Sarah Hill (1761-1848)

Sarah Hill was the daughter of Joseph Loxdale of Shrewsbury. She moved to Liverpool after her marriage to Revd. Thomas Hill (ordained into the Anglican ministry in about 1805) and was a prominent member of the Methodist Society. She was also a close friend and correspondent of John and Mary Fletcher of Madeley as well as several Wesleyan ministers.

She had been converted to Methodism at a young age despite some family opposition and was a generous giver to Methodist causes. She served as a class leader until a short time before her death which was a result of influenza.

Hill was resident for much of her adult life at Clarence Street in Liverpool.

Her sister Ann (1756-1812) was also a devout Methodist and the second wife of Dr Thomas Coke.
