Hull Hope

Hull Hope a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born March 13, 1763, in Worcester County, on the eastern shore of Maryland. His early education was rather neglected, and he was apprenticed to a carpenter at Baltimore. In this city he was converted, and entered the itinerancy in 1785. He was first appointed to Salisbury, North Carolina. With the exception of a brief period spent in New England, his time was given to the introduction of Methodism in the Southern States. His last appointment was the Savannah Circuit, Georgia. In 1794 he traveled with bishop Asbury, and located in 1795. He died October 4,1818, at Athens, Ga. Hull possessed wonderful power over those who came within his influence, and was one of the most eloquent ministers in the Methodist Episcopal Church in his day. His piety was deep, and many were converted under his labors. During his active work in the ministry, he secured for himself a pretty good education, and was at one time able even to assume the duties of teacher of Latin. He was also one of the first and strongest supports of the University of Georgia, which was founded during his residence at Athens. — Stevens, Memorials of Methodism, chap. 9; Boehm, History Reminisc. p. 366; Sprague, Annals Azet.
