Hull, Thomas (1863–1950)

Mr. Thomas Hull, who died on Monday in his 87th year, was a member of one of Hobart's pioneer families.

His grandfather, George Hull, sold to Lady Franklin the land on which the Lady Franklin Museum is built.

George Hull owned the properties Barossa and Tolosa. He built his home on Tolosa, after which Tolosa St., Glenorchy, is named.

Mr. Hull, who died at his residence in Tolosa St., spent nearly all his life in the Glenorchy district.

As a boy he often met and talked with Martin Cash, the bushranger.
