George was a "surveyor, Indian trader, magistrate, statesman and founder of a prominent branch of the Hull family in America". (Weygant). His brothers, Joseph and William both graduated from St. Mary's Hall at Oxford and were ministers of the Church of England. Further evidence of his background, his wife was daughter of a "well-to-do yeoman of Stockland" (Ibid) in Dorsetshire.

George sailed for the American colonies from Plymouth 30 Mar 1629 / 30 on the "Mary and John"; his youngest son, Joshua was baptised at Crewkerne 7 months after this date, indicating Thomasene and the young family were left in England while George became part of the "Great Migration". He shared the voyage with friends George and John Ludlow and future son-in-law Humphrie Pinney. He was a short time in Boston and went on to help settle the town of Dorchester where he was on the first board of selectmen and was made a freeman 4 Mar 1632/3 and was town's first repres to the General Court.

In 1636 he moved to Windsor Connecticut and surveyed both Windsor and Wethersfield. In exchange for this service, he received his choice of home lots in Windsor where he again represented his town in the General Court. It was here in 1638 that he and Pinney, through the graces of the General Court, received a monopoly on the beaver trade on the Connecticut River.

In 1638 he followed his friend (Stiles, too says that he was "a citizen of worth and distinction.") and George Ludlow, now governor of Connecticut, to Fairfield where he became the General Court designated assistant to the governor. In 1651, '53, '54 he was appointed by the governor as associate magistrate for the towns by the seaside. He was apparently well connected on the political scene of the blossoming colonies; Cotton Mather mentions him as does Connecticut state historian Trumbull who groups him "with those whose names are worthy of perpetuation.
