Hill

HILL, a hamlet, in the parish of Sutton-Coldfield, union of Aston, locally in the Birmingham division of the hundred of Hemlingford, N. division of the county of Warwick, 2 miles (N. by W.) from Sutton-Coldfield; containing 1355 inhabitants. This place is situated on the road from Sutton to Lichfield; the surface is undulated, the soil gravelly, and the scenery picturesque. A church, dedicated to St. James, was erected in 1835, at a cost of about £1600, raised by subscription, aided by a grant from the Incorporated Society; it is a neat edifice, with a square tower. The living is in the gift of the Rector. The income of the incumbent is £40, with the addition of £20 derived from pew-rents; a glebe-house adjoins the church. There is a place of worship for dissenters; and two schools are supported by the corporation of SuttonColdfield.
