Mary was possibly the daughter of Thomas Marvel, who gave Job Gastineau (George Lewis's son) a horse in the division of his property, 1753. Job would have been Thomas's grandson. [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4]."

  • Birth: 5 April 1723 - Worcester County / Stepney Parish, Somerset, Maryland
  • Death: About 1780 - Worcester County Maryland, USA
  • Parents: Thomas M Marvel, Elizabeth Huggins
  • Spouse: George Lewis Gastineau

Notes for THOMAS M. MARVEL, SR.: Thomas Marvel, younger son of John and Ann (West) Marvel, was born about 1682 in Worcester Co., Maryland. He married Elizabeth Huggins of Somerset Co., Maryland, June 16, 1721, and they had six children: Abigail Marvel, born April 5, 1723; Viley Clear Marvel, born December 14, 1726; David Marvel, born January 5, 1729; Thomas Marvel, Jr., born November 11, 1732; Philip Marvel, born November 30, 1735; and Robert Marvel, born May 15, 1737.

The Will of Thomas Marvel was dated March 28, 1753, naming his four sons, David, Thomas, Phillip and Robert; and leaving his plantation of 150 acres to his youngest son, Robert Marvel, in return for the care of his father in his old age. .

Thomas Marvill purchased two tracts of land on the Nanticoke River on the site of the present little village of Riverton, once known as Bacon Quarter, in Somerset (now Wicomico) Co., MD. .

1723 Dec. 6 Thomas Marvel purchased a tract of 150 acres called "Gladstone Adventure" from Lewis and Elizabeth Rigby of Somerset Co, Maryland. (Somerset Co. L.R., Book GH, p.108-10); and 1725 July 14 Thomas acquired an adjoining tract of 200 acres called "Hardship" from William and Elizabeth Phillipson. (Somerset Co., L.R., Book TH, p. 24). For proof of the location of these tracts, see Somerset Co. L.R. Book LW-4, p. 341-2, 11 Jan 1849. The land at this spot is high, by local standards, and very sandy, with a lovely outlook across the Nanticoke River. .

1753 Mar. 20 Thomas Marvill executed two deeds of gift, in which he divided his personal property and his real estate among his family. To sons David, Thomas, and Philip he gave personal effects and livestock, and to Job Gastineau (relationship not stated) he gave a mare. David received 100 acres of land "in the middle of the tract"; Thomas received 100 acres, "the back part of the tract"; Philip did not get any land. Robert Marvil, in exchange for caring for his father for the rest of his life, received the largest portion of personalty and the dwelling plantation with 150 acres of land belonging thereto. George Lewis Gastineau (a schoolmaster and father of Job) was a witness to the two deeds. (Somerset Co. L.R., Book A, p. 292). .

1753 Mar. 28 The will of Thomas Marvel was dated March 28, 1753, naming his four sons, and leaving his plantation of 150 acres to his youngest son, Robert Marvel, in return for the care of his father in his old age. .

Notes for ELIZABETH HUGGINS: 1721 June 16 Thomas MARVILL married Elizabeth HUGINS [HUGGINS] in Stepney Parish, Somerset Co., MD. (Stephey Parish Register, p. 10). Earlier histories say she was the daughter of Edmund and Ann Huggins, and although I haven't found any proof of this, it is plausible, because Edmund was the only Huggins appearing in the records in the right area. He had owned land on the north side of Wetipquin Creek, and in 1718 he bought land on the Nanticoke River a few miles north of where Marvill would soon settle. (MD. State Archives, Patents, 1695, Vol. BB-3, p. 381-83); Somerset Co. L.R., Book EF, p. 211); Source: Hall of records at Dover, Del.; Marvel History pg 7-8; Early Marriage records of Maryland
