Short Biography

     Joe was born about March 1868 in Rockhampton. His father died when he was 10 years old, and moved to Sydney when he was 20. At was at this his time his mother was admitted to an insane asylum.

Nothing certain is known of him until he married Maria Bourke in Sydney in 1901 at the age of 32. However, in this year he was working as an accountant, so presumably in the intervening years he had secured a good education and had other work. He was employed by the NSW Mont de Piete Deposit and Investment Company and remained with them for the next thirty years.

Joe and Maria had three sons, the eldest of which died young. They became more prosperous and lived in Mosman and finally Manly, where for a number of years they lived next to Maria's brother and his family.

Joe's mother died in 1916, stil at the asylum.

Maria died in 1931, and Joe died a little over a year later at the age of 65, still employed by the Mont de Piete - but now their General Manager.

Joseph was born circa March 1868 at Rockhampton, Queensland. Joseph's birth was apparently not registered.1,2 He was the son of Henry Hugh Hill and Maria Holmes. His common name was Joe. Joseph William Hill was school attendance on 6 September 1877.3

His father died 26 July 1878. He was aged about 10 when this happened. He perhaps became a member of the Stanwell State School Committee on 8 March 1886 at Stanwell near Rockhampton, Queensland.4 He moved to New South Wales circa January 1888.5

On 13 February 1888 Maria was admitted as insane. Within 2 months Maria was at Goodna Insane Asylum, in Brisbane.6 Joseph William Hill was perhaps a passenger from Rockhampton to Melbourne on 3 July 1888.7 Joseph lived with his aunt Jane Holmes in 1901 at at 225 Forbes St. in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst. Also in the house was her sister's son Joseph.8

He married Mary Alberta MacCallum Bourke, a publican's daughter, daughter of Michael Bourke and Susannah Alletta Nicholson, in a Church of England ceremony at St. Peter's on Monday, 11 February 1901 at the Sydney suburb of Wooloomooloo. Witnesses to the wedding were Susan Georgina Gormon Bourke.9

Joseph and Mary lived circa March 1902 at at 'Thalaba' Muston Street in the Sydney suburb of Mosman. This house was near the corner of Raglan Street, just off Military Road. Joe and his young family were to stay there for about five years before apparently moving to Rockdale.10 Joseph and Mary Alberta MacCallum Bourke, aged 23 became the parents of Argyle Hill in April 1902 at the Sydney suburb of Mosman. However, he died soon after.10 Joseph provided information on the death of his son Argyle Hill, on 24 May 1902, at Mosman. This cause of death means a short loss of consciousness due to a drop in blood pressure that was part of a general wasting away. From the first, Argyle must have been a weak baby, most likely due to being premature..10,11 Joseph William Hill witnessed his son Argyle Hill's burial on 25 May 1902 St. Thomas' Church of England at North Sydney.10 Joseph and Mary Alberta MacCallum Bourke, aged 26 became the parents of their second son John Hill on Wednesday, 20 December 1905 at at 'Thalaba' Muston St. in the Sydney suburb of Mosman.12,13

Joe and Mary placed an advertisment in the paper on Thursday, 10 January 1907 offering 'the Whole of his ATTRACTIVE MODERN FURNITURE and HOUSEHOLD APPOINTMENTS' as he was 'relinquishing housekeeping'. It isn't known why they did this, but it may have been related to the health of her mother.14,15 Joseph provided information on the death of his mother-in-law Susannah Alletta Nicholson, on 31 August 1907, at the Sydney suburb of Rockdale. Susannah had been ill for ten weeks before her death. Cancer was also to claim her youngest daughter, Susie, at the age of forty..16 Joseph and Mary lived in 1908 at at 'Woniora' Addison Road in the Sydney suburb of Manly. They only stayed there a short time before moving to 51 Wood Street, about 650 metres away. For the rest of their time in Manly they gave their houses the name 'Woniora'.17,18 Joseph and Mary Alberta MacCallum Bourke became the parents of Donald Nicholson Hill in 1911.19,20 Joseph and Mary lived in 1912 at at 'Woniora', 78 Osbourne Road in the Sydney suburb of Manly. This extended family, which at that time included Mary's sister Susie until she moved to London, were to live in this house until about 1917, when they moved to 58 (now 30) Addison Road, next door to Mary's older brother Don on one side, and their friends the Gahan's on the other. Joe and Mary were to stay in this house for the rest of their lives.21

September 1913 was a pretty interesting time to be in Manly, in that there were 300 smallpox patients at the quarantine station, five of whom escaped for the day in a contagious state. Just a month later, the Australian fleet made it's first entrance to Sydney Harbour with the new battlecruiser HMAS Australia in the lead. Joseph was employed as acting general manager of the NSW Mont de Piete Deposit and Investment Company on 14 July 1914.22

His mother died 13 April 1916 at the approximate age of 91. He was aged approximately 48; his mother had been in a Sydney mental institution for a number of years and died there.23 A photograph was taken of the Bourke and Hill houses in at 32 and 30 Addison Street, Manly c.1918.

