Origin of the Name Hill

The origin of the name Hill was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Hill include Hillstead. This is a locality name meaning 'at the hill', from a person who lived beside a small mountain. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are an Alan de Hill, of County Essex, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and a William de Hill who was a tenant of Telny, Scotland , in the year 1376. A Thomas del Hille, was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379 and a Thomas Hill was baptised in Saint James, Clerkenwell, in the year 1580. A Walter Hill, County Devonshire, was recorded in the 'Testa de Neville', in the reign of Edward I. In Ireland the name is numerous in the Province of Ulster where it was introduced from England Centuries ago.
The Hill coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Hill descendants.
