About the Hull Family Association title image

The Hull Family Association (HFA) is a non-profit association, organized in October 1985 by a small group of Hull* descendants from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, and Colorado to develop, preserve, and exchange information on Hull history and genealogy in the United States.

Note: This website contains no publicly available information. All genealogical data is maintained off-line, and is provided to HFA members only. We regret that, due to constraints of time and effort, we cannot respond to non-member requests for genealogical information. A list of genealogical benefits for members is available here. Non-members are welcome to submit queries using this query form.

Our nationwide membership continues to grow steadily, and we currently have almost 500 active members. An HFA website was originally constructed by David L. Hull (HFA Member #0738) in late 1998. The present website was created by Douglas C. Hull (HFA Member #1153) in late 2001, and given its current layout in mid-2006 by David Hughes (HFA Member #1444). The HFA logo was designed by John Ware Hull (HFA Member #0337).

Who Are the Hulls?

Many are descendants of Hulls who came to America from England in the 1630s. However, many other origins are also represented, including other English, Scottish, Irish, Canadian, and German/Dutch/Swiss people named Hull.

HFA Provides Unique Genealogical Opportunities

Many of the association’s members have been able to learn more about their own Hull history through contact with other HFA members. Our HFA Genealogist has compiled a list of more than 20 early (prior to the mid-1800s) immigrants as well as more than 425 other immigrants, and their descendants, who share our surname. Historical and genealogical issues were covered in the HFA Journal (1990–2018).

Meet Other Hulls

The HFA sponsors an annual meeting and reunion—the perfect opportunity to meet Hull relatives and other Hulls. This and other events and activities are announced to members. Members also receive access to a “members only” website that includes member contact information, a calendar, and Hull genealogical resource information.

Many benefits are offered to members. Additional association details are available from our membership secretary:
