The surname Mayo is of Norman origin, and is a variant of the Biblical "Matthew" or Mayhew (Cornish "Mayow"). It is apparent that John is son of John Mayo of Thorpe Mandeville (6 miles NE of Banbury), Northampton County, England - visit the church via http://www.thirdman.ukhq.co.uk/index.html on the Web. John arrived in Massachusetts by 1639 and became a freeman of Barnstable. By 1643 he was a teacher at Nauset (now Eastham). On 9 Nov 1655 he was installed first pastor of the North Church in Boston, serving with Increase Mather. He moved back to Barnstable in 1673 because of infirmity and age. In the Old State House, Boston, now a museum, a tile is displayed from Pastor Mayo's house. See "History of Andover, N.H., 17551-1906." At the time of his death he resided at Yarmouth with his daughter Elizabeth. His son, Nathaniel, b. ca. 1627, married Hannah Prence, dau. of Gov. Thomas Prence and wife Patience Brewster (dau. of Elder William Brewster).
This tribute was shared by an Internet correspondent, 1/97: "He was b. while Elizabeth I was Queen, and a boy during the reign of James I, he went to Magdelen College, Oxford University, in 1615, but did not graduate. He wed and had all his children in Northamptonshire. He was a Protestant minister in a time when the harrassed clergy were obliged to disguise themselves and to use assumed names. The whole family came to the Colonies in 1638. 'on March 3, 1639/40, in New Plymouth, at a General Court, Wm. Bradford, Governor, Thomas Prence, Miles Standish.... assistants Mr. John Mayo of Barnstable, Mass., and Job Cole admitted Freemen in this court and Sworn,' (the term Freemen connotes men of peaceable conversation, orthodox in the fundamentals of religion). He was a 'pious and learned minister.' He was steady, reasonable and patient. He served the congregation at Nausett (Eastham) as a 'teaching elder' and moved there from Barnstable in 1646. In 1654, they moved again, to Boston, so that he could become the first pastor of the Second Church of Boston, 'transplanted from the smallest town on Cape Cod to the largest in the Bay, the "Metropolis of America". Was he not quite a person? He was, humanly speaking, one who has done the impossible!' He was an overseer at Harvard College, and he attended he graduation of the son of a fellow overseer, Increase Mather, who became Pastor after John. He was paid 65 Lbs. as his salary. He resigned his pastorate April 15, 1672/73, after 33 years in the pulpit. The North Church pensioned him, not because he was needy, but for all the good he had done. He was a sincere 17th century religionist. He was a resourceful man whose mentality was far above average. He helped to found two towns and three churches. He 'never lost a friend except by death.' 'I have always supposed that Mayo was quite a person. I dare say he has not had his justice from the historians, quiet people who mind their own business seldom do."
Mariah Lawson (3506A Fairmont Blvd., Knoxville, TN 37917) shared 2/97 without proof that John is son of the Rev. John Mayo, Sr., b. 1565 in West Orchard, Shaftsbury, England, died by 17 Feb 1635 in Cattistock, England and buried at Cattistock (wife perhaps Elizabeth ___). See "Builders of the Bay Colony," by Samuel E. Morrison; "Description of New England", John Eliot (May, 1650); "History of Boston," by Snow; "History of the Second Church" (1852)[formed 1649 and led by a layman until John Mayo was installed 9 Nov 1655; 27 Mar 1664 the church ordained as associate pastor Increase Mather, father of Cotton Mather, because John Mayo's "voice was so enfeebled by age that his parishioners could scarcely hear his messages."]
The LDS Church's Ancestral File (AFN: 8WRT-S3) gives his wives as Thamasin (Thomasine) (Tamezin) LUMPKIN (AFN: 8FNH-1G) (m. ca. 1614, and probably confused with her daughter-in-law) and Elizabeth SAUNDERS (AFN: JF6K-NT) (m. ca. 1648).
