Mayow, Robert Wynell
Mayow, Robert Wynell an English divine, was born at Saltash, in the latter half of the 17th century (1777); was educated at Exeter College, Oxford; and, after serving several curacies in succession, removed to Ardwick, near Manchester, but there he died, only three months after removal, in 1817. Mr. Mayow is highly spoken of as a pulpit orator. A noted English writer has compared him with Sterne for his great humor and strong feeling, which the two possessed in common. He published Plain Preaching, or Sermons for the Poor and for People of all Ranks (Lond. 1816, 12mo):— Sermons and Miscellaneous Pieces, to which is prefixed a Memoir of his Life (1822, 12mo). — Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer.
