  • Name Zechariah MARVIN  [1
    • "Descendants of Reinhold and Matthew Marvin": He was admitted a freeman 14 Sept. 1731; elected lister in 1729, and again 27 June 1743; grand-juryman, 24 Dec. 1733, 10 Dec 1739, 30 Dec 1748; fence-viewer, 29 Dec 1736, 18 Dec 1746; treasurer, Dec. 1742, and annually for many years after, with hardly an exception; his last election was 11 Dec. 1777; the following year John Lay, 2d, was "appointed" to that position. Zachariah and his wife united with the Lyme church in August, 1731; he was chosen deacon in January, 1741, at the same time with his cousin, Dea. Reinold. In October, 1772, he presented a petition to the Legislature, claiming "that for twenty years he had had a fishery in a brook leading to Black Hall Pond," but his rights had been obstructed by weirs, etc., and asking for redress. In response, the Legislature passed a law by which he was allowed to fish "in said brook on his own land (!) from Monday morning until sun-rising on Friday, every week." Matthew Marvin might fish on his own land from Thursday morning until sun=rising Friday, every week; one other person was given a similar privilege from Wednesday morning to Thursday morning, and all others forbidden to fish there.
