The name Mayho was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Mayho family lived in Norfolk. Their name, however, derives from the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Mayeux, Normandy.

Mayho Early Origins



The surname Mayho was first found in Cornwall where they were granted lands by William the Conqueror for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Mayho were among those contributors:

Mayho Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Percilla Mayho who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1756

Mayho Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • George Mayho was a fisherman of Pardy's Island in 1850

Mayho Settlers in Canada in the 19th Century

  • Robert Mayho was recorded in Rock Harbour in 1871
