William Mayo Sr.
I have found this birth date posted several places on the web as well as in "Mayo's of Today and Yesteryear" I do not know the source. I personally think him being born in 1654 in Isle of Wight VA and being imported by John Hardy and contriction.Notes for William Mayo Sr.On June 5, 1666, John Hardy of Isle of Wight was granted 1150 acres of landfor importing 23 persons, including William Mayo. The usual procedure forgranting land was as follows: a colonist would locate a tract of land hewanted, have it staked and surveyed. For each 50 acres of land, he wasrequired to import one permanent settler and establish those persons on thesaid land for a period of time, usually two to six years. In theory, the lawmeant importation from overseas, but there are many known cases in whichyoung men, women and children of colonists were listed as imports when inactuality they had either been born here or came here as imports with theirparents. During the two to six years it took for the patent to be granted,the imported settlers were sponsored by the colonists. At the end of theperiod, they were given an acreage,usually ten to twenty acres, and were freeand clear. All of this was determined by the terms of the indenture they hadsigned previously. If a settler could pay his own transportation fee, heusually came over on his own, but even then he might legally be consideredimported by the colonist for whom he worked.*****VIRGINIA LAND GRANTS AND PATENTS: Patent10, p 101Nov 13, 1673Isle of Wight, Virginia220 acres on south side of main Blackwater Swamp Begg. & c. on the west sideof Nottoway Swamp and corner tree of William Williams land*****VIRGINIA LAND GRANTS AND PATENTS: Patent 15, p 452February 27, 1634Prince George County, Virginia6778 acres upper side of Flatt Creek between line of Bolling Pride, MortonStephens and c.*****VIRGINIA LAND GRANTS AND PATENTS: Patent 7, p240He was also granted 366 acres of land in Isle of Wight County, Virginia onthe south side of Kinsale S.W., April 16, 1683, p 240.

To have and to hold or to beheld by yielding and paying & provided and Dated the sixteenth day ofApril one thousand six hundred Eighty three.BELOW IS FROM A POSTING OF DOYLE FENN:IS HE ACTUALLY THE PROGENITOR OF THIS FAMILY?William Mayo is listed as the progenitor of all the Mayos listed in his document with much reluctance knowing it is not possible for him to hold that honor. There are too many ifs and problems involved. Many Mayo family historians have listed him as the father of James Mayo who supposedly married Mary Valentine. Much debate among Mayo family historians has occurred as to the validity of William Mayo being the progenitor of this family.There is no dispute over whether he married Isabel Hardy. A Hardy Family History is printed in the THE OLD FREE STATE, A Contribution to the History of Lunenburg, County & Southside, Virginia, by Landon C. Bell, Vol. II. The publication lists Isabel Hardys husband as William Mayo and names the children. The dispute is over whether William and Isabel were old enough to be the grandparents of Valentine Mayo who family historians say was born in 1670. If Valentine Mayo was born in 1670, William & Isabel (Hardy) Mayo are not his grandparents. He would have to have been born about 1690 to be James Mayos son. Documents indicate that he was probably born even before 1670.The Hardy Family History lists Isabels father as John Hardy, Jr. b. c1633-35 in England, and her grandparents as John Hardy, Sr., b. 1613 in Bedfordshire, England and Olive Council b. 1615 in England. Using the time line that follows, it is not possible for Isabel to be the grandmother of Valentine Mayo, if he was born in 1670-71. John Hardy was born in 1613, and his son, John Hardy, Jr., was born 1633-35. If we use the 1633 birth date, John Hardy, Jr. could have been the father of Isabel about 1653 when he was 20 years old. If Isabel married William Mayo when she was 15 or 16 years old, she could have been the mother of James Mayo about 1670. James & Mary (Valentine) Mayo are listed by many family historians as the parents of Valentine Mayo whose birth date is given as about 1670. As anyone can see, James Mayo could not be the father of Valentine Mayo, if Valentines birth year is correct. Valentine Mayo witnessed Jonathan Brooks Will in 1686. There are too many conflicts in dates, etc. for