The following massive information was shared by Jean Mayo-Lakatos (email@example.com)in June, 2003: "It appears that you've gotten your information from the Mormon Ancestral File. I actually gave them my research as well, and they mixed up 3 different versions of Rev. John Mayo's ancestry into a sort of chicken soup. I was able to prove that Rev. John Mayo1 did not marry Elizabeth Saunders, Hannah Graves, or Thomasine Constable. Hannah Graves married John Mayo of Roxbury, MA., and not Rev. John Mayo. Rev. John Mayo didn't marry Thomasine Constable in East Malling, Kent, England, because I just had 2 English researchers of Kent, England comb the records in Kent, and no such marriage record exists over there. He didn't marry Elizabeth Saunders either. I had the Dorset, England records checked by a Dorset researcher, and this is what he found. John Mayo, b. ca. 1590, son of the Rector of Cattistocke, Dorset, England, married Elizabeth Saunders in Dorset...I don't have my research in front of me to give you the town, but it could have been Caundle Bishop. This family has connections to the other towns as well that you name in your original posting. Anyway, this John Mayo, b. ca. 1590, cannot be Rev. John Mayo, because this John Mayo married, had children whose names do not match up to those of Rev. John Mayo, and there is record of him dying and being buried in Dorset, England. His wife, Elizabeth, died there a few years later. So he cannot be Rev. John Mayo. My sources are the following: 1. Ronnie Cobb, researcher for East Malling, surrounding towns, and the county of Kent in general. I also checked several records offices of that area, as I could not find a central records office for Kent, like I could in other counties of England. 2. Mormon IGI Index for Kent, England. 3. Christopher Langston, researcher for Dorset, England, who lives in Bridport, Dorset, England. 4. Dorset, England County Records Office. 5. Mormon IGI Index for Dorset, England. 6. Present Rector of Cattistocke, Dorset, England. The reason lots of people thought that Rev. John Mayo was the son of John Mayo, rector of Cattistocke, Dorset, England was because it is said that at the time of his death, Rev. John Mayo had in his possession a book entitled, "The Pope's Parliament ", by John Mayo, rector of Cattistocke, that was published in 1591. I have found this rare book at the Yale University Law Library, and they were good enough to copy it on paper from microfilm and bound it and send it to me. I'm sure they would do the same for you if you are interested. So that is the main reason that people think that Rev. John Mayo is the John Mayo, b. ca. 1590, s/o John Mayo, rector of Cattistocke, who married Elizabeth Saunders, etc. But that has been completely disproved. The Thomasine Constable, East Malling, Kent, England connection was brought to me by another researcher. I have just finished working on that theory, and have met some delightful people in the process in England. There is no record that can be found for John Mayo marrying Thomasine Constable in Kent, England, especially not in East Malling or surrounding towns. There is no record of John Mayo at all in East Malling or surrounding towns for that time period, that any of my researchers could find. There are Constable's living in East Malling however, but none connected to this Thomasine Constable, or her parents, Thomas and Ann Constable. I think this information came from the Mormon Kent IGI Index, and the original source was named as a researcher, and not an actual record. This is kind of obvious because when you see the entries concerning it on the Roots Web World Connect Project, it only gives the date of marriage as 1618/1619. It gives no further date or church or whatever, which often can be found on the Mormon IGI index records. And every time I see this theory floated around, the source is always named as another researcher...no record or book or anything is named as the original source for this information. Because of the research that I sent to the Mormon Ancestral File in Utah, a jumbled up mess has happened and the towns and counties have been messed up. Caundle Bishop, West Orchard, Shaftesbury, and Cattistocke all lie in Dorset, England...and this area pertains to John Mayo, rector of Cattistocke, and his son, John Mayo, b. ca. 1590. Farthinghoe, Thorpe Mandeville, Middleton Cheney, etc. are all in Northamptonshire, England. It was thought that Rev. John Mayo was b. on April 2, 1598 in Middleton Cheney. However, I had the town historian of Middleton Cheney, Nancy Long, personally look at the record, which at that time, could still be found in the parish records there, and this is an error. A Crescent Mayo, s/o Peter Mayo, was b. on April 2, 1598, and not a John Mayo. So that theory is not correct. I followed it up with Rachel Watson of the Northamptonshire County Records Office to verify this. I did find record of Rev. John Mayo and his family of origin, that I believe to be accurate, in Farthinghoe and Thorpe Mandeville, however. My sources for that information are: 1. Nancy Long, Town Historian of Middleton Cheney, who did the legwork for me and personally held the records in her hands. 2. Rachel Watson, archivist at the Northamptonshire County Records Office. 3. Farthinghoe parish rector...I was able to write to him several times before he retired. 4. Thorpe Mandeville parish rector.
"According to the Banks Manuscripts, Rev. John Mayo came to Nauset from North Newington, Oxfordshire, England, which is only a few miles away from what I believe to be his boyhood home in Thorpe Mandeville, even though both places are located in different counties. I believe this Banks research to be accurate. North Newington is a stone's throw from Broughton Castle and Lord Saye and Sele...and to Banbury, the hotbed of Puritanism. In the 1630's, Lord Saye and Sele had secret Puritan meetings held in a secret room at the top of his castle. I believe Rev. John Mayo attended these meetings, along with some Warwickshire Puritans located just over the border between Warwickshire and Oxfordshire. The reason I believe this is because in America, Rev. John Mayo wrote letters to Lord Saye and Sele and was said by the Gov. of CT. to have special favor with Lord Saye and Sele, a.k.a. William Fiennes. Also, in a letter written by Rev. John Mayo, he mentions these Warwickshire friends by name, who were the earliest settlers of CT., and were funded by Lord Saye and Sele, the Earl of Warwick, etc. The following are the probable baptism records of Rev. John Mayo and his siblings:
1. Philippa Mayo: bapt. in 1595 at Farthinghoe, Northamptonshire, England. She died in Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England on Nov. 24, 1627 at age 32. She was the daughter of John and Katherine Mayo.
