From the WorldConnect Database: "Sanford-Shulsen Family", by Evelyn Beran:

"On 13 November 1615 he was mentioned as son in the will of Edward Mervyn of Great Bentley, receiving his father's mansion house called "Edons alias Dreybrockes", and croftes of land called "Hartles and Brocken Heddes," on the condition that he paid his mother L6 yearly during her life. He probably lived with his mother until her death in May 1633.

Matthew was "sydeman" of the parish of Great Bentley in 1621, overseer in 1627, and senior warden in 1628.

On 1 March 1622/1623 brother Matthew was mentioned in the will of Edward Marvin of Thorington.

On 22 August 1633 William Littleburye, the servant of Matthew Mervin, was buried at Great Bentley. This is the last mention of Matthew at Great Bentley.

Matthew Marvin, aged 35, with his wife Elizabeth, aged 31, and five children, left London in April 1635 on the "Increase", arriving in New England in early June. Savage records the custom house record calls Marvin a husbandman, and gives the children as Elizabeth called age 31 in the record [probably an error for 11], Matthew 8, Mary 6, Sarah 3 and Hannah 6 months.

Matthew Marvin appears to have been one of the very earliest settlers of Hartford CT, who arrived there in November 1635. He was in the company known as Adventurers, to whom "Venturers Field" belonged. Matthew was surveyor of highways 1639-1647. In 1648/9 he was voted 10s for killing a wolf. He owned land at Farmington CT and may have lived there a short time.

The Public Records of the Colony of Connecticut show that on 6 February 1639 the estate of Mr. Oldams owed Mathew Marvine L1 6s 8d. On 12 September 1644 Matthew Marvin entered a plea against Peter Bassaker. And on 24 April 1649 Marvin entered a plea for defamation against Mathew Beckwith and won damages of L50.

Matthew was one of the original grantees of Norwalk, and went there in 1650/1651. His home lot in Norwalk was next to the meeting house, and he was frequently called "Mr," the prefix of respect. He was a wheelwright. Matthew served as Deputy for Norwalk to the Connecticut General Court May 1654. He was freed from watching and training 19 May 1659.

Before 1653, Matthew Marvin sold to Nathaniel Kellogg his dwelling house and land in Farmington.

On 7 November 1666 Matthew Marvin was appointed guardian of Ruth Bouton, to care for her until she turned 18.

He appears on the 1669 list of freemen: "A true and perfect List of all the Freemen appertaininge unto the plantation of Norwake. Taken this 11th of October, 1669, and to be presented unto the Honored Court assembled ... Mathw Marvin senr".

On 23 December 1674 Matthew Marvin deeded to daughter Rachel, wife of Samuel Smith, "50 pounds worth of commonage lot, halfe my home-lot, etc." (Norwalk Land Records, folio 61)

The will of Matthew Marvin, age about 80, is dated 20 December 1678. Inventory was taken 12 July 1680. The will bequeaths: "unto my dearly beloved wife Alice Marvin, the sum of twenty pounds as her owne true and proper estate: for her to will and order as she pleaseth..." It names son Matthew of Norwalk, grandchild Matthew son of Matthew Marvin, son Samuel Smith, son John Bowton and my daughter Abigail his wife, grandchild Richard Bushnell, Francis Bushnell; four daughters: Mary Adgate of Norwich, Hannah Semer, Abigail Bouton, and Rebecca Clark of Farmington.

Matthew Marvin: christened 26 Mar 1600/01 in St. Mary’s Great Bentley, Essex, England. He died 20 Dec 1678 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. He may have married about 1622, Elizabeth _______. She was born about 1604, probably in Essex, England, and died May 1640 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. He married (second) about 1647, Mrs. Alice Bouton. She was born about 1610 in England and died between 17 Dec 1680 (the date of her will) and 9 Jan 1680/81 (the date of her inventory) at Hartford, Connecticut, the widow of John Bouton of Hartford, Connecticut. She had come to America with her first husband in 1635 on the ship “Assurance.”

