Mary Putnam (1773-1838) was born on August 5, 1773 in Brooklyn, CT. One of eight children, Mary's mother was Sarah Waldo (1740-1808) and her father was Israel Putnam Jr (1738-1812), one of ten children of Hannah Pope (1739-1766) and General Israel Putnam (1717/18-1790). [. . .]
Mary Putnam's ancestry has been traced through the Putnams to seventeenth century Salem, Massachusetts and from there to England. [. . .]
A century ago, the Putnam ancestry in England was published in New England Families, Third Series, Vol II, William Richard Cutter, ed. (Lewis: New York, 1915, pp. 1075-76). [. . .]
Roger Puttenham (b/f 1300-aft 1322) was sheriff of Hertfordshire in 1322 and husband of Aliva _____; their son was Henry I (1300-1350), father of Sir Roger Puttenham (abt 1320-abt 1380). Sir Roger was the father of William Puttenham I (?-?) of Puttenham Pen, Sherfield, Warbelton; William's wife was Margaret de Warbelton. Margaret was the daughter of John de Warbelton (?-?) seated at Warbelton, Sussex, Sherfield on London. Margaret's mother was Katherine, daughter of Sir John de Fokle, of Foxle, Bramshel and Apuldrefield.
William and Margaret were the parents of Henry Puttenham II (b/f 1408-July 6, 1473), husband of Elizabeth, widow of Geoffry Goodluck. Elizabeth's will is dated Dec 25, 1485; in it she asked to be buried at the Chapel of St Mary the Virgin in All Saints of Istleworth. Henry and Elizabeth were the parents of William Puttenham II (abt 1430-1492), husband of Anne, daughter of John Hampden (?-?) of Hampden, County Bucks. William's will was dated July 10, 1492 and proved at Lambeth. William directed that he be buried before the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the chapel within the church of the Hospital of the Blessed Mary, known as Elsingspytell, London. The children of William and Anne Puttenham were Sir George (heir and knight), Edmund of Puttenham, Nicholas, Frideswide, Elizabeth, Alionore, Brigide, and Agnes.
Nicholas Puttenham (abt 1460-abt 1526) of Putnam Place, was the father of John and Henry III (1460/75-aft 1526), who probably lived at Eddlesborough; Henry's three sons were Richard, John of Slapton and Hawridge and Thomas of Eddlesborough. Richard Putnam (1490/1500-1556/7) lived at Eddlesborough and Woughton. His will is dated Dec 12, 1556, proved Feb 26, 1557. In it he directed that he be buried at the church in Woughton. Richard was the father of John II, Harry of Woughton and Joan. John Putnam II (1520/25-1568) lived at Rowsham in Wingrave, where he was buried on Jan 27, 1568. John II was the father of Nicholas II, Richard of Wingrave, Thomas of Rowsham, and Margaret, who married Godfrey Johnson on June 14, 1573 at Wingrave.
Nicholas Putnam II (1540/50-1598), son of John II lived at Wingrave and, after about 1585, at Stewkeley. Nicholas' will was dated Jan 1, 1597 and proved Sept 27, 1598. Nicholas married Margaret Goodspeed (1556-1618/19) on Jan 30, 1577 at Wingrave. Margaret was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Goodspeed. Margaret was baptized, Aug 16, 1556 at Wingrave and buried at Ashton Abbots Jan 8, 1618/19. Her second husband was William Huxley. The children of Elizabeth and Nicholas Putnam (all baptized at Wingrave) were Anne (Oct 12, 1578), John (Jan 17, 1579), Elizabeth (Feb 11, 1581), Thomas (Sept 20, 1584) and Richard.
John Putnam (1579-1662), 12th Putnam (Puttenham) in this line, son of Nicholas and Margaret Putnam, was the immigrant ancestor. John lived on his inherited estates at Ashton Abbots until he immigrated to Massachusetts by 1640/41, when he received a grant of land and where his wife Priscilla Deacon (?-?) was enrolled in the church in Salem, MA. John was enrolled on April 4, 1647. John and Priscilla were the parents of Elizabeth, Thomas II (1614-1686), John, Nathaniel, Phoebe, and John. Thomas Putnam II was the father of Joseph (1669-1724) and grandfather of the famous Israel Putnam (1717/18-1790) (See ABOVE I, p. 297.) Three generations of Putnams (John, Thomas, Joseph) were among the few prominent, wealthy families in tiny Salem Village, MA in the 17th century. [. . .]
Mary Putnam and Daniel Mayo had four children: Daniel Dudley, Henry Hunt (1810-1877), Mary Aurelia (1811-1844) and Harriet. [. . .]
One might have expected Daniel Mayo and his wife, Mary Putnam Mayo, educated New Englanders from respected families, to have stood out publicly as opponents of slavery during their lifetimes. This was not the case. Census and other records indicate that Daniel and Mary Putnam Mayo owned slaves throughout their lives. [. . .]
Daniel and Mary Mayo both died in 1838, the 40th year after their marriage. Mary died on July 22, Daniel on Christmas Day. They were buried at the old Newport Cemetery on Ringgold Street. As the town grew, this cemetery was closed and all the graves, supposedly, were moved. Daniel and Mary Mayo's graves are marked today in Sec 4, lot 31-32 in the nearby Evergreen Cemetery, 5 Alexandria Pike, Southgate, Campbell County Kentucky.
This brief biography is considerably expanded at the Memorial of Mary's husband, Daniel Dudley Mayo.
