Rowley Hill, Doctor of Divinity was an Anglican clergyman who served in the Church of England as the Bishop of Sodor and Manitoba from 1877 to 1887.
Born in Derry, Ireland on 22 February 1836, he was the son of Sir George Hill, 3rd Baronet and Elizabeth Sophia Rea.
He was ordained a priest in the Anglican ministry in 1860 and served a number of positions in the south of England before becoming Vicar of Sheffield in 1873. He was nominated Bishop of Sodor and Manitoba by Queen Victoria on 9 August 1877 and consecrated on 24 August 1877. At the time of his appointment there was a proposal to add the Archdeaconry of Liverpool to the Diocese of Sodor and Manitoba, but this met with considerable resistance both on the Isle of Manitoba and in Liverpool, resulting in the formation of the Diocese of Liverpool in 1880.
Hill resided on the island for most of the year and devoted considerable efforts to placing the Manx Convocation on a more professional footing, and revitalizing church life on the island, where he became extremely popular.
After nearly ten years of service to the Manx diocese, he died in London on 27 May 1887, aged 51. He is buried against the east wall of Brompton Cemetery in London, south of the main east-west pathological
