  • Major Freeman's wife Mercy d. Sept. 28, 1711, ae. 80. He d. Oct. 28, 1719, ae. 92. In the graveyard in E. is a head- stone saying, "Here lies the body of Maj. John Freeman who d. Oct. 28, 1719, in the 98th yr. of his age." By the side of this is another, saying, "Here lies buried the body of Mercy Freeman, wife to Maj. John Freeman, who d. Sept. 28, 1711, ae. 80." The age on the first tablet is, we are confident, a mistake, — perhaps the error of the stone-cutter, but in any event an error in computation.

    • MAYO
  • The surname Mayo may be identical with Mayhew, a name distinguished by Rev. Thomas Mayhew, the noble preacher to the Indians at Martha's Vineyard, son of Thomas Mayhew, of Watertown, Massachusetts, but some authorities believe that the names are distinct and the immigrants not related, stating that Mayo is distinctively an Irish name.

  • (II) Rev. Samuel, son of Rev. John Mayo, was born about 1615, in England. He was ordained a teaching elder (minister) April 15, 1640, at Barnstable, and was associated with his father there. His name does not appear in the settlement of his father's estate, but he probably had sold his interest to one of the other heirs. At any rate he was then living on Long Island, at a great distance. All authorities agree that he was the son of Rev. John. He followed the sea, and became master mariner; bought a large tract of land of the Indians at Oyster Bay, in 1653, and went thither about 1654. Four years or so later he settled in Boston, Massachusetts, where he died in 1663. He married Thomazine (same as Tamsen, etc.) Lumpkin, daughter of William and Thomasine Lumpkin. His wife joined the church at Barnstable, January 20, 1649. His name is one of the list of those able to bear arms in 1643. Children: 1. Mary, born at Barnstable, 1645. 2. Samuel, born at Barnstable, 1647; baptized with Mary, February 3, 1649. 3. Hannah, born at Barnstable, 1650, baptized October 20, 1650. 4. Elizabeth, born at Barnstable, 1653, baptized May 22, 1653. 5. Joseph, born at Oyster Bay, Long Island, 1654-55. 6. John, born 1656-57; mentioned below. 7. Nathaniel, born at Boston, 1658. 8. Sarah, born at Boston, 1660.
  • (III) John (2), son of Samuel Mayo, was born in Oyster Bay, Long Island, 1656-57. He settled in Hingham, Massachusetts, and removed later to Harwich, now Brewster, Massachusetts, where he died February 15, 1744. He was elected the first representative to the general court from Harwich after it was incorporated, and served several years afterward. He held many other important offices. A monument was erected on his grave in Brewster, and is still standing. He married, April 14, 1681, Hannah Freeman, born 1665, died February 1, 1756, daughter of Major John and Mercy (Prence) Freeman. Her father was born in England, in 1628, and died at Eastham, October 28, 1719; her mother, Mercy Prence (or Prince), was born at Plymouth, in 1631, died at Eastham, September 28, 1711 ; married, February 13, 1649- 50, Major John Freeman. She was daughter of Governor Thomas Prence, who was born in England, in 1600, and died at Plymouth, March 29, 1673: married, August 5, 1624, Patience Brewster, who was born in England, and died at Plymouth in 1634. daughter of Elder William Brewster, born at Scrooby, England; married Mary __ ; died at Plymouth about April 18, 1643, one of the most distinguished Pilgrims who came in the "Mayflower" in 1620.
