Hill Family Little Scotland Hacketstown Co Carlow
« on: Friday 25 March 16 09:35 GMT (UK) »
HILL James and Mary of Little Scotland Hacketstown Carlow were my G Grandparents.

James DOB was 9th June 1835. His parents were John and Frances (Hobbs) Frances DOD was 2nd August 1834. James DOD was 6th June 1918. Marys DOD was 10th June 1928.

I believe they had 9 children 4 of whom came to Australia. 3 boys and 1 girl (My Grandmother Frances DOB 26th June 1867 at Coolgreany.

Mary HILL ( Sheehan) had parents Peter Sheehan and Mother Nolan Mary.

The four children of James and Mary who came to Australia were Peter Patrick William and Frances. William left Western Australia about 1911 to live the rest of his life in Canada. Would love to connect to any of the above families

Cheers

Hello Jack

Many thanks for your reply. The James HILL you mention is the son of the James Hill and Mary (Nee Sheehan) that I am looking for. My Grandmother Frances Stock(Nee HILL) was sister to James jnr. She came to Western Australia with another brother William in 1897. Two other brothers Peter and Patrick HILL were already in West Australia.

I appreciate your reply very much. Bob and I visited Hacketstown in 1996 and saw what was left of the HILL family farm in the Main st of the town. I remember it was right opposite the school. Sadly it was badly neglected.

James Jnr left it to his son Michael who was not capable of running the farm. It was left by Michael to the Kennedy family (local pharmacy family) They were extremely good to him over many years. Such a nice family.

Just thought a bit of the Hill family history may be of some interest to you. If not no harm done.

Thanks again
