Lent by William Henry Hill, LL.D.
202. LAURENCE HILL, LL.D., of Barlanark.
Born, 1791; died, 1872.
Writer in Glasgow. Partner of the old firm, established in 1740, now represented by Hill & Hoggan, of which his son, the lender, is a member. Laurence Hill was Chamberlain of Hutchesons’ Hospital, Collector of the Merchants’ House, and holder of many other important positions in Glasgow. He was a public-spirited citizen, and took a leading part in promoting the roads, and afterwards the railways, which have done so much for the city. The Hills have been long intimately and creditably connected with Glasgow. In 1549 James Hill was inducted “Parson of Govan.” He early embraced the Reformed faith, and was the first Protestant “Reader” of Cathcart. Just 200 years after James Hill, the Roman Catholic priest, had been inducted to the parish of Govan his direct descendant the Rev. Laurence Hill, the Presbyterian minister, was inducted to the Barony parish of Glasgow. The deeds relating to these presentations will be found in this exhibition (see Nos. 10891093). The Rev. Laurence Hill was great-grandson of Ninian Hill of Garioch, merchant in Glasgow, who married, in 1609, Helen Hucheson, sister of George and Thomas Hucheson, the founders of Hutchesons’ Hospital and Schools (Nos. 15, 38). The subject of this notice was the Rev. Laurence Hill’s great-grandson. Dr. Hill married, first, Barbara, daughter of James Hopkirk of Dalbeth (no. 166); and second, his cousin Marion Hill (No. 257), daughter of Ninian Hill, W.S.; and by both he had issue.

5 thoughts on “Gallery No. 3.

  1. Connections firing on this one! Laurence Hill jumped out as we visit Barbara Hopkirk’s grave on our Women’s Library Necropolis Tour – and by extension, his grave and that of his second wife which are next to it. We use it to talk about the perils of childbearing in those days as Barbara died at 40 after having 13 children. Also the Ninian Hill connection is fascinating as I believe they are ancestors of Mary Hill who gave her name to Maryhill, my other heritage interest.
