- REV. JOHN MAYO.
- Although this is an Irish name, the subject of the following sketch was born in England and graduated from an English university. He came over probably about 1638, and in 1639 was in Barnstable, where he was ordained a teaching elder in connection with Rev. John Lothrop. He was a freeman in 1640. In 1646 he removed to Eastham and subsequently took charge of the church in that town, where he continued until 1655, when he was settled over the second, or North, church in Boston. In 1673, in consequence of advanced age and infirmities, he went again to Barnstable, and there and at Eastham and Yarmouth passed the remainder of his life with his children, dying at the latter place in May, 1676. He was a man of prominence as a minister, and in 1658 preached the annual election sermon. His wife was named Tamosin, or Tamsin ; she died in Yarmouth in 1682. His children, all of whom were born in England, were:
- 1. Hannah
- 2. Samuel
- 3. John
- 4. Nathaniel, and
- 5. Elizabeth
- ' SAMUEL MAYO.
- Samuel, son of Rev. John was in Barnstable in 1639. He adopted the profession of mariner, running a packet for some time between the Cape and Boston. He afterwards became connected with some members of the Sandwich church. In the purchase of Oyster Bay, Long lsland, there was a wide difference among the Sandwich settlers on theological points, but in this instance the minister, Rev. William Leverich, and his sympathizers, were the liberal and tolerant wing, and were In the minority. Mr. Leverich and his associates resolved upon removal, and Mr. Mayo conveyed their goods and effects to the new settlement. The Dutch were then our enemies, and under a warrant from an officer of Rhode laland, in 1654, Mr. Mayo's vessal was seized at Hampstead harbor, for alleged unlawful Intercourse with them. — This being regarded as a high-handed offence against the dignity of Plymouth Colony, commissioners were sent to Rhode lsland to look after the matter. The act was disclaimed by the government of Rhode lsland, and an award of £150 damages made. — Mr. Mayo afterwards removed to Boston, where he died in 1663. He married Thomasine, daughter of Wm. Lumpkin of Yarmouth and his children were :
- 1. Mary, 1645 ;
- 2. Samuel, 1647. These two were baptized together 8 Feb. 1650.
- The long lapse of time for those days between the births and baptism, and the fact that the mother joined Mr. Lothrop's church Jan. 20 preceding the baptism, indicates that she was in sympathy with the disaffection towards the majority of the Yarmouth church and the minister, which was known to exist at that time. Other children were :
- 3. Hannah, born Oct. 20, 1650;
- 4. Elizabeth, May 22, 1653 ;
- 5. Nathaniel, Apl. 1, 1658 ;
- 6. Sarah, 1660.
- The last two were born in Boston.

John Lathrop. He was admitted a freeman in 1640 and six years later removed to Eastham where he became a pastor of the church. In 1655 he was called to the Second Church in Boston as its first pastor, and was long associated with the famous Dr. Increase Mather, who succeeded him in the pastorate. The infimities of old age compelled him to relinquish his activities in 1673, and he died in Yarmouth, Massachusetts, in May, 1676. In 1658 he delivered the annual election sermon in Boston.
