Edward Marvin, son of Reinold Mervin, was born after 1533.1 He died at Great Bentley, Essex, England, 13 November 1615, and was buried at St. Mary's Church, Great Bentley, Essex, England, 15 November 1615.1

Edward married Margaret (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), and who is probably not the mother of all his children.1

Edward was of Ramsey, Wrabness and Great Bentley, co. Essex. He was a yeoman and under 21 when his father made his will. In that will, Edward received a tenement and lands both free and copyhold, in the parish of Wrabness. These lands, together with an adjoining parcel of land in the parish of Wix, Edward bequeathed in 1615 to his eldest son, Edward, Jr.

Edward was a man of considerable wealth, for he held property not only in the parishes of Wrabness and Wix, but also in Ramsey, Frating and Great Bentley, and he resided in Great Bentley during the latter part of his life, in a mansion house called "Edons alias Dreybrocks."

He married Margaret _____ who is probably not the mother of all his children.

His will was dated 13 November 1615 and proved 17 January 1616. His emigrant sons, Reinold and Matthew, were the youngest of his six surviving sons.1,2
