Landed Estates
NUI Galway


The Hull family were resident in West Cork since the seventeenth century and there is evidence that they were closely connected with fishing ventures run by the Boyles, Earls of Cork, from that time. William Hull was among the principal lessors in the parish of Skull at the time of Griffith's Valuation. The estate of Richard Edward Hull amounted to over 2600 acres in county Cork in the 1870s.
