The inventory of "the estate of Sarah Hull late deceased in Fairfield" was taken 25 August 1659 and was untotalled; no real estate was included [ Fairfield PR 1:61-62]. BIRTH: By about 1589 (based on date of first marriage), son of Thomas and Joan (Pyssing) Hull [ Evans Festschrift 44, 49-50; Dawes-Gates 2:453 DEATH: Fairfield after 26 May 1658 [ Fairfield LR 1:45] and before 25 August 1659 (date of inventory). MARRIAGE: (1) Crewkerne, Somerset, 27 August 1614 Thomasine Mitchell [ Ackley-Bosworth 78]; she died before 1654. (2) After 11 July 1654 Sarah (_____) Phippen, widow of David Phippen of Boston [ TAG 17:5]; she died at Fairfield shortly before 25 August 1659. CHILDREN (first six baptized Crewkerne [ TAG 20:supplement 18; Ackley-Bosworth 78]): i JOSIAS, bp. 10 November 1616; m. Windsor 20 May 1641 Elizabeth Loomis [ Grant 46]. ii MARY, bp. 27 July 1618; m. Dorchester by about 1637 HUMPHREY PINNEY [ Grant 58]. iii MARTHA, bp. 29 October 1620; named in father's will in 1659; no further record. iv ELIZABETH, bp. 16 October 1625; m. Windsor 4 December 1646 Samuel Gaylord [ Grant 42], son of WILLIAM GAYLORD . v CORNELIUS, bp. 13 April 1628; m. about November 1653 Rebecca Jones, daughter of Rev. John Jones (George Hull deeded land to his son Cornelius on 29 November 1653 "upon his marriage" [ Fairfield LR 1:48]; in his will of 17 January 1664/5 John Jones made a bequest to his daughter Rebecca Hull [ FOOF 1:344]). (In some sources the date of this marriage is given as 19 November 1652, but there is no record of the event in Fairfield vital records; the date would seem to be a misreading and a misuse of the gift of land from father to son on 29 November 1653, which must have been very close to the date of marriage.) vi JOSHUA, bp. 5 November 1630; no further record. vii NAOMI, b. say 1632; named in father's will in 1659; no further record. ASSOCIATIONS: George Hull was elder brother of Reverend Joseph Hull who arrived in New England in 1635 [ Evans Festschrift 44-51, which summarizes earlier work by the author (John Insley Coddington) and others on the Hull family, and presents new evidence on the ancestry of Joan Pyssing, mother of George and Joseph]. In his will George Hull mentioned cousin Jane Pinkney, and his second wife named cousins Jane and Philip Pinkney in her will. In his account of Philip Pinkney, Jacobus supposes that "[h]e and his wife were perhaps drawn to Fairfield by the marriage of their aunt, Mrs. Sarah Phippen, to George Hull" [ FOOF 1:482], but the exact nature of the relationship is not known. COMMENTS: George Hull has been included in some lists of passengers on the Mary & John, but his son Joshua was baptized in Crewkerne on 5 November 1630 and the first record of him in New England is his admission as freeman of Massachusetts Bay on 4 March 1632/3, which makes an arrival date of 1632 far more likely. On 5 March 1639[/40] George Hull and other men returned the appraisal of the estate of the children of Thomas Newberry [ RPCC 9]. William Hill named him an overseer in his will, 9 September 1649 [ Manwaring 1:128]. George Hull and Alexander Knowles took the inventory of William Cross of Fairfield, 7 September 1655 [ Manwaring 1:111]. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
