Putting things in perspective
Matthew Marvin, Senior, was 22 or 23 years old when he married in 1621 or 1622. His wife, Elizabeth Gregory, was about 18.
They had their first child, Elizabeth, in 1622. So they had been married either one year or less than one year when she was born. Henry would have been between 22 to 24 years old. Elizabeth would have been 18 or 19.
They had their last child, Lydia, in 1647 or 1648. Matthew Marvin, Senior, would have been 48 or 49 years old. His wife, Elizabeth Gregory, would have been 43 or 44 years old.
William Marvin, Senior, died in 1680 at age 80 or 81. His wife, Elizabeth, died in 1681 about the age of 77 or 78.
Here is some interesting info from family historian, Grant Gregory:
"East Norwalk is the location of Norwalk's original colonial settlements. The land was purchased from the Norwalke Indians by Roger Ludlow in 1640. Historical markers in the neighborhood include the Roger Ludlow Monument, and the Founder's Stone Monument of 1649. The 31 first settlers listed are: George Abbitt, Robert Beacham, Stephen Beckwith, John Bowton, Matthew Campfield, Nathaniel Eli, Thomas Fitch, John Griggorie, Samuel Hales, Thomas Hales, Walter Haite, Nathaniel Haies, Rev. Thomas Hanford, Richard Homes, Ralph Keiler, Daniel Kellogge, Thomas Lupton, Matthew Marvin, Sen, Matthew Marvin, Jr, Isacke More, Jonathan Marsh, Widow Morgan, Richard Olmsted, Nathaniel Richards, John Ruskoe, Matthias Sention, Sen, Matthias Sention, Jr., Matthew Sention, Thomas Seamer, Richard Webb, Walter Keiler. British forces under General William Tryon arrived on July 10, 1779 at Calf Pasture Beach and almost completely destroyed Norwalk by fire; only six houses were spared."

More about his trip to New England
From another family historian, this information is given about Matthew's trip to New England:
"Hottens list of emigrants to America period 1600 to 1700, gives a list of passengers credited to the ship "Increase", Robert Lea, Master, sailing from London, Eng. spring of 1635. On this list appears the name of John Warner, 20, also the individual names of several families, among them that of Symon Stone, wife Joan, and 5 children, Symon Ayres, wife Dorothy and 8 children, and Mathew Marvyn, wife Elizabeth and 5 children.
Next following the name of the youngest Marvyn child and included in same group with that family are the names of "Jo Warner" 20, and "Isack More" 13, evidently two boys sponsored by the Marvyn's. In after years a grand-daughter of Isaac's married a Marvyn descendant.
Mathew Marvyn settled in Hartford and in 1637 his elder brother Reinhold came over and also settled in Hartford. In 1648, John Warner sold his property in Hartford, and bought a "New House", a home lot and other lands in Farmington, of Reinold Marvin, who the account says 'was a fellow passenger with John on the Increase'."
