    Notes 
    • 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.
