Seven children were mentioned in his will: William, James, John, Peter, Mary (m. Geo. Murrell), Margaret, and Patience (m. John Beal). *** On June 5, 1666, John Hardy of Isle of Wight was granted 1150 acres of land for importing 23 persons, including William Mayo. The usual procedure for granting land was as follows: a colonist would locate a tract of land he wanted, have it staked and surveyed. For each 50 acres of land, he was required to import one permanent settler and establish those persons on the said land for a period of time, usually two to six years. In theory, the law meant importation from overseas, but there are many known cases in which young men, women and children of colonists were listed as imports when in actuality they had either been born here or came here as imports with their parents. During the two to six years it took for the patent to be granted, the imported settlers were sponsored by the colonists. At the end of the period, they were given an acreage,usually ten to twenty acres, and were free and clear. All of this was determined by the terms of the indenture they had signed previously. If a settler could pay his own transportation fee, he usually came over on his own, but even then he might legally be considered imported by the colonist for whom he worked. ***** VIRGINIA LAND GRANTS AND PATENTS: Patent 10, p 101 Nov 13, 1673 Isle of Wight, Virginia 220 acres on south side of main Blackwater Swamp Begg. & c. on the west side of Nottoway Swamp and corner tree of William Williams land ***** VIRGINIA LAND GRANTS AND PATENTS: Patent 15, p 452 February 27, 1634 Prince George County, Virginia 6778 acres upper side of Flatt Creek between line of Bolling Pride, Morton Stephens and c. ***** VIRGINIA LAND GRANTS AND PATENTS: Patent 7, p240 He was also granted 366 acres of land in Isle of Wight County, Virginia on the south side of Kinsale S.W., April 16, 1683, p 240.

Source: William & Mary Quarterly *** THE HISTORY of PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY VIRGINIA CHAPTER II NATURAL CONDITIONS The surveying party now passed beyond the present confines of Pittsylvania County and became very fearful of encountering some of the northern Indians, for they saw signs of their encampments, but happily none of the savages were met with. The next two rivers were named Irwin and Mayo in honor of the two surveyors, Alexander Irwin and William Mayo. Six fat bears were brought in the night they camped on Mayo River, one bear being so fat that there was no way to kill him except by firing into his ear. The surveying party brought their bread with them and depended upon the game of the country for meat, which was found in abundance after reaching the section which later became Pittsylvania--deer, bear, buffalo and wild turkey were plentiful since no settlers had yet come in to disturb them. And to show their gratitude for being thus fed "by Heaven in the great and solitary wilderness," they agreed to wear in their hats the maosti, which is in Indian language the beard of the wild turkey cock, and on their breasts the figure of the bird with wings extended, holding in his claws this motto "Vici Coturnicum," which meant that they were fed in the wilderness like Moses and the children of Israel, but with wild turkey instead of quail. *** Isle of Wight Quit Rent Rolls: 1704 - William Mayo ***** William Bradshaw 28 Feb 1742: William May and wife, Martha Mayo, to George Murill, Jr. for Love and Affection... 100 acres on Blackwater adjoining Dumpling Island Branch and William Bradshaw.
