Seventeenth Century Hull

Source: “Seventeenth Century Hull,” New England Historical And Genealogical Register 143[1989]:43.

Samuel [Goold], b. probably at Hull ca. 1684; d. at sea ca. July 1707. On 20 Dec. 1710 Robert Gould, yeoman, was granted administration on all goods, chattels, rights, and credits to his son Samuel Gould late of Hull, cordwinder, deceased (Suffolk Co. Probate file 3284). Samuel Mattocks, tailor, and John Nichols, joiner, both of Boston, were sureties. The probate file includes a deposition by John Binney, dated 20 Dec. 1710, that ‘on or about June or July 1707, his brother Isaac Binney, master of the sloop Mary, sailed from New England, bound for Barbadoes, in which vessel Samuel Gold went, one of the company … the said vessel never arrived at Barbadoes, as the deponent understands by all the inquiry he could make, nor could he ever hear of his brother since his departure from New England … it is generally believed by all persons that the said vessel and company were lost in their passage to Barbadoes.’
