101 From "Genealogies of Virginia Families":

The author of the Cosby Genealogy does not state why he estimated that this couple married between 1730 and 1733, which is manifestly too early. 
Cosby, John (I1552)
 
102 From "Genealogies of Virginia Families":

The first clue to the ancestry of George Reade was the fact, shown by several letters in the 1st Vol. English Calendar of Colonial State Papers, that he had a brother, Robert Reade, who was private secretary to Sir Francis Windebanke, Secretary of State of England, temp. Charles I. General Meredith Reade, formerly American Consul at Paris, who, though not related to this family, felt an interest in the name, made researches and published the result in the London Athenaeum of April 28, 1894. He ascertained that George Reade was a descendant of the Reades of Faccombe, in the county of Southampton...

The second son of Andrew was Robert Reade, who lived at Linkenholt, and was married three times. His third wife was Mildred, daughter of Sir Thomas Windebanke, of Haine's Hill, parish of Hurst, Berkshire, who was clerk of the signet to Elizabeth and James, and died October 24, 1607...

Robert Reade's will was dated December 10, 1626. 
Reade, Esq. Robert (I1454)
 
103 From "Genealogies of Virginia Families":

The fourth son, John, was born at Faccombe 1579, was a scholar of Winchester College 1591, and admitted to New College, Oxford, February 4, 1598. He probably died before his father. 
Reade, John (I1456)
 
104 From "Genealogies of Virginia Families":

The records of York county show that Colonel George Reade had a son Thomas. An act of Assembly passed Nov. 1769, recites that Edmund Gwyn, late of Gloucester, deceased, possesed [sic] a tract of land of 550 acres in the parish of Ware, Gloucester, and by his will dated March 10, 1683, he devised said land to his son John Gwyn, and in the event of his death without issue, to his daughter Lucy Gwyn, and soon after died; and said John entered into possession and was succeeded by his sister Lucy, who married Thomas Reade, of Glouchester [sic] deceased and by him had issue Thomas Reade, her eldest son, and John Reade her second son; and the said Lucy dying, her son Thomas entered into possession, and dying without issue, was succeeded by the said John Reade, late of the county of King and Queen, Clerk, deceased, and on his death the land descended to his only daughter and heir, Sarah, now the wife of John Rootes, Gentleman. The act also recites that Mildred Warner, relict of Augustine Warner, of Gloucester, Esquire, possessed a tract of land given her by her father George Reade Esq., lying at Cheescake in Gloucester, which by her will dated Jan. 4, 1694, she left to two of her sons, with reversion to her brothers Robert, Frances, Benjamin and Thomas Reade, and the sons dying without issue, the land was divided, and two tracts of 200 and 485 acres respectively, became vested in Thomas Reade, who left issue, as above, Thomas and John Reade, and this land also became vested in Sarah wife of John Rootes (Hening viii, 483.) As this act was only intended to affect lands inherited by the heir of John Reade, it is no evidence as to whether Thomas Reade (son of Col. George,) had other children.

Edmund Gwyn had grants of land in Gloucester in 1678 and 1684.

An interesting view of the Falls of Montmorency from an early nineteenth century travel volume, Pinkerton's General Collection. The images in this work, engraved by George Cook, are mostly based on original images. This shows the falls falling into the river, in which a sailing ship is moored. This ship probably brought the tourists shown at the bottom of the engraving, giving a sense of scale to the scene. $125

From http://www.unc.edu/student/orgs/di_phi/reference_desk/docs/intro_1943.htm:

Judge Gaston's portrait is a poor copy, by Bogle after George Cook; that of Elisha Mitchell is the work of a man more distinguished as an engraver than a portraitist in oil--Nathaniel Jocelyn--and while in many ways charming, lacks the force and grandeur with which the subject should have impressed the artist; while the third, that of King, which is an original by George Cook, by no means approaches the quality of the portrait of President Hooper of Wake Forest painted by the same hand. This latter is really from a technical standpoint, of exquisite quality. Cook who was born in Maryland in 1793 studied abroad, where, as we can see, he acquired a facility with the brush second to none in this country.

The Athens Middling



Athens Middling, 14 11-15 5o 14 3-4 c.