2. John Mayo: (believed to be the Rev. John Mayo), was bapt. Oct. 16, 1597 at Farthinghoe, Northamptonshire, England, the only s/o John and Katherine Mayo. He was named in his father's will. He married Tamisen Brike on March 21, 1618 in Leiden (Leyden), Holland.
3. Hannah Mayo: bapt. Mar. 11, 1599 at Farthinghoe, Northamptonshire, England. She married Daniel Jarvis ca. 1630. She was called Anne Gervice in her father's will. Known children of Hannah Mayo and Daniel Jarvis were: Thomas and Elizabeth Jarvis (twins; b. 1631), Daniel Jarvis (b. 1634), and Ann Jarvis (b. 1640). This Jarvis family lived in Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England. Both Daniel and Hannah (Mayo) Jarvis are mentioned in her father's will. Hannah Mayo was the daughter of John and Katherine Mayo.
4. Elizabeth Mayo: bapt. Jan. 1, 1601 in Farthinghoe, Northamptonshire, England. She was unmarried and living with her parents in Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England when her father died in 1629/30. She was mentioned in his will. She was the daughter of John and Katherine Mayo.
5. Joyce Mayo: bapt. Aug. 21, 1603 at Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England. She married Thomas Gilbert on Jan. 22, 1624 at Thorpe Mandeville. Her husband was called Thomas Gilbarde in her father's will; however, she was not mentioned in her father's will in 1629/30, and she might already have been deceased at that point. Known children of Joyce Mayo and Thomas Gilbert, all bapt. at Slapton, Northamptonshire, England, where this family was living in 1629/30, were: Elizabeth Gilbert (bapt. Sept. of 1626) and John Gilbert (bapt. 1631 (?)).

"Transcript of the will of John Mayo of Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England. Rachel Watson, archivist at the Northamptonshire County Records Office in England, took it upon herself to modernize the spellings, unfortunately:
"I John Mayo of Thorpe Mandeville in the County of Northampton do make my last will and testament bequeathing my soul unto God and my body to be buried in the church yard at Thorpe. And for my temporal goods I do bequeath as follows. I make the executors Katherine Mayo my beloved wife and Elizabeth Mayo my daughter and further my will is that my two executors shall divide my goods equally between them and also shall equally be enforced to pay my debts for the rent of the house and close and also those legacies hereafter named."
"To my son Mr. John Mayo I by legacy bequest a coffer of ash standing over the kitchen. To my son (in-law)Thomas Gilbert of Slapton I give all those tools which he have now in his keeping. I give to my daughter Anne Gervice one pewter platter as my executrix shall please to give. In witness hereafter, I have subscribed my hand the eighteenth of January 1629 (1630). I make my overseer Daniel Gervice my son-in-law. Signed: John Mayo. Witnesses were: William Gardener and Hannah Jarvis." The will is dated Jan. 18, 1629/30. It was proved March 20, 1629/30.
"According to Phillip Tillinghast Nickerson, Rev. Charles Chauncy, who also came to New England, had been great friends of Rev. John Mayo's father, John Mayo, and Chauncy gave John Mayo's last living as Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England. I found John Mayo, believed to be the father of Rev. John Mayo, in records of Thorpe Mandeville...his was the only Mayo family in that town during the appropriate time period, going backwards and forwards many years. I located a copy of his will, in which he named his children. I had lots of wonderful help in Northamptonshire, England...and was able to locate the baptism records of the children of John and Katherine Mayo...including the baptism record that I believe strongly to be that of Rev. John Mayo. I was also able to locate other records concerning this Mayo family to round out things a bit. The Rev. Charles Chauncy was vicar of Marston St. Lawrence, Northamptonshire, England. And he was said to be a great friend of the father of Rev. John Mayo. It is my belief that John and Katherine Mayo were born and were married in Marston St. Lawrence. But guess what...yes....a fire destroyed the records in Marston St. Lawrence...that is why I can't prove my theory...and why I must color my hair because it is going quite gray from the frustration of it all! ANYWAY...Since I could find no birth, baptism , or marriage record for John and Katherine Mayo anywhere after decades of searching, I am really thinking that they were born and married in Marston St. Lawrence...where they met and were friends with Rev. Charles Chauncy, vicar of that town. They shortly after marriage moved to the very next town over from Marston St. Lawrence, Farthinghoe, where all but their last child were baptized. They then moved a few miles away from there to Thorpe Mandeville, where they had their last child, lived out their lives there, and died. John Mayo died in 1629/30 and his wife, Katherine, died in 1633...both are buried in the church yard of Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England. Probably, Elizabeth Mayo, who was unmarried at the time of her father's death and living with her parents, most likely went to live with her married sister and her family, still living in Thorpe Mandeville. Interestingly enough, before Rev. Charles Chauncy was vicar in Marston St. Lawrence, there had been several Mayo vicars there as well. I tried very hard to trace them to John Mayo of Thorpe Mandeville, but was unable to do so. They did not appear to marry or have children and the last Mayo vicar there left his land and property to his sister. Because of the lack of records in Marston St. Lawrence, I just was unable to link the Mayo vicars there in that little village to John Mayo of Thorpe Mandeville, or to Rev. John Mayo. But it wasn't for lack of trying! I tried to trace the line of descent of the probable sisters of Rev. John Mayo, who had married, but was unable to do so unfortunately. I just recently threw in the towel on that area of my research.
