Gill’s parents belonged to English Presbyterian families which had become Unitarian in their doctrine.
He was educated at King Edward VI Grammar School under Dr. Jeune (later Bishop of Peterborough).
He left the school in 1838, and would have gone to Oxford, but was prevented by his hereditary Unitarianism (long since given up), which forbade subscription to the Articles of the Church of England then required for entrance to the University.
This constrained him to lead the life of an isolated student, in which he gave himself chiefly to historical and theological subjects. He wrote over 200 hymns total.
