Among the early New England colonists there were five 
persons by the name of Hull, or Hulls, as it was then spelled, 
who are supposed to be brothers, and came from Derbyshire, 
England. Their names were John, George, Richard, Joseph 
and Robert. John Hulls was made freeman by the Gen- 
eral Court of Mass, in 1632; was Captain of the Artillery Co.; 
died in 1670. George Hulls, of Dorchester, Mass., was 
freeman in 1633; was representative to the Gen'l Assembly; 
moved to Connecticut and was Ass't Governor of that State 
in 1637. Richard Hulls was made a freeman in 1634 ; 
sold his house in Roxbury to Philip Sherman, in 1637; moved 
to New Haven, Conn., in 1639. Joseph Hulls of Hing- 
ham, was freeman in 1638; representative to Gen'l Assembly 
of Mass., in 1638-39. The town of Hull, Mass., is said to 
have been named after him. Robert Hulls, of Boston, 
was freeman in 1637; he died in 1666; his son John, was free- 
man in 1649; he was a goldsmith and a highly respected 
citizen of Boston; his children all died except Hannah, who 
married Judge Samuel Sewall, Chief Justice of the Province, 
in 1676. He (John) became Treasurer and master of the 
Mint, in 1652; he died in 1683, leaving a large estate; when 
Hannah was married, her father put her on the scales and 
balanced her weight with silver coin, for her dowry. A 
Josiah Hull, married Elizabeth Loomis, in 1641; she was 

daughter of Joseph Loomis Josiah was deputy to the Gen- 
eral Court, in 1659-60-62; he moved to Killing-worth, Conn., 
in 1662: was deputy from that town, in 1667; he died in 1675. 

In the Genealogy of the Loomis family, there appear the 
names of 1150 descendants of Josiah and Elizabeth Loomis 

There is a good deal of information about these families 
which is not noted in this record, the design being to compile 
a record of the descendants of Richard Hull only. 

The original intention was, to record only the lineal an- 
cestors of Rev. Leverett Hull, for the benefit of his descend- 
ants. So much data was obtained of the collateral lines, 
that it was determined to arrange in as compact a form as 
possible, all the facts learned about the various lines of 
Richard's descendants, in order to preserve the same, to 
assist any one among such descendants, who might wish to 
write a genealogy of the Hull Family. 

The Record though incomplete, represents a great deal of 
labor and study and is the result of extended examination of 
town histories, numerous family records and genealogies, and 
extensive correspondence with descendants of Richard and 
with town and church clerks in various parts of the country. 
Some of the parties corresponded with, have lived in Wal- 
lingford or Cheshire all their lives and have heard from their 
parents and grandparents, the family traditions prevailing in 
those towns. 

It has happened in several instances that different birth 
dates have been given by different authorities, for the same 

individual. In these cases the dates which have the prepond- 
erance of evidence are here given. 

The system of numbering is as follows : 

Beginning with Richard, the names are all numbered con- 
secutively, his oldest child being numbered 2 and so on. This 
consecutive number immediately precedes each name, and 
immediately preceding this consecutive number, appears the 
number of the father of that person, so that each line can be 
traced back to Richard by the numbers. 

The different families in each generation are separated by 
a single red line across the page. 

Milwaukee, August i3th, 1894. 


Richard Hull, of Derbyshire, England, was made 
freeman in Dorchester, Mass, in 1634. Was in Boston 
in 1637. Moved to New Haven in 1639, took the oath 
of fidelity there in 1644. Was representative to the 
General Court of Conn. He is on record in the New 
Haven colony as having sold six acres of upland to 
William Thompson in 1646. Made his will in August, 
1662, and died in September, 1662. His wife's name 
is not known. He moved to New Haven, "because he 
would not endure puritanism."

planter in Stratford in 1661, where he lived until 1668.

moved in the General Court at Hartford, to have the 
privilege of a plantation granted to the inhabitants 
of Pawgassett, there being twelve families settled 
there and as many more ready to settle. The General 
Court granted their motion. This plantation of Paw- 
gassett was named by the court, Derby, as some of 
these first settlers came from Derby a shire town of 
England, 127 miles from London. 

The original twelve settlers of Derby were Edward 
Wooster, Francis French, Stephen Pierson, John 
Hull, Joseph Hawkins, Samuel Riggs, Ephraim 
Smith, Abel Gunn, J. Johnson, Jabez Harger, Ebe- 
nezer Johnson and John Tibballs. 

In 1677, at a town meeting, the ist church was 
organized, and John Hull, John Bowers and Joseph 
Hawkins signed the petition. Abel Gunn and Joseph 
Hawkins were appointed to present the petition. A 
certificate was given these men as their authority, 
signed by John Hull and Sam'l Riggs. The petition 
was granted. 

In 1687, Dr. John Hull moved to Wallingford. The 
General Assembly granted him 700 acres of land in 
this town for services in King Phillip's war. He 
owned about 1500 acres of land in Wallingford. He 
was selectman of the town of Derby in 1677-80-83-87,

* The names of Richard's children appear on the records in the order 
yiven here, but when the copj- of Richard's will was obtained, Jeremiah 
was therein called the oldest. It was then too late to change his number,

had any), are entered in this Record.

34 105 Dr. Zephaniah, born August i5th, 1728 at Walling- 
ford, Conn., now Cheshire, on the land given to Dr. 
John Hullin 1687. He married at Wallingford. Hannah 
Doolittle in 1749.* They settled in Bethlehem, Conn. 
He was a physician and an intimate friend of Dr. Bel- 
lamy. Dr. Hull and his wife both died November loth, 
1760, of the "Great Sickness" and were buried in one 
grave. Two of their children died the same day - . 
Soon after these deaths a flock of quail flew over the 
garden and all fell to the grass; in a few minutes three 
arose and flew away, the rest died. It is a curious coin- 
cidence that only three of all the family who were sick 
at that time recovered. The sister of Mr. Chas. Hull 
Clarke, well remembers hearing her grandmother 
(Lydia Hull Clarke, daughter of Dr. Zephaniah) tell 

* Cothren's History of Woodbury and Davis' History of Walling-ford, 
both state that Zephaniah married Hannah Cook. Davis also says that 
Zephaniah married Hannah Doolittle, and still other authorities assert 
that Hannah Cook married, not Zephaniah. but Jeremiah Hull, The town 
>-t-i-i\ff of \Vallintrford, show that Zephaniah married Hannah Doolittle, 
and still stronger proof of this is found in the fact that Zephaniah's son 
Andrew, lived with Moses Doolittle and inherited the latters property, as 
hi-, trrandson, and lived there until he died and his descendants still live 
on this property, and they also state that Dr. Zephaniah married Hannah 


The following is a copy of an old family paper which was 
received too late to be bound in this book. This paper is 
another proof that Dr. Zephaniah married Hannah Doolittle. 

"A record of the children of Lieut. Moses Doolittle of 

Oldest son, Thomas Doolittle, born February r4th, 1730. 
Died November, 1760. Married to Lois Hull. Had three 
daughters: Lois, Lucy and Abigail. 

Oldest daughter, Hannah Doolittle, born November 7th, 
1732. Married to Dr. Zephaniah Hull, oldest son to Dr. John 
Hull and his wife Sarah. 

Second daughter, Eunice Doolittle, born October i7th, 
1734. Married David Hotchkiss, December 25th, 1752, by 
whom she had 13 children, 6 boys and 7 girls. 

Third daughter, Damaris Doolittle, born May 28th, 1736. 
Married to Benjamin Hall. 

Second son, Reuben Doolittle, born April i2th, 1738. Died 
November, 1760. 

Third son, Moses Doolittle, born February I4th, 1743. 
Died October, 1759, at Lake George, in the French war. 

Fourth daughter, Lydia Doolittle, born February 28th, 
1746. Married Jeremiah Arnold." 

