  • Name Matthew MARVIN  [1, 2, 3
    • "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. [1]
