HOLBROOK to LYMAN
[Transcribed by Dave Swerdfeger]
JOHN, emigrated from Derby, England, and settled at Oyster Bay, Long Island.
2. DEA. ABEL, son of John Holbrook, was the first male child born at Oyster Bay, L. I. in 1653, and came to Milford, Conn., where he married Anne Meriam (?). Her name on the Derby records is written Hannah. He settled on the farm now known as the " Swift farm " about 1676, having received a grant of land a little before that date. He kept an ordinary (tavern) several years, and was a prominent citizen in the town. His wife Hannah died Oct. 20, 1740, aged 72, and he died May 30, 1747, in his 94th year. Children:
3. ABEL, JR., son of Dea. Abel and Hannah Holbrook; m. Tabitha Wooster, Jan. 29, 1723. Children:

8. JOHN, son of Dea. Abel and Hannah Holbrook; m. Abigail, dau. of Serg. Abel Gunn of Derby Aug. 27, 1723. His residence was adjoining the old Episcopal grave-yard. He and his wife Abigail gave the ground for this grave yard and the site for the first Episcopal church. He was one of the reliable, successful men of his day and died June 5, 1752, aged 52 years. Hence there is an error on page 195 of this book, in which it is stated that he withdrew from the Episcopal church at the beginning of the Revolution. It must have been his son, who was the Capt. John complained of by Dr. Mansfield, as given in Dr. E. E. Beardsley's History of the Episcopal Church in Conn. Children:

HULL.(Written as Hulls 100 yrs. ago.)
RICHARD, came from Derbyshire, Eng., and was made free-man at Dorchester, Mass., in April, 1634, and removed to New Haven, Conn., in 1639. His son John was baptized in 1640. This John the Derby family claim to be their ancestor. Judge Savage thinks John, the son of Andrew, was the settler in Derby. Richard and Andrew were brothers, so said, and each of them had a son John, apparently, one of these settled in Stratford and Derby, the other settled in Killingworth, and was the surgeon In King Philip's war, instead of John of Derby.
JOHN, son of Richard Hull, was accepted as a planter at Stratford in 1661, and received grants of lands in 1667; and was accepted as an inhabitant at Derby in 1668, receiving a grant of land, but does not appear to have removed his family thither until 1675. He became a prominent man at once in the transactions of the town; was employed by the town to build the first parsonage house, and also the first corn and flour mill in the town; built two if not three dwelling houses for himself and his sons; was on the building committee of the first meeting-house, and probably was the chief director of the work. He acquired considerable landed property with the mill, in the town, all of which, apparently, he gave to his sons, John and Joseph in 1696. He removed to Wallingford in 1687, where he received a tract of about seven hundred acres of land from that town, where he is called Doctor, and where he died Dec. 6, 1711.
