  • Notes 
    • Both Mayflower Descendants Through Five Generations, volume 6, by John D. Austin (1995), and William Brewster--Mayflower Families in Progress, by Barbara Lambert Merrick (2001), state that no proof has been found that Samuel Mayo's first wife was Ruth Hopkins, daughter of Giles Hopkins and Catherine Whelden.

      However, Samuel Mayo was definitely the father of Hannah Mayo who married Judah Hopkins. George Ernest Bowman's abstract of the will opf Samuel Mayo of Eastham was published in The Mayflower Descendant, volume 36, number 2, July 1986, page 161. Dated 9 Apr 1734 and probated 15 Nov 1738, among its legatees are "Heirs of Dau. Hannah Hopkins deceased", to which is added the note "wife of Judah".
