Meaning, Origin, Etymology
English: Location name from Middle English hill, hell, hull 'hill' (Old English hyll). English: relationship name; in some cases, possibly, from a personal name Hille, a pet form of some such name as Hilger or Hillary. The surname of Hill is of an Old English, Pre 7th Century origin. One of the possible origins for this surname is that it is a topographical surname. It is important to note that topographical surnames are ones that have been given to people who live on, in, or near a man made or natural feature that is widely visible in an area. The point of the topographical surname is that all people in that town or area know from where this person hails because of this topographical surname. In the case of the surname of Hill, the topographical connotation is that the original bearers of this surname were given it because of their location on or around a hill. This surname comes from the Old English word “hyll” which can be translated to mean “hill.” Another possible derivation of this surname comes from the given baptismal name of “Hille,” which is said to be a nickname in the time. This name itself comes from the Old English “hild” which can be translated to mean “battle,” or “war.” This nickname would have been a direct nickname from the English names of “Hildebrand” or “Hilliard,” and the French “hilaire,” or the Latin “hilaris,” which can be translated to mean “cheerful.” The first recorded spelling of the surname of Hill can be found in the country of England. One person, who was named as Gilbert del Hil, was mentioned in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk, in the year of 1191. This document was ordered, decreed, and written under the reign of one King Richard I, who was commonly referred to throughout the ages as “The Lionheart.” King Richard I ruled from the year 1189 to the year 1199. Other mentions of the surname of Hill found in England include one William Attehil from Cambridge, who was mentioned in the Subsidy Rolls of Cambridgeshire in the year 1260, and one Thomas del Hill who was recorded in the Poll Tax Rolls of Yorkshire in the year 1379. It is important to note that at this time, topographical surnames often included the preposition “ate” or “del” as the examples previously mentioned. Those who carry the surname of Hill in the country of England can be found in large concentrations in the areas in and around London. This surname of Hill is also commonly found in the counties of Staffordshire, Yorkshire, and Lancashire. In the country of Scotland, there is a small population of those who carry the surname of Hill. The area that has the largest concentration of Scottish citizens who bears this surname of Hill can be found within Lanarkshire county. Throughout the 1600’s, it was common for European citizens to migrate to the United States of America. The living conditions in their home country were less than ideal, and thus they came to The New World seeking a new and improved life. The first person to bear the surname of Hill in the United States of America was one Edward Hill, who landed and settled in the state of Virginia in the year 1623.
Two Hills have been notable Grand Prix drivers: Phil Hill (b. 1927), the first American to win the World Championship (1961), and Graham Hill (1929—75) who took the Indianapolis 500 in his first attempt (1961), won Le Mans in 1962 as well as the Grand Prix Championship; he won the latter again in 1968. Shortly after retiring he died in a plane crash.
Sir Rowland Hill (1795—1879) reorganised the postal system and introduced the penny post (1840), the precursor of all modern postal systems. His first stamp, the famous ‘Penny Black’ with its ‘bun’ outline of Queen Victoria’s head, is now a collectors’ item (an uncancelled specimen in prime condition costs over £2,000). These stamps established a precedent still in force: Britain’s name never appears on her stamps. Later, as Chairman of the London and Brighton Railway, Sir Rowland pioneered both express train service and special excursion fares.
Henry Hill (1809—81), one of Britain’s all-time great punters, also owned an exceptionally successful stable. He won the Derby in 1846, the Two Thousand Guineas in 1850 and the Goodwood Cup in 1856-all races he had bet on heavily: he needed the winnings to offset his heavy losses on the Stock Exchange (£40,000 in one year alone).
Hill’s Equation in physiology is a mathematical formula for the shortening of skeletal muscle when load is increased.
The first Hillman car, then called Hillman-Coatelen, was built in 1907.
Americans Patty and Mildred Hill wrote one of the world’s most popular songs, ‘Happy Birthday to You’ (1896). Not wishing to capitalise on this happy tune, it was not copyrighted until 1936. All royalties go to charity.
Sir Rowland Hill was Lord Mayor of London in 1549.
Largely due to its descriptive nature, Hill is remarkably prevalent both as the name of towns and cities and as a geographical name. The United Kingdom has 38 towns and cities whose names are related, including 4 Hillheads and 3 Hillsides. The number of related towns and cities elsewhere include 7 in Canada, 3 in Australia, 2 in New Zealand, 3 in South Africa and 42 in the United States (including an impressive 14 Hillsboros).

