"Reinold and Matthew Marvin Genealogy": He came with his father in the "Increase." He married, probably about 1650, Mary (?); she was living 28 March, 1707, at which time he made deeds of gift of all his estate to his sons Samuel and John, providing for her support; she probably died about 1709. He left no will, and the deeds mention only his daughter Hannah and a child of Elizabeth; they cover several pages in Norwalk Land rec. *(IV: 155 et seq.) He was in Norwalk certainly as early as 1651-2, and perhaps was one of the "thirty approved families" mentioned in the Agreement, 19 June, 1650, with roger Ludlow, then of Fairfield, CT., though not named in that document.
In the Deed made with Runckinheage and other "Norwake" indians, 15 Feb., 1651/2, his name is the eleventh. The consideration was "thirty fathum of Wampum," and various other articles, including kettles, coats, pipes, needles, etc.
His home-lot fronted on the road to Stamford, having the meeting-house lot on the east, his father's lot as its rear northern boundary, and Daniel Kellogg's lot on the west. His estate of "lands and accommodations," in 1665, was L135 ..10. He is frequently called "Mr." on the Town Records, and was often entrusted with important matters of public business, in church and civil affairs. He was town clerk in 1660, '61, and '62; townsman or selectman in 1600 and 1679, and perhaps in other years; some of the records are missing, but apparently, by his signature as witness to a deed, on 15 April, 1694, he served in that year also. He was "accepted to be made free" 13 Oct., 1664; the freeman's oath was ordered to be taken in the following May.

"Descendants of Reinold and Matthew Marvin": Matthew, youngest son of Edward and Margaret Marvin, was baptized in St. Mary's Church, Great Bentley, Essex, England, 26 March, 1600; Rev. Robert Dernell was then its rector. His father's will gave him the "mentchon house called Edons alias Dreybrockes, and ij Croftes of land called Hartles and Brocken Heddes," on the condition that he paid his mother yearly during her life "the fulle sume of Sexe Poundes," in default of which it was to pass to his bother Reinold with a like condition. He was then about fifteen years old. He probably resided there with his mother until her death in May, 1633.
He married (1) about 1622 Elizabeth (?), born about 1604, judging from her age as given when she went to America; she died in Hartford, probably about 1640; and from the ages of his younger children, certainly not later than 1647. rebecca is thought to have been Elizabeth's youngest child, as she is named in her father's will, but not in that of his second wife, who mentions her own children then living. He married (2), about 1647, Alice, widow of John Bouton, born about 1610; in her will, 1 Dec., 1680, she calls herself "aged about seventy;" she made oath to the inventory of her husband's estate 17 Dec., 1680, and died soon after; the inventory of her own estate is dated "the last of January, 1680/1."
Matthew sailed from London in the "Increase," Robert Lea, master, having proved, 15 April, 1635, that his party had "taken the oathes of Allegeance and Supremacie: As also being conformable to the Government and discipline of the Church of England, whereof they brought testimony.. Cert. from ye Justices and ministers where there abodes have latlie been."
He had been a "sydeman" at St. mary's in 1621; "overseer" in 1627, and senior warden in 1628. He is last mentioned there 22 Aug. 1633, when "William Littleburye, the servant of Matthew Meruin, was buried."
The record of his departure calls him "husbandman, aet. 25," and names his wife and children "Elizabeth Marvynn, vor, 31; Elizabeth Marvinn 31 ( a clerical error for 13); Matthew Marvynn, 8; marie Marvynn, 6; Sara marvynn, 3; Hanna Marvynn 1/2." Some of his fellow-passengers appear as his fellow townsmen in Hartford, Farmington and Norwalk. The "Increase" sailed about the middle of April, and reached New England about the first of June. Where he spent the first few months after his arrival, is not known. His name is on the monument in honor of the first settlers of hartford, the first of whom arrived there about November, 1635, and Matthew was one of "the twelve very earliest emigrants whose names are known," and who formed the company known as Adventurers, to whom belonged "Venturers' Field." He resided on the corner of Village (now Pleasant) and Front streets, the lot fronting east.
