Daniel Hill the elder

No Dates


Deceased by 1834, the executors of Daniel Hill the elder, William Lee and George Wickham Washington Ledeatt (both q.v.), counterclaimed for various estates in Antigua owned by Vice Admiral John Richard Delap Tollemache (q.v.) but agreed to withdraw the counterclaims. This was probably the Daniel Hill who died in 1808, father of Daniel Hill the younger (q.v.), although to date no probate or will has been found for the elder man. There is some potential confusion in that Lee and Ledeatt were also described in the Register of Claims as executors of James Hill.
