[Transcribed by Dave Swerdfeger]




HOLBROOK.
    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:

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.
