Savage and others have identified this Richard Hull (of New Haven in 1640) with the Richard Hull admitted freeman of Massachusetts Bay 1 Apr 1634. That Richard was listed among men of Dorchester suggesting he would be the brother of George and John Hull of Dorchester. Anderson5 says there is no particular reason identify the two Richards, or to connect either to a "Richard Hull, carpenter," who was in Boston in 1637.
