Edward Mayo Family
From History of Perquimans County by Ellen Goode Rawlings Winslow.
Edward Mayo Sr was a resident of Perq Precinct 1684. He is found proving
right for himself, son Edward Jr, and dau’s Sarah, Ann, & Elizabeth Mayo,
John Nixon, Em Nixon, and Anne Nixon (their daughter) and three negroes.
(Col Rec Vol I.) On Nov 6, of same year he officiated as Att’ in Perq, and
May 1693 was appointed “Clarke of this Court.” The records in Perq,
neither Quaker, or secular, throw any light on his former dwelling place.
He held office as Clerk, in Perq for several years.
