Hill Crest and Family Coat of Arms

Hill Genealogy & History

Hill is an ancient English surname of great renown and has been granted 75 coats of arms. It has two derivations: locational, meaning residence on or by a hill, derived from the Old English "hyll"; or patronymic from the medieval given name Hille, a nickname for Hildebrand or Hilliard. In Hill family history, the name was found largely in Worcestershire, whence it was imported to England during the Norman Conquest. The independent widespread usage of the name makes Hill genealogy difficult. The Hill motto is "avancez" meaning "advance". Elizabeth Hill was one of the first children born in America, in "Elizabeth Cittie, Virginia", prior to 1620.
