Rev John Mayo, Jr Memorial Photos Flowers Edit Share Learn about sponsoring this memorial... Birth: 1597, England Death: May 3, 1676 Yarmouth Barnstable County Massachusetts, USA

He was possibly the son of John Mayo, rector of Cattistock, Co.Dorset.

His first wife's identity is not known. She was the mother of all of his children. See comments below.

He married, second, about 1672, widow Tamesin ____ Lumpkin. She died Feb 26,1682/3 at Yarmouth,MA.

Children(by first marriage): Samuel Mayo, Nathaniel Mayo, Hannah Mayo Bacon, John Mayo III, and Elizabeth Mayo Howes. Possibly others.

From Cape Cod History website, here:

In his early 20's, John was in Leiden, Holland to marry there: Jan Meyer (John Mayo) of England, baize-worker, accompanied by Thomas Smeth (Smith), his acquaintance, was betrothed March 21, 1618 to Timmosijn Breyck (Tamisen Brike) of England, accompanied by Susanna Breyck (Brike), her mother, and Marytgen Duijck, (Mary), her sister. ( N.H., vol. H., fo. 216). (Foreign names were commonly "Dutched".) A baize-worker works with wool fabric, and many Puritans in Leiden had this occupation, because there was a demand.

The Mayos were living at Nauset in the 1640s, where John was the first minister. There is a small indication that John Mayo remarried late in life.

NOTE: It is very possible that earlier Cape Cod resources may be incorrect, but there may be an inconsistency with the identity of John's wife Tamesin. Earlier literature indicated he married, as his second wife in 1671, Tamesin, widow of William Lumpkin, by whom Tamesin had several children. If that is the case, his first wife, and mother of his children, may be the Tamesin mentioned above, and she may be a different women than the Tamesin he married later in life. All comments welcome to sort this out.
