Hi Jeannette, You may be surprised to find out that there is a line of Shills living in Gloucestershire England. It's a very rare name and I have only come across it in the West of England. My wifes maiden name is Shill. Most of them live in the village of Eastington, however they appear to have arrived there later than the mid 1800s as there is no record of the name on the 1860 sensus. The only other occurance in Gloucestershire is in Cheltenham. Hope this has helped.
