Johann Martin Hullen was the third son of Johann Martin and Magdalene (Lena, née Arras) Hullen. The Hullen family originally came from Hanover about three generations earlier, moving to London where Johann's father (also Johann) was born in 1850. Johann (senior farmed at Waitohi), as did his brother Henry (Johann junior's uncle) before he moved to Cheviot. Johann (senior) and Henry both appear in the Cyclopedia of Canterbruy published in 1903.
Johann embarked just two months before his eldest brother, Henry Christian Hullen, was killed in action in France. Johann married Charlotte Elizabeth Mary Collett in 1927.
