Interesting Information about Roger Mervyn

According to the website linked to below, here is an interesting tidbit about Roger Mervyn:

"Roger Mervyn's will was dated and proved the same day, the Sunday after the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 1475. He possessed lands and tenements besides the home in which he died. He directed that his interment should be in St. Stephen's Church. He left the church 23 shillings, 4 pense."

Putting things in perspective

Roger spelled his last name as Mervyn. I wonder when the spelling of that name got changed to the more generic Marvin.

He married Matilda about 1452; therefore, he was 22 years old when he married.

His son, Thomas, was born about 1455. So Roger was 25 years old when his son was born. Sadly, he died before he got to see Thomas marry or have children. In fact, he died when Thomas was twenty years old.

Roger was born about 1430 and died in 1475; therefore, he was 45 years old when he died. We do not know if he left anything to his wife, is she was still alive, or his son. We do know that the church must have been important to him since he left some money to the church.

Thanks so much. I have a couple of lines back to the 1100's. I thought I would post all of it on Hubpages as other people in search of information on those various family lines might find it helpful. It's like a tresure hunt - trying to find that kind of information from long ago. It's fun and addictive. Of course, I will be posting on other topics as well. That's part of the fun of Hubpages. You can post all kinds of different information.
