The Hulse family of
First Generation -
Richard Hulse, was
born about 1640/1645, possibly in England, and died between 4 July and
21 August 1696 in Brookhaven, Long Island,
New York. His first wife's name is unknown, but was the mother of his
sons Thomas, Richard, Joseph, and John. She died between 1675 and 1680.
He then was married for the second time, before 6 June 1681, to Hannah
Beardsley (also recorded as Hannah Dayton in the 1692/3 will of Walter
who left Richard a portion of his estate.) No issue is known by this
marriage. Richard first appeared in local records, 21 September 1670,
a witness to the deed for land at Brookhaven sold by Andrew Miller to
Smith. Land was granted to him by the town in 1676, but no other record
him has been found until he appeared in the will of Walter Jones when
four children were specifically mentioned.
