He was baptized at Hingham, Mass., Mar. 2.2, 1639, by Rev.

Dover to one John Rand, and removed to Piscataqua, Middlesex
Co., N. J., where he had previously purchased 498 acres of land.
In the year last named he was granted a license to keep a tavern
in said New Piscataqua. It is said that the business of hotel keep-
ing then established by him was carried on continuously under the
Hull name for nearly two hundred years. The records show
numerous transfers of land to and from him.

Joseph Hull, and his wife Agnes, was married about 1672 to Han-
nah .femside, daughter of John Fernside and his wife Elizabeth
Stan. Before Dec. 24, 1674, Capt. Hull and his wife had been
living at Portsmouth. On that date his brother-in-law, ]\Ir. John
Cutt, in consideration stated to be "love and affection" for his
kinsman Reuben Hull and Hannah his wife, conveyed to him a
lot of land in Portsmouth, with right of way to obtain water from
a well which Reuben Hull had already dug on land of the grantor.
By same deed Mr. Cutt conveys to Reuben Hull a wharf and privi-
lege on the river. The records show that on Aug. 5, 1677, Reuben
Hull was witness to a deed from William Ham to Matthew Ham;
that he was one of those selected to vote at the first election, held on
Mar. I, 1679-80, to choose an assembly under the new government,
of which his said brother-in-law President John Cutt was the head ;
that he was a member of the jury which on Mar. 16, 1679-80 met
to try the important case of Mark Hunking vs. Edward Randolph,
and that in December of the year last mentioned he was the holder
of a mortgage against the homestead of William Williams, Sr.
President Cutt died Mar. 27, 1681, and Reuben Hull was named
as one of the overseers of his will, and was made guardian of
John Cutt, Jr., the President's oldest son, who was a minor.

In September, 1681, Reuben Hull was nominated by President
and Council as an alternate candidate for one of the vacancies in
the Council, but their first choice, Anthony Nutter, was appointed
In January, 1683, he was a witness against Edward Cove, who
was accused and convicted of treason. In January, 16S4, his
name appears in a list of members of the Portsmouth troop of
horse commanded by Capt. Robert Mason. In 1685 he witnessed
the will of John Beckford, St., of Oyster River.
The next mention of him in ancient records is under date of
Aug. 2, 1688, and recites that Richard Hyat of Barbadoes gives a
power of attorney to his "trusty and well beloved friend Reuben
Hull, of Piscataqua," merchant, to sell certain lands. Reuben Hull
conveys under this power by deed dated Mar. 20, 1689.
The witnesses of the will of Reuben Hull swore that they
heard him declare what was written to be his will, but that he died
before he had an opportunity to sign and seal it. This will con-
veys to his wife Hannah a life interest in his realty, provides that
his son Joseph Hull shall on death of testator, have a certain part
consisting of house, land, wharf and warehouse, with a proviso
that if they be appraised at more than his double share he is to
pay the surplus to the other children. It conveys to the testator's
sister-in-law Sarah Fernside, ten pounds, and directs that his
island, house, stages, boats and "concernes" at the Isle of Shoals
be sold; and that the residue of his estate, after the bringing up
of his children until they are of age be equally divided among
The principle articles mentioned in the inventory of his estate
are, dwelling house, brewhouse, garden, warehouses, wharf, one
half of ketch Adventure, one gundelowe and several cannoes, one
Negro man, one Negro old woman, William Gubbo of Jersey, a
servant (appraised at five pounds), and a quantity of silver.
Hannah Fernside Hull married as her second husband, George
Snell, and the records show that on Sept. 25, 1702, George Snell
and wife Sarah, relict and executrix of Reuben Hull, of Portsmouth,
deceased, convey to William Partridge "One well with the water
The will of George Snell was proved in March, 1708. In it
he names as executors his wife and John Snell, mentions his
children, Hannah Littlefield and Abiel Hill, refers to an obligation
he gave his wife on marriage to give to each child one hundred
pounds, and states that his books will show how much he had ad-
vanced to each. Then follows :

"I doe give to my sonn Reuben Hull my scale and compasses and
wearing clones ;
"I doe give to my daughter Sarah my silver scolop dish and my
white codell pote and cheny bason."
In a deed dated July 15, 1719, one of the grantors is described
as "Hannah Snell of Portsmouth, widow and executrix of her
former husband Reuben Hull of Portsmouth, mariner." The last
recorded deeds executed by "Hannah Snell" are dated May 13,
1726. The date of her death has not been ascertained.

