John Hull (18 December 1624 – 1 October 1683) was the leading merchant and mintmaster of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He married Judith Quincy (1626–1695), daughter of Judith Pares (d. 1654) and Edmund Quincy (1602-1636), progenitors of the prestigious Quincy family.
Among his apprentices was Jeremiah Dummer who became the first American-born silversmith. In January 1658 he and several other men made a large land acquisition in Rhode Island known as the "Pettaquamscutt Purchase."
