The Pursgloves of Hull - [HULL]

The town of Hull was developed in the 12th century as a woollen market for Meaux Abbey in order to export wool and cloth.  It was awarded a Royal Charter in 1299 to trade as a market town and became known as Kingston upon Hull. 

This city is well positioned as a key harbour town by the River Hull, on the northern side of the estuary of the River Humber, giving ease of access to the North Sea and Europe.  Fishing an Whaling have accompanied export and import as major industries.

Holy Trinity church dates to about 1300 and it is the largest parish church in England.
