Eustace Tickell Hill (1869–1933) was a cricketer who made two first-class appearances for Somerset. The older brother of Vernon Hill, he first appeared for Somerset during their successful 1890 season.[1] In a season in which Somerset remained undefeated against other county sides, Hill scored 20 and 0 batting at number five in a two run victory over Hampshire.[2] In 1892, he made two appearances against Lord Hawke's XI, playing one match for Madras Presidency and one for Bangalore and District.[1] He made a further appearance for Madras Presidency the following December, playing against Parsees. He was back in England in July 1894, when he played for Somerset Club and Ground against Weston-super-Mare at the County Ground, Taunton, making a duck.[3] His first-class debut came four years later, appearing alongside his brother for Somerset in the University Match against Oxford University., making 31 and 17 batting from number eight.[4] His second, and final, first-class match was a repeat of his debut, playing Oxford University at the University Parks, Oxford in 1901. Coming in at number nine, after his brother had fallen for a duck, Hill also failed to score in the first-innings, but added 22 in the second.[5]
