Proof of parents and other ancestry data sought for John Mayo, b. 2 April 1598 in Cattistock, Northamptonshire, reputedly baptised the same day in Middleton Cheney, d. 3 May 1676 in Yarmouth, MA, an ordained minister. It is thought without proof that John is son of the Rev. John Mayo, Sr., b. 1565 in West Orchard, Shaftsbury, England, died by 17 Feb 1635 in Cattistock, England and buried at Cattistock (wife perhaps Elizabeth ___). The full name, dates and parents for John's wife, Thomasine, are also sought.