The above was folded and endorsed as follows: "A Record 
of Moses Doolittles family, taken at Cheshire, June ist, 1808, 
by Titus Hull." 

this story. Dr. Zephaniah was a man of high char- 
acter and great influence, both, as a man and as a 
physician. Hannah, his wife, was born in 1731 and 
was a daughter of Moses Doolittle and Lydia Richard- 
son, his second wife. Moses was a son of Ebenezer 
Doolittle and Hannah Hall, his wife. Ebenezer was 
son of Abraham Doolittle and Abigail Moss, his wife. 
Abraham was in Massachusetts very early and in New 
Haven before 1642, and owned a house there. He 
took the freeman's oath in 1644, and was made chief 
executive officer of the county. He was chosen to 
superintend the new settlement (part of New Haven), 
which was afterwards called Wallingford. He was a 
member of the Vigilance committee, during King 
Phillip's war. His house was fortified by a picket-fort. 
He was deputy several times from New Haven and 
Wallingford to the General Court, was also selectman. 
He married in 1663, Abigail Moss. She died in 1710. 
He died in 1690. Ebenezer Doolittle was born in 
1672; married in 1697, Hannah Hall; they resided in 
Cheshire. He died in 1711. Moses was born in 1702 
and died in 1781. Hannah Hall, who married Ebenezer 
Doolittle, was born in 1673. She was a daughter of 
Capt. Samuel Hall and Hannah Walker, his wife. 
Capt. Samuel Hall was born in 1648; married in 1668; 
died in 1725. He was deputy to General Court, 1698, 
1700, 1701, 1705. In 1704 was appointed captain of 
the "Wallingford Train Band." This band took an 
active part in the old French and Indian wars. Sam'l 
was a large land holder in the vicinity of Meriden, 
Conn. Hannah (Walker) Hall was born in 1646, and 
was daughter of John and Grace Walker. Samuel 
Hall was son of John Hall and Jeanne Wollen, his 


wife. John Hall was born in England in 1605. He 
married Jeanne in 1641. He was one of the original 
proprietors of Wallingford and died there in 1676. 
He held many important civil and military positions. 
His son Thomas received fifty acres of land for his 
father's services in the Pequot war, 1637. Jeanne 
Wollen came from England with the Wilkin's family, 
who were relatives. She was of good family and well 
educated. The crest borne by her family is as follows: 
A demi lion, between its paws, a cushion tasseled. 
It is supposed that John Hall came to America in the 
ship "Griffin" in 1633. It is not positively known 
from what part of England he came, but every indi- 
cation points to Coventry, Warwick. There is a Hall 
family living there, many of whom have been physicians, 
and also many of the Wallingford Halls were physicians. 
Theodore Parsons Hall, states in his Hall Geneology, 
that he has seen at Stratford, on Avon, the seal ring 
with which Dr. John Hall, of that town, married Sus- 
anna Shakespeare and that both , Dr. John and Susanna, 
were buried by the side of the immortal William. The 
name was originally "De Halle" and was given to 
those who came from the city of Halle in Saxon}'. 
John Hall made his will in 1676. It was as follows : 
"The testimony of Samuel Street, Samuel Hall and 
Mary Hall sayeth, that about the time he fell sick, they 
heard him say and he said to them, that he doubted 
not of his wife's love and care of his children and

88 162 Lieut. Joseph, born in Derby in 1750; married for his 
second wife, widow Nichols, mother of Rev. Charles 
Nichols; Joseph entered the army in 1776, as Lieut, of 
Artillery; was taken prisoner at Fort Washington; is 
said to have shown great gallantry in the defense of 
this fort; he was not exchanged until 1778; after his 