Looking at the will of John Mayo of Thorpe Mandeville, it tells us a few things. He was definitely not wealthy and had very little to leave his children, and didn't even mention his grandchildren in his will. He had nothing to leave them. His daughter, Joyce (Mayo) Gilbert, wasn't mentioned, leading me to believe that she was deceased at that point in time. He rented his home. He didn't own property. He left one of his daughters only one pewter platter. He had debts that had to be paid out of the estate. He left his son, John Mayo, "a coffer of ash standing over the kitchen". Mayo Research Experts claimed for decades that that meant that Rev. John Mayo was a holy man and in the exercise of his ministry in England. It meant nothing of the kind! According to Oxford University Library and the Northamptonshire County Records Office in England, a coffer is a box, a standing box, one of those dresser/ hutch types of furniture that stood in the kitchen, where the family kept all of their valuables...including the pewter platter that was left in the will to one of the daughters. And this piece of kitchen furniture was made from ashwood, of which they are very familiar in England.
John Mayo was the only son of John and Katherine Mayo, and his father left him most likely the most valuable item in his possession. I have been told by Mayo families who had worked on their genealogies, who lived in Brackley, near Farthinghoe,that the Mayo's who lived in Marston St. Lawrence and the surrounding towns, had come to Marston St. Lawrence in the mid-1500's, and spread out to the surrounding towns from there. And these Mayo's had originated in the county of Cornwall in England. He contacted his sister to get more information for me, but I never heard from her. I tried doing research in Cornwall but it was just impossible, because I didn't have enough information to go on in order to begin a full-scale search in that county. But I did the best that I could. To date, I have not been able to connect our Mayo's to that county...but I think that perhaps they did originate from there.

"The following are early records concerning the Rev. John Mayo's family of origin in Thorpe Mandeville and Slapton in Northamptonshire, England. These records were searched by Dave Atkins:
1. Baptism: a. 21 August 1603, Joyce, daughter of John Mayoe. (Joyce is believed to be the sister of Rev. John Mayo.). b. 11 March 1631, Thomas, son of Daniele and Anne Jervice (Anne is believed to be the sister of the Rev. John Mayo.). c. 5 November 1631, Elizabeth, daughter of Daniele and Anne Jervice. (This is the order they appear in the register. Thomas and Elizabeth are supposed to be twins, and if they are, Elizabeth was baptized first, possibly at birth if her prospects were not good.). d. 3 September 1634, Daniell, son of Daniele and Anne Jervice. e. 5 February 1636, John, son of Daniele and Anne Jervice. f. 28 May 1640, Ann, daughter of Daniele and Anne Jervice.

"I contacted Oxford University in England and verified that a John Mayo of Northamptonshire, England, a commoner's son, matriculated or enterred Magdalen Hall, Oxford University, on April 28, 1615 at the age of 17 years. This would fit in with his being baptized on Oct. 16, 1597. This John Mayo is widely believed to have been Rev. John Mayo."

"Probable marriage record of Rev. John Mayo: The marriage of Rev. John Mayo and Tamisen Brike in Leiden, Holland, took place on March 21, 1618.
1. A marriage was recorded for Jan Meyer (John Mayo), a baize worker (works with coarse woolen used to make curtains, table cloths, linings, etc.)from England, and Timmosijn Breyck (Tamisen Brike), also from England, in the Reformed Church in Leiden, Holland. The witnesses were Timmosijn's (Tamisen's) mother, Susanna Breyck (Brike), and her sister, Marytgen (Mary) Duijck. Jan (John) was accompanied by his friend, Thomas Smeth (Smith).
2. I was told by the city clerk of Leiden (Leyden), Holland, that the record was in sort of a " Dutch-speak ". He said that the Anglicized version of the names would have been John Mayo for Jan Meyer and Tamisen Brike for Timmosijn Breyck and Mary for Marytgen and Smith for Smeth. The marriage record itself did state that both bride and groom were from England. Not wanting to take just his word for it, I contacted the Leiden (Leyden)University Library, and surprisingly, they had a copy of the marriage record on file as well, and he verified how the Dutch names would have been spelled in their Anglicized form.
