Short Biography

Frances MAYE is the daughter of John ‘of Charterhouse’ MAYE Gent and Martha
BASKERFIELD[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. She was born Abt. 1581 in Charterhouse, Somerset, England, although her exact date of birth is unknown, she may have been born a little earlier then this date, but certainly not any later. [3]. Elizabethan girls often married at the age 12 and even younger especially within the ruling upper classes. Marriage was a completely different world from what we understand today and children as young as 3 years were often betrothed.
The Maye’s of Charterhouse were a wealthy Somerset family who rose to prominence during the Tudor period, they may even have supported Henry Tudor’s claim to the throne. The Battle of Bosworth Field happened on the 22 August 1485, about 100 years before Frances was born and it was immediately after this period that the family first appears in Charterhouse, Somerset. I have no evidence to suggest this, but life could easily have swayed the other way if they had not. Plus Somerset borders Wales (ancestral home of the Tudors) and it’s very likely the family had connections there.

During the reign of King Henry VIII the family rose even higher and Robert Maye (1512-1573), and a grandfather to Frances Maye was granted the Manor of Charterhouse by King Henry shortly after the dissolution of the monasteries.
The family’s wealth would have increased dramatically during this period because Charterhouse was connected to the mining of Iron and lead and the surviving account books of the Maye family at Charterhouse-Hidon dating from 1592-1614 demonstrate unquestionably their involvement in the mining industry in this area.

The family became so influential that Frances Maye’s brother’ John Maye of Charterhouse Heydon, esquire and Christopher Maye his son and heir apparent were responsible alongside many others for the founding of HM Prison Shepton Mallet in 1610 and in 1603 her brother John was also High Sheriff of Somerset.

Frances was born right in the middle of Queen Elizabeth I reign and a period in time often regarding as the Golden Years, the violent divide between Protestants and Catholics was still an ever-present issue, although it’s unlikely that these issues affected the Maye family who most certainly would have been a Protestant family.

Frances married sometime around 1592 to the wealthy John Minterne of Batcombe (1557 – 1631), between them they had about five children.

Frances is also mentioned in her husband’s Last Will and Testament dated 06 July 1631 in Batcombe, Dorset, England (Item I give and bequeath unto Frauncis my wife twenty pound[es] in gold, and two of my best feather bedd[es] furnished w[i]th two bedstead[es] to be Chosen by her ^ owne selfe w[i]th all her trunckes and Chest[es] and lynnen in her owne bedchamber) [4]. Mayo Coat of Arms was Sable, a chevron or between three rofes argent, a chief of the fecond [6].

Frances Maye is recorded on Page 71 of the Visitation of Dorsetshire 1623, showing the Minterne pedigree.

And the Maye of Charterhouse Pedigree recorded on page 49 of the visitations of Somerset 1591.

Frances Maye died sometime after 1631 and was most likely buried in Batcombe, Dorset where the Minterne family lived and where the family’s private crypt was.

there is no mention in Old Testament history of the horse or dog being used in hunting by the
Jews, Josephus records that Herod was a great sportsman ; and the addiction of the Franks
in later centuries to the chase is evidenced by the frequency with which not only the laity, but
also the clergy, were mentioned by the Provincial Councils as participating in hunting with ”
hounds, hawks and falcons ” ; and there are similar proofs of the habits of other Teutonic
nations subsequent to the introduction of Christianity. In Roman history allusion is made to the
pleasures of the chase (wild ass, boar, hare and fallow deer), but “not as the occupation of
gentlemen, chiefly being left to inferiors and professionals.” Without attempting a treatise upon
the history of hunting, it may be noted that the early inhabitants of Britain kept hunting dogs,
Alfred the great being at an early age an expert in the ” noble art ” of hunting. The
Anglo-Saxon Kings distinguished between the ” higher ” and the “lower” chase, the former
being “expressly for the King,” or ” those upon whom he had bestowed the pleasure of
sharing it,” the latter only allowed to proprietors of land. In temp. Henry VIII. buckhounds were
kenneled at Swinley, and in the reign of Charles II. (1684) ^ ^^^^ went away to Lord Petre’s
seat in Essex, ” only five of the followers got to the end of this 70-mile run, one being the
King’s brother, the Duke of York.” In 35 Elizabeth (1593), Newland Manor, Batcombe, Dorset,
was held at his death by John Minterne, Gentleman of the Queen, as of her honour of
Gloucester, by Knight’s Service. In 37 Elizabeth, William Minterne and John Minterne junr.,
Gentlemen, were appointed to the office of “Wood- ward and Custos of all the woods in
Dorset.” 60 SPORTING PARSONS OF THE OLD SCHOOL : Sir Francis Wolley, M.P. for
Hazelmere, son of Sir John Wolley, Latin Secretary to Queen Elizabeth, in 1609, bequeathed
his Lordship of the Manor of Thorpe St. Mary, Surrey, to his cousin, the above William
Minterne, Lord of the Manor of Batcombe and “Woodward and Custos of all the woods in
Dorset,” whose family in the female line — the Leigh-Bennetts — own the Manor at the
present day. This was a very important Court appointment, when the “wooden walls”
constituted England’s first line of defence, and the extensive forests were also closely
preserved for the diversion of the Court. In the Church of Batcombe, dedicated to St. Mary, is
a chapel built as a burying place for the Minterne family, and in the south aisle, formerly
belonging to the Minterne’s of Newland, upon a broken stone which belonged to a monu-
ment now destroyed, were the arms of Minterne, viz. : ” Azure, two bars barry ar. between
three lions passant guardant or ” : the same as on a monument in Yetminster Church
impaling Browne of Frampton Court. Descendants of this ancient sporting family are to be
found in the U.S.A., where the name is spelled Minturn ; here they settled in 1620, and have
attained considerable eminence as Senators, Judges, Lawyers and Merchants ; their public
spirit and philanthropy being manifested in the erection and endowment of hospitals and other
institu- tions in the City of New York, and elsewhere.* An i8th Century Sporting Parson. In the
” Alumni Oxoniensis ” Members of the University of Oxford, 1715-1886 (by T. Foster, 1888),
maybe found the name of ” Henry Mintern, matric. 10 March 1717, B.A. 1721,” who was
Rector of Cheddington, Dorset, 1723-41 ; * Within the last half-century several members of the
expatriated branch have become re-united to the Old Country by marriage into families who
may be found in the Peerage, Baronetage, and landed gentry of Great Britain.