258 DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH HULL
20. Benjamin Hull, about 1642 , of Portsmouth, N. H.,
son of (3) Joseph Hull, was married about 1664 to Mary Fern-
side, daughter of John and Elizabeth Starr Fernside of Duxbury
and Boston, whose sister Hannah married (13) Reuben Hull.
This Benjamin Hull, like the said Reuben, who was his uncle but
probably his junior in years, was a merchant and man of affairs
in Portland. He was a Selectman of Portland in 1678. He was
politically opposed to the arbitrary Cranfield and his ai^davit
against him was read before the Privy Council Mar. 10, 1684. It
is a matter of record that this affidavit of Benjamin Hull, and
others of like nature from business men of Portsmouth, led to the
removal of Cranfield from the Governorship of the colony.
21. Phineas Hull, 1648 , son of (3) Joseph Hull, was at
Kittery, Me., in 1671, and in 1681 had a grant of 60 acres at
Saco on the eastern side of Little River Falls where he erected
a mill. In 1682 he was taxed at Cape Porpoise 2 pounds for his
saw mill and to support Fort Loyal. In 1683 he was chosen
Townsman of Saco, and in 1684 was fined 28 shillings for "saucy
and abusive language toward Rev. Mr. Milbum, a minister of
the united churches at Saco and Cape Porpus."
On Aug. 22, 1690, when he was traveling with his wife Jerusha,
■ and Robert Young, between York and Kittery, they were attacked
by Indians, who killed Young and carried into captivity Hull's wife,
but from whom Hull himself escaped. Mrs. Hull was kept a
prisoner until Nov. 23, 1691, when she was released under condi-
tions of a truce entered into at Sagadahoc. Mrs. Hull made no
complaint of the usage accorded her while in the hands of her
captors. They caused her at times to serve them as a Secretary
in their communications with the whites, and as she wrote plainly
it is said they were loth to part with her. "It is conjectured that
this man's family all perished in the murderous times of the long-
continued Indian Wars."
22. John Hull, 16 — 1673, of Saco, Me., son of (3) Joseph
Hull, was married to Mary Spencer, "a young gentlewoman of
good repute," the daughter of "Capt. Robert Spencer, a person of
good fashion." They removed to Boston, and he was there styled
Junior to distinguish him from John Hull the mint master and
treasurer of the colony. He died there intestate and childless. His
widow married as her second husband, William Phipps, afterward
Sir William and Royal Governor of Massachusetts.
DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH HULL 259
Sir William Phipps died in 1695, also without issue, leaving his
property by will to his "entirely beloved wife Mary," who took
for her third husband Hon. Peter Sergeant, a member of the Coun-
cil. She had no issue by any of her husbands. By will "her ac-
cumulations went to her adopted son, Spencer Phipps, alias Bennett,
23. DoDivAH Hull, about 1645-1682, of York, Me., son of
(3) Joseph Hull, had a grant of 15 acres in the town of York
Sept 21, 1667. His only child so far as known, was a daughter
named ]Mary, who married Nicholas Follett, Jr., son of the Nicho-
las Follett of Dover, who was deputy to the convention on the
overthrow of Andros in 1689. Nicholas, Sr., was the son of
William Follett and his wife Elizabeth, colonist residents of Dover
in 165 1. Nicholas and Mary Hull Follett lived in Portsmouth and
left descendants. On Feb. 25, 1702-3, the above mentioned 15
acres of land in York, deeded to Dodivah Hull in 1667, was laid
out anew to his son-in-law, Nicholas Follett.
New Hampshire state papers Vol. XXXI., page 258, show that
on June 6, 1682, administration was granted Mary Hull, the will of
her husband, Dodivah Hull, being imperfect.
25. Mary Hull, 1645 > daughter of (4) Capt. Tristram
and his wife Blanche, was married in 1661 to Joseph Hoi way,
1635 , son of Joseph Holway and his wife Rose of Sandwich,