3. They explained to me what a baize worker was. That made me wonder. But then again, Elder William Brewster, who had spent time in Leiden (Leyden), Holland, himself did not practice his occupation as minister over there. His occupation in Holland was a printer of books. The Puritan ministers who found themselves over in Holland, had to find other ways to make a living to support their families. Also, I have read that Rev. John Mayo was great friends with Elder William Brewster.
4. So it appears strongly that Rev. John Mayo left Oxford University before taking a degree (most likely to avoid taking the Oath of Conformity at graduation, something Puritans were loathe to do. He then, it appears, went to Leiden (Leyden), Holland for a time. The baptism records for the Reformed Church in that time period were burned in a fire, and I checked all over Leiden (Leyden) but I could not locate any baptism or birth records for any children born to John Mayo and Tamisen Brike, born in Holland.
5. According to the Banks Manuscripts, Rev. John Mayo left North Newington, Oxfordshire, England for New England in 1638. Unfortunately, unbelievably, the early town records (basically church records) for North Newington burned too, so if their children had been born there, we are out of luck to find record of it. I have checked the counties of Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Dorset, Cornwall, and Essex...especially concentrating on the areas connected to Rev. John Mayo in Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, and Warwickshire...and I could not locate a marriage record for Rev. John and Tamisen; nor birth or baptism records for their children.
6. I think it is a strong possibility that they had some of their children in Leiden (Leyden), Holland and some of their children in North Newington, Oxfordshire, England...but no baptism records survived to prove it, unfortunately.

"Text of Letter Written by Rev. John Mayo: In 1643, Gov. Wyllys (Willis) of Connecticut, a friend of Rev. John Mayo, wanted him to move to CT. and be a minister there. Mr. Mayo consulted with his wife, Rev. John Lothrop, and his church elders and decided to stay at Barnstable, MA., where he was a teaching elder at that time. The following is a copy of the letter that John Mayo wrote to Gov. Wyllys, declining his offer:
John Mayo to Gov. George Wyllys. Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and or Lord Jesus Christ be multiplyed to you and yors Much honoured Sr Whom I heartily Love and kindly salute in or Lord would be pleased in his wise providence to afford me that mercy; yor letter of the 2d of the 3m came to my hands upon the first of the 7m, soe that I could not returne an answere of it any sooner. Soe that these few lines are in my remembrance of my respective Service to you, and unfained thankes for all yor many and great favours to me and mine, and yor present remembrance of me. I should account no smale mercy, nor little portion of my happynesse to have been (if god had so dispossed me) settled in yor pts that I might have enjoyed good by yor Communion, with others of my deare friends with you, but my unworthynesse did justly debarre me that benefitt, the Lord in mercy humble me by itt, and sanctifie all his dispensations to me and dealings with me, concerning yor lettr, if i were free I should (if I might see the Lord going before me), not only manifest my willingnesse but readynesse, to live soe neere you, not looking after any call for publike service for I find the calling of ministry soe great the charge so weightie that I were out of office, I should not easily imbrace a call, but as yet I am in office though unworthy and unable , being privie to the deceit of my owne heart and my great weaknesses. Whereupon I have desired or Church that I might lay downe my office, but I cannot prevayle with them, they are through gods mercy and goodnesse a good and so godly and playne hearted people, for the most pte, with whom (as yet I see it is the mind of God I should stay)the Lord of his grace make me serviceable to him and to them. I am great ingaged to you as for the formr soe for this prsent fruit of yor Love to me in desiring me in yor pts.

"The Rev. John Mayo and Oxfordshire, England: According to the Banks Manuscripts, Rev. John Mayo went to New England from North Newington, Oxfordshire, England. North Newington was extremely close to Banbury, the hot-bed of Puritanism, and was also a stone's throw away from Broughton Castle. Lord Say of Sele lived in Broughton Castle, and he held secret Puritan meetings in his basement. Many Puritans who attended these secret meetings were from towns just over the border between Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, an area close to Broughton Castle itself. Lord Say of Sele sponsored these Warwickshire Puritans, and aided them in going to America to be the earliest settlers of Connecticut. In America, Rev. John Mayo corresponded with Lord Say of Sele. He was also friends with the Warwickshire bunch who settled CT. They invited Rev. John Mayo to be their minister in CT, but he wrote to them and declined their offer. In that letter, he mentioned his friends in CT by name, and they were all from Warwickshire on the border with Oxfordshire. I researched in those towns and found absolutely no connection between those towns and Rev. John Mayo. So I have come to the conclusion that Rev. John Mayo more than likely came into contact with them in the basement meetings at Broughton Castle...North Newington being so close to that castle. Some of Rev. John Mayo's children could possibly have been born in North Newington, Oxfordshire, but the records of that time period for that town were destroyed by fire, so I am unable to prove it. I was unable to find a marriage record for Rev. John Mayo and wife, Tamisen, and was unable to find baptism records for their children in the English counties of Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Dorset, Essex, and Cornwall. I believe that Rev. John Mayo left Leiden (Leyden) Holland at some point to return to England...and he possibly had children in Holland as well as North Newington, Oxfordshire, England before leaving for New England. Leaving in 1638 made a great deal of sense. His parents died in 1629/30 and 1633 respectively. One and possibly 2 of his sisters were deceased. One sister was married and settled. Possibly the unmarried sister went to live with the married sister after the death of their parents. All of his Warwickshire friends were leaving soon to settle Connecticut. Elder William Brewster and most of the Puritans who had escaped to Holland had found their way to New England. All of his and Tamisen's children had already been born. He was being persecuted for his religion and was being forced into secret basement meetings to practice his religion. It was the height of the Great Migration from England to America. The time was perfect for Rev. John Mayo to go to America. According to Phillip Tillinghast Nickerson, Rev. John Mayo and his family arrived in New England in the spring of 1638, before the Great Earth Quake (I think off the top of my head, that earth quake took place on or around July 14, 1638...but I don't have the exact date at my fingertips).

"Possible Burial Sites of Rev. John Mayo: There is no record of where Rev. John Mayo is buried that I have been able to locate to date...I have read that there are only 8 grave stones on Cape Cod that pertain to the 1600's still in existence. Some of the possibilities where he could be buried include the following: 1. A cemetery near the Second Church in Boston, MA. where he had been a minister for so many years. 2. Calves Pasture in Barnstable, MA. where many of the earliest settlers of Barnstable, MA. were buried in mass graves without markers. 3. Lothrop Cemetery in Barnstable, MA. Part of it is a regular cemetery and another part is a mass grave site containing the earliest settlers and followers of Rev. John Lothrop, including Rev. Lothrop, and had no markers or records of these burials. I have also read that the unmarked burials at Calves Pasture in Barnstable, were unearthed at some point and were reburied at Lothrop Cemetery, with the other mass graves. 4. The Ancient Cemetery in Yarmouth, MA. The graves of early burials were not marked or recorded, I was told, but do exist there, beside the marked graves. 5. Old Burying Ground in Eastham, MA., next to the site of the first meetinghouse in Eastham, where Rev. John Mayo was the first minister. 6. Howes Cemetery, Bramble Lane, Dennis, MA. (There is a good possibility that Rev. John Mayo could be buried in this Howes Cemetery on Bramble Lane in present day Dennis, that used to be part of Yarmouth, MA. According to Rev. John Mayo's estate papers, he died in what was then Yarmouth, MA. It is said that he was living with his daughter, Elizabeth (Mayo) Howes, wife of Joseph Howes, not far from this Howes Family Cemetery. Margaret Thacher Reid, town historian of Dennis and Yarmouth, said that it is firmly her belief that they are buried in the Howes Cemetery without benefit of record or marker. She said that people were buried there from 1650 forward without record or marker, which only came in to use closer to 1700 in that cemetery.)
"Paul Bunnell's "Cemetery Inscriptions of the Town of Barnstable, MA" do not mention Rev. John Mayo. After much research, I have been unable to locate the grave site of Rev. John Mayo in Boston, nor anywhere on Cape Cod. According to Margaret Thacher Reid, sort of a town historian for Yarmouth, MA., most people before 1700, were buried in their own back yards or in little family cemeteries close by. They did not make a fuss with funerals that they began to do ca. 1700. They accepted death as a part of every day life, and just stopped to bury their loved one and say a few prayers over his grave, before going back to their work and daily lives basically. That kind of shocked me when she first told me that. There were no elaborate funerals. Grave stones weren't used widely until close to 1700. Before that, the grave was marked by field stones, that gradually eroded away...or a wooden cross that didn't last long. Ms. Reid told me that they would not travel long distances to bury their loved ones either. After Rev. John Mayo retired from the ministry in Boston in 1673, he and his wife, Tamisen, lived with their daughter, Elizabeth (Mayo) Howes and her family in the part of Yarmouth, MA. which is now called Dennis, MA. Ms. Reid said that it was a hardship for settlers in that area to get to the site of the meetinghouse in Yarmouth for church services on Sunday, as at that point, they pretty much walked everywhere. She doubts that they would have taken Rev. John Mayo to the cemetery there to be buried. Not far from where Rev. John Mayo lived with his daughter, Elizabeth (Howes) Mayo, was the Howes family cemetery on Bramble Lane in Dennis, MA. There are grave stones there for some of Elizabeth's children and their descendants and for some of the early Howes and their marriage connections. I was told that there were early burials there from the mid-1650's forward, that had no markers and that went unrecorded. Both Rev. John and Tamisen died very close to this cemetery in Yarmouth (now Dennis). It is my gut instinct and educated guess that they are both buried in the Howes family cemetery on Bramble Lane, in Dennis, with their daughter, Elizabeth (Mayo) Howes, and her husband and her children. Rev. John Mayo died in 1676 and his wife, Tamisen, died in 1682, and that was the burial practice of those times.

"Further notes: Rev. John Mayo's burial site: When Rev. John Mayo died, he had 3 living children: Hannah (Mayo) Bacon of Barnstable, John Mayo of Eastham, and Elizabeth (Mayo) Howes of Yarmouth (in the area of present day Dennis), on Cape Cod. If Rev. John Mayo was living with Hannah, the odds are that he is buried in Lothrop Hill Cemetery, across from the Sturgis Library, in Barnstable. He would not be buried in Calves Pasture there because all of those graves have been moved to Lothrop's Hill Cemetery. Rev. John Lothrop and the earliest settlers of Barnstable are buried in Lothrop's Hill Cemetery in mass, unmarked graves, which was the practice in those times. Behind these graves is a regular cemetery of a later time period that contains grave stones. If Rev. John Mayo was living with his son, John, in Eastham, then in all likelihood, he is buried in the Old Town Cove Burying Ground next to where the first meetinghouse in Eastham once stood. All of the sources I have seen indicate that Rev. John Mayo was living with his daughter, Elizabeth, in Yarmouth (in present day Dennis area) at the time of his death in 1676. If this is so, there may be a slight chance that he is buried in the Ancient Cemetery in Yarmouth. There are very early graves there that are unmarked. However, I think it is more likely that he would have been buried in Howes Cemetery on Bramble Lane in Dennis, which used to be considered part of Yarmouth. This cemetery was in the Howes family and close to where Elizabeth was living at the time. She was married to Joseph Howes. And from learning about the burial practices of those times, I strongly think that if he did indeed die while living with his daughter, Elizabeth, the odds are good that he is buried there in Howes Cemetery. There are early unmarked graves as well there. Grave stones didn't start to be used there until very close to 1700.
"Rev. John Mayo and his connection to Lord Saye and Sele of Broughton Castle in Banbury, Oxfordshire, England: I have lots of fantastic pictures of Broughton Castle on my computer if anyone is interested in seeing them. I also have information typed up on my computer concerning Rev. Mayo and his probable connection to Lord Saye and Sele if anyone is interested in that. I have been in touch with Broughton Castle and the present Lord Saye and Sele asked for information concerning Rev. John Mayo in England and in America. I e-mailed it to him this morning. I am hoping for some feedback from him in the near future. I am also desperately trying to get a photo from him of the secret room at the top of the castle where there were secret Puritan meetings held with Lord Saye and Sele, including probably Rev. John Mayo, and Rev. John Mayo's friends from over the border in Warwickshire. If I can get a photo of this secret room, I'll somehow figure out a way to share it with anyone who is interested. Rev. John Mayo, according to the Banks Manuscripts, came to Cape Cod from North Newington, Oxfordshire, England in the Spring of 1638 with his family. North Newington is a stone's throw from Broughton Castle and very close to Rev. John Mayo's friends from over the border in Warwickshire. These secret meetings took place in the 1630's.
"Ship Rev. John Mayo and family came over on: I have been unable to locate the ship he came to America on. We know he was definitely in Barnstable in 1639/40, so I checked every passenger list I could find for 1640 or before. In case he was traveling under an assumed name, I checked for family groupings with similar ages and first names. But I found absolutely nothing. I strongly suspect he MAY have come over with Rev. Charles Chauncy, but I couldn't find a passenger list with him on it either! I researched as thoroughly as I could but came up empty, I'm sad to say.
"Rev. John Mayo's sisters in England: two of his sisters died young or were never married. Two of his sisters married Thomas Gilbert and Daniel Jarvis. I got absolutely nowhere in learning info about Thomas Gilbert, his family origins, and his descendants. In regards to Daniel Jarvis, I have some promising possible family origins for him and his early Jarvis family in Farthinghoe, Northamptonshire, England, but nothing proven beyond a shadow of a doubt as yet. If anyone is interested in that, I can e-mail what I have on the subject to you. I could learn no further information about Daniel Jarvis himself nor his descendants.
"Rev. John Mayo and his wife and children: I have found no baptism records for Rev. John Mayo's children to date in Leiden, Holland; nor in Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Cornwall, Dorset, London, or Kent in England. The pertinent baptism records for the proper time period were destroyed by fire in Leiden, Holland and in North Newington, Oxfordshire, England, as well...also in Marston St. Lawrence in Northamptonshire, England, where Rev. Charles Chauncy was from.
"Northamptonshire, England was geographically favored after the Norman Conquest as it lay between York and Winchester, then the capital, and half way between the Welsh border and the East coast. It is fairly east to traverse, being low-lying country...Brackley is a town fairly close to Farthinghoe in Northamptonshire. It was once a wool centre." This is interesting because I have read that the Mayo's had come to England from France during the Norman Conquest, and it appears that Northamptonshire was a favored area geographically during those times. Also, if you will recall, on the marriage record in Leiden, Holland, believed to be that of Rev. John Mayo and Tamisen Brike, it stated that Rev. John Mayo was a baize worker. A baize worker works with coarse woolen to make curtains, tablecloths, linings, etc. Rev. John Mayo was born in Farthinghoe, in a town very close to Brackley, the wool centre. When the Puritans went to Holland, they had to find other ways to support their families there, since Rev. Robinson was already their minister there, and they all could not be active ministers there. I believe that even Elder William Brewster was a printer to support his family while in Holland. "The Mayo and Jarvis families can both trace their ancestors back to ancient territories of England between the 11th and 12th centuries. They can trace their ancestral roots back to Norman origin and first appeared in ancient medieval records in Cornwall. (I have been told that the Mayo's from the Farthinghoe area of Northamptonshire had come from Cornwall, England in the first half of the 1500's.) The Gilbert family trace their ancestral roots back to Cornish origin and first appeared in the medieval records in Devonshire. The BRIKE family can trace their ancestors back to the ancient territories of Ireland between the 11th and 12th centuries. This family can trace their ancestral roots back to IRISH origin and first appeared in ancient medieval records in Munster in Ireland. The BREYCK family can trace their ancestral roots back to Anglo Saxon origin and first appeared in ancient medieval records in Shropshire, England. Also, the surname of BRIKE can be found in "Boyd's Marriage Index (1538-1840)" in England. According to the marriage record believed to be that of Rev. John Mayo, his wife's surname was listed as BREYCK and the Leiden City Clerk said that was " Dutch speak " for BRIKE. So Tamisen was either English or Irish...I'm inclined to say English, because the marriage record stated that she was of England, as was her groom.
"Rev. John Mayo's sister, Hannah Mayo, married Daniel Jarvis in ca. 1630. They lived in Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, England and had connections to nearby Farthinghoe, where Hannah Mayo had been baptized on March 11, 1599. Rev. John Mayo's sister, Joyce Mayo, married Thomas Gilbert on Jan. 22, 1624 in Thorpe Mandeville and sometime between 1624 and 1626, they moved to Slapton, Northamptonshire, England. She had been baptized Aug. 21, 1603 at Thorpe Mandeville, where her family had moved from Farthinghoe sometime between 1601 and 1603. Rev. John Mayo had 2 other sisters, Philippa Mayo and Elizabeth Mayo, but they did not marry to my knowledge.Philippa was baptized ca. 1595 in Farthinghoe and died Nov. 24, 1627 in Thorpe Mandeville, unmarried, at the age of 32. Elizabeth Mayo was baptized Jan. 1, 1601 at Farthinghoe and at the time of her parents' deaths, she was living with them, unmarried. Her parents were John Mayo and Katherine (maiden name unknown) and they died and are buried at Thorpe Mandeville in 1629/30 and 1633 respectively."

 John is son of James Stringfield and Mary Ray, and served in the army - "In the Revolution he fought at King's Mountain under John Sevier." See familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/b/a/t/Margaret-R-Bates/GENE8-0011. http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/b/a/t/Margaret-R-Bates/GENE14-0012.html reports: "John Stringfield entered the army in the Revolutionary War when he was 14 years old and was the comrade of the four sons of James Boydstun -- James Jr., William, Samuel, and John. He served 7 years in the army and was discharged at age 21. He married Sarah Boydstun (Boylston), sister of the four Boydstun brothers, in 1787, and settled near James and Mary Prewitt Boydstun in Buncombe County, N.C. in the Mills River Section after the Revolution. When Stringfield found his land claimed by an older grand, he and the Boydstun family moved to Logan and Warren Counties in Kentucky about 1797. John Stringfield had a more-than-average education. In the Revolution he fought at King's Mountain under John Sevier. Seven of his children were born in Warren County, Kentucky, but he was near Murphysboro, Tennessee, when his son, Alfred Moore, was born in October 1809. John Stringfield from there moved to Huntsville, Alabama, about 1811, where he lived for several years and ran two ferries -- a large one and a small one -- across the Tennessee River. In 1816, he and his two sons-in-law, Gardner Randolph and James Burleson, decided to go to Illinois, where his brother, James had settled on the Sangamon in 1820. John arrived there in early 1822 and died there January 5, 1822. Sarah Boydstun Stringfield died at Galena, Illinois in 1828."
 John is son of David Witmarsh (1550-1618).
