This George Hill was probably the one who "came from England to Virginia, 20 June, 1635," the record says " from the town of Gravesend." He probably settled in Virginia or Maryland, and his son Charles coming from the South, as ' the record shows that he formerly resided on a plantation in Maryland, and indicates that the connection between these persons was that of father and son.

Charles Hill married first, Ruth (Brewster) Picket, 16 July, 1668, widow of John Picket of New London, and daughter of Jonathan Brewster, whose father, William Brewster, was one of the band of Pilgrims that arrived at Plymouth in the Mayflower, December, 1620. The son came over in the Fortune, which arrived 10 Nov., 1621. Mrs. Hill died -with her infant child, 30 April, 1677.

He afterwards married Rachel Mason, 12 June, 1678, daughter of Major John Mason, deputy governor of the colony. She and her infant child died in 1679. He died in Oct., 1684.
