Welcome to the Great HILL family, cousin John

My link to Jane HILL is through her eldest brother, James, who is the missing link in this maze of HILL's. The daughter of James, Isabella, was my Great Grandmother. Please join Paxie, (link - James), Joan, (link - Jane) and Val, (link - Henry). Have got lots to share :o)

The following BMD records are extracts, (as indicated), are from the Grahamstown Journal and can be located at The Cory Library, Grahamstown. Please consider these BMD records as secondary information only. Data has not been verified. I have tried to be as accurate as humanly possible, but should there be a gremlin in this transcribe, I would value your edits.
