About Mareen Duvall, the Younger
Yes, Mareen "the Immigrant" Duvall really did name two sons "Mareen" - one by each of two wives. This was not a unique instance - Richard Cheney did the same thing (named two sons after himself), as (in Accomack/Northampton County, VA) did Col. Edmund Scarburgh.
Mareen Duval, the son of Mareen & Susannah Duvall, was born about 1680 (deposed aged 46 in 1726) at "Middle Plantation" in Ann Arundel Co., Maryland. He was called Mareen "the younger" and also "Mareen Duvall of the Marsh". When he was age 12, his father, who was predeceased by his mother, died (in 1692). In 1696 he petitioned the court to allow him to choose his own guardian, but Gov. Francis Nicholson denied his request & ordered Col. Henry Ridgely and his wife to continue as guardian. His share of the estate consisted of 300 acres. It was on the west side of a branch of the Patuxent River and began at an oak standing by a Great Marsh. It adjoined "Howerton Range," the plantation that was divided between his brother, Benjamin, & sister, Katherine. On October 21, 1701, he married Elizabeth, daughter of John and Mary (Cheney) Jacob, and they made their home on the land he inherited which was where their children were born.

On July 12, 1701, Mareen Duvall was accused of making "false, scandalous, and infamous libel" against Mistress Eagle. He hired the barrister, Col. William Dent of Charles Co. and the case was presented on April 27, 1703. Robert Eagle & his wife failed to prove the accusations and lost their case. Mareen Duval recovered damages in the form of tobacco.
On January 30, 1723/4, Rev. Jacob Henderson granted his "well beloved kinsman", Mareen Duvall at Great Marsh a tract of land known as "Pleasant Grove". It is believed that this Mareen & his wife are buried here. His will written Dec. 9, 1741 and proved June 9, 1741, appointed wife, Elizabeth, executrix.
