Hill, Ann (?–1829)

On Saturday last, at half past one o'clock, to the great grief of her husband and a numerous circle of friends, Mrs. Hill, wife of Mr. Arthur Hill, of the Rose and Crown Tavern in Castlereagh Street. Mrs. Hill suffered five weeks’ illness, the latter part of which was extremely painful. Mrs. Hill was a person of singular activity. The whole care of the Tavern (formerly kept in King Street) fell upon her; and her business at that time, was the first in the country. Mr. Hill's being latterly deprived of his license, and the dilapidations of the servants, coupled as they were with Mrs. H's. unceasing activity night and day, at length preyed on her spirits, and laid her on a bed of sickness. That which intense attention to the gentlemen and the public who favoured her house with their patronage could not effect, a sense of unmerited rigour in being deprived of the license to her Tavern, accomplished. Her disease was complicated; but what finally terminated her existence was water on the brain.
