Who is Thomas Mayo - Wiltshire
« on: Saturday 14 September 19 13:57 BST (UK) »
Iím after a little help once more after recently re going over an old post when looking into my GGG Grandfather Frederick Mayo Wade.  Long story short and with a wonderful amount of help especially from Chris.  We discovered the Mayo connection back to Thomas and Katheren Mayo nťe Totty.  Katherenís father left a Will which was recently transcribed which has made me once again look at Thomas Mayo.  According to the marriage to Katheren he was born around 1664 and was a Clothier.  But I canít find any feasible parents for him. 

Also in Katherenís father John Tottyís Will he mentions a cousin James Townsend

And I do hereby desire and make my trusty and well beloved friends my Cousin JAMES TOWNSEND of Cheverell Magna gent

John Tottyís father Richard also leaves a will and similarly mentions a cousin James Townsend of Avon in Stratford Wiltshire (I think this one is possibly the father of the other one) so far I canít find a connection to make them cousins however I did find that James Townsend senior in his Will of 1679 mentions a brother in law William Mayo?  It looks like his wife is Hester but she could be his second wife Iím unsure. 

Iím having a struggling tying these families together.  Perhaps cousin was a more loosely used term back then?

So I thought I would try and see if Thomas Mayo was in anyway connected to the William Mayo mentioned in James Townsend seniors Will. 

But I canít not find any possible baptisms for Thomas.  I will attach the wedding information when he married Katheren there seems to be mention of a Frances Mayo as well.

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

Regards
Deb Rennie

I had noted that and thought he might hold the key bit I have been able to locate him or see if he was married.

Itís probably just getting a bit too far back in time to work it out

I found this today which mentions Thomas Mayo and a Totty Mayo and similar names but the date of his birth is out.  But also a mentions Francis Mayo.  I canít find the 1710 will that it mentions but that will might hold a few keys if I could find it.
