    "JOHN HULL II lived at Canonicut and married Damaris, the daughter of John and Damaris (Arnold) Cary. He held various offices, among others that of Representative, in 1757. Their son was Oliver Hull. 95. CAPT. JOHN HULL, 1694-1765, mariner and farmer, of Connonicut Island (now Jamestown), R. I., son of (29) Capt. John and Alice Tiddeman Hull, was married Apr. 3, 1726, to Demaris Cary, daughter of John Cary and his wife Damaris Arnold of Bridgewater, Mass. He was a Captain in the merchant service. Warrants were offered to him and to his brothers to positions of prominence in the Royal Navy. These were declined, father and son preferring to remain consistent friends and pursue their avocations with the pacific principles they professed. Capt. Hull was made a freeman May 3, 1720, and became a prosperous business man and farmer as well as a successful mariner. In 1751 he was a deputy to the Grand Assembly and for many years enjoyed exclusive berry [ferry?] privileges between Newport and Jamestown. As he advanced in years he kept adding to the acres inherited from his father and died possessed of a large estate. Capt. Hull and Damaris Cary were married 'out of meeting,' her family being Congregationalists. The ceremony was performed by Capt. Hull's brother, Dr. Tiddeman Hull, then Chief Magistrate and Warden of the Island. John Cary, the father of Mrs. Hull, was the son of John Cary and his wife Abigail Allen of Bridgewater and the grandson of John Carey, or Carew, and his wife Elisabeth Godfrey, who came from Somersetshire, England, to Bridgewater, R. I., in 1634. The first John Carew was born near Bristol, England, about 1605; was liberally educated in France; for many years was the town clerk of Bridgewater, and was one of the first instructors in Latin to teach in the schools of America. Damaris Arnold, the wife of John Cary and mother of Demaris Cary Hull, was the daughter of Oliver Arnold and his wife Phebe Cook of Jamestown. Oliver Arnold was the son of Governor Benedict Arnold and his wife Damaris Wescott of Providence. Governor Benedict Arnold was an assistant for several years before he became governor, and was reputed to be the richest man in the colony. William Arnold, father of Governor Arnold, came from England to Hingham, New England, in 1635, and was one of the twelve associates of Roger Williams in the founding of Providence Plantation in 1636. Abigail Allyn Cary, the grandmother of Damaris Cary Hull, was the daughter of Samuel Allyn of Braintree, Mass., and he was the son of George Allyn, Sr., who sailed with Rev. Joseph Hull from Weymouth, Mar.20, 1635. Elizabeth Godfrey Hull, the great grandmother of Damaris Cary Hull, was the only child of Francis Godfrey and his wife Elizabeth, who settled in Duxbury before 1638, and soon removed to Bridgewater. Damaris Wescott, the great grandmother of Damaris Cary Hull, was the daughter of Stukeley Wescott who settled at Salem in 1636, joined the Baptists, and was excommunicated with Roger Williams, who names him as his first grantee in his deed to his twelve associates. He died at Warwick, R. I., Jan. 12, 1678. CHILDREN:
