the kingdom: manufactures do not
flourish here; the expressing of oil
from linseed, is the most considerable.
Hull is not remarkable for the eminent
men to whom it has given birth ; the
celebrated Andrew Marvel, long the
representative of the borough, was born
at Winestead, near Patrington, though
frequently considered as a native of
Hull; the Rev. W. Mason, the poet,
and Capt. Edward Thompson, author
of some pleasing naval songs, of which
“ The Topsails Shiver in the Wind,”
was once very popular, were both na-
tives. The population of Hull, as ap-
pears in the parliamentary returns, does
not give a proper idea of its magnitude,
as the adjoiningparishofSculcoates, not
to be distinguished by a stranger from
the town itself, contains 10,449 inhabi-
tants ; which, if added to those of Hull,
make the entire population, 39,0

Hull, E. R. (6) a river which takes
its rise in the Wolds, a little to the
north of Driffield, and pursuing a
southern course, passes Beverley a mile
to the east; a canal from that place,
here joins the river, which after a fur-
ther course of about twelve miles, falls
into the Humber, and contributes to
form the port of Kingston upon Hull.

the township and parish of Cotting-
ham, division of Hunsley Beacon, 3

south by the Humber, and on the east
by the river Hull; it contains 55

Humber, E.R. (9) a river formed
by the junction of the Ouse and Trent,
the Abus of Ptolemy; it is here a mile
in breadth, running easterly; it washes
the port of Hull, where it receives the
river of the same name ; then taking
a direction to the south-east, and widen-
ing into a vast estuary six or seven
miles across, it disembogues itself into
the German ocean; the Humber, thus
receiving all the waters of Yorkshire,
with an inconsiderable exception, from
the Ouse, and most of those of the mid-
land counties from the Trent, commands
the inland navigation of a very extensive
and commercial part of England.
