, nephew of the above, was born at Venice in 1408. He pursued his first studies under Guarini of Verona, and continued them at Padua, where he took his doctor’s degree. Notwithstanding he put on the senator’s robe at the age of nineteen, yet he still prosecuted his studies under Francis Philelphi and George de Trebisonde, whom he took into his house, and retained there, till pope Calixtus III. sent for him to Rome, and employed him in several commissions. Upon his return to Venice, he was sent ambassador to Lewis XI. of France, who made him a knight in 1461. He went afterwards several times ambassador to Rome from the republic; and, in 1467, was made commandant of Padua. He afterwards became a member of the council of ten, and bore the dignity of Sage Grand no hers than twenty times. In 1474, he was elected procurator of St. Mark, a post next to that of doge. He died in 1489.

There was another of this name, George Tully, son of
Isaac Tully of Carlisle, who, we conjecture, was a nephew of
the above Dr. Tully. He was educated at Queen’s college,
Oxford, and was beneficed in Yorkshire. He died rector
of Gateside near Newcastle, subdean of York, &c. in 1697.
He was a zealous writer against popery, and was suspended
for a sermon he preached and published in 1686, against
the worship of images, and had the honour, as he terms it
himself, to be the first clergyman in England who suffered
in the reign of James II. “
in defence of our religion against
popish superstition and idolatry.” He was one of the translators of “
Plutarch’s Morals,” “
Cornelius Nepos,” and
Suetonius,” all which were, according to the phrase in
done into English by several hands.” Thomas Tully,
author of the funeral sermon on the death of bishop Rainbow, which is appended to Banks’s Life of that prelate, was,
we presume, of the same family as the preceding. He died
chancellor of Carlisle about 1727.
