|4. ||Cornelius HULL was born 9 Apr 1628, Crewkerne, Somerset, England (son of George HULL and Thomasin MITCHELL); died Sep 1695, Fairfield, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA. |
"The Hull Family in America":....was married Nov. 19, 1653, to Rebecca Jones, 16--1696, daughter of Rev, John Jones and his wife Sarah.
Mr. Jone was born in Wales and ordained in England. He came to America on the ship "Defence" in 1635, and on April 6, 1637, was reordained and made pastor of the church at Concord, Mass. In September, 1644, he migrated with a considerable number of his Concord parishioners to Fairfield, Conn., and became the first pastor of the church at that place. When, in 1653, Cornelius Hull was married to the daughter of pastor Jones the town authorities of Fairfield immediately granted him a three acre town lot, to which his father added an adjoining or near by tract, containing 40 acres. Like his honored father he was a surveyor as well as husbandman, and early in his married life began adding to his landed estate, and was soon recognized as a man of substance and a prominent citizen. He was chosen deputy to the General Court in 1656, 1660, 1662 and 1667. In 1661 he was appointed Lieutenant for Fairfield County, and in 1675 was made Lieutenant of "The Hon. Major Threat's Life Guards," the 'crack corps" of the Connecticut soldiery of that period.....

|8. ||George HULL was born 1590 (son of Thomas HULL and Joane PESON); died 1659. |
"The Hull Family in America": George Hull, 1590-1659, surveyor, Indian Trader, magistrate, statesman and founder of a prominent branch of the Hull family in America, the son of Thomas and Joane Peson Hull, of Crewkerne, Somersetshire, England. On August 17, 1614 as shown by the original parish records of the ancient church at Crewkerne village, he was married to Thamzen (Thomasene) Michell, daughter of Robert Michell, a well-do-do- yeoman of Stockland, in the adjoining shire of Dorset. Stockland is about six miles distant from the village of Crewkerne, at or near which the ancestral home of the Hulls was situated, and it was probably included within the bounds of Crewkerne parish. ......
William and Joseph Hull, the oldest and youngest of the brothers of George Hull, were graduates of St. Mary's Hall, Oxford, and ministers of the Church of England. William, who was vicar of Colyton in Devonshire, died childless in 1627, leaving a will in which he names his brothers George, John, and Joseph, also Marie (Mary), daughter of his brother George, and Johanna, daughter of his brother Joseph.
George Hull was about forty years of age when he left England, and so far as is known, land surveying was not only his profession but his principal avocation while he remained there.
On March 30th, 1629-30, he sailed fro Plymouth, England, with a noted company of adventurers which included Ludlow, Mason, Underhill, Southcote, maverick and Warham, all of whom became men of marked prominence in either the civil, military or ecclesiastical affairs of New England. The record of baptism of his son Joshua at Crewkerne, seven and a half months after his departure suggests the probability that he sailed unaccompanied by his family and at a late date after he had "spied out the land," he either returned for or was joined by them.
No record of place or date of death of Thomasene Michell Hull has been discovered, but that she died previous to 1655 is shown by the recorded fact that about that date George Hull was married to Sarah, widow of David Phipin, Esq., of Boston.
As previously stated George Hull came to New England in 1629-30. After spending a short time in Boston, he with other colonists settled the town of Dorchester, the records of which show that he was a prominent member of its first board of selectmen, and its representative in the first general court of Massachusetts Bay Colony held May 14, 1634.
In 1636 he moved to Windsor, Conn., of which and the adjoining town of Wethersfield, he made official surveys, receiving in compensation for his service, awards of choice town lots. The records of Windsor contain divers records showing that he was one of the "first comers" and prominent grantees of that town, which he was chosen to represent in the general court of Connecticut.....