On Friday, 9 August 1918 Joe and Mary attended a euchre party in the Oxford Hall, in Sydney, in support of St. Margaret's, attended by Don and Ivy Bourke with many others attending. It was just one of a number of events organised by Don and or Ivy in support of St. Margarets that they attended.24,25

It is possible that it is Joseph being alluded to when the Incorporated Institute of Accountants, Commonwealth of Australia (N.S.W. Branch) announced that a J.W. Hill had been successful in the Final Accounts and Auditing section. However, Joe had been working as an accountant for some time and was aged 51.26

Donald Hugh Aloysius Bourke and Ivy Pearl Owens and his sister Mary and their neighbour Frank Gahan were involved in organising the Blossom dance and euchre party at at Paddington Town Hall in the Sydney suburb of Paddington on Tuesday, 14 October 1919 in aid of St. Margaret's. It seems Mary's husband Joe was not involved in the organising but attended.27,28 Joseph was employed as General Manger, a position he held until his death at age 65. at Sydney on 22 January 1920.29,30,31

Mary and Joseph were hosted at the the Wentworth Cafe, in Sydney, by Mary's brother Don and his wife Ivy on Monday, 17 May 1920 and again on Friday of the same week.32

Joe and Mary visited at Brighton Hotel in the Sydney suburb of Brighton-Le-Sands in February 1921 along with Mary's brother Don and Don's wife Ivy, as well as members of Ivy's family.33 On Tuesday, 2 August 1921 Mary Alberta MacCallum Bourke and Ivy Pearl Owens organised a dinner-dance at Sydney in aid of St. Margaret's; it's likely their husbands also attended.34

Joseph William Hill and Mary Alberta MacCallum Bourke attended a kimino dance on Wednesday, 6 September 1922; apparently, Joseph was one of a number of people who 'entertained' at the function.35 Joe and Mary as well as Donald and Ivy (and a number of others) were entertained at a 'gay dinner dance' at Sydney hosted by Sister Kerven on Tuesday, 5 February 1924.36

Joseph and Mary hosted a joint birthday party for her brother Don and good friend Val Boyle at The Ambassadors, in Sydney, on Thursday, 14 February 1924. Other attendees included Mary's brother Gyle and his wife, friends Carl and Ivy Nicholson, and their next-door neighbors the Gahans.37 Joe and Mary, her brother Don and his wife Ivy, and their brother Gyle and his wife Daisy attended a Fools' Cap Ball at Sydney on 3 April 1924.38

On Saturday, 7 June 1924 Mary's younger sister Susan died of cancer, no doubt a blow for this tight-knit family.39 Joseph and Mary lived in 1925 at at 'Woniora' 58 (now 30) Addison Road in the Sydney suburb of Manly. They also had the telephone connected (Manly 1013), as had the Bourke's next door.40,41

Joseph William Hill and Ivy Pearl Owens were among a large number of people that attended a cabaret at Sydney in aid of St. Margaret's on Thursday, 30 June 1927.42

Joseph was one of sixteen men that represented NSW in bowls in Melbourne from the last days of 1927 through the New Year. At least one of Joseph's matches was played at Glenhuntly.43,44,45

Joseph represented Manly on Saturday, 8 June 1929 in the 'Champion of Champions' bowls competition, but lost in one of the final rounds.46

In August 1929 Joseph William Hill was a member of the NSW team that compteted at bowls in Brisbane against a Queensland team.47,48 His oldest son John married Margery Jean Smith at Sydney Church of England Grammar Chapel on Saturday, 2 November 1929 at North Sydney.49

However, shortly after their wedding their son Geoffrey and his new wife moved to Melbourne.

His wife Mary died 27 November 1931 at the age of 52, leaving him a widower. Mary had been admitted to Mount St. Margaret's hospital in Ryde in August and died of cardiac failure four months later.50 Joseph provided information on the death of his wife Mary Alberta MacCallum Bourke, on 28 November 1931, at St. Margaret's Hospital for Women, in Sydney. It is perhaps fitting that she died at the hospital she had been so active in supporting.50,51 By 1933, Donald had returned home to live with his father Joe.52

A month before his death, Joseph was still working as general manager at the Mont de Piete.31

Joseph died on 25 February 1933 at Manly. The cause of death was two-fold. Enlargement of the prostate gland was the main reason, but also there was a heart problem associated with the mitral valve. Interestingly, his son John had the name of his grandfather wrong and knew no other details of him.1 His body was interred at Church of England section of the general cemetery on 25 February 1933 at the Sydney suburb of Manly. His wife was buried in the same plot (section J.148).1,53

Joseph's estate was up for sale within 3 weeks of his death, including on 14 March 1933:
"Glass China and Electroplate, Axminster and Wilton Pile Carpets, The Complete Furnishings of Dining room and Four Bedrooms, in Polished Oak, Maple, Tasmanian Blackwood, In modern designs, Player Pianoforte Marqui Ampico by Haines Bros., New York, Together with Stool, Music roll Cabinet and Music Rolls. This very fine full-toned Instrument in Polished Walnut Case is in excellent order, and should appeal to musicians. Aeolian Vocalion Talking Machine and Records. Valuable Walnut Bracket Clock with true Westminster Chimes. Very Fine Oak Card Table, Reversible top on four carved claw feet, Singer Drophead Sewing Machine, In Carved Oak Cabinet, Luxurious Easy Chairs, Kitchen and Laundry Requisites."54



Joseph's will was probated on 16 May 1933. As there was no will, Joseph's sons Jack and Don had the estate paid into trust with the Permanent Trustee Company of NSW. The estate was valued at £763.14.0. There was some suggestion that Joe had nearly gone bankrupt earlier in his life. Don continued to live in the Addison Street house for a couple of years after the death of his father..55,56
