Thomas Hill, UEA, from Somerset England, who married Hannah

  • Probably arrived in North America in the early 1770s, near the beginning the Revolutionary War
  • In some genealogies, he is called "Captain" Thomas Hill--but he was never an officer. During the Revolutionary War, he was a Private. When he was a member of the Queen's Rangers of Upper Canada (1793-1803), he was a sergeant. There exists a different Thomas Hill who was a captain.
