    Matthew (Marvin), bap. at Great Bentley 26 March 1600. He received from his father the mansion house called "Edons alias Dreybrockes," which had been Edward Marvin's dwelling-house. He was a "sydeman" of the parish of Great Bentley in 1621, overseer in 1627, and senior warden in 1628. He was still in Great Bentley in Aug. 1633. He and his family sailed for New England on the Increase from London in April 1635, and they apparently landed early in June. Matthew Marvin seems to have been among the very earliest settlers of Hartford, Conn., who arrived there in November 1635, He owned land at Farmington, and may have lived there a short time. He was at Norwalk in 1651, and there he presumably died. His will was dated 26 Dec. 1678, and the inventory of his estate was taken 13 July 1680, so he died between those dates. He m. (1) by 1622 Elizabeth -----, b. ca, 1604; d. ca. 1642. He m. (2) ca. 1647 Alice (-----) Bouton, widow of John Bouton. She was b. ca. 1610, and d. between 17 Dec. 1680 and 9 Jan. 1680/1. Matthew Marvin had at least seven children by his first marriage, and two by his second. Accounts of this family are in Descendants, pp. 287-298, and Donald Lines Jacobus, Families of Old Fairfield, vol. 1. pp. 402-403. The best biography of Matthew Marvin is in Mary Walton Ferris, Dawes-Gates Ancestral Lines, vol. 2 (Gates and Allied Families) (Chicago, 1931), pp. 575-578.
