    Mayo, Joseph, [died] Aug. 12, 1712, in his 73d y.
    [Age 72, so birth calculates to about 1640? However, a book called Daughters of Eve by Else L. Hambleton, publ. 2004, about women in colonial times, says Joseph was 29 in 1679. (Since the topic is a suit between Henry Short and Joseph Mayo, I suspect the original source is a deposition.) This suggests a 10 year error in math and suggests the age at death was probably 62, so born about 1650.]

    Citing Source:William Brewster of the Mayflower : and his descendants for four generations, says that in a Oyster Bay deed dated 5 Mar 1701/02, "Joseph Mayo of Newbury" identifies himself as eldest son [true eldest son Samuel had died by then] and heir of Samuel Mayo of Eastham and brother of John Mayo of Hingham.
