The Genealogy of the Hall Family from Bristol.

John Hall of Dundry, Somerset. Born ca. 1635. His relationship to his son, as shewn herein, is unproven.

Thomas Hall. Born Chew Magna, Somerset ca. 1660.   Evidence that he was father to John Hall is circumstantial, not 'proven'. 

John Hall Born about 1686. Married to Elizabeth Shewring (born about 1680), daughter of Daniel Shewring and Elizabeth Freind.  Her identity has been derived by Hazlehurst Beezer from the will, dated 1741, of her son George Hall, and confirmed from her father's own will. 


George Hall. Born 1st June 1708. Will signed Bristol 2nd December 1740 and proved 28th July 1741.   


John Hall. Baptised 5th January 1710 (Gregorian). Died Stokes Croft, Bristol 16th October 1784. Grocer of the city of Bristol. Apprenticed 1724 to William Salmon, Grocer. Freeman of the city of Bristol 13th January 1731. Will dated 5th February 1782 and proved 16th February 1786. He built the Hall family vault at Lewin's Mead burial ground, Brunswick Square, Bristol (destroyed by city planners 1982): John Hall was the first of many family members to be buried there. Married ca. 1734 Bristol Hannah Abbott. Marriage settlement deed dated 18th September 1734.   


Robert Hall. Born 12th November 1735 about 1.33 pm. Baptised Lewin's Mead, Bristol 1st December 1735. Died Bristol 6th February 1800. Woollen draper. Became a burgess of Bristol 13th January 1757. One of the four executors under his father's will. Married Christchurch, Bristol 20th August 1761 Mary Webb (born during or before 1740, died 28th March 1776). She was daughter to Edward Webb, watchmaker.


George Webb Hall. Baptised 15th April 1765. Died about 22nd April 1824. Will (short and genealogically uninformative) dated 14th February 1824 and proved 1st April 1824. Farmer, solicitor and leading anti Corn Laws protester. Ian Anderson writes "In 1802 George Webb Hall of Sneed Park, Bristol, invested GBP 5,000 in a flock of 400 pure merino sheep and crossed them with Rylands with excellent results. The idea was not to supersede the use of Spanish [i.e. Merino type] wool but to counteract the spirit of monopoly which prevailed in the trade and in case relations with Spain were broken off".   A prominent and energetic Bristol citizen, he also "turned the first sod to begin the construction of the project of making Bristol a non tidal port, on the 1 May 1803. The day the project was completed, in 1809, a huge feast was thrown with two roast oxen, a mountain of potatoes, six hundred weight of plum pudding and a gallon of slingo (strong beer) each. The press gang had to be called to quell the resulting fighting."
Later he became Chairman Agricultural Associations in Great Britain. GWH died, according to a newspaper report dated 11 March 1824,  of a head injury received when he fell off a horse. It seems he survived after that accident for about three weeks, though the fact that he had drawn up his will a few weeks earlier suggests that he may already have been unwell. Married St Nicholas, Bristol 14th April 1792 Maria Gresley (born 1767: died 28th September 1825), eldest daughter of John and Maria Gresley.

3. George Webb Hall. Born Abbot's Leigh, Bristol 28th August 1796. Died (unm) Sneed Park 3rd December 1843. Will signed 13th November 1836 and proved by the oath of his executor and brother John Robert Hall 13th January 1844. He took over the management of his father's farm in 1824 and fiercely advocated the merits of the Merino sheep type. However, possibly on account of a distant volcanic eruption, the English climate was harsh in the 1820s, and he was finally forced to switch to a hardier sheep breed. His will stipulates he be buried at Lewin's Mead congregation's burial ground.

Married Harriet Thompson (born 1798, died 1st August 1885) The excellent Walkabout Travel website includes the following: "George Hall Peppin and his two sons were experienced English sheep breeders who settled at ... Wanganella station [near Deniliquin, NSW] in 1858. Dissatisfied with the yield and quality of wool from the merino, they channelled their efforts into developing a new breed that was better adapted to Australian conditions, larger of frame and able to yield a greatly improved quality and quantity of wool. Their successes constitute the foundation of Australia's reputation as a quality wool exporter. Peppin sheep now predominate among the flocks of South Africa, New Zealand and South America and 60-85 % of Australian merinos have Wanganella blood." It has been alleged that he emigrated in order to get away from his creditors in England.

John Abbott Hall. Born 30th June 1741. Baptised Bristol 16th July 1741. Died 1788. Grocer. He may have suffered from ill health. Probably emigrated ca. 1760. Joseph Johnson writes of the three brothers George Abbott Hall, Daniel Hall and John Hall that "they were natives of Bristol, in England, relatives of General Gadsden; all engaged in mercantile pursuits, and all firm patriots. John Hall removed to Georgia, and left a family there" (Page 32 "Traditions and Reminiscences" by J Johnson). However, the time of his death in 1788 it appears, from his will, that John was out of contact with any surviving stateside family, and living at Overton on the Gower Peninsular (south Wales), a short boat trip across the Bristol channel.

Nathanial Hall. Born 9th June 1747. Baptised Bristol 26th June 1747. Died Nassau, Bahamas 8th July 1807. Hazlehurst Beezer writes, "While his brothers were all involved on the patriot side in the revolution, Nathaniel, 120 miles to the south, in Savannah, was Pay Master General of the Tory government of Georgia. Georgia was the only state to have a Tory government [which] lasted about a year before [Nathaniel] found himself on the wrong side. He then went to Jamaica and eventually Nassau. At about the same time that George Abbott Hall was becoming Collector of Customs for SC, his brother was doing the same in Nassau. Nathaniel married well into a patriot family with connections to Lois Hall [Lois Matthewes, wife to George Abbott Hall] 's family. His will indicates no children and he leaves money to all his nieces and nephews, indicating that there was no alienation between the brothers over politics." Married Georgia 19th August 1774 Anne Gibbons (died Nassau 16th February 1817), daughter of Joseph Gibbons.

