Marvin of Boston. 1904] p 287 The Matthew Marvin Line. 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 alles(alias) Dreybrockes, and ij Croftes of land called Harles 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 brother 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." p 288 Matthew sailed from London in the "Increase," Robert Lea, maters, 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 wher there abodes have iatlie 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. 35," and names his wife and children "Elizabeth Marvynn, vxor, 31; Elizabeth Marvinn 31 [a clerical error for 13]; Matthew Marvynn, 8; Marie Marvynn, 6; Sara Marvynn, 3; Hanna Marvynn, 1/2."
