Joseph and his first wife had 7 children that we know of:

  2. Joseph, jr, born ~1622, probably at Northleigh (his father became rector there in 1621)
  3. Captain Tristram, our next ancestor, born ~1624, probably at Northleigh.
  4. Temperance, baptized 20 March 1625/6 at Northleigh.  She married John Bickford ~1649.
  5. Elizabeth, born ~1628, probably at Northleigh.  She married John Heard (who was NOT the son of Luke Heard and Sarah Wyatt) in ~1643, probably at York, Maine.  She died 30 Nov 1706.

  7. Dorothy, born ~1632. She married twice, first Oliver Kent; second Captain Benjamin Mathews.

Notes

Rev. Joseph Hull was not married to Joanna Coffin! The name comes from some inventive and quite persuasive speculation by an eary Hull researcher, Orra Eugene Monnette. He based his speculation on the usual genealogical suspects: names of children, locations of possible relatives, etc. However, Phyllis Hughes found that the Joanna Coffin under consideration - daughter of Peter and Joanna (Thember) Coffin - was only ~3 years old when she supposedly married, so that's that. You still see the name in various published genealogies, because other researchers copied Monnette, and still others copied them - but it is quite wrong. (See Phyllis's article in the Hull Family Association Journal, v. 12, #1, Spring 2001, pp 23-4)
