Tutor Personalities of Hull


The City of Hull is proud to boast many famous and distinguished personalities, both past and present. There are also one or two infamous characters we'd probably much sooner hide away! There are a great many more we've forgotten, so please add a personality to our lists.


Died Name Bio
1550   William Blaydes In social and political terms, the Blaydes were prominent among the High Street families in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, providing Hull five Chamberlains, five Sheriffs and three Mayors.
