About Richard Hill, Jr.

When Capt. Richard Hill wrote his will on 26 Mar 1688 he did not name his son Richard Hill Junior. Evidently Richard Junior had gone to England; he had become a master mariner, succeeding his father and so became entitled to the designation of Captain. On 16 Aug 1690 the Lt. Governor of Virginia, Francis Nicholson, had received a letter from the gentlemen that preserve the peace and execute laws in Maryland wherein they informed him that one Capt. Richard Hill an inhabitant in Maryland who was now on board a ship in the fleet going for England had uttered diverse treasonable words against their Majesty and had raised forces to oppose their Majesty's interest in Maryland. This Richard Hill Jr. had left Accomack County before Aug 1687 and before then had settled in Somerset Co, MD. The 29 Aug 1687 will of William Stevens of Rehoboth in Pocomoke, Somerset Co, MD referred to the plantation on which Richard Hill now lives as tenant of Edmund Howard. Richard seems to have received his patrimony long before his father died and thereafter to have followed his own inclinations.
