Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Rev. John Mayo was born about 1598 in Northamptonshire, England; died in May 1676 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    "John Mayo of Northamptonshire, who matriculated in the University of Oxford as a commoner's son from Magdalen Hall 28 April 1615, aged 17, but took no degree, was probably identical with the emigrant of that name who became colleague minister to John Lothrop at Barnstable in 1640, first pastor of Eastham in 1646, and first minister of the Second (North) Church in Boston 9 November 1655. Increase Mather was his colleague. Overseer of Harvard College. Dismissed in 1673 on account of age; died at Yarmouth in May 1676." [Samuel Eliot Morrison, The Founding of Harvard College, citation details below.]

    Emigrated to New England with his wife and children sometime between 1638 and 1640 (sources differ). His duties as an overseer of Harvard College were by virtue of his role at the Second Church.

    The Second Church at which Mayo was first minister was also known as the "Old North Church" -- but it isn't the church, or the congregation, called the "Old North Church" today. Mayo's church was on North Square, across the street from what is now called "Paul Revere's house." The church building in which Mayo preached was demolished and rebuilt on site in 1677, and this second building was dismantled for firewood by the British during their occupation of Boston during the Revolutionary War. The building now widely called "Old North Church", officially Christ Church in the City of Boston, is a separate congregation; it was built in 1723.

    His successors as minister at the Second Church were Increase Mather and Cotton Mather.
