NOTES ON THE HILL FAMILY

1851

Thomas Ames Hill made a will leaving everything to his wife Elizabeth Jane Hill. He died in 1894 and she inherited his estate.

1889

Silk House, No. 63 on the Tithe Map, was inhabited by Thomas Ames Hill and his wife, Elizabeth Jane. {They probably lived there long before this date. The name Glenvue does not appear until the Asset 11th. March 1969, the person who named it remaining unknown.} This family was related in some way to the "Paulton House" Hill family.

1900

John Hill Munday inherited Holly Cottage in Dec. 1900 (proved 11th. Feb. 1981) from his aunt Elizabeth Jane Munday, who died 28th. Dec. 1900.

"That freehold cottage garden and premises at the corner of Ham Lane, Paulton in the County of Somerset, (opposite the former residence of Elizabeth Jane Hill, which is now the residence of Thomas Melhuish).... No. 99 on the Tithe Map. The estimated area was 14 perches, and was conveyed to Thomas Ames Hill by the nieces of Julia Hill and their husbands and relatives by an indenture dated 30th. Sept. 1889. There were another three and a half perches included, which were conveyed to T. H. Hill on the 5th. of May 1893 by Harry Molyneix Carter. The "former residence of Elizabeth Hill" is Silk House, No. 63 on the Paulton Tith Map.

John Hill Munday lived at Hill House, No. 64 on the Paulton Tithe Map. His land denoted as Garden of Hill House & orchard of Hill House appears on a map of Silk House (Glenvue) boundaries, below the name of Col. H. M. Carter, and to the North (Beeches) by {Mr. Hemmins?}

1915

John Hill Munday sold Holly Cottage for two hundred pounds, to Mary Elizabeth Elliott and her husband Edward, boot manufacturer on Jan. 16th. They were already living there.

[Sapper Ernest Dando, Royal Engineers, whose name is recorded on Paulton War Memorial, died at Bangor Military Hospital on May 14th. 1917 and is buried in Paulton cemetery. He was the husband of Nellie Dando and lived at Holly Cottage, Ham Lane.]

Silk House was owned by Thomas Melhuish, who eventually solid it to Alfred John Small, whose wife, May, inherited it when he died on Nov. 17th. 1968. There is an assent dated 11th. March 1969 whic hshows that previously Glenvue House was part of a conveyance dated 26th Feb 1965, between Edward William David Benjamin Hansford Hill & Charles John Dandolph of the first part and Thomas Meluish & Edward Melhuish of the second part, & Alfred John Small of the third part. The date on the Asset copy is 1965, but the "6" is circled and it can be safely assumed that Mr Small lived there before 1965.

His daughter Kathleen says they moved there in 1925.

1959

The Bakery park was transferred on Nov. 27th. to Downside Abbey for conversion as a Roman Catholic Church.

Mr Small started the bakery [?] in 1932 [?]
