Hill

Value: This distinguished surname, with over fifty entries in the 'Dictionary of National Biography', and having no less than seventy-five Coats of Arms, is of Olde English pre 7th century derivation. It has two completely distinct possible origins. The first and most obvious being a topographical name from residence by or on a hill. The derivation is from the word 'hyll', and requires no further explanation. These topographical surnames, which in their early forms were accompanied by a preposition such as ''ate'' or ''del'', were mong the earliest created, as natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages. Early examples of the name from this source include William Attehil of Cambridge in the 1260 Subsidy Rolls and Thomas del Hill of Yorkshire in the 1379 Poll Tax rolls. However recent research indicates that many name holders may derive from the medieval personal and baptismal name 'Hille'. This is a semi nickname or short form of one of the many Anglo-Saxon compound names with the first element 'hild', meaning battle or war, such as Hildebrand and Hilliard or the French ''hilaire'' from the Latin ''hilaris'' meaning ''cheerful''. These are all surnames and personal names in their own right. One of the ''first'' of all Americans was Elizabeth Hill, recorded as born in ''Elizabeth Cittie, Virginia'' before 1620. The earliest coat of arms is that of Sir Robert Hill in the time of King Henry V1 in 1430 was silver, a black chevron between three water bouchets. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Gilbert del Hil, which was dated 1191, in the 'Pipe Rolls of Norfolk', during the reign of King Richard 1, known as 'The Lionheart', 1189 - 1199. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to 'develop' often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.


POEMS WITH NAMES

Passion is the wine, and love, the glass,
As ritual reserves the times for drinking.
So life gathers dignity and mass,
Sustained by scripts that free the mind for thinking.
Our love waits upon the white-robed table.
Vintage holy fills our hearts with joy.
Elijah comes, that wanderer of fable,
Restoring what the wide world would destroy.
