    Notes 
    • The Hull family was prominent in early New England history. The first of the name in this country was the Rev. Joseph Hull, who was born in Crewkerne, co. Somerset, England, the son of Thomas and Joanna (Peson) Hull. He matriculated at St. Mary's Hall, Oxford, 22 May 1612, as a pleb aged 17 years, and took his B.A. degree 14 Nov. 1614. After his graduation from Oxford he was teacher and curate at Colyton, co. Devon, and later rector of Northleigh, in the Exeter diocese, from 1621-1632. Hull was an Episcopalian, with moderate Puritan views, and, in 1635, he emigrated to New England and landed in Boston. That same year he was admitted a Freeman of the Massachusetts Colony, and became the minister at Weymouth, Mass. As a result of his leanings to Episcopacy, he fell into trouble with the Massachusetts authorities and removed to the more tolerant atmosphere of Barnstable in Plymouth Colony in 1639, but, becoming again involved in controversy here, he removed in 1643 to York, in the non-Puritan Province of Sir Ferdinando Gorges in Maine. He preached for some years at York but returned to England, leaving his family in Maine. In 1652 he became minister at Launceston in Cornwall and later at Buryan in that county. On the Restoration in 1662 he was ejected, because of his Puritan leanings, from his living and returned to New England. After his return he preached at Oyster River (Durham, N. H.) and the Isles of Shoals, where he died in 1665, leaving a numerous family. Several of his sons became Quakers and two of them, Hopewell and Samuel, removed to the Quaker settlement at Piscataway, N. J.
