Will proved 20 Oct 1659. Residence: 1630 Dorchester, Mass (arrived on the "Mary & John"); 1636 Windsor, Conn; Killingworth, Conn; 1646 Fairfield, Conn. The family of George Hull was in a quite poor financial state in England. When his father, Thomas Hull of Crewkerne, Somerset, died in 1636, he left an estate valued at 17 pounds, 7 shillings, 6 pence, of which 9 pounds, 2 shillings, 2 pence was in outstanding debts. After the funeral expenses had been paid there were only 2 pounds in cash. The home must have been hardly more than a hovel since it contained only a bed, 2 table boards, 1 chest, 2 coffers, 1 chair, 1 other item of furniture, 1 skillet, and 1 pewter dish. (Somerset Record office MS Inventory of estate of Thomas Hull. The will was destroyed in the bombing of Exeter in 1942, but the inventory, by accident, had not been moved to Exeter with other documents when the ecclesiastical courts were abolished in 1857.) George Hull was b. abt 1590, presumably in Crewkerne; his mother was Jane Peson Hull. On Sept 27, 1614, he m. Thamzen, daughter of Robert Mitchell of Stockland, Devon. His children, who probably sailed with him, were Mary, Josias, Martha, Naomi, Elizabeth & Cornelius. It is probably that his wife stayed behind for a time with the baby Joshua, who may not have been born yet when the rest of the family left England, as he was baptized at Crewkerne in the autumn of 1630. The Hull family, it would seem, made the decision to go to New England to seek economic betterment; there is no evidence regarding their religious convictions, and George Hull did not become a freeman until March 4, 1632. He must have found himself in better circumstances in the New World since he was a surveyor and representative from Dorchester to the first General Court. After his remove to Windsor, CT, in 1637, he represented that town until 1646, in the General Court of CT. The following year, when he went with Roger Ludlow to Fairfield, he sold his home to Governor John Haynes. In 1648 & 1649 he was again in the General Court, and in the latter year was Ludlow's assistant in military operations. In 1651, 1653, & 1654, he was an assistant magistrate. The date of his 1st wife's death is unknown. His 2nd wife was Sarah, widow of David Phippen of Boston, whom he m. prob. after 1654. George Hull d in 1655 in Fairfield, CT. 3 4 5 2