Hon. Augustus L. Hull has yielded to Death

Death came last night at Nine O'Clock. Was One of the Most Prominent Citizens of Athens. Identified for Many Years with the Educational Institutions of the City. Funeral Saturday

After a brave, patient, determined fight against the last foe, Hon. Augustus L. Hull has yielded to death.

For several years he had been in failing health and from the severe attack of grip last summer he never rallied fully, although he recovered sufficiently to resume his duties as secretary and treasurer of the University of Georgia for a few weeks in September and October.

For the past few days it was known that recovery was impossible and yesterday morning, realizing that his death was near at hand, he said to his loved ones, gathered around his bedside, that he faced the final moment in perfect confidence and calmly awaited the end.

His passing was a beautiful tribute to a clean, honorable, Christian life, as he went down through the valley of shadow triumphant and unafraid.

The end came at 9 o'clock last night, when, answering the summons of his Master, he entered upon the reward of the faithful and true.

He was a typical representative of Southern civilization, a gentleman of the old school, upright, true, loyal, brave and faithful. His death is not only a great blow to his loved ones, but a distinct loss to the community he had served so well since boyhood.

Mr. Hull was born in the city of Athens September 8, 1847, and was in his sixty-third year at the time of his death. He was the son of the late Dr. Henry Hull, and a member of a family closely identified with the upbuilding of this city.

When the War Between the States came on he was only 14 years of age, but he was fired by the martini spirit of Southern youth and longed to go to the front. Later on, in 1864, he became a courier in the Army of Tennessee, the Western army of the Confederacy, and served until the close of the war. He was prouder of his connection with the Confederate army than any other part he played in life. He possessed no treasure that he valued quite as highly as his Confederate Cross of Honor. He was true and loyal to the traditions of the South up to the very moment of his passing. A little more than a year ago he bore the message of Athens to the Confederate Veterans of Georgia, asking that they meet in reunion in this city. When the old heroes in gray came, last September, he was in too feeble health to take an active part in their entertainment as he desired, but he remembered that he was again a soldier, and that his comrades were around him. So, in spite of physical infirmity he mixed and mingled with the old heroes of the sixties and enjoyed intensely the pleasures of the great reunion.

In 1866 he graduated at the University of Georgia, and soon thereafter as a civil engineer, assisted in locating the Augusta and Savannah railroad, between Camak and Macon. From 1869 to 1872 he taught school in this city, and in 1873, became cashier of the Bank of the University, a position he held until 1890, when he became secretary and treasurer of the University of Georgia, which position he held until his death.

Mr. Hull was devoted to educational work. He was the first president of the board of education of the city of Athens, and for many years had been the treasurer of that board. In the early days of the city school system, and down to the present time, he had labored with patience and devotion as a member of that board, and much of the splendid accomplishments of the Athens city schools are due to his ability and his ceaseless interest.

In 1887 he became president of the board of trustees of Lucy Cobb Institute, and in that position served until the date of his death. This was to him peculiarly a labor of love, for he had an abiding love for that institution.

Mr. Hull took an active interest in all movements for civic improvement. He once served as a city alderman, was a member of the water works commission of the city, was treasurer of the Georgia-Carolina and Northern railroad during the period of its construction, and was always to be found on the side of the best interests of his city.

He was a man of distinct literary talent, and was fond of historical writing. He wrote a number of valuable papers for the Southern Historical Society, was author of "Historical Sketch of the University of Georgia; " "Campaigns of the Confederacy" and "Annals of Athens, GA." He had also delivered a number of most interesting lectures at times.

For the greater part of his life, he had been a member of the Presbyterian church, and for many years an elder in that church. There, as everywhere, he was a faithful, conscientious, devoted worker, and in his death his church sustains a great loss.

He married Miss Callie Cobb, daughter of Gen. Thomas R. R. Cobb, and is survived by her and their seven children -- Dr. Marion McHenry Hull, of Atlanta; Mr. Harry Hull, of Athens; Mr. Longstreet Hull, of Roswell, N. M.; Mr. Joseph L. Hull, of Union City; Mrs. William H. Pope, of Roswell, N. M.; Miss Sallie Hull and Miss Callie Hull, of Athens -- all of whom were present at his bedside and received his parting blessing. Judge Pope is now on his way to Athens, and will arrive here tomorrow.

