Immigrated to Weymouth in 1635 aboard the Speedwell with his father and step-mother. "Able to bear arms" in 1643 in Yarmouth.

The “Hull Family History” is credited with the account that he was active in the trade with the West Indies, owning a ship called The Catch and another called the Hopewell. Barnstable records show a history of activity on juries and the Assembly committe, including an appointment concerning the town charter. He als took a leading part in the purchase of town lands from the Indians, served one year as constable, and during the last six years of his life was a leading member of the town board of selectmen. He was a Quaker sympathizer, which got him fined on more than one occasion. (From profile formerly at http://the-merritts.com/Ancestor/I1952.html)
