Anne MAYOR       (ID #I7920)

(female)
Father: Jaques MAYOR (bp. 6 JAN 1624, d. AFT 1671)
Mother: Susanne FAVRE (bp. 29 SEP 1626, d. AFT 1671)

Family 1 : Estienne Gabriel MAYOR (b. BEF 1657, d. BEF 1734)
  1.  Jeanne Judith MAYOR (bp. 22 JUN 1683)
  2.  Henry MAYOR (bp. 29 DEC 1687)
  3.  Benjamin MAYOR (bp. 30 MAR 1690)

That Anne Mayor wife of Estienne Gabriel Mayor belongs here is proven by several documents of Daniel Marmet, notary. On 09 oct 1716, Marc Estienne Mayor d'Aubonne sells property inherited from his father Benjamin Mayor to his uncle Estienne Gabriel Mayor of Mollens. On 06 oct 1716, Anne Mayor wife of Estienne Gabriel Mayor has a dispute with Marc Estienne Mayor her nephew over this estate. On 05 jul 1717, Marc acts on behalf of an unnamed brother and sister, and references his uncle the Curial of Aubonne (Jean George).

Anne Jeanne Georgette MAYOR       (ID #I4506)

(female)
Father: Isaac Samuel MAYOR (bp. 13 JAN 1715, d. 6 SEP 1804)
Mother: Rose Susanne NIVET (b. 30 DEC 1742)

Georgette Mayor is listed among catechumens taking first communion 18 mar 1788 at Bière, residence listed as Ballens.

Documentation of her death has turned up in the minutes of the town council of Lausanne:

Procès-verbaux de la Municipalité de Lausanne, RB 14/6, p. 667.

Du 8e Janvier 1810. Enfans de Jean fils de feu Abram Marcel.

Lecture est faite d'une lettre datée de Ballens le 5e Janvier courant, et signé Monod, Greffier, par laquelle nous somme informés que Georgette née Mayor femme du citoyen Jean fils de feu Abram Marcel, petit Bourgeois de Lausanne, étant décédée en Amérique, où elle s'était rendue en 1805 avec son mari, laissant quatre enfans qui sont propriétaires rière Ballens de quelques petits fonds provenant de feu leur mère, et que la Justice de Paix du dit lieu n'ayant pas jugé convenable de donner un tuteur aux dits enfans, nous sommes avisés de cette circonstance, vû les droits des dits enfans à la Bourgeoisie de Lausanne. Sur quoi délibérant nous avons décidé qu'il serait écrit un réponse que vû que les dits enfans ont conservé leur précédent domicile de droit et que la situation des fonds qui leur proviennent de leur mère ne peut permettre la nomination d'un tuteur à Lausanne à cause des frais d'administration qui en résulteraient, nous prions la Justice de Paix de Ballens de pourvoir à cette tutelle selon sa prudence.

Since it would certainly take weeks for the news of her death to reach Switzerland, we can assume that Georgette must have died no later than November, 1809. It is assumed that further mentions will be found in the records of the notaries of the district of Aubonne about 1810 — in particular, those of the notary Jaques Monod whose records survive from this period, very probably the same Monod of Ballens mentioned above.

The date 08 jan 1810 has become established as her death date in the Ancestral File and other American sources likely because of a misunderstanding of the French version of a document in the Marcel dossier at the Archives de la Ville de Lausanne. The text says, "Le 8 janvier 1810, Georgette Marcel née Mayor est décédée..." (leaving four children, etc.). Without knowledge of the account in the Procès-verbaux, above, we would be tempted to translate this as "The 8th of January 1810, Georgette Marcel née Mayor died". However, the grammatical situation is actually the past perfect tense, which should be rendered in English as "Georgette Marcel has died", with the implication that her death occurred sometime prior to the date given. The true date of her death was undoubtedly included in correspondence received by the authorities in Ballens, but it was apparently not communicated to Lausanne.

[1570]

Date given as 08 jan 1810 in Ancestral File (based on information from the archivist of Lausanne), but another group sheet submitted for IGI (batch 5007003, film #1553353) has 1812 Lexington, KY! Actual date must be no later than November, 1809.

Annonces de Marriages de Lausanne, 1790-1800, p. 143. Banns were published 16, 23, and 30 jul 1797, giving names of his parents and of her father. Marriage recorded at Apples, notes his residence at Bière.

Mentioned in document of emancipation of 1722, Daniel Marmet notary. The document is ambiguous; a sister Judith Mayor is mentioned, but it is not clear if she was the sister of Benjamin or of his father.

Claude MAYOR       (ID #I25376)

(male)
Father: Jaques MAYOR (dates unknown)

Family 1 : Pernon BELLOSAT (dates unknown)

This is the Claude Mayor identified as a notary, but deceased before 31 mar 1569 when the younger notary Claude Mayor, probably the son of the present Claude, recorded an exchange of property between Hugoz Meuraz bourgeois d'Aubonne, for his wife Guilliamaz, and Jean Folliex bourgeois d'Aubonne (ACV DB 26/1 fol. 93). The property that Meuraz conveyed to Folliex in this transaction was a vineyard at Aubonne, "en Cursillie", adjoining property of wife of Meuraz, property of Claude Clavel, property of Noble Michel de Lavigny, and "la vigne de Pernon fillie de feuz mre. Pierre Bellosat (or Bollosat?) relicte de feuz egrege Glaude Mayor".

