John Mervyn, son of Thomas Mervyn, was born about 14801 and was buried at St Michael, Ramsey, Essex, England.1 He died before 17 December 1533, when his will was proved.

John married Margaret (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), say 1505.1

John was of age in 1503, and was co-executor of his father's will. He was a man of very considerable wealth, owning lands and tenements in the parishes of Ramsey, Great Oakley [Myche or Much Ockley] and Little Oakley. The names of some of his lands were Janecoxe, Waxe, Bennettes, Rolfes, Nether lands, Gesses, Brandons, and Milkes. He also had interests in the town of Harwich, which he left to his brother Thomas, a resident of that town. John made a will 16 Sept 1533 and it was proved 17 Dec 1533. He was buried with his father.1,2
