My Patriot Ancestors – The Hulls

Here is proof I am descended from Commodore Issac Hull. Andrew Westbrook knew his brother, Colonel William Hull. He was introduced to Sally Hull, whom my grandfather, Royal Rosamond, says is his great grandmother, who married John Rose. According to the history books, and the genealogical study of the Harts and Hull family, Issac did not have children. I suspect this fact he had a daughter, was hidden by Anne Hart Hull in order to make her Hart family history appear pristine. These are Puritans. Did Issac have another wife? This renders my genealogical study, one of the most profound one in American History. My Rosy Family Tree is full of Real and True Patriots – and needs to be defended from imposters and jealous monsters who have threatened to do me harm!

In July 1812, when the American Army under Brigadier-General William Hull invaded Upper Canada, Westbrook was suspected of circulating Hull’s proclamation, urging local citizens to surrender. Daniel Springer of Delaware, a magistrate appointed by Talbot, reported to Major General Isaac Brock that Westbrook, along with friends Ebenezer Allan and Simon Zelotes Watson, were actively supporting the American cause, with Westbrook going so far as to present to Hull a list of names of local citizens who would not resist the invaders in return for their property being spared.

About Capt Joseph Hull

A Patriot of the American Revolution for CONNECTICUT with the rank of LIEUTENANT. DAR Ancestor # A059528

Lieut. Joseph, born in Derby in 1750; married for his second wife, widow Nichols, mother of Rev. Charles Nichols; Joseph entered the army in 1776, as Lieut, of Artillery; was taken prisoner at Fort Washington; is said to have shown great gallantry in the defense of this fort; he was not exchanged until 1778; after his exchange he again entered the army. In 1779 he was given command of a flotilla on Long Island Sound, consisting of several old whale boats, fitted out to annoy the enemy as opportunity offered. On one occasion a British armed schooner was lying in the sound; Joseph proposed to go out and take the schooner; that evening 20 men, under his command, embarked in a boat similar to those used in carrying wood the boat had the appearance of being loaded with wood- as they approached the schooner, the sentry on deck hailed Hull, who was steering; he answered the call but continued his course ’till quite near the schooner, when by a sudden movement, he ran close alongside; all hands sprang aboard the schooner; the British capt. aroused by the firing of the sentries, came on deck and was shot dead. The hatches were fastened down and the schooner conducted in triumph to jDerby. “This gallant soldier was the father of Commodore Isaac Hull. He engaged early in life in the West India trade and became familiar with a seaman’s life as well as that of a farmer. During his most active career, the whale fishery was carried on in the Sound in open boats, manned by four or six oarsmen, a steersman and a harpooner. This was a most dangerous calling, requiring a high degree of skill and perfect drill and unity of action. In this school his son Isaac took his first lessons in seamanship. One day Isaac was enter- taining a party of ladies with a sail on the river, in one of his father’s whale boats, when a sudden squall capsized the boat. By almost superhuman effort Isaac succeeded in saving the whole party of eight or ten ladies.”

Joseph’s coolness and presence of mind as well as fearlessness is shown in the following anecdote: While on his way to New Haven, just as he came to the top of the hill in West Haven, he saw some British officers advancing towards him; turning in his saddle he motioned as if for his company to hasten, and riding forward, commanded the British to surrender, they supposing the enemy to be near at hand, delivered up their swords.
