Eden Farmhouse, Great Bentley, Essex, England

Eden Farmhouse was built in 1593 by John Marvin just East of Great Bentley, and then called Edon or Dreybrockes. It was occupied by Edward Marvin and passed to his son Matthew. The front was remodeled in 1717 and seems to have been remodeled again in modern times. The interior beams may have been ship timbers. The large chimney is obscured in this view.

Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, Great Bentley, Essex, England
Church where Edward Marvin was buried in 1615.
Edward Marvin (1545-1615)This is taken from the GenCircles website - (Rodrick-Culver and related families):
" Edward owned several farms in Ramsey, Great Oakley, Tendering Hundred, Frating and the mansion "Edons" alias "Dreybrocks" which was in Great Bentley. The mansion is still standing in good repair. Edward may have been born a little earlier than 1550 either in Ramsey or Wrabness. His will was dated 13 November 1615 and he was buried 15 November 1615 so he died either the 13th or 14th. Marvin is also found as Meruin - occasionally spelled "Maroon". "
