  1. Alan,

    This is Robert Marvil, age 27 currently located in Denver, CO, originally from Atlanta, GA. I have a follow-up question surrounding our first ancestors here in America.

    I am aware that John Marvel, son of Thomas Marvel Sr, was born on 04 Aug 1632 in Melbourne, Cambridgeshire, England. He died on 29 Jul 1707 in Accomack, Virginia, United States. What I find interesting is that you found evidence of one Robert Maruel/Marvel listed as one of those killed in the Massacre of March 1622. lists Robert Maruel as arriving in Virginia in 1622. An older John Marvell, born 1535 in Cambridgeshire, had a son Robert Marvel born in 1561. He would have been in his late 40s/50s when Capt. Smith set sails. I find it incredible interesting the info you found on Capt. Smith’s precinct that included Robert Maruel. Is it possible that Robert Maruel/Marvil was the first who made the voyage from England? Would love to engage in a more in depth conversation about this.