Daniel Hall. Born Bristol 22nd March 1750 (Gregorian). Died Charleston 6th April 1811. Buried St Michael's. First went to SC possibly as early as 1760. He fought on the Patriotic side in the Revolutionary War.  His father's will bequeaths Daniel's share of the family inheritance not to Daniel but to his wife probably, according to Hazlehurst Beezer, to minimize the risk that Daniel's portion might be forfeited to creditors.   The war was hugely disruptive of trade, and at the time when the will was written Daniel seems to have been in financial difficulties, from which it appears he subsequently recovered.  (Also, wholesale confiscations of mercantile assets were a British tactic in wartime Charleston, including an incident involving 180 barrels of rice then in the possession of Daniel Hall.)  Married St Philip's, Charleston 23rd February 1775 Susannah H Matthews (born 22nd February 1758, died Charleston 26th October 1846, buried St Michael's), daughter of William Mathewes by his second wife, Edith Stanyarne. G S Dickerman charmingly reports an encounter between Susannah and a British guard during the  War: "Mrs Daniel Hall, having obtained permission to pay a visit to her mother at John's Island, was on the point of going when an officer demanded the key to her trunk. "What do you expect to find there?" she asked. "I seek for treason," was the reply. "You may save yourself the trouble of search then," said Mrs Hall; "you may find a plenty of it at my tongue's end."".

This genealogy is not intended to be comprehensive.  (Previously omitted branches may nonetheless be added in response to expressions of interest.)   Therefore the generation indicator mark (e.g.  (A), (i)  or whatever) does not necessarily indicate the chronological position of a child's birth date in relation to those of siblings.

The starting point for these data is inherited family records, collected and collated by Eduardo Haviland Hillman 1874 - 1947.  Large amounts of information, genealogical wisdom, and inspiration, in support of the information included here, have also been received from living kinsfolk (and others) to whom the compiler is hugely grateful.  These generous folks include the late Ian Anderson, Hazlehurst Beezer (HB), Brice Clagett, Bruce Elder, Bill Fenn, Bet Girardeau, Anne Hanson, Richard Hall, Tudor and Kathleen Hall, Marc Hillman,Terry Hockley, Bill Houseman, Margaret McLauchlan, Robyn Newman, Jack Richards, Lynn van Rooijen, John Schneider,  Peter Delley, Ian Timus, Debra West, Margaret Winmill, and Amy Hedrick who runs the Glynn Co., GA web pageResidual errors are, of course, the compiler's own responsibility, but he does not currently know just where they have persisted. Corrections, especially where sourced, are therefore always welcome.

The compiler pays particular tribute to the genealogical research work of Ian William Anderson 1920 - 2002 of New South Wales. Ian's own web site was for several years a mine of information on this branch of Hall descendants. Unfortunately, following Ian's death his own website is no longer online: we are grateful to his step son for endorsing our own view that Ian would be pleased to see some of his work perpetuated, as herein. We also believe that the core of Ian's work was uploaded by him to Rootsweb, and may still be incorporated there in the WorldConnect database.  

Michael Brandon-Jones is currently progressing a scholarly study of George Webb Hall 1765 - 1824 and has been generous in sharing fruits of his researches.   His transcription of a sheet probably from the family bible of John Hall 1708 - 1784 (and maintained by some members of subsequent generations of the family in England) proved particularly informative.   His insights have, however, been wide ranging, so highlighting just one aspect of his help does understate the extent of his contribution, which has also included supplying large amounts of independent corroboration from primary sources.

Robyn Newman has written 'Lines from Central' about the New Zealand branch of the Rev. Waldron's descendants: she plans a second publication about members of the Rev. William Waldron's family who lived in southern England, in Devon, Somerset and Wiltshire.

On the stateside aspects of this family, the most comprehensive of the relevant published sources identified is, 'House of Plant' by George Sherwood Dickerman, published 1900, and noteworthy especially  for some of the engaging anecdotal elements appearing in the main text and appendices. Aspects of the detail in that volume nonetheless need to be viewed with caution.  Reference has also been made to "Traditions and Reminiscences of the American Revolution" by Joseph Johnson.  Johnson was born 1774:  his father, William Johnson, was an associate of George Abbott Hall 1737 - 1791.

The inclusion, as early as the 1740s, of middle names in English language names - as here in 'George Abbott Hall' and 'John Abbott Hall'  - is unusual at least outside the European royal families:  it might be assumed that several members of the earlier generations recorded herein received the middle name Abbott only retrospectively.   However, as HB points out, George Abbott Hall and John Abbott Hall both had the middle name 'Abbott' included in their baptismal record: subsequently that middle name repeatedly turns up during their lifetimes (eg in various documents signed by George Abbott Hall and in John Ab. Hall's inclusion as a member of  the committee to enforce the nonimportation plan in 1769 - according to " History of South Carolina Under the Royal Government" by Edward McCrady).   Use of the 'Abbott' middle name, denoting (presumably) a wish to highlight Hall family connection to Hannah Abbott's family, is no doubt significant. Insights as to why that should be will be gratefully received.
