June.
My wife and I live in Scarborough, Yorkshire, England and we came across a tombstone in our local cemetery with the inscription below and wonder if it refers to the same Hills that you asked for information about and whether you have any other information regarding the loss of the 'Esther' or the Hill family. My wife is a member of the Friends of the Cemetery where the tombstone is and are compiling a history of the cemetery and would much appreciate any information.
Best Wishes

Captain Hill was my x2 great grandfather. Have some details about the last fateful voyage of the Esther outward bound from Miramichi NB to Southampton in 1838. Also more history of the Hills and the fleet of vessels they ran from Scarborough and their association with the founding of the P&O shipping line. Look forward to your contact to share information.
