"The English Ancestry of Reinold & Matthew Marvin" by William T. R. Marvin
Roger Mervyn of St. Stephen's Parish, Ipswich, in the County of Suffolk was born certainly as early as 1430, since he left a son who was old enough to be his executor when he died in 1475. His wife was Matilda____________.
John Mervyn, son of Roger, was apparently living in Ipswich when his father died. As he as made executor of his father's will in 1475, we place his birth about 1453. The date of his death is unknown.
John Mervy, son of John, was born about 1480
Reynolde, or Reynold, Mervyn, son of John was born about 1514. He married Johan__________, who survived him. He died in 1554-55.
Edward Marvin, son of Reynold, was born about 1552 in Ramsey, England and married Margaret_______. He was a man of considerable property.
Matthew Marvin was baptized a Great Bently, England 23 March 1659-60. Salisbury's "Family Histories and Genealogies" says: "Mathew Marvin embarked with his family for New England 15 April 1635, on the "Increase," having taken the oaths of Allegiance and Supremacie. It appears the he was then 35 years of age. He is called "husband-man," and his party consisted of his wife, Elizabeth, aged 31, daughter Elizabeth, 11, son Mathew, 8, daughters Marie, 6, Sara 3 and Hanna 1/2."
Mathew settled in Hartford, Connecticut, where he was an original proprietor in 1635. He died about 1680.