[Research Note: It is widely reported that the wife of Matthew Marvin was Elizabeth Gregory, the daughter of Henry Gregory of Nottingham, England and Abigail Goody. This Elizabeth Gregory was born, however, about 1623, and married, in 1639, after her arrival in America, Richard Webb of Cambridge, MA. Richard Webb arrived in New England in 1630, a passenger on Winthrop’s fleet. He died 15 Mar 1675 in Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut. Elizabeth died 24 Jan 1680/81 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. After living in Hartford, he moved to Norwalk, Connecticut. Elizabeth was administrator of his estate. If Matthew Marvin did marry an Elizabeth Gregory, it would have to be a different and older person, one probably born around 1603. There is no documentation that she was actually a Gregory, so this remains unproven. Many family trees, however, continue to try to squeeze her early birth date into a list of the much later births of Henry Gregory’s children.]

Children of Matthew and Elizabeth:

1. Elizabeth Marvin: christened 15 Sep 1622 in Great Bentley, Essex, England. She died about 1689 (or 1708) in Norwich, New London, Connecticut. She possibly married (first), before 1643, Thomas Gregory. She married (second), before 1650, John Olmstead. He was born 16 Feb 1616 in Fairfield, Essex, England and died before 2 Aug 1686 in Norwich, Fairfield, Connecticut. She left no issue.

2. Matthew Marvin: christened 8 Nov 1626 in Great Bentley, Essex, England. He died 1712 in Norwalk Fairfield, Connecticut. He married about 1650, probably in Hartford, Connecticut, Mary Brush, born about 1628 and died about 1709 or 1712 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. He came to New England with his father in 1635 and followed him to both Hartford and Norwalk, Connecticut. He was one of the original proprietors of Norwalk. He had six children, including a son Matthew who married Rhoda St. John and died without leaving children. He also had Sarah who married Thomas Betts in Jan 1680; Samuel; Hannah, who married Epenetus Platt; Elizabeth, who married Joseph Platt, 6 Nov 1700; John, born 2 Sep 1678.

3. Mary Marvin: christened 16 Dec 1628 in Great Bentley, Essex, England. She died 26 Mar 1712/13 in Norwich, New London, Connecticut. (She married first John Olmstead.)? She married second, 11 Oct 1648, Richard Bushnell. He was born 20 Apr 1623 in Horsham, Suffolk, England, and died 1660 in Saybrook, Connecticut. She married (third) in 1680, Thomas Adgate of Saybrook, Connecticut (She was his 2nd wife). Thomas Adgate died in 1707 at an advanced age.

4. Sarah Marvin: christened 27 Dec 1631 in Great Bentley, Essex, England and died 16 Jan 1702 in Stratford, Fairfield, Connecticut. She married (first) William Ensign. He was born about 1630. She married (second) 4 Oct 1648, William Goodrich (The Younger). He was born before 13 Feb 1621/22, in or near Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England. He was christened 14 Nov 1623 at St. Mary’s, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England. He died before 4 Nov 1676 in Wethersfield, Connecticut. She married (third) William Curtis, who was born about 1630.

5. Hannah Marvin: born Oct 1634 in Great Bentley, Essex, England. She died 1668 (or after Nov 1680) in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. She married 5 Jan 1653/54, Thomas Seymour of Norwalk. He was born before 15 Jul 1632 in Sawbridgeworth, England and died 22 Sep 1712 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut.

6. Abigail Marvin: born 1637/38 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. She died after Dec 1680 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. She married 1 Jan 1656/57, John Bouton (Bowton) of Norwalk, Connecticut. He was born Oct 1636 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. He died 3 Jan 1703 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. John Bouton was the son of Matthew Marvin Senior’s second wife.

7. Rebecca Marvin: born about 1639 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut and died 22 or 23 Nov 1711/12 (or 23 Jan 1712) in Farmington, Hartford, Connecticut. She married John Clark, about 1662 at Hartford, Connecticut. He was born about 1630 in New Haven, Connecticut, and died 22 Nov 1712 in Farmington, Hartford, Connecticut. Rebecca is believed to be the youngest child of Elizabeth Marvin as she is named in her father’s will, but not in that of his second wife who only mentioned her own living children.

Children of Matthew and Alice:

38. Samuel Marvin: born 6 Feb 1646/47 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. He was baptized 16 Feb 1648 in Hartford, Connecticut. He died young.

39. Lydia Marvin: born about 1647 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. She is seldom mentioned, and probably died young.

40. Rachel Marvin: baptized 30 Dec 1649 at Hartford, Connecticut. She married Samuel Smith, of Norwalk, 1670. She died about 1687.

