Tristram² HULL (Joseph¹), b abt 1624 @ Northleigh, Devonshire; came with his father Joseph abt 1635 to Mass. Became a sea captain. He m. abt 1643, aged 19, (some say in England) to Blanch _________. They had at least 6 children all b Barnstable, Mass, viz: Mary, Sarah, Sarah, Joseph, John, Hannah. The son Capt. John HULL, who m. Alice TEDDEMAN, made his will dated 19 Jan 1733, prvd 9 Feb foll. @ Jamestown, RI, in which he ordered the executors "to take care that my cousin Mark RIDLEY, does not suffer or come to want." A check of his siblings and all aunts and uncles, does not reveal a marriage to a RIDLEY. Could his mother Blanch have been a RIDLEY, or had a sister who m. a RIDLEY & had a son Mark ? Hopeful this will lead to the parentage of Blanch.