The Hill family traces their ancestral roots back to Norman origin before the year 1100. From here they branched and migrated, gaining prosperity as a notable family of England and later other countries. And, yes, there is a Coat of Arms recorded for this family name. However, no claim is made to a royal lineage, to noble blood, or right to bear a coat of arms. If, as a matter of fact, they have a heritage, their right is dormant and barred by inability to connect these early Virginians with their overseas ascendants. They, however, take pardonable pride in having an ancestry of unblemished characters, who were blessed with hearts and minds which commanded esteem, made them the peers, and won for them the friendship and confidence of those of the highest standing in their sections; when were peace-loving, law abiding and God-fearing, industrious, progressive and constructive; who achieved signal successes in every field of endeavor and were potent factors in promoting the general well-being of their followmen, the liberty, stability, civilization and welfare of their country. Many have attained to great eminence in the professions, filled the highest public stations with credit to themselves and to honor and glory of country. The name of Hill was derived from the residence of it's first bearers. On or near a hill. Hill is the name most used in America today. According to family tradition, positive, persistent and unvarying, the ancestors of Henry Hill, Nansemond, Va. -- the branch of the family of which I treat -- were Scotch-Irish, from County Down, Ireland. I therefore not a few of the Hills of Ireland. Moses Hill, with a number of other prominent persons, were invited to Ulster, Ireland, to populate and develop it, 1605-1618. Moses Hill had wood land given him, which being thereafter demolished, left a fair and beautiful country, when a later heir of the Hills built Hillsborough . Sir Moses Hill of Hillsboro, d. Feb. 1629, at the age of 76, had the sons Peter and Arthur who afterwards succeeded two sons Francis and Randall. Francis died without male issue and the estate devolved upon his uncle, Arthur Hill of Hillsboro, who during the period of the Irish Rebellion built a fortress at Hillsboro, in recognition of his devotion; this was in 1660 erected into a Royal Garrison and he and his heirs mad Constable of the Castle; died 1663. Some of his sons died young and none were of the names of those that came to America. Moses Hill, went to Ireland 1573. Seats. -- Hillsborough Castle and Merlough House, Dumdrum County Down; and East Hampstead Park, Wakingham, Berks. The Marquis of Devonshire. Motto: "Per Deum et Fermen Ostium". Samuel Hill, an ancestor the Hill family in Ireland, was Treasurer for the County of Buckingham during the time of Oliver Cromwell, 1642. Sir Hugh Hill, son of Rowley, son of John, son of Samuel was created baronet in 1779 and represented the City of Derry in Parliament 1768 to 1795, when he died.........
The arms as here presented are taken from Crozier's General Armory, as brought to Virginia by Col. Humphrey Hill, of King and Queen County, d. 1775, and are described as: "Arms--Azure, on a chevron between three owls argent, three mullets, sable, a bordure ermine." The arms as given Sir Hugh Hil, bore: "The chevrons, with erminois points instead of mulletss, and were placed between the two are easily attributable to the intermarriages with other families bearing arms of that distinction." Sir Henry Blyth Hill, 6th Baronet, of St. Columbs, County Londonderry, Captain and Brevet Major late Royal Irish Fusiliers, sometime Governor of Bohrel el Gazol, attached to the Egyptian Army 1898-1908,etc. Lineage-- Samuel Hill, first ancestor of the family in Ireland, went from Buckinghamshire to Ireland as Treasurer of that Kingdom under Oliver Cromwell in 1642. John, Samuel, Hugh, etc. Motto "No tentes aut perfice" -- "Complete what you attempt," or "attempt not, or accomplish". Samuel Hill in Warwick County, Va in 1693, but no further record of him. The Viscount Hill (Sir Rowland Richard Clegg-Hill) of Hawkstone and Hardwicke, Salop, Baron Hill of Almares and Harwicke, in the same County., etc.
Lineage-- The residence in the County of Salop, of this distinguished family, can be traced to a period antecedent to the reign of Edward I, but the name, instead of Hill, was formerly spell Hull, or de la Hull -- Humphrey Hill, of Buntingale, living tempo Henry V; Ralph, Thomas, Rowland, etc. Motto: "Avancez". The coat of arms of Col. Humphrey Hill are identical with those of Isaac Hill, of King and Queen County, Va. Edward Hill in Virginia, 1622; d. May 15, 1624. His son and grandson bore the same name. All were Burgesses. Members of Council, and held other prominent offices. The tomb of the third Col. Edward Hill, of "Shirley", bears the arms: A lion passant Crest; a demi-lion. The tinctures are not designated. The arms of Hill, County of Wexford, Ireland contain a lion passant, with a demi-lion passant for a crest. From the copy of the Raleigh News and Observer, of some years ago, is taken the following: The Hill Family, of Elizabeth and Charles City Counties, Va.: Arms: Gules, two bars, ermine; in chief, a lion passant, argent. Crest: A boar's head sa; in the mouth of a trefoil slipped, ppr. Motto: "Spe labor levis". Nathaniel Hill, great-grandfather of the late Nathaniel P. Hill, U.S. Senator from Colorado, was born 1705 in the North of Ireland and about 1730 emigrated to New York and settled on the western frontier of the Scotch-Irish settlements then already established west of the Hudson River. The late Governor of New York, David Hill, of New York, descended from Abram Hill, of County Derry, Ireland, who emigrated to Schenectady, N.Y., where he died 1764. There are fourscore possible coats of arms for the Hill family, one being as follows: Arms: Gules, two bars ermine, in chief a lion pasant, per pale or and argent. The crest is a fleur de lys argent. The Motto which is always an optional matter is "Esse quam videri". ; literally, "to be rather than to seem", or freely, "better to be than to seem to be". "In 1661, the Marquis of Worcester obtained letter patent for a breech-loading gun or pistol. In 1664, Abraham Hill obtained letters patent for a similar invention, viz a new way of making a gun or pistol, the breach whereof rises upon a hindge by a contrivance of a motion from under it, by which it is also let downe againe and bolted fast by one and the same motion." In "Dic. of Nat'l Biography", Vol. XXVI, p. 389 we find: Abraham Hill, b. 1635 d. 1721, came of an old family seated at Shilstone in Devonshire; father, Richard Hill, a merchant and alderman of London, was appointed by the Long Parliament treasurer of sequestrations in the summer of 1642 till 1640. At the accession of William and Mary, Abraham Hill became a Commissioner of Trade, and Bishop Tillotsen appointed him Comptroller of Canterbury. He is buried in the Chancel of Sutton Church. He married Anne, daughter of Sir. Bulstrode Whielocke, Knight, had son Richard and daughter Frances."
