|Birth: ||Dec. 27, 1608|
|Death: ||Aug. 15, 1683|
Born by about 1607, based on estimated date of marriage. (Jacobus suggested that he may be that William Hills baptized at Upminster, Essex, on 27 December 1598, son of Thomas Hills; the age is not far off and Upminster is near High Ongar, the home of his future wife.) Came to Massachusetts Bay in 1632 on the "William & Francis." First settled in Roxbury; moved to Hartford in 1636. Died in Hartford by July 1683 (date of inventory).
Married: (1) By about 1638 Phyllis Lyman, daughter of RICHARD LYMAN . Eliot reports that "she came to the land with her father anno 1631. God wrought upon her heart in this Land, she grew deaf which disease increasing was a great affliction to her, she was married to William Hills & lived with him at Hartford on Conecticot."
(2) Late 1648 Mary (_____) Risley, widow of Richard Risley; she died about 1655, presumably at or shortly after the birth of her son Benoni.
(3) Late 1655 or early 1656 Mary (Warner) Steele, widow of John Steele (son of JOHN STEELE) and daughter of ANDREW WARNER; she died after February 1680[/1] (when she is named in her husband's will).
