"From Gene Rooks.
Robert Hulme II was referred to as a husbandman. He had inherited land in Reddish in the Parish of Manchester from his father, and passed it on to another son, Robert, mentioning that "it has been held ... by my predecessors tyme out of mynd". He and Kathering had nine children, baptized at either Didsbury or Stockport. John and Samuel graduated from Oxford, and possibly Obadiah attended there, also. Obadiah wrote in a letter in 1675 "First, I must remember my honored parents, who were faithful in their generation, and of good report among men, and brought up their children tenderly, and honorably. Three sons they brought up at the University of Oxford; but the most part of their care was to inform and instruct them in the fear of the Lord, and to that end gave them much good counsel, carrying them often before the Lord by earnest prayer.""
Robert and Katherine (Johnson) Hulme, farmers, were married at Stockport, near Manchester, on the 8th day of October, 1605. He inherited his father's lands. His burial was at Stockport on 12 Nov 1640. His will, dated 20 August 1640, was proved at Chester 24 November 1649 by Robert Hulme, one of the executors, power being reserved to the other executor, Hugh Johnson, whom the testator styles "brother-in-law". By this will, Obadiah Hulme was given as his legacy ten pounds being dependent on the death, under age, of a younger brother. Robert Hulme bequeathed to his son Robert "my estate and interest," etc., "in the messuage in which I now dwell and which has been held," etc., "by my predecessors tyme out of mynd", hoping "my right worshippfull master Edward Cooke esq. will dale mercifullie with him.".
Katherine (Johnson) Hulme was buried at Stockport 8 Sep 1630.

1. John, bpt at Stockport 3 May 1607; matriculated at Brasenose College, Oxford, as son of Robert Hulme of Reddish, "pleb.", 18 Nov. 1625, aged 17. As he is not named in his father's will it is probable that he died before 1640.