   Matthew Marvin was christened 26 Mar 1600/01 in St. Mary's Church, Great Bentley, Essex, England. He inherited property in Great Bentley from his father Edward Marvin.   It was described as  “Edons” or “Dreybrockes and additional land (20 acres) called “Hartles” and “Brocken Heddes.”  It was held conditionally that he paid to his mother during her life, the full sum of 6 pounds.  The house called Edons or Dreybrockes is still standing.  It is located at the location now known as Eden Farms, just east of the village of Great Bentloy.  The house was reportedly built in 1593 by a John Marvin of Ramsey and acquired by Edward Marvin who willed it to his son Matthew Marvin.  Eden Farms is located on Weeley Road (North Side) in Great Bentley.  The house is one of the oldest buildings in the area.  It is constructed of lath and plaster on a framework of mighty beams, some of which were once ships’ timbers.  The front part of the Eden farmhouse was rebuilt in 1717.  A chimney at the back of the house is so large that a boy could climb inside and sweep away the soot.  
   Matthew was only age 15 when his father died and it is possible he stayed with one of his older brothers until he came of age to manage his estates.  Matthew married, as his first wife, a woman named Elizabeth who was born in 1604. [See the Research Note above that shows her maiden name was not likely Gregory.]  Elizabeth’s age is given as 31 in the record of the Augmentation Office in London when she embarked for America with her husband and 5 children in 1635.  There is no record of his marriage in Great Bentley or any other nearby parish and the baptism of his first two children are likewise not recorded.  It is not know if this was due to his residency elsewhere or a real disruption in parish record keeping. 
   Matthew Marvin was a wheelwright in Great Bentley (Bentley Magna), Essex, England.  He was a member of St. Mary’s Church there and was a “sydeman” (or sideman--a church officer that was assistant to the Chief warden of a parish) there in 1621, overseer in 1627 and senior warden in 1628.  He was still in Great Bentley in August of 1633, probably remaining there to care for his mother.  At some point he adopted the principles of the Puritan Faith and decided to leave England for America.  This move had to be for mostly religious reasons, since he seemed to be wealthier than the average commoner in England,
   By 15 April 1635 he had taken the oaths of “Allegiance and Supremacy”.  This assured that he was conformable to the Government and discipline of the Church of England.  He brought testimony by certificate from the justices and ministers where he lately resided.  This was a requirement to leave England for the colonies and was not always totally the truth for committed Puritans. 
   Matthew Marvin came to America on the “Increase”, Robert Lea, Master, in 1635, from London, aged 35. With him was his wife Elizabeth, aged 31 and their children: Elizabeth, age 11 (The record says age 31, but this is probably a recording error, though some claim this Elizabeth was Matthew’s sister.), Matthew, age 8, May, age 6, Sarah, age 3 and Hannah, age 6 months.  Their names were the last on the list of passengers before it sailed in the latter part of April 1635, and it is likely they arrived in America by the first of June.  
   Matthew was listed as a husbandman on this passenger record that is reported to come from a list at the Augmentation Office in England of persons permitted to embark from London after Christmas 1634. 
   We do not know where in Massachusetts Matthew Marvin resided for the first few months that he spent in New England.  Soon after his arrival in America Matthew Marvin associated himself with a party of “adventurers” in Massachusetts that was planning to move out and settle on the Connecticut River.  His name is on the monument in honor of the first settlers of Hartford, the first of whom arrived there about November of 1635. He was one of the original proprietors of Hartford, Connecticut in a list from 1638.  His brother Reinold Marvin came to America in 1637 and joined Matthew in Hartford in 1638.
   These first settlers had land in a 35-acre plot that was called “Venturers’ Field” in the Hartford records.  The first settlers of Hartford prepared dugout shelters in the hillside to provide protection for themselves and their livestock.  These were probably reasonably warm as wood was plentiful and these shelters had fire pits.  Matthew Marvin initially chose a location on a lot at the northeastern end of Hartford at the intersection of the modern Front and Pleasant Streets.  
   As in most early settlements, food and fodder was probably scarce during the winters.  Fortunately for the settlers of Hartford, the Indians and the nearby Dutch settlers were not initially hostile.
   His land was bounded north on the road from “Centinel Hill” to North Meadow Road.  On the west was Wm. Kelsey’s lot and on the south the lot of Stephen Hart.  On the east was the road from Windsor to Wethersfield, by North Meadow.  He was definitely living here in 1639. Matthew’s initial home lot was, however, too close to the Connecticut River, and the spring floods probably inundated his house.  This probably was the reason why Matthew Marvin acquired, at an early date, house lots on the “Road to the Neck”, now Windsor Street.  
    In an allotment to the proprietors of undivided lands in Hartford in which Matthew had rights, he received at one time, 30 acres, and at another 28 acres.  This division was made according to the “proportions payed for the purchases of sayd lands.” 

