About the Hill surname

I have been researching my portion of the Hill family name over the past 5 or 6 years. My portion of the overall family appears to have originated somewhere in Yorkshire as the earliest member I've been able to find so far is Charles Hill (1750) who was a wheel wright in Yorkshire and apparently moved to The county of Norfolk where the sizable main bulk of the family seemed to establish itself.My own Great Grandfather lived in New Hunstanton for the majority of his life He was born in 1847 anddied in Hunstanton in 1938. My own Grandfather was (Ithink) the only member ofthe family to have emigrated to the United States, and of his family in America there are only grandchildren and Great Grandchildren left. and of the family there are only three boys carrying the name left; myself, my son and my cousin Hershal in Georgia USA. As my son is 50 years old and unmarried and Hershal and his wife (both in their 60's) have no children it looks as though this segment will die out with this generation
