Mayes Genealogy & History

Mayes is a patronymic surname, from the diminutive May, descending from Matthew, ultimately from the Hebrew name Matityahu, meaning gift of God, and noted in the New Testament as Matthias. As with many biblical names, it enjoyed a resurgence in popularity during and after the Crusades, when many returning warriors and their families took new names in honor of their endeavor. Mayes family history begins in 1167, when William Mai was noted in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk. Mayes genealogy includes a few notable people, such as Cherokee Chiefs Joel and Samuel Mayes, international basketball player Clyde Mayes, and Bengals offensive tackle Rufus Mayes.
