    "CAPTAIN JOHN HULL, fourth child and second son of Tristram and Blanche Hull, was born in Barnstable, March, 1654. He held various public offices at Jamestown, R. I., and was Assessor, Town Clerk, for seven years, in the Town Council, and Deputy, 1698, 1703, 1706, 1707, 1709. He was also on the important committee to hire out ferries, belonging to the Colonies. Admiral Sir Charles Wager was his apprentice when a boy, and a sincere friendship always existed between them. He brought over from London an English wife, having been married there October 23, 1684, to Alice, the daughter of Captain Edmund Teddeman, of St. Magdalens, London. Their marriage certificate is in the possession of the family, and is a most interesting document, bearing the names of a great number of those who witnessed the ceremony. Their son: JOHN HULL II., lived at Canonicut, and married Damaris, the daughter of John and Damaris (Arnold) Cary. He held various offices, among others that of Representative, in 1757. Their son was Oliver Hull. 29. CAPT. JOHN HULL, 1654-1733, of London, England, and Newport andConnonicut, R. I., son of (4) Capt. Tristram Hull and his wife Blanche,was married Oct. 23, 1684 at Horseleydown meeting of Friends, in Southwalk, London, to Alice Tiddeman, 1659-1734, daughter of Capt. EdmundTiddeman, who was a resident of the Parish of Mary St. Magdelen's, Burmundy, Southwickshire, and a member of the Horseleydown meeting. Capt. John Hull from early life followed the sea, and for many years sailed his father's and his own ships between Newport and London, and acquired lasting fame as a navigator in both England and America. He was the master, instructor, and friend of one of the most successful naval commanders in English history--the well-known 'Quaker Admiral,' the Right Hon. Sir Charles Wager, Admiral of the White, First Lord of the Admiralty and Privy Councillor. Capt. Edmund Tiddeman's name appears in a list of 'sufferers and gallant standard bearers' given in Besse's great book. In July, 1670, the Horseleydown Friends' meeting house was demolished by order of the King in council, and Sir Christopher Wren, England's greatest church architect, superintended the destruction of the humble place of worship.Thereafter private or 'silent' meetings for worship were held in the house of Capt. Tiddeman until their meeting house was rebuilt as it now stands. In 1672 Capt. Tiddeman traveled in company with William Penn on a religious visit through Kent County. He was in prison in 1683, but was released before the marriage of his daughter Alice to Capt. John Hull, in 1684, at which date 1460 Friends were lying in the common jails of the counties of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. At about this period Capt. Tiddeman purchased a tract of more than 700 acres of land in Burlington Co., N. J., no doubt with a view of emigrating and settling there, but he never came to this country, and the land in question passed through his daughter Alice to her son, Joseph Hull. Capt. John and Alice Tiddeman Hull remained in London for about two years after their marriage. Then they removed to Newport, R. I., bringing with them a certificate from the monthly meeting at Horseleydown, dated 27 thof 2nd month 1687, certifying that while resident there 'they behaved themselves in their lives and conversations as becometh friends of the Blessed Truth.' They had been in Newport but a short time when Capt. Hull purchased a plantation of 370 acres on the north end of Connonicut Island, in Narragansett Bay, and there built a mansion which eventually became their permanent home. This mansion was burned by the British in the winter of 1775-6, but was rebuilt and is still occupied by his descendants, and is known as the Old Hull Place. Capt. Hull was admitted a freeman of the colony May 6, 1690, and was deputy to the General Assembly of Rhode Island in 1698, 1706, 1707 and1709, representing Connonicut (Jamestown). He held the local offices of councilman and assessor; was town clerk in 1695 and again in 1704, and became head warden of Jamestown in 1712. He died at Connonicut, and by his will dated Jan. 19, 1732, a large property was distributed among his heirs. Farms were given to each of his three sons; an ample life interest was secured to his wife, and a large residuary estate in lands and personalty was divided in equal shares among all his children and the heirs of deceased children. Alice Tiddeman Hull survived her husband but a short time. She died Oct.24, 1734. In her will she disposed of her property by equal division among her children. She was reputed to be 'a lady of great dignity and amiability of character.
