Rev. George Hill was born in 1810 and passed away in 1900. His formal training and pursuit of the history of Antrim made him its primer historian. His classic work, published in 1876, was

His in-depth knowledge about the families of the Glens and Route and his ability to write this into a readable history make his works must have classics.
