Hull, Mass. Congregational Church

Collection History

Please note that as of January 2022, the Hull, Massachusetts. Congregational Church records, 1725-1767, and all future digital collections are now hosted on the library's new digital archive.

The First Church in Hull (formerly Nantasket) was founded in 1644. The volume below comprises handwritten transcriptions from the First Church's records dating from 1725-1767. These include listings of baptisms, marriages, and deaths. The records were copied in 1847 by Charles J. F. Binney from the records of Rev. Ezra Carpenter for 1725 to 1746, and the records of Rev. Samuel Veazie for 1753 to 1767. The earlier records for this church (1644-1725) were destroyed in a fire sometime before 1847.

The original manuscripts in this collection are owned by our project partners, the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Further information about the collection can be found in the NEHGS catalog.
