THE MARBLE FAMILY of Ashburnham, is of English origin. There were several early immigrants of this surname. The spelling varies from Marable and Marrable to Mirable. There was a John Marble in Boston early; a son was born to John and Judith Marble named John, November 10, 1646, in Boston. Another pioneer was William Marble, of Charlestown, in 1642, who went to England in 1650 and perhaps remained there.

By Lynn R. Marble,Marble Surname Genealogist, These three are not at all "Facts", but loose speculation at best.
Fact 1: April 12, 1639, The Marble brother: John, Samuel, Nicholas, and William sailed from London.
Fact 2: The Marbles sailed aboard the ship "Jonathan" & arrived in Boston, MA.
Fact 3: The Marbles arrived during the "Great Migration" (1630-1642).
John was listed as a resident of Boston in 1646 when John Jr. was born. The only child for which there is verifiable documentation is John Jr., the other five are designated as children of John and Judith by many sources, but no known documented birth or baptism records exist. There are many early local histories of New England towns that list these six as the children of John and Judith, but with no reference as to their source of the information.

It is thought by Victor Roman (a professional genealogist in Florida) and the late Forest W. Marble of Solon, Ohio, that John (1605) came to America from County Essex, England with a brother, Samuel, in the 1630's. It is thought that John's brother, Samuel, lived for a while in Concord, Ma. (1666) and at some time had a son, Samuel, who married Rebecca Williams in 1686 at Haverhill, Ma. and started the Haverhill line of the Marbles. (This Samuel should not be confused with Samuel (1648), the son of John, who married Rebecca Andrews and resided in Andover) There was also a William and Nicholas Marble, who were thought by some to also have been brothers to John and the elder Samuel. William, age about 40 in 1652, lived in Charlestown, Ma. and Middlesex court records state that he returned to England.
Charlestown, Mass is now Cambridge Mass.