In 1648-49, Matthew Marvin was given ten shillings “for killing a wolfe.” At a “Particular Court, 24 Apr 1649, he was the plaintiff in a case against Mathew Beckwith for defamation of character, and recovered damages to the amount of 50 pounds. The Court remitted this fine on Beckwith’s making a public retraction of the slander.

   At Hartford Matthew and Elizabeth Marvin had the following children: Abigail (about 1636) and Rebecca (about 1639).  Elizabeth Marvin died some time around 1640, though some lists her as the mother of Matthew’s son Samuel born 1647/48.  . 

He married (second) about 1647, Mrs. Alice Bouton (Bowton). She was born about 1610 in England and died between 17 Dec 1680 (the date of her will) and 9 Jan 1680/81 (the date of her inventory) at Hartford, Connecticut, the widow of John Bouton of Hartford, Connecticut. She had come to America with her first husband in 1635 on the ship “Assurance. Her first husband’s name was previously reported as Kellogg, but that may be an error based on an assumption that Daniel Kellogg was her son rather than her son-in-law.

   Matthew Marvin was chosen Surveyor of Highways in 1639 and 1647 in Hartford, Connecticut.  On 9 Nov 1640, Matthew and another man were fined five shllings, “for putting ouer of their hoges ouer the great river” [The Connecticut River].  In March of 1641 there was an agreement about fencing land to the corner of John Clark’s lot, in the “Souldiers Field”.  Matthew was to maintain a “common gate” to the North Meadow; and “if any children shal be taken swinging by the said Mathew Meruill, he shall complain to their parents or masters and if they doe not restraine them the second time it shall be lawfor him to [illegible] them, & if they brake the gate ther parents or masters shall make it good,” He signed this “Mathew Maruen.” Souldiers Field was west of North Meadow Creek and embraced an area of 60-80 acres. 
   Matthew Marvin may have thought about moving to Farmington where his brother Reinold had built a house, because he owned land and dwelling house in that town.  If these plans existed they were changed by prospects of settling in the new town of Norwalk, Connecticut.  He sold his land in Farmington to Nathaniel Kellogg.
   He signed the agreement for the “planting” of Norwalk 19 Jun 1650.  He was one of the original grantees of Norwalk, receiving a deed from Runckinheage for about 35 acres, 15 Feb 1651 and settled there in about 1653.  He was considered an “adventurer” because he obtained title to land in Norwalk earlier than the town’s legal title.  His home lot at Norwalk was next to the meetinghouse and contained four acres and was on the east side of the “Towns Highway.”  Adjacent properties included the meetinghouse yard, and lands belonging to Daniel Kellogg, Thomas Fitch and his son Matthew Marvin Junior.  Matthew Marvin’s lot was considered one of the most desirable in the town.  Hannah Marvin Seymour lived opposite and a little to the south of Matthew Marvin.  Matthew Marvin Jr.’s lot of three acres and two rods was between that of Daniel Kellogg on the west and the “Meeting-house Greene” on the east, running back to his father’s estate, and fronting south on the road to Stamford.  John Bouton, Matthew’s step-son, and later his son-in-law, lived on the south side of the road after it turned westward, and his house was opposite his sister Bridget’s house, who lived next west of Matthew Marvin Jr. In a real sense, Matthew Marvin Sr. was literally surrounded by his sons and daughters. 
   At Norwalk he was always addressed here as “Mr.,” a sign of his status in the town.  The name of Matthew Marvin appears on almost every page of Norwalk’s early history.  He was a Puritan by faith, devout, discreet, calm, sound in judgment and he gained and held the confidence of his fellow citizens.  He also held a number of public offices. 
   In 1654 he was representative to the General Court from Norwalk, and was assistant deputy at the General Court in 1569.   His name appears in a table of “Estates of lands and accommodations” in 1655 (which contains the earliest list of inhabitants), where his estate is rated at 314 pounds, and is the largest of any of the proprietors.  On 19 May 1659, he was freed from watching (probably sentry duty) and training.  
