My genealogical researches have uncovered dozens of devout ancestors. This is the fourth installment of a series of posts titled “Doing God’s Work: Our Families’ Faithful”, documenting the lives of those who served God.
In the previous post of this series, I presented the life and times of William Christian, a vicar on the Isle of Man. This one focuses on the life of Rev. Joseph Hull.
Joseph Hull, my 12th great-grandfather, was born in 25 April 1594, in Crewkerne, Somerset, England. He was the youngest child of Thomas Hull, a yeoman, and Joane Peson/Pysing (spelling varies).
My genealogical researches have uncovered dozens of devout ancestors. This is the second installment of a series of posts titled “Doing God’s Work: Our Families’ Faithful”, documenting the lives of those who served God.
In the previous post of this series, I discussed the life of Begga (my 40th great-grandmother), who was named a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. Now I will focus on Stephen Bachiler (my spouse’s 11th great-grandfather), a rip-roaring, rabble-rousing reverend.
Rev. Stephen Bachiler was my spouse’s 11th great-grandfather. Unlike many of our family’s faithful, this man of the cloth was no stranger to scandal.
Born in 1561 in England, nothing is known of Stephen Bachiler’s childhood, including the names of his parents. What is known is that on 17 November 1581, he enrolled at Oxford University. He graduated from Oxford University’s St. John’s College five years later in 1586. He then entered the clergy, becoming the vicar of Wherwell, Hampshire in 1587.
