    JOHN BOUTON, son as is supposed, of the Count Nichols Bouton, was a Huguenot and during the existence of the great persecution fled to England, where the Government were offering to send emigrants to America, on condition they would swear allegiance to the Crown of England. A registry of such emigrants was kept at London, a copy of which has been examined by the compiler of this work, and as only one person by the Bouton name is found on that registry, embracing a period of 100 years, from 1600 to 1700, it is supposed that said person was the John bouton of whom this account is traced, and that all the families of Boutons or Boughtons in this country prior to 1700, were descended from said John Bouton, who embarked from Gravesend, England, in the barque ASSURANCE, July, 1635, and landed at Boston, Massachusetts, in December, 1635, aged 20 years; whether married or not at the time is not known.

    He married 1st, Joan Turney, and lived in Boston and Watertown, Mass., and early in the settlement of Hartford, Conn., moved to that place, and again in 1651, soon after the commencement of the settlement of Norwalk, he removed to that place, where his wife Joan soon died, and where he became an influential citizen, and in 1671, and for several years subsequent, he was a representative in the general court of the colony of Connecticut, and served his townsmen in many official capacities in Norwalk. He m. 2nd at Norwalk Ct., Jan. 1, 1656, Abigail Marvin, (dau. of Matthew Marvin, who came from London, Eng.) She was born at Hartford about 1640 and died at Norwalk, about 1672. He married 3d, at Norwalk about 1673, Mrs. Mary Stevenson, widow of Jonathan Stevenson, who was killed in a swamp fight with the Indians near Norwalk.

    He gave land to his sons John and Matthew, as appears on the Norwalk town records, and at his death, which occurred at Danbury, Ct., 174-5, he left in estate at Norwalk, a part of which has remained in possession of his descendants until the present time, July,1888, now over 200 years.

    "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.
