John Hull (merchant)
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."
Hull died in Boston on 1 October 1683. Hull Street in Boston is named for him, because he once owned the land there.
