MAYO Family History

Recorded as Mayhow, Mayhew, Mayo, Mayhou, Mayho, Mayow and others, this is an English surname but of either Hebrew or French origins. It is a nickname form of the very popular medieval personal name Matthew, but probably through the Norman-French pre 9th century version of Mahieu. Whether directly from Matthew or indirectly through Mahieu, the name was introduced into England by (in the main) the Normans after the famous conquest of 1066, and in particular, the 12th century crusaders, returning from the Holy Land.
