Samuel Hill was born c.1798 in Wiltshire and was one of at least two children. He worked as a Weaver. Samuel died in 1844 aged about 46. As he died before the 1851 census I don't know exactly where he was born, but he and a sister were christened as adults in Dilton Marsh a couple of years before he married. He was most likely born in Dilton Marsh as this is where his parents were married.

Jane Keeping was born 1796 in North Bradley, Wiltshire and was one of seven children. She worked as a Cloth Weaver and died in 1878 aged 82. She was living with her son William at the time.

Children
Samuel and Jane had at least six children, with mention on there being ten in an old newspaper article about Jane's death. I have been able to confirm five by census records and one by christening records. I don't know if their other children were christened (or where) as I haven't been able to find any more than one record so far.

William is (possibly) the only one of the children to be christened. He and his first wife Martha had seven children. Martha died in 1859 and William remarried the following year to Ruth and they had one child together.

I haven't been able to confirm John in further census records after 1841 but there is one possibility in 1851 with brother George in Middlesex.

Maria and William had at least two children. I can't trace anyone this family after 1861so perhaps they left the country.

Eliza had one illegitimate child before marrying in John 1852, who then had four children together. I can't trace anyone from this family after 1861either so perhaps they left the country too.
