HILL OF CLAWTON
No baptism has been found for Jacob Hill who married Grace Kingford at North Tamerton in 1719. However, there are many earlier references to Hills in the area. These include the marriage of Simon Hill of Tetcott to Mary Bassett at Launceston in 1683. Simon and Mary appear to have had children baptised at Clawton and North Tamerton, both parishes with which Jacob Hill was later associated.

JACOB HILL was buried on 11 December 1746 at Clawton, Devon. He married on 5 June 1719 at North Tamerton, GRACE KINGFORD, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Venton) Kingford. Grace was baptised on 15 March 1697/98 at Clawton.
Children of Jacob and Grace (Kingford) Hill:
ii ANN HILL, bap 19 Dec 1721, Clawton.
v JAMES HILL, bap 24 Jan 1726/27, Clawton.
 Pelynt parish register abstracts. The children of Thomas Hill named in the will of his sister Grace Hill (Kresen Kernow, AP/H/7186) seem to support the identification of the Thomas baptised at Clawton in 1730 with the one who married Mary Vague at Pelynt in 1761.
