Aha, thanks Pablo – and I even posted on that other thread of yours, though at the time I was interested in the Raphaels and not the Hills.

Can I be really annoying and ask what the sources are for some of this – particularly anything that might prove George and Mary Hill were cousins?  And that John of Hillmount was the son of the Rev John Hill?

What’s your opinion on the lifespan of John Hill of Hillmount?  There’s a burial of a John Hill in 1784 aged 64 at Portglenone Church of Ireland – do you think that’s him?

Sure, no problem.  A lot of that information came from the following book:  On the Shining Bann: records of an Ulster Manor by R. M. Sibbett.  Like yourself, I have been looking at this family mostly from a particular angle.  In my case, a lot of my time has been spent researching the Macaulay family of Cushendall.  One of the weaknesses with my research has concerned the Martin family.  Quite a few years back I approached the FitzGibbon family hoping that they could help.  Unfortunately, most of the information they had concerend only their male line and paid little attention to the distaff side of their family.  As such, I wish to thank you for refiring my interest in Maria Martin, wife of Alexander Macaulay.
