Abstract:
Graham Tull Richardson’s name reflects a common practice during the nineteenth century: naming a child after the family doctor, John Graham Tull. What follows the origin of Graham Richardson’s name is a discussion of Dr. Tull’s heritage. Noted events included: arrival of Dr. Tull’s great-great-great grandfather, Reverend Dr. Charles Chauncy, in Plymouth in 1638; his mother Eliza Graham’s marriage to Isaac Tull in 1814; and the burial of Dr. Tull’s daughter, Julia, in Cedar Grove Cemetery in 1934.
