A fellow Marvin researcher recently supplied me with a copy of the will of Edward-A Marvin, the father of Matthew-1 Marvin, the immigrant ancestor. I am in the process of transcribing it (it's written in the very hard-to-decipher "secretaty hand" of the 16th Century). While I have transcribed most of it, there are some problem words I am still working on. But I wanted to post what I had as soon as possible to allow others to have the information. I have retained the original spelling and punctuation; brackets indicate a word which is presently illegible to me. The will itself is filed in the Essex (England) Record Office ref: D/AC/W11-313.

Eden Farmhouse was built in 1593 by John Marvin just East of Great Bentley, and then called Edon or Dreybrockes. It was occupied by Edward Marvin and passed to his son Matthew. The front was remodeled in 1717 and seems to have been remodeled again in modern times. The interior beams may have been ship timbers. The large chimney is obscured in this view (see Profile photo).

The surname of MARVIN was a baptismal name 'the son of Marvin or Mervin' an ancient, although now forgotten personal name. During the Middle Ages, when people were unable to read or write, signs were needed for all visual identification. For several centuries city streets in Britain were filled with signs of all kinds, public houses, tradesmen and even private householders found them necessary. This was an age when there were no numbered houses, and an address was a descriptive phrase that made use of a convenient landmark. At this time, coats of arms came into being, for the practical reason that men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development of surnames, becoming hereditary in the same way. Early records of the name mention Mervin (without surname) rector of Chester-le-Street in the year 1085. Johannes Myrfin of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Since the dawn of civilisation the need to communicate has been a prime drive of all higher mankind. The more organised the social structure became, the more urgent the need to name places, objects and situations essential to the survival and existence of the social unit. From this common stem arose the requirements to identify families, tribes and individual members evolving into a pattern in evidence today. In the formation of this history, common usage of customs, trades, locations, patronymic and generic terms were often adopted as surnames. The demands of bureaucracy formally introduced by feudal lords in the 11th century, to define the boundaries and families within their fiefdoms, crystallized the need for personal identification and accountability, and surnames became in general use from this time onwards. Later instances of the name mention Danyell Ashpoole and Agnes Morfyn who were married at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in the year 1564. Mervin Perry was the vicar of Dyram, County Gloucester in the year 1699. The name is also spelt as MURFIN, MERVIN, MEVIN and MIRFIN
