The family of Arthur Tidman Gill

The family of Arthur Tidman Gill

The Reverend Arthur Tidman Gill (1848–1933) was a minister of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion (a Calvinist Methodist church) and later of the Church of England. He married Cicely Rose King, and they had 13 children, 11 of them surviving into adulthood. In 1897 after Rev Gill was ordained into the Church of England, the family moved to Chichester, and then in 1899 to Bognor. Rev Gill was then appointed vicar in West Wittering from 1904 to 1930. His family included 5 sons who served in WW1, amongst them the sculptor Eric Gill. Another son was designer/architect MacDonald (Max) Gill who spent the war years on a farm project in Dorset. Both Eric and Max also designed a number of war memorials. Max isn't on Lives (yet) but his biography is available at http://www.macdonaldgill.com/content/biography . Daughter Margaret also served, as a V.A.D. in a hospital.
