The Rev. Joseph Hull was born in 1596 in Crewkerne,
Somersetshire, England. He was educated at St. Mary's Hall, Oxford,
receiving his B. A. Degree.
On 6 May 1635 he arrived at Boston, MA along with 104
others who would later be referred to as "Hulls Colony". Joseph
Hull married twice and had a total of twenty-one
The second generation in America was Joseph's son Samuel
Hull, Born ca 1649 in Piscataway, Middlesex Co., NJ, Died ca 1706.
He married Mary Manning on 16 Nov 1677 and they had six children.
They lived in both Maine and New Jersey along with settlers who's
background must have been similar.
The Hull family is then traced from New Jersey into
Anson County, North Carolina and Moses Hull, who was the fifth
generation in the New World. Moses was Born ca 1729 in New Jersey
and Died ca 1778 in North Carolina. His wife remains unknown.
