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.

2. THOMAS HULL (Richard1). Born ca 1552 in Of Crewkerne, Somersetshire, England. Thomas died in Somersetshire, England, bef 29 Dec 1636; he was 84. Buried in Crewkerne Cemetery, Crewkerne, Somersetshire, England. On 11 Jan 1572/1573 when Thomas was 20, he married Joane PYSSING, daughter of John PESON/PYSING & Margery ?, in Crewkerne, Somersetshire, England. Born ca 1554 in England. Joane died in England bef 30 Oct 1629; she was 75.

  1. William. Occupation: Vicar Of Colyton.
  2. George (1589->1658)
  3. JOSEPH (1595-1665)
  4. John. Born in England.

Thomas and his brothers belonged to a militia organized for the purpose of defending the Realm from the feared invasion of Spain, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. (According to the Certificate of Musters/569 Somerset Record Society, Vol. 20, 1904 page 23)


Thomas was listed as "pekeman" (probably one who fought with a pike) and Raynold was a "billman" (one who fought with a bille). Raynold along with others was responsible to supply the following weapons: 16 billies, 12 swords, 10 daggers, and 12 skulls (caps).

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.

Thomas and his brothers belonged to a militia organized for the purpose of defending the Realm from the feared invasion of Spain, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Thomas was listed as a "pekeman" (probably one who fought with a pike) and Raynold was a "Billman" (one who fought with a bille)

(more) He had an estate probated on 10 Feb 1637 in Crewkerne, Somerset Co., ENG;

1/11/1572 marriage of Thomas Hull to Johane Peson - Crewkerne [p 6 Somerset Parish Registers: marriages]

Birth: 1547 Crewkerne South Somerset District Somerset, England Death: Dec. 29, 1636 Crewkerne South Somerset District Somerset, England

Born, married and died in Crewkerne. Son of Richard and Alyce (Alice). According to “Genealogies of the Early Families of Weymouth, Massachusetts,” Thomas Hull and Johane Peson (Joan Person) were married in Crewkerne, Somerset, England on January 11, 1572/3. "Crewkerne" may have originated with the Celtic word "crewel' meaning "stepping stones."

When Thomas died in Crewkerne in 1636 his estate was worth only 17 pounds 7 shillings 6 pence, and he owed 9 pounds 2 shillings 6 pence in debts. After funeral expenses, he left only 2 pounds cash. Ann Hansen, in The English Origin of the "Mary & John" Passengers speculated that his home "must have been hardly more than a hovel since, according to the inventory, it contained only a bed, two table boards, one chest, two coffers, one chair, one other item of furniture, one skillet, and one pewter dish." 287 Colonial Families of the United States of America: Volume 3. Thomas' son George immigrated from Crewkerne to Windsor, Ct USA in 1626. He was very well connected at that time to wealthy merchants, and was a personal friend of the Governor of Connecticut.

Thomas and Joane had the following children: Elinor Hull (b. 1573) William Hull (VICAR) (1574-1627) Mary Hull (1577-1584) Agnes Hull (1578-1579) Thomas Hull Jr. (1582-1627) Robert Hull (1584-1654) John Hull (1586-1627) George Hull (1590-1659) Francis Hull (1591-1595) Frances Hull (1592-1594) Joseph Hull (1594-1665) Joshua Hull (1597-1665) Richard Hull (1599-1662) submitted by member# 47381115
