  • Name Matthew MARVIN  [1
    • "Descendants of Reinold and Matthew Marvin": Matthew was chosen pound-keeper on the east side 2 Dec. 1724; his will, of which his brother Samuel and his "brother-in-law" David DeForest" were the executors, was dated 3 Dec. 1744; inventory L1911..15s..11d.,"old Tenner money." He left to his eldest son, Matthew, his "silver-headed sword, over and above what I give to the rest of my sons," which was doubtless that which he used while captain of the Wilton train-band, in which command he had been confirmed by the Legislature, May, 1743. He was interred in the Sharp's Hill burying-ground. After his death his children were, in 1747, made wards of their step-father, but 4 April, 1749, Matthew, then 15, chose his uncle Samuel as his guardian. [1]