exchange he again entered the army. In 1779 he was 
given command of a flotilla on Long Island Sound, 
consisting of several old whale boats, fitted out to 
annoy the enemy as opportunity offered. On one 
occasion a British armed schooner was lying in the 
sound; Joseph proposed to go out and take the schooner; 
that evening 20 men, under his command, embarked 
in a boat similar to those used in carrying wood the 
boat had the appearance of being loaded with wood- 
as they approached the schooner, the sentry on deck 
hailed Hull, who was steering; he answered the call 
but continued his course 'till quite near the schooner, 
when by a sudden movement, he ran close alongside; 
all hands sprang aboard the schooner; the British capt. 
aroused by the firing of the sentries, came on deck and 
was shot dead. The hatches were fastened down and 
the schooner conducted in triumph to jDerby. "This 
gallant soldier was the father of Commodore Isaac 
Hull. He engaged early in life in the West India 
trade and became familiar with a seaman's life as well 
as that of a farmer. During his most active career, the 
whale fishery was carried on in the Sound in open 
boats, manned by four or six oarsmen, a steersman 
and a harpooner. This was a most dangerous calling, 
requiring a high degree of skill and perfect drill and 
unity of action. In this school his son Isaac took his 
first lessons in seamanship. One day Isaac was enter- 
taining a party of ladies with a sail on the river, in one 
of his father's whale boats, when a sudden squall 
capsized the boat. By almost superhuman effort Isaac 
succeeded in saving the whole party of eight or ten 


Joseph's coolness and presence of mind as well as 
fearlessness is shown in the following anecdote: While 
on his way to New Haven, just as he came to the top 
of the hill in West Haven, he saw some British officers 
advancing towards him; turning in his saddle he 
motioned as if for his company to hasten, and riding 
forward, commanded the British to surrender, they 
supposing the enemy to be near at hand, delivered up 
their swords. 

88 163 Gen'l William, born in 1753 at Derby; entered Yale 
college when 15 years old and graduated in his 2oth 
year; was elected captain of a Derby militia company; 
he was preparing to join Col. Webb's regiment, when 
his father died, leaving him considerable property; he 
refused to take any of it, saying, "I want only my 
sword and uniform." He joined his regiment at once 
and marched to Cambridge. The next year the regi- 
ment took possession of Brooklyn Heights. Gen'l 
William was an intimate friend of Capt. Nathan Hale. 
At the personal request of Washington, Capt. Hull 
was made acting field officer during the battle of 
Trenton and was soon afterward promoted by Gen'l 
Washington, to be major of the 8th Mass. He was 
also engaged in the battle of Princeton and many of 
the most important battles of the war; was promoted 
very rapidly for bravery and effective service. He 
held many positions of trust after the war. In 1776, 
he was appointed Major-General of Massachusetts 
militia; in 1805, was appointed governor of Michigan 
and held that office until 1812, when he was appointed 
to command the Northwestern army. He was greatly 


censured for the surrender of Detroit and after a court 
martial, was condemned to death. The sentence was 
withdrawn by the President on account of " Gen'l 
Hull's brilliant services during the war of the Revo- 
lution." Gen'l Hull claimed, that the blame for the 
surrender did not attach to him, but to the authorities 
at Washington. His personal papers and effects had 
been lost or destroyed and he was not able to prove 
his assertions until twelve years later, when he ob- 
tained access to the papers and records of the War 
Department at Washington. These showed plainly 
that he had been the victim of a series of misunder- 
standings and complications arising from incompetency 
at Washington. He published an account of the cam- 
paign, viewed in the new light of these records, and 
was fully vindicated and received a tardy recognition 
from the government. Happily, he lived long enough 
to know that he had been completely exonerated, and 
to enjoy the consideration due to his valuable services. 
He married Sarah Fuller, of Newton, Mass. He 
died in 1825, November 25th. His wife died in 1826. 
She was born in 1759 and was a daughter of Judge 
Abraham Fuller and Sarah (Dyer) Fuller. Abraham 
was a son of Lieut. Joseph Fuller and Sarah (Jackson) 
Fuller. Lieut. Joseph was a son of Joseph Fuller, 
born in 1652, and Lydia (Jackson) Fuller. Lydia 
Jackson was daughter of Edward Jackson and Eliza- 
beth Newgate, his wife, a daughter of John Newgate, 
who was the son of Philip Newgate who married Joan 
de Hoo. The latter was a lineal descendant of Alex- 
ander de Hoo, the Crusader, who married Devorgilda, 
daughter of King Alexander II, of Scotland, a descend- 
ant of Alfred the Great of England.

his work in the face of the jealousy, prejudice and 
opposition engendered by the Puritans. The Revolu-
