George Gill (April 1, 1836 - November 24, 1901) was a Liverpool and London based schoolmaster and educational publisher active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Gill began his career as an educated and schoolmaster who, recognizing a dearth of good educational materials, began publishing in Liverpool in 1864. He transferred the company to London in 1879, becoming a limited company under the imprint of George Gill and Sons. In time the firm was taken over by his sons, George Reginald Gill (1862 - and Claude Edward Gill (August 30, 1872 - August 16, 1960). The firm published books and maps for schoolrooms. Advertisements for their 'Cartographic' appear in educational periodicals from 1885 to about 1901. Under the Gill family the educational publishing firm prospered until closing its doors in 1941. The firm was based at Minerva House, no. 12 Warwick lane, London.
