"(I) Reinold Marvin, the emigrant ancestor, son of Edward and Margaret Marvin, was baptized in St. Mary's Church, Great Bentley, Essex, England, June 7, 1593, died in Lyme, Connecticut, in 1662. He resided in his native parish until just before his departure for New England, where his brother Matthew had preceded him. The date of his sailing or the name of his ship is not known. The last mention of him in Great Bentley was in 1637; he appears in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1638, which approximately establishes the date. His name appears on a list of Hartford landowners in 1639-40. He removed to Farmington, Connecticut, where he built a house. He next removed to Saybrook, Connecticut, where he was made a freeman, May 20, 1658. He is frequently named in the colonial records of Connecticut. He held no public office, but is styled "Mr. Reynold Marvin." Lyme, just across the Connecticut river from Saybrook, was made a distinct town in May, 1667. Its meadows and cornfields had been cultivated by armed men from Saybrook, among whom no doubt were Reinold and his son. He built a house in Lyme, retaining his home lot and considerable property in Saybrook. At his death his largest holdings were in Lyme. The value of his estate, £820, was a large sum for that period of colonial history. He married, probably in 1617 or 18, Marie -------. She died in Lyme, not long before her husband, as is evident from his will. Her death was attributed to "Witch Craft." At a quarter court held at Hartford, September 5, 1661, Nicholas Jennings and his wife Margaret, of Saybrook, were indicted for "having entertained familiarity with Sathan . . . and by his help done works of above, ye course of nature, to ye loss of ye lives of several persons and in pricular ye wife of Reinold Marvin, with sorceries." The jury did not agree: "the majority of them found them guilty and the rest, strong ground for suspicion." Children, all born in England, with baptismal dates: 1. William, November 4, 1618. 2. Elizabeth, April 19, 1621. 3. Mary, October 27, 1622. 4. John, buried March 16, 1626. 5. Elizabeth, Baprized April 29, 1627. 6. Sara Marie, July 22, 1629. 7. Reinold; see forward. 8.
