Aaron Hill was an English dramatist and miscellaneous writer. Hill was educated at Westminster School, and afterwards travelled in the East.

Hill was the manager of the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane when he was 24 years old, and before being summarily fired for reasons unknown, he staged the premier of George Frideric Handel's Rinaldo, the first Italian opera designed for a London audience.