Valentine Mayo to be the son of James Mayo.Lets use some ifs. If Valentine Mayo was born about 1690 (which cannot be) the pedigree chart is possible. Documents indicate he was probably born before 1670. In order to witness Jonathan Brooks Will, he would probably have been at least 21 which would place his birth date before 1665. I have not seen a document giving Valentine Mayos birth date. He married Ann (Meckleburrough) Burk Jordan on 14 Nov 1710 in Christ Church in Middlesex Co., VA. Ann was twice widowed when they married and had a son by each deceased husband. The Hardy Family History plays a big part in determining the validity of the pedigree chart. I dont have any way of knowing how accurate the dates are in the Hardy Family History, but the history appears to be well documented. Every family history has errors, as all family historians have learned.MORE CONFUSION IN THE MAYO HISTORYThe VIRGINIA HISTORICAL MAGAZINE states: The family of Council settled in the Isle of Wight county in the seventeenth century. In 1693, Isabel Mayo, widow of William Mayo, gave her brother (actually brother-in-law) Hodges Council a power of attorney, in Isle of Wight county. Daniel Boucher, in his will of 1671, made a bequest to Hodges Council. John Hardy, in his will, proved in Isle of Wight county on 9 June 1697, made bequests to his daughter Lucy, wife of Hodges Council. Hodges Councils will was proved in Isle of Wight county on 10 April 1699 and named his sons: Hodges, Hardy & Robert. (Virginia Historical Magazine, Vol. 32, No. 1, pp. 59-60). This record would support Isabel Hardy being the daughter of John Hardy, Jr. and his wife Alice Bennet Johnson, because she refers to Hodges Council as her brother (actually brother-in-law). John Hardy, Jr.s daughter, Lucy, married Hodges Council.William Mayos will was dated in 1713 and proved on 25 April 1715 in the lower parish of Isle of Wight county. It names the following children: William, Jr.(oldest son), James (next oldest son), John, Margaret, Patience, Mary and Peter as well as his wife Isabel. If William Mayos will was not written until 1713 and not proved until 1715, how could Isabel be his widow in 1693? In the Lost Tribes of NC2, by Worth S. Ray, Isabel Hardy is listed as the daughter of John Hardy, Sr. and Olive Council. Were there two William Mayos who married two Isabel Hardys? I doubt it. I believe that a typographical error was made in recording the 1693 date.Some Mayo genealogists have written that William Mayo Sr. was the first Mayo in America, while, in fact, David and Richard Mayo were in Virginia in 1623. Numerous other Mayos were in Massachusetts in the mid 1650s. I have not found a connection between the Virginia and Massachusetts Mayos, but suspect there is one in England.Another common story promoted by some Mayo descendants is that William Mayo, Sr. was transported to America by John Hardy. John Hardy received 1150 acres on 5 June 1666 for transporting 23 individuals to Isle of Wight Parish in Virginia. Giving 50 acres to a colonist for each person transported was a means of populating the unsettled colonies. The colonist who transported the person was given the deed after the settler had lived here for about 6 years, and the new settler received a plot of ground (10 to 20 acres). I have not been able to verify that William Mayo Sr. was one of the 23 people transported by John Hardy Sr.WILLIAM MAYO DEED RECORDSWiliam Mayo was granted 220 acres on the Chewan River in Isle of Wight Co., VA on 20 Apr 1682, bordering THOMAS MANN and GILES LINSCOTT. The land was granted for transporting 5 persons to America: William Oldis, Demaris Oldis, Alexander Fleming, John Barnes & William Freeman.William Mayo was granted 170 acres by Lt. Gov. FRANCES NICHOLSON with the approval of Williams wife, Isabel, on 9 Aug 1693. HODGES COUNCIL (Married Lucy Hardy, daughter of John Hardy, Jr.) was Isabels attorney. The land was bordered by JOHN KING, GYLES LINSCOTT & LEWIS (deceased). Teste: Henry B. Bradley & Hodges CouncilWilliam Mayo was granted 366 acres in Isle of Wight Co., VA on 16 Apr 1683. The land bordered S. W. Kinsale, Richard Boothe, Hodges Council, Joseph Vic Allingo, Eliz Holt, Mary Blander, Richard Needham, Mary Manes, Kathe Bridge & Philip Russell. (p. 240 deed records)William Mayo witnessed the will of Robert Burnett (husband of Ann Hardy) in 1679.