28. Joseph Hull, 1652-1709 or 1719, of Barnstable, Mass.,
and South Kingston, R. I., son of (4) Capt. Tristram Hull and
his wife Blanche, was by occupation a planter, cooper, merchant
and shipper. He doubtless joined the Society of Friends previous
to his marriage in October, 1676, to his Quaker wife, Experience
Harper, 1657 , daughter of Robert Harper and his wife De-
borah Perry of Sandwich, Mass.
26o DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH HULL
Robert Harper was a Quaker of prominence. In 1660 he stood
under the scaffold and caught in his arms the body of his friend
William Leddra, the martyr preacher, when cut down by the Bos-
ton hangman. For this act Harper and his wife were the same
At about the time that Joseph Hull and Experience Harper were
married, the magistrates of Massachusetts undertook without due
process of law to release bondservants and cancel articles of ap-
prenticeship, where the masters were Quakers. In the execution
of some such ex-party order the sheriff was soundly thrashed by
Joseph Hull, who, for so doing was fined seven pounds. This
fine, for some unstated reason, was abated at a subsequent session
of the court.
Soon after the occurance above noted, Joseph Hull sold the
estate at Barnstable, which had been devised to him by his father,
to one John Lathrop, and settled on land he had purchased at
Little Harbor, South Kingston, R. I. In 1678 he increased his
holdings at Little Harbor by an additional tract for which he paid
one hundred and five pounds, and in 1685 he and his father-in-
law were granted authority to take up additional tracts in the
eastern section of the town.
At the election held May 3, 1699, he was chosen Assistant in
the Government of Rhode Island, an office corresponding in digni-
ty with that of State Senator at the present time. On May 6,
1701, he was again chosen to the same office. At a General Assem-
bly held March 22, 1709, the sum of sixteen pounds and ten
shillings was voted him as a gratuity for the good service and
charge he had been at in promoting the interest of the colony.
The first houses of any pretention built in the Narragansett
country were at Tower Hill, the capital of King's Province, which
was at one time called Rochester, and which became and remained
South Kingston. One of the first and largest of these dwellings
was that of Joseph Hull.
The Narragansett Monthly Meeting of Friends residing in the
territory embracing Providence, Warwick, Greenwich and Kings-
ton, was established in 1699. Joseph Hull had now become a
speaker or preacher, and the First day and weekly meetings were
held in his spacious dwelling until the latter part of the following
year, when the society's Meeting House, though not yet finished,
was ready to worship in.
There is a tradition connected with this old Hull house at
Narragansett which runs in this wise: A daughter of the host
had been married during the day, and when in the evening the
friends were celebrating the event, a rejected suitor approached

29. Capt. John Hull, 1654-1733, of London, England, and
Newport and Connonicut, R. I., son of (4) Capt. Tristram Hull
and his wife Blanche, was married Oct. 23, 1684 at Horseleydown
meeting of Friends, in Southwalk, London, to Alice Tiddeman,
1659-1734, daughter of Capt. Edmund Tiddeman, who was a
resident of the Parish of Mary St. Magdelen's, Burmundy, South-
wickshire, and a member of the Horseleydown meeting.
Capt. John Hull from early life followed the sea, and for many
years sailed his father's and his own ships between Newport and
London, and acquired lasting fame as a navigator in both England
and America. He was the master, instructor, and friend of one
of the most successful naval commanders in English histor}- —
the well-known "Quaker Admiral," the Right Hon. Sir Charles
Wager, Admiral ol the White, First Lord of the Admiralty and
Capt. Edmund Tiddeman's name appears in a list of "^sufferers
and gallant standard bearers" given in Besse's great book. In
July, 1670, the Horseleydown Friends' meeting house was de-
molished by order of the King in council, and Sir Christopher
Wren, England's greatest church architect, superintended the des-
truction of the humble place of worship. Thereafter private or
"silent" meetings for worship were held in the house of Capt.
Tiddeman until their meeting house was rebuilt as it now stands.
In 1672 Capt. Tiddeman traveled in company with William Penn
on a religious visit through Kent County. He was in prison in
1683, but was released before the marriage of his daughter Alice
to Capt. John Hull, in 1684, at which date 1460 Friends were lying
in the common jails of the counties of England, Scotland, Wales and
262 DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH HULL
Ireland. At about this period Capt. Tiddeman purchased a tract
of more than 700 acres of land in Burlington Co., N. J., no doubt
with a view of emigrating and settling there, but he never came to
this country, and the land in question passed through his daughter
Alice to her son, Joseph Hull.
Capt. John and Alice Tiddeman Hull remained in London for
about two years after their marriage. Then they removed to
Newport, R. I., bringing with them a certificate from the monthly
meeting at Horseleydown, dated 27th of 2nd month 1687, certi-
fying that while resident there "they behaved themselves in their
lives and conversations as becometh friends of the Blessed Truth."
They had been in Newport but a short time when Capt. Hull
purchased a plantation of 370 acres on the north end of Connonicut
Island, in Narragansett Bay, and there built a mansion v.hich
eventually became their permanent home. This mansion was
b'urned by the British in the winter of 1775-6, but was rebuilt
and is still occupied by his descendants, and is known as the Old
Capt. Hull was admitted a freeman of the colony May 6, 1690,
and was deputy to the General Assembly of Rhode Island in 1698,
1706, 1707 and 1709. representing Connonicut (Jamestown). He
held the local offices of councilman and assessor ; was town clerk
in 1695 '^nd again in 1704, and became head warden of Jamestown
He died at Connonicut, and by his will dated Jan. 19, 1732,
a large property was distributed among his heirs. Farms were
given to each of his three sons; an ample life interest was se-
cured to his wife, and a large residuary- estate in lands and per-
sonalty was divided in equal shares among all his children and the
heirs of deceased children.
Alice Tiddeman Hull survived her husband but a short time.
She died Oct. 24, 1734. In her will she disposed of her property
by equal division among her children. She was reputed to be
"a lady of great dignity and amiability of character."
