Caleb Hill, the son of Allen Hill, a parchment maker of Chippenham, Wiltshire, was apprenticed to Thomas Man [Mann], citizen and 'Free Imbroiderer' and silversmith [see Grimwade 1987, 2829-31] of London in 1720. Caleb's mother, Ann Hill, presumably a widow, had entered her mark with the Goldsmiths' Company in 1726. It would seem that Caleb, who entered his mark in September 1728, was dead by the end of 1734. He had married Ann Jefferys by licence in September 1729 and, whereas Grimwade assumed that his mother re-entered a mark thereafter, it is more likely that his mother was already dead and that his widow entered her mark in 1734/35. The address in Albermarle street, Clerkenwell is either the same or adjacent to that of Caleb Hill's master, Thomas Mann.
