John Hill, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, John Hill might describe his life as follows.

The eldest son of James and Ann Hill, I grew up along Swift Creek in present-day Chesterfield County. After I married Elizabeth Pride, her father gave us 123 acres not far away on Deep Creek, 4 February 1726/7. 
Although we lived in what was then Henrico County, I owned 800 acres on the south side of Beaverpond Branch of Flat Creek across the Appomattox River in Amelia County where our only child, James Hill, would later settle. 
In 1736 I paid taxes on five levies, 225 acres in Henrico, and for registering one birth. 
In 1737 John Brown and one slave were working my Amelia County plantation.  A couple of years later Brown took me to court, but the justices dismissed a case when the “plaintiff absconded.” 
I was dead by 1748, but Elizabeth was still living when James made his will in 1765.

Death of John Hill
John Hill died by 26 Feb. 1747/8 when James Hill Jr. and William Pride Jr. sold to Edward Hill 247 acres originally patented by William Pride The elder Pride had conveyed this land in equal portions to John Hill and his son William Pride. John Hill’s widow, Elizabeth, relinquished her dower right. The name of John Hill fell from the Amelia County tax list after 1747.
