Among the passengers of the
FULLER "Mayflower," 1620, were Ed-
ward and Samuel Fuller, who
have been mentioned by various chroniclers of
early colonial history as the "famous broth-
ers." They were among the signers of the
compact. Edward Fuller and his wife both
died in 1621, during the second winter after
the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. They had a
son Samuel, who came in the "Mayflower,"
and also a son Matthew,' who did not come
over until 1623, and then in company with
Bridget, wife of Dr. Samuel, brother of Ed-
ward.

(I) Dr. Samuel Fuller of the "Mayflower,"

colony and died there in 1633. He married

the Plymouth colony and also took a promi-
nent part in the settlement of the Massachu-

portraits and landscape paintings have been
produced by his brush. I''or fifteen vears he
was connected with the East Maine' Confer-
ence and afterward was transferred to the



New England Conference. He preached sev-
eral years at West Hampstead, giving his
services where he felt the need of a chapel for
the benefit of those children and older ones
who could not go to the Centre. They at first
formed a Sunday school and the interest in-
creased, and in 1897 the Methodist Church of
the New Flampstead Conference was estab-
lished. He retired from the active work of
the ministry about 1898. For many years,
too, he was earnestly identified with the tem-
perance work of the Massachusetts Total .\b-
stinence Society. In 1862, during the second
year of the civil war, he enlisted for nine
months and served as chaplain of the First
Maine \'olunleer Cavalry. On May 12, 1S55,
Mr. Fuller married Susan Elizabeth Greenlaw,
of Waldo, Maine, daughter of Alexander
Greenlaw, who built the first framed house at
\\'aIdo, aild sister of Alexander Greenlaw, a
s(;l(lier of the civil war, and who was killed
in the battle of Williamsburg, \irginia. Alex-
ander Greenlaw, after leaving Maine, entered
the Fortieth New York Regiment at West
Cambridge, ^Massachusetts. Before departure
he nailed the American flag on a very high
pole, with the request that it remain for him
to take down on his return. It floated as long
as there was a vestige left. Rev. Samuel
Alexander and Susan Elizabeth (Greenlaw)
Fuller had three children: i. William John,
born Newport, Maine, February 26, 1856; af-
ter leaving the public schools he attended the

The surname JMayo may be iden-
AIAYO tical with IMayhew. a name dis-
tinguished by Rev. Thomas May-
hew-, the noble preacher to the Indians at Mar-
tha's Vineyard, son of Thomas JMayhew, of
Watertown, Massachusetts, but some authori-
ties believe that the names are distinct and the
immigrants not related, stating that 2\layo is
distinctively an Irish name.

(I) Rev. John ]\Iayo, immigrant ancestor
of this family, was born in England, edu-
cated there, and was presumably a college
graduate. He came to New England in 1638
or 1639, ^""i '" the latter year became teacher
in Mr. Lothrop's church at Barnstable. Ply-
mouth colony. He was admitted a freeman
March 3, 1639-40, by the general court at
Plymouth. About 1644 he removed to Nauset,
or Nawset, later Eastham, Massachusetts,
upon the gathering of a church at that place,
and became the minister. There is no account
of his connection with the church at Nauset
in existing town or church records. Among
the list of men able to bear arms in 1643 ™
Plymouth county, we find the names of Mr.
Mayo and his sons Samuel and Nathaniel, all
of Barnstable, however. Samuel i\Iayo and
his father were of the forty-five original set-
tlers of Barnstable. Mr. ^layo remained at
Eastham until 1655, when he was called to
Boston to become pastor of the Second



Church, and ordained there November 9, 1655.
He preached the election sermon before the
general court in June, 1658. There is little
known of ^Ir. Mayo's pastorate excepting
what is contained in the church records in
the handwriting of Rev. Increase Mather, wdio
succeeded him in the ministry: "In the be-
ginning of the year 1670, Mr. Mayo, the pas-
tor, grew very infirm, insomuch as the con-
gregation were unable to hear and be edified,
wherefore the brethren (the pastor manifest-
ing his concurrence) desired the teacher to
take care for a supply of the congregation that
the worshipful God may be upheld amongst
us, wdiich was for the present by him consented
to, as Christ should enable him." "Tn the
15th of the 2d. month (April) 1673, ^Ir. iMayo
removed his person and goods also from Bos-
ton, to reside with his daughter in Barnstable
wdiere (and at Yarmouth) since he hath lived
a private life, not being able through the in-
firmities of old age to do the work of the min-
istry."

He died at Yarmouth, May 3, 1676, and
was buried at Barnstable. His widow Tamsen
died February 3, 1682. While living in Bos-
ton, Mr. Mayo owned a house lot and house
on Middle (now Hanover) street, thirty-eight
by one hundred twenty feet, selling it in 1672
for 210 pounds to Abraham Cording. A
horse belonging to him was killed in the ex-
pedition against King Philip at Blount Hope,
in 1675. He must have been born as early
as 1590, for his son Samuel at least was of
age in 1640. A committee was appointed by
the court to settle his estate upon his wife
and children. June 7, 1676. The inventory
was presented by his widow Thamasin, not in-
cluding goods she brought at marriage. The
division of the estate was agreed upon be-
tween the widow, the son John, Samuel, Han-
nah and Bathsheba, children of son Nathaniel,
deceased: Joseph Howes; daughter Hannah
Bacon. «

his father there. His name does not appear in
the settlement of his father's estate, but he
probably had sold his interest to one of the
other heirs. At any rate he was then living
on Long Island, at a great distance. All au-
thorities agree that he was the son of Rev.
John. He followed the sea, and became mas-
ter mariner: bought a large tract of land of
the Indians at Uyster Bay. in 1653, and went
thither about 1654. Four years or so later

1744. .He was elected the first representative
