The Reverend George Hill, historian and poet, was educated at the Royal Belfast Academical Institution and at Queen’s College, Belfast. He was ordained to the remonstrant congregation of Ballymoney in September 1834. In 1837 he was called to Crumlin, where he remained until 1850, when he was appointed librarian of Queen's College. During his 30 years in the post he built up the nucleus of the present library.
