Facts and Events
John Hull (18 December 16241 October 1683) was the leading merchant and mintmaster of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He married Judith Quincy (1626–1695), daughter of Judith Pares (d. 1654) and Edmund Quincy, progenitors of the prestigious Quincy family.
Among his apprentices was Jeremiah Dummer who became the first American-born silversmith. In January 1658 he and several other men made a large land acquisition in Rhode Island known as the "Pettaquamscutt Purchase." Hull Street in Boston is named for him, because he once owned the land there.
