Samuel HILL (1801?-1888)

Samuel HILL1,2 (known as 'Sam'), son of John HILL ( - ) and Susannah SAVERRY ( - ), was born in 1801 (calculated) in London, Middlesex (pre-1888).3,4 His relationship to Ellen is Paternal Great (x2) Grandfather. Sam was convicted on 8 January 1821 at the First Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Recorder. (Gaol Delivery*) in Middlesex, England. Along with John Dean, he was found guilty, of the theft of 56 yards of cotton to the value of £2 10s, the goods of Lionel Mayhew. They were both sentenced on 10 January 1821 to seven years transportation.5,6

he migrated from England to Sydney, NSW arriving on 24 July 1822. He came on the convict transport "Asia I" (2) which departed 4 April 1822. The ship's master was Thos. L. Reid.7,8,9

On 23 January 1824 Sam was assigned to Mary Gilbert in Parramatta, NSW.10 After 1824 he was a baker in Parramatta. Samuel Gilbert, the husband of Mary Gilbert to whom he was assigned was a baker which suggests that this is how he was introduced to the trade. Eventually, Samuel was one of the executors of Samuel Gilbert's will.1,4,10,11

Sam was granted his Certificate of Freedom No. 28/0066 on 25 January 1828.12

he owned property which consisted of land and buildings in Parramatta. It appears that Gilbert who owned a large amount of property, was an influence on Samuel, leading to his own substantial investment in property. At the time of his death he owned ten separate parcels of land valued as shown :

- A piece of land in Church St Parramatta near Windsor Rd, value, £50 passed to Thomas HILL and George HILL;

- Allottment No ? of Section 24 bounded by Windsor Rd on the East, Windsor Rd on the North and an unnamed street on the West, value £1172 passed to Samuel HILL, Henry HILL, William Henry HILL, Elizabeth Mary Jones (nee HILL) and Joseph HILL;

- Allotments 10 and 11 of Section 23 in Albert St, value £114 and £192 respectively passed to Martha GARLAND (nee HILL), Eva Jane JONES and Myra HILL;

- A piece of land bordered by Allotment 6 of Section 24 and Duck Lane, value £200 passed to Eliza Jane BURGE (nee HILL);

- Allotment 3 of Section 42 on the North side of Albert St, value £220 passed to - Alice SCOTT and Samuel John HILL;

- Allotment 4 of Section 23 on the South of Harold St, value £135 passed to George Alfred HILL and Joseph Henry HILL;

- Allotment 8 of Section 62 on the North-West by Pennant Hills Rd, value £25 passed to Percival Thomas HILL;

- Allotment 9 of Section 22 on the South-Eastern side of Pennant Hills Rd, value £33 passed to Samuel HILL;

- Allotment 10 of Section 62 on the South-Eastern side of Pennant hills Rd, value £33 passed to Sydney William JONES and Leonard John JONES.10,13

Sam married Martha HANNAGAN on 2 June 1828 at the Cathedral Church of St John in Parramatta. Still being a convict, Mattie was married with the Governor's approval.14

they lived at 3 Albert St in Parramatta. They probably lived most of their married lives at this address. Samuel's headstone indicates that he was "67 years resident in Parramatta".15,16

he died (aged 87) on 15 November 1888 at 3 Albert St in Parramatta.4,16 He was buried on 17 November 1888 in Grave No. 955 in the Old Church of England section of Rookwood cemetery in Lidcombe, NSW.17,18

 

In March 1886, a Samuel Hill licensee of the Vauxhall Hotel in Granville (a suburb adjacent to Parramatta) was fined £5 and costs for supplying liquor to a man against whom a prohibition order had been issued by the Parramatta Bench. Which Samuel Hill this was has not been identified.19

 

* Gaol Delivery (GD) is defined by dictionary.net as "..... an authority conferred upon judges and others included in it, for trying and delivering every prisoner in gaol when the judges, upon their circuit, arrive at the place for holding court, and for discharging any whom the grand jury fail to indict. [Eng.]".

John HILL (1829-1829)

Text From Source: "Samuel Gilbert was now in the practice of buying land in Parramatta. By 1823, he owned 86 George Street, 14 Phillip Street, and 32 Phillip Street, and he had a block of land on Allotment 21 on the north side of the Parramatta River.
They were both given convict servants by the Government. From 1822-24, Mary Gilbert had Peter Ney from the "Southworth" and, on 23/1/1824, Samuel Hill who had arrived in the "Asia", and in 1825, John Fogarty who came in the "Rinnelli". William Masters, who had come in the "Malabar" in 1818 appears in the 1828 census as the servant of Samuel Gilbert.
In the General Muster of 1825, Samuel Gilbert first appears as a baker, and he already owned his own flour mill. He was quickly becoming prosperous as the town baker in Parramatta. He was supplying the Female Factory there with flour which was being used to thicken the soup @ 18/- per 100 lb."

Text From Source: "I was unable to trace Martha as the marriage certificate for James Joseph Garland and Martha Hill showed Martha’s parents as Samuel Hill and Martha Flanagan. Joseph Hill and Elizabeth May Hill are shown as witnesses."
This raises the possibility that Hannagan might be Flanagan
