About Thomas (the Younger) Hull

The George Hull Line and the Reverend Joseph Hull Line of Crewkerne, co. Somerset, England

These men were brothers and sons of Thomas Hull, the Younger. Thomas Hull, the Younger, was a son of Richard Hull and this is where the lineage ends, as the parish records terminate with this generation.

There is absolutely no evidence to assign this family to a lineage which includes Hugh Hull and Matthew Hull. These Hulls are an entirely separate family from the Crewkerne, England, Hulls, and are not known to be related.

Notes for Thomas Hull:

Thomas appears to have been prosperous, since he was able to send two of his sons to Oxford. The full description of their parentage in the marriage record indicates their wealth allowed them to marry in their minority.

    Thomas Hull was born in 1552 in Crewkerne, Somerset, England.3 He married Joan Pyssing, daughter of Richard Pyssing and Margery Everedd?, on 11 January 1572/73 in Crewkerne, Somerset, England.3,4 Thomas died before 29 December 1636.3 He was buried on 29 December 1636 in Crewkerne, Somerset, England.3 
      Thomas lived in Winsham and Crewkerne, Somerset, England. He was taxed, in 1627, at Crewkerne, in the Subsidy of King Charles I.3
    Some time before 1599 the four families who had inherited equal shares in Crewkerne Manor from the last Earl of Devon decided to have a survey made to ascertain the value of their inheritance. These four families were Mawde Hull (widow of John Hull brother of Thomas Hull the younger), Margery Pesinge (widow of RIchard Pesinge, mother of Joane Peson wife of Thomas Hull the younger), Elizabeth Pesinge (sister of Joane Peson), and Thomas Hull (the younger).

Note: Thomas Hull, the younger, is apparently Richard's 2nd son named Thomas. His mother is the 2nd wife, Alice. The names listed above as Pesinge, Peson, and Pyssing are probably all referring to the same family name as they did often did not coordinate the spelling of names in that time.