The younger notary Claude Mayor also recorded a complex transaction 04 jan 1613 (ACV DB 26/2 fol. 36) which strongly suggests a close connection between the younger and the elder notaries. The transaction involves a vineyard at Aubonne "en Nonsering" which had been sold by Noble François de Sivirier of Aubonne to Claudaz, daughter of the late Maistre Pierre Bollossat, bourgeois d'Aubonne for 60 florins on 20 jan 1538, recorded by Egrège Guillaume Billiard. Later, 09 dec 1538, de Sivirier had also sold his rights of redemption of that property to Claudaz. After the death of de Sivirier a legal process ensued, during which the claim to the vineyard was disputed. After a review of the documents and payment of taxes due, the vineyard had been awarded to the heirs of Claudaz, namely the late Egrège Claude Mayor and his wife, the daughter of the said Claudaz, 10 may 1554. (This would make sense if Claudaz had been the only one of the daughters of Pierre Bollosat to have left heirs.) Then, 29 apr 1610, the younger notary Claude Mayor, "cause ayant des susdits achepteurs" (meaning, in effect, he was in some sense the legal successor of the elder notary), had ceded the property to Pierre son of François Mayor. That much constitutes the history of the vineyard. Then, 04 jan 1613, the said Pierre Mayor sold all of his rights to the vineyard, which was security for a loan to Odet Moné, minister at Perroys, for a total of 600 florins, to Jaques Vochy, bourgeois d'Aubonne. The younger notary Claude Mayor could record this document because he had already sold his interest in the property. He would not have recorded transactions in which he was a party, and so his records tell us nothing further about his relationship to the elder Claude.

From a variety of sources, it is clear that Louis Mayor of Ballens was the son of the elder notary Claude Mayor. Further, there are mentions in the terriers suggesting that the (younger) notary Claude Mayor was a brother of Louis Mayor, a conclusion that we have accepted tentatively. Among other interesting documents, a "reconnaissance" dated 23 dec 1622 in the terrier for Ballens (ACV FH 175 fol. 11v), regarding property owned by Isaac son of the late Jaques Convers who was son of Jean Convers, cites a previous reconnaissance dated 01 mar 1570 from the previous terrier, compiled by George Dunant and Pierre Tripod, for property acknowledged by Discret Claude, Louis, and François, sons of the late Egrège Claude Mayor. "Discret Claude Mayor" must be the younger notary, and the late Egrège Claude Mayor must be the older notary, the one who had married Pernon Bollosat. While we can follow the descendance of Louis, we are not sure which François was the son of the elder Claude. Louis, son of the late Egrège Claude Mayor, made a "reconnaissance" on 16 jun1623 (fol. 90 of the same terrier ACV FH 175), in the course of which he is said to be the son of Egrège Claude the son of Jaques, who was apparently the son of Pierre Mayor (with reference to terriers of 1570 and one prior to that, possibly about 1516). The wording of the several references to François Mayor whose guardian in 1570 was Claude Mayor de Mollens seems to imply that this was not the François who was the brother of Louis and Claude.

With this background, it is possible to see in the terrier ACV FH 31 (undated, believed to be from about 1580-1585) a possible genealogy of these people: At that time, Discret Claude Mayor and his brothers Louis and François held a 1/4 interest in various properties. Another 1/4 was held by Jaques Mayor son of Pierre, and his nephews Sulpice and Pierre, sons of François Mayor. (From this we propose that Egrège Claude, the elder notary, was the brother of the Pierre who had sons Jaques and the late François.) The remaining 1/2 of these properties was held by François son of the late Claude Mayor. This proportion would result if the latter François was the sole heir of his father Claude, who would in turn have been the only brother of Jaques, father of the elder notary. The property from Pierre, father of these two brothers Jaques and Claude must have descended to them undivided, and then to their respective sons, and then, still undivided, to the next generation.

Parentage is listed as fille de Jaques Maté alias Mayor. If Claudine is indeed the daughter of Jaques Mayor of Mollens, that means some or all of the Mathey records could belong with the Mayor family. This was the Claudine dau. of the late Jaques Mayor of Mollens whose marriage contract to Thieven son of the late Jean (?) Cohendoz is recorded 04 nov 1599 by Claude Mayor notary. This document features her brother Estienne, whose marriage contract to Esther Tripod is dated 06 nov 1599.

Mother: Urbaine (Jeanne Urbaine) REVERDIL (bp. 7 DEC 1644, d. AFT 1688)

Family 1 : Felix ROCHAT (dates unknown)

This is the Catherine Mayor who married Felix Rochat and appeared at various baptisms at Bière 1714, 1720, etc. It is still not know where this family lived, as no baptisms of their children have yet been found. Her baptism was found at Nyon, but it is likely that the baptisms of several of her siblings were performed at Bière, where there is a long gap in the records.

[2598]

Parents listed as Pierre Mayor and Urbaine Reverdil, presented by Egrege et prudom Claude Damond Banderet de Nyon & Emilia Catherine de Crol sa femme.

At baptism of Jean David Emanuel Failletaz, 07 may 1720, Morges, Jean Samuel Mayor, Conseiller et Capitaine, and his brother David Mayor, appear as witnesses. However, the Jean Samuel of Morges may prove to be a different person from the Jean Samuel of Bière.
