checked very quickly, I did not see anything. Am going to have to go back to
check closer as all these Hills have to be there.

Accomack County HILLS as best can be determined from available records.
 
There appears to be at least three Richard Hills in this area at the same time.
They may be the same generation or different ones. Unfortunately Francis Hill
is rarely mentioned and nothing has been found to tie one of the Richards to
Francis or either one a father. Somerset County, Md. needs to be checked.
 
Richard Hill of Hunting Creek
 
born at least by 1640 and probably earlier
 
This Richard appears to be the one referred to as Captain Richard. He was a
large land owner compared to the others and his line is easiers to follow. Line
of ancestors on wife's side and desc has been followed by people on ghotes.
 
1. His Will 26 March 1688 probated 21 Nov 1694 - does not mention any sons
only daughters. There are no Deeds from him to any sons so it must be assumed he
had no sons. He owned land on Hunting Creek and on Chungoteage. This would put
him right on the ocean. It is unknown at this time if he was the immigrant or
if he was born in Va. His wife was Mary, surname unknown . I wonder if she was
not a daughter or brother of William Gowers who had a Will in 1668 and left most
of his land to the grandchildren of Capt Richard Hill who was the resid legate

Richard is found at least as early as 1666 in Accomack County
 
From 1637-1640 - There were no Hills listed in the Index
It appears I have nothing between 1640 and 1660.
 
 
ROBERT HILL
 
Appears to be a little younger than Capt Richard
 
md by 1663/64
 
Will - 1 July 1678 - probated 19 Aug 1678
Robert was on the Tax list in 1663
He appears to have lived in Northhampton after the county was formed

RICHARD OF ACCOMACK AND SOMERSET, MARYLAND
 
This Richard moves from Accomack to Somerset, Maryland in 1668 wife was Wilmot
who gives her releast of Dower in several Deeds
owned 550 Ac, owned land on Occahono which he received by Patent in 1664. He
gave Richard Hill, JR. his POA. He was a blacksmith. He sold additional land
in 1685 that he had bought in 1683 I did not see the Deed where he bought this
land.
 
NOTE: This Richard signed with a Mark that is identical to the one signed by
Richard of Accomack that was a weaver and is of the line of this study. Work
needs to be done in Somerset.
 
NOTE: son Richard had no heirs as of 1686
 

 

RICHARD AND FRANCIS OF CRAVEN

 
Francis is easy to identify as he rarely shows up on the Records of Accomack.
He is never on the Tax List that I have seen. He appeared to own no property
other than that he inherited from his in laws. The first mention of him that I
have found in in the Will of John Perry written 5 Oct 1708 and probated 6 Sept
1709. John left his estate to his son John but should John, who was not 21,
die without issue then to his son-in-law Francis Hill. John's wife was Jane. A
John Perry was imported into Accomack Co in 1667 and again in 1674. I have not
been able to determine if he immigrated in 1667 or if he was already there and
had gone out of the County in order to aquire more land. I have also not
determind if this John Perry was the original or maybe a son. The John with the
Will had at least a son who was not 21 in 1708 which would have him born after
1687. His daughter should have been about the same age. If John of 1667 was the
same John of the Will, then there appears to be a 20 year gap where he did not
have children. Also the land left by Jean/Joan to Francis was purchased in 1703
and 1704. This needs to be looked into further.
 
Since Joan/Jane Perry left her land to Francis, it appears that her son may
have died without issue. In a Deed on 1 Aug 1710 Joan Perry widow of John, gave
property to her "son" Francis Hill. On 6 Sept 1710 Francis sold that land to
John Oncely because he was moving. This is when he shows up in Craven County.
Elizabeth Hill relinguished her dower. Francis signed with a MARK the mark is
almost identical to the one he uses in Craven County.
 
If Elizabeth Perry was the mother of Francis Hill's children, then this is
consistent with another generation of a Francis Hill in Craven County. Elizabeth
and Francis were married at least by 1708.
 
I almost have the feeling that Francis is quite a bit younger than his brother
Richard which could eliminate the second generation of Francis.
 
We see a Francis with the wife Catherine in 1745 in Craven. Was this old
Francis with another wife, Elizabeth having died? Or was this the son of Francis I.
Richard and Francis Jr. were born no later than 1735 or so. There are only
two possibilities and I doubt we will ever know the real answer.
 
 
RICHARD
 
There is a little more on Richard, brother to Francis. He married Margaret
Ternall no later than 1693 and probably earlier. His father-in-law, Roger Ternall
had a Will written 23 Dec 1694 probated 17 Sept 1695 in which he leaves to his
daughter Margaret Hill and his grandson Roger Hill which means Roger was born
by 1694 and I suspect he was born by 1688 or so. Roger Ternall had children
under 21 as he left them in the care of Richard Hill among others.
 
Roger Ternall may have married Ann, the daughter of Robert Adkins. Adkins had
a Will dated 17 Feb 1715 probated 3 Sept 1717 and mentioned his daughter Ann
Ternall. It is of interest that Adkins had land on Cingoteague which is where
Capt. Richard Hill lived.
 
NOTE: Was this the Robert Adkins of Craven/Dobbs County
 
A Thomas Tunnell was on the Tax List in 1667 and Roger had a son Thomas. I
wonder if this was Roger's father. Roger was on the Tax List in 1674
 
The first Deed I can prove for Richard, the weaver, is in 1693 were he is the
grantee for land on Timber or Bear Creek. I am not sure exactly where this is
in relationship to the other Hills but it was adjacent to Roger Ternell. I did
not see a Deed for Richard selling this land when he moved.
 
Richard Smith is all through this County in the early Records and he appears to
have moved with the Hills to Craven County.
 
 
 
More work needs to be done in Accomack County but it may take reading the Deeds
page by page. Also, Richard Hill of Somerset needs to be tracked. He was a
Blacksmith. Richard and Francis were weavers which means they were tradesmen.
At that time, trades tended to be handed from father to son, but there is no
indication of an earlier Hill who was a weaver. I have a hunch the Richard of
Somerset may be the father of our Richard and Francis and his father may have been
the Richard Hill who was a millwright and carpenter mentioned in the Maryland
Historical Magazine. I do think this family was in Virginia or Maryland very
early in the 1600's and the name Richard and Francis Hill are seen in Va by 1630.
