About Hon. Hugh Hall
Hugh Hall, son of Hugh, was born at Bridgetown, Barbardos, May 28, 1673. He graduated from Harvard College in 1713.He was a merchant of Barbados for twelve years, Judge of the Admiralty Court, and finally member of the King's Council and seems to have divided his time between that island and Boston, Massachusetts. He had 3 wives. His first wife was Lydia, daughter of Benjamin Gibbs, born at Boston, January 26, 1669-70. Her mother was Lydia, daughter of Joshua Scottow. Mrs. Gibbs, after the death of her husband, married 2d, Capt. Anthony Checkley (attorney general) and 3d, William Colman, father of the Rev. Benjamin Colman of the Brattle Square Church. Mrs. Lydia Hall died at Philadelphia, Sept. 11, 1699.
Mr. Hall married 2d, Mary ___, before 1706, as on the register of baptisms is the entry. "April 23, 1706, Charles child of Hugh Hall Esq. and Mary his wife." Mrs. Hall seems to have died before May 28, 1712, as her husband in a letter of that date to his son Hugh, then in Boston, writes:
I send you one whole package of Gingham Hollands (for shirts), one small pasteboard Trunk containing one Furbelowed Gold gauze scarf, one silk handkerchief with gold edging and one black flowered Gauze Whood (for sale for what you can get, they having been my late dear wife's), therefore would have as little noise made of them as possible. Of these cloaths, &c. I could send considerably, but believe are richer than are commonly worn there, so forbear it and have Pickt out these trifles with short ordinary wear (tho' not much worse.) Mr. Hall married thirdly, Anne ___, who survived him. The marriage was as early as 1718, for the baptism is recorded on August 18th of that year of Elizabeth Hall, "child of Hugh and Anne." The other children of Hugh and Anne on the parish register, Are Margaret, baptized Nov. 28, born Nov. 25, 1725, and John baptized March 19, born Feb. 12, 1727.
Mr. Hall died at Boston, Sept. 20, 1732, and was buried in King's Chapel Burial Ground. A miniature of him in Court robes of high colors is preserved. His will was probated at Barbados on the 15th of November following. His children named in it were: Hugh, Richard, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth (blind), Anne Margaret, John and Charles-nine in all, of whom the last five were by his wife Anne, who survived him.