Around his fireside, Mr. Hull's virtues shone most resplendent. He was an ideal husband and father, typifying all that is best in the beauties and glories of home.

Among his relatives present, at the time of his death, were his brother-in-law, former Governor Hoke Smith, and his sisters-in-law, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Harry Jackson, of Atlanta.

The funeral arrangements have not been fully perfected. The funeral will be held Saturday, the hour to be announced later and also the place.

The following gentlemen will act as pallbearers: Messrs. Joseph M. Hodgson, E. I. Smith, W. D. Cooper, R. C. Orr, C. M. Snelling and Billups Phinizy. The honorary pallbearers will be the trustees of the University of Georgia, the trustees of Lucy Cobb Institute, the members of the city board of education, the professors of the University of Georgia, the elders of the Presbyterian church and the deacons of that church.

Last night, at the session of the mayor and council, on being apprised of the death of Mr. Hull, a committee, consisting of Aldermen Snelling, Griffith and Rowe, was named to draft charitable resolutions on his death, and support them in council. The mayor and council, as a mark of respect for the deceased member of the board of education and as a tribute to one who was has so long been a prominent and indefatigable worker for the upbuilding of the city, will attend the funeral in a body.

Henry Hull, 1799-1882

Henry Hull came to Athens in 1803 when he was four years old, when his father, Hope Hill, a Methodist minister, relocated from Washington, Ga. In 1808 Hope caused to be erected on the campus a chapel, not to be used by one denomination more than others.

Henry graduated in the class of 1815, following which he went to Johns Hopkins and obtained an MD. He then practiced medicine in Athens and became a Trustee of the College in 1825. When the professorship of mathematics became vacant in 1829 he succeeded to it, preferring the study of mathematics to the distasteful drudgery of a country practice.

In 1801, John Milledge, Governor of Georgia, 1802-6, bought and donated to the College 3000 acres adjacent to the present campus, to the west. In 1842, during a financial crisis when the appropriation by the state legislature was discontinued, Dr. Hull was authorized by the Trustees to survey and plat these lands, which were advertised and sold. The sum obtained at that time was $8500, which allowed the college to continue, although three faculty members were terminated.

In 1846 Hull retired to a farm near Athens, where he lived until he was 83.

146 From "The Hulls of Georgia" by Augustus Longstreet Hull:

The early history of the family is wrapped in the obscurity which surrounds all frontier life. In an age when railroads were unknown, and letters were rarely exchanged even in the most populous communities, members of the same family drifted apart and were lost to each other as completely as if dead. My father, who was the source of my information, never knew any of his uncles and I do not recall if he ever named them all.

HOPEWELL HULL, an Englishman by birth, came to Maryland in 1755, and settled in Somerset county. By occupation he was a ship builder. He had five sons; of two of these nothing is known. The other three, HOPE, THOMAS and JOHN were soldiers in the Revolutionary Army, and their names are recorded as having received grants of land in Virginia in recognition of their services.

***

From "The Hull Family in America":

HOPEWELL HULL b. 1730 of Amboy, N.J....and Somerset Co., Md.

(There was some question of whether Hopewell Hull was born in England, as A. L. Hull clearly says he was, and, if so, if he was the son of John Hull, as "The Hull Family in America" claims [see below]. There seemed to be a disconnect here between the progeny of Joseph Hull and Hopewell Hull. On July 11, 2002, the results of the Hull Surname DNA Study showed that Gerry Glancy Hull's DNA did not match that of Richard Hull, grandfather of Joseph Hull. Later results showed that Thomas Marion Hull's and John Hart Marshall Hull's DNA match that of Gerry, not of Joseph. It appears, then, that we are not descended from Joseph Hull, and Hopewell Hull was probably born in England as family history has it. --Murrow B. Morris)

From The Hull Family in America:

360. HOPEWELL HULL, about 1730(???),
of Amboy, N. J., son of (152) John Hull,
probably learned the rudiments of boat building
working with his father at Amboy, Middlesex
Co., N. J., and completed his trade in England.
If so, he, soon after returning to America,
settled permanently in Somerset County, Md.
