The Maynard history in America begins with John Maynard, immigrant ancestor, born in England in 1600, died at Sudbury, Mass., Dec. 10, 1672. In early records his name is spelled Mynard, Minor and Maynard. He settled first at Cambridge, Mass. in 1634. He was one of the first settlers of Sudbury, Mass., in 1638, and one of the forty-seven who shared in the division of the Meadow canals, along the Sudbury river in 1639. He was admitted a freeman in 1644, and was selectman in 1646 and held other offices. By trade a malster.
He married (first) in England, and probably brought his wife to America with him, but this can only be conjectured as the records are silent. He married (second) June 14, 1646, Mary Axtell, either daughter or widow of Thomas Axtell. His will left bequets to wife, Mary, children: John, Zachery, Mrs. Elizabeth Graves, Lydia Moore and Mary Maynard. He was successful throughout his entire life and left a goodly estate for distribution among his heirs.
