      Joseph Hill or Hills, was a son of William Hill, who came to America in 1632, as a servant. He settled at Roxbury, and was made freeman May 14, 1632; he [father William] married Phillis, daughter of Richard Lyman [the first in America, born about 1580], and removed to Hartford. His second wife [third, actually] was widow Mary Steele, daughter of Andrew Warner of Hadley. He [father William] died in Hartford, July, 1683. In his will he names the following children: William, John, Joseph, bapt. March 17, 1650; Benjamin, Jonathan, Hannah, wife of Thomas Kilburn; Susannah, wife of John Kilburn; Sarah Ward, and Mary Hills. Joseph [born in 1650] perhaps settled in Glastonbury, and was the father of Dorothy, wife of Thomas Hollister.

With respect to the children I now have or hereafter may have by my present wife Elizabeth, my will is that they have, hold and enjoy that lot of land whereon I now dwell, with the buildings, fences and trees thereupon (which lot of land I made over to my sd. wife by way of jointure before my marriage with her, in that tenure that the remainder thereof should be to the children that I should happen to have by her).
