Hi Bea!
This mayzes family trees is sooo confusing. Samuel james mayzes is the name of my grandfathers dad. My grandpa, William Benjarmin Mayzes was born in 1929. My Grandpa is out of town right now but he has been collecting information for years. I am going to get together with him when he gets back and try to piece it all together. I will keep you updated. You can email me at courtneypjames at yahoo . com. If you'd like.

Hi Courtney, thank you for responding to my verrry long comment.  I'm not sure if we are in the same Mayzes family, it sounds like we might not be.  But, please, let me know what your grandpa has to say.  Even if we aren't in the same family tree it would still be interesting to hear about.

Looking for family connections. My husband is related to the Mayzes family. His maternal grandmother's uncle was Jim Mayzes who emigrated to Simcoe County, Canada (Barrie and Holstein, Ontario). He and his family eventually moved to Ann Arbor Michigan. Ivy Farrell- whose mother was Eliza Mayzes- was a Home Child who was sent to Canada with the Barnardo Foundation and lived with Jim and his family in Holstein.

Ivy eventually married William Wesley John Sandercock, and lived in Toronto (East York). We bought their house when she died, and we only sold it four years ago (2010). We now live in Stratford, Ontario. Would love to reconnect with family members- we have just inherited photos, including photos of children, one of which we believe is Thomas Mayzes, who survived the sinking of the Titanic.

I can be reached at (*) We hope we will hear from someone here....how wonderful it would be to learn more.

This post is intended to suggest how the various branches of the MAYZES family (mentioned in previous posts) fit together:

Jonas Mayzes (1800-1876)  was born at Barnardiston, Suffolk. Barnardiston is about 20 km SE from Cambridge. Jonas was a clock and watch maker.
On November 22 1835 he married Mehitabel Bareham at Steeple, Essex. Steeple is about 50 km NE from London.
Jonas and Mehitabel had eight children. Their four sons (who sustained the Mayzes name) were:
1.   William Mayzes (1843-1908)
2.   Samuel James Mayzes (1844-1912)
3.   George Mayzes (1846-1897)
4.   Daniel Mayzes (1851-1934)

1. William married Emma Faulkner in 1863 and they had six children. This family lived in Battersea.

2. Samuel James Mayzes (1844-1912) married three times and had two sons with his wife Minnie Jane Bell.
a) Samuel James Mayzes (1902-1981)
b) Benjamin Mayzes (1905-1991)
Many of their descendants live in Western Canada.

3. George married Lydia Cunningham in Dartford in 1867. They had 11 children. Seven sons and four daughters that include:
a) Eliza Mayzes (1872- not known) Eliza married Richard John Farrell in 1892. Their child Ivy Nellie Farrell was born in 1903.

b) Samuel James Mayzes (1879-1965) married Emilia Exell (1880-1960) child:
   Walter William Mayzes (1912-1958) born Barrie Ontario; died MI USA

c) Thomas Jubilee Mayzes (1887 1928) survived the Titanic sinking.
 
4. Daniel married Eliza Ann Colgate in 1872 and they had 10 children. This family lived in Battersea and Dartford.

I hope this helps.

Michael

I was just wondering if anyone was still following this thread. My grandfather was Walter William Mayzes (1912-1958). His parents were Samuel James Mayzes and Amelia Exell (Exell could be a middle or last name). My line comes from a very short marriage 1951-1953. On his death certificate his wife's name is listed as Lareine, I think. It's not very legible.

There was a post on this thread from a James W Mayzes that also claimed Walter William Mayzes as grandfather. I would love to make contact with him if anyone knows him, but would be tickled pink just to learn more about my family.
