Edward Hill, an accountant and auditor, played once for Glamorgan in 1911, appearing in the Minor County Chmapionship match against Carmarthenshire at Llanelli.

His selection for the game at Stradey Park followed a series of decent batting performances for Cardiff CC, and with fewer professionals turning out for the cash-strapped club, Edward had his chance to impress. His father was a distant cousin of the Hill family of Rookwood House, and ran a successful business at Bristol Docks importing mahogany. Through his family connections, he also played cricket for Fairwater, as well as playing rugby for Cardiff and Somerset.

Edward initially entered the office of Messrs Clarke and Dovey, rising to the position of head of accountancy, before in 1907 moving to work in partnership with Sidney Clutterbuck, OBE prior to opening his own practice in High Street, close to the office block where Glamorgan had their administrative base.