   When the Norwalk meeting house was enlarged in 1664 to nearly double its original size, the town appointed Thomas Fitch Sen. and Matthew Marvin Sen. to call out as many men as they think fit to fell and cut and draw the timber.  When the enlargement was done, Matthew and his associates were instructed: “to provide a luncheon and a barrel of good beans for the help.” In 1678 there was a quarrel within the congregation about changing the location of the meetinghouse.  A new and larger structure was erected on the opposite side of the street and some distance northward.  Matthew did not live to see it occupied.
   Records of grants at Norwalk and a list of 9 Feb 1671/72 shows his estate valued at 169 pounds, but also indicates that he had given liberal gifts of land to his children even before his will was written.  Matthew Marvin also owned land in villages adjoining Norwalk.  On 11 July 1672, he sold to Peter Clayton or Clapton of Fairfield, a farm at “Saukstock,” containing about 40 acres and various buildings.  Due to his advanced age he signed the deed with his “mark.”  
   In his will dated 20 Dec 1678, Matthew Marvin calls himself aged 80 or thereabouts.  He provides for his wife Alice, giving her 20 pounds and use of all of his estate during her lifetime.  He gave his son Matthew of Norwalk all of his right to the division of lands on the east side of the Sagatuck River.  The latter’s son Matthew (the original Matthew Marvin’s grandson) received, after Alice’s death, his grandfather’s dwelling house with half the orchard and home lot that lay next to his fathers dwelling lot.  The grandson Matthew Marvin also received one piece of meadow that lay between his father’s meadow and the meadow of Samuel Campfield near Fruitful Spring.  He also received upland lots at Stony Hill. Matthew Marvin, in turn had to guarantee “my sonn” Samuel Smith, access to the barn on the dwelling house lot.  Matthew Marvin Sr.’s son Samuel Smith would receive the entire barnyard if ever denied access to the barn. 
   The will of Mathew Marvin Sr. also provides his  “son John Bowton” and daughter Abigail his wife a parcel of meadow adjoining that of the said John Bowton at Sagatuck Brook.  His grandson Richard Bushnell received 10 pounds.  Francis Bushnell of Norwalk received four acres of a house lot land near Standford Path along with ten pounds of money.  
   The will also bequeathed to Rev. Mr. Thomas Handford, Pastor of the church of Norwalk 5 pounds.  Matthew’s four daughters, Mary Adgate of Norwich; Hannah Semer, Abigail Bouton, and Rebecca Clark of Farmington were to receive an equal division of any remainder of the estate.  John Bowton (Matthew’s son-in-law) and John Platt (brother-in-law of Lieutenant Reinold Marvin) were appointed executors and Rev. Thomas Handford and Lieutenant Richard Olmstead were to be the overseers. The witnesses were Thomas Handford, James Cornish and Christo Cumstocke. 
   The inventory of Matthew Marvin’s estate was taken 13 July 1680 and after a minor disagreement was settled between some of the heirs it was presented and approved 25 Jan 1680/81. His estate was valued at 398 pounds, 12 shillings and 8 pence, including 212 pounds in the value of his lands.  The household items listed were not unusual for that period.  The inventory did not include a parcel of land in Fairfield because it had not yet been valued.  This land had formerly belonged to the estate of Richard Bowton. A few items that belonged to the widow Alice were also not included.  
   The widow Alice Marvin did not long survive her husband.  Her will is dated 1 Dec 1680 and the Inventory of her estate was taken “this last of January”, 1680/81.  Matthew had given much of his land to his children prior to his death, but the remaining estate of Alice Marvin was still valued at 393 pounds, 12 shillings, 8 pence.  In her will she calls herself “aged about seventy.”  She left twenty pounds to be equally divided between her son John Bowton and her daughter Bridget Kellogg (she spells it Kellock).  Bridget also received her mother’s scarf, her best cloth waistcoat and her best serge coat and her best green apron, along with the best of her two under cotton coats and her spectacles.  Her daughter Abigail Bowton received her mother’s best hat and best cloak and her serge waistcoat, her under cotton waistcoat, a pair of cotton gloves, a pair of leather gloves, and 2 brass small weights. Her daughter Rachel Smith received her mother’s “pennistone coat”, and her flannel waistcoat. Her granddaughter Rachel Bowton received her Bible and her granddaughter Sarah Brinsmead received her chest.  Her granddaughter Ruth Bowton received a brass kettle, 3 old pewter dishes and a brass “chafendish” and a “gilpot”.  Alice Marvin signed with her mark and the will was witnessed by Richard Olmstead and Christo Cumstocke.
