    • "The Hull Family in America": Joseph Loomis, the father-in-law of Lieut. Josiah Hull, before coming to New England, was a woolen draper of Brintree essex County, England, and was married in said county, June 30, 1614, to Mary White, daughter of Robert White and his wife Bridget Alger. He came to America in the ship "Susan and Ellen", leaving England April 1, 1638..... [1]
    • He was a woolen draper in Braintree, co Essex, Engl., and came in the ship "Susan and ellen," leaving London, april 11, 1638 and arriving at Boston, July 17, 163, as is proved by the deposition of Joseph Hills of Charlestown. (N.E. Reg., 30, p. 459.) He brought with him his sons, Joseph, John, Thomas, Samuel and Nathaniel, and daughters, Mary, Elizabeth, and another who m. Nicholas Olmstead. He is supposed to have come to Windsor, Conn. in company with rev. Ephraim Huit, who arrived there Au. 17, 1639. Feb 2, 1640, he was granted twenty-one acres of land adjoining the Farmington river, and his house was on what was known as the "the Island" because at every freshet it became temporarily an island. Stiles says "This Ancestral Home" has been in perpetual possession of his descendants coming down in an unbroken regular succession to Epaphras Loomis,who sold it to Rev. George Loomis, who in turn sold it to John Mason Loomis. He served twice on the jury of the Particular Court, March 2, 1642/3 and September, 1644. [2]

    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "Dawes-Gates Ancestral Lines":
      The parents of Joseph Loomis, of New England, were probably John and Agnes Loomis, of Braintree, co. Essex, England. If so, he was their only son and the executor of the father's will in May and June, 1619.......
      They remained in England until the spring of 1638 when, on april 11, with their eight children, they embarked at Maldon (the nearest seaport to Braintree) on the "Susan and Ellen" on which their goods also came and arrived in Boston on July 17, following. It is theorized that they spent their first year in this country at Dorchester though proof of that opinion has not yet been found, but in the summer and fall of 1639 the family removed overland to Windsor, Connecticut, probably in the company with the Reverend Ephraim Huet who arried there August 17, 1639.......
      Joseph served on a jury on March 2, 1642, and on another in company with NATHANIEL FOOTE in September 1644. On January 6, 1650, he was sued by William Buell for trespass and for damage to the extent of seven bushels of corn; one may infer that his stock got away from him...
