Families covered: Hill of Buntingsdale, Hill of Court of Hill, Hill of Hawkestone

The connection is somewhat speculative. It follows a reference made by Vivian in his works on the Visitations to Devon & Cornwall but we are not convinced by it partly because of uncertainty of the dates of the generations shown on the connection and partly because the arms of this family (identified by Wotton as "Armine, on a Fess, Sable, a Castle, triple towered, Argent" is very different from that shown for the family on the connecting page.

  m. Rowland Bulkeley of Woore

  BLG1952 clearly shows Sir Rowland as younger brother rather than son of Thomas. However, the Barker records identify William Hill of Blore as his uncle rather than his brother and Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas, as his sister (with Leigh records confirming that John Barker was Sir Rowland's brother-in-law). Wotton confirms that he was son of Thomas.
