The Hill family of Amwell Township, Hunterdon County goes back to the early 18th century. The first generation was Samuel Hill (c.1670 – c.1749) and wife Elizabeth Jourdaine Williams (1670 – 1749), who immigrated from Yorkshire, England and settled in Amwell Township in the early 18th century, sometime between the birth of sons Paul (c.1700) and Jonathan (1704).

I do not have much information about Samuel and Elizabeth. I have not found an estate record for either of them that might indicate what other children they had besides the four sons below.
