Dates of existence
Margaret Jane Hill (Mayo) Chancey (1871/2-1941), diarist, was born in St. John's, Newfoundland, the daughter of Rebecca (Butler) and William Mayo, and the youngest of three children. On 8 August 1901 Margaret married Lloyd Tocque Chancey of St. John's, a barber. They had three sons and one daughter. Lloyd Chancey died on 26 September 1931. Margaret Mayo Chancey died on 19 September 1941.
The Mayo family lived at 31 Cookstown Road, a middle-class residential area in St. John's and attended Gower Street Methodist Church. There is little information for Margaret Mayo's life, beyond the activities detailed in her diary. It is likely that she attended the Methodist Academy on Long's Hill. There is no indication in the diary that she worked following the completion of school. Her days, as recorded in her diary, were typically filled with shopping, visiting and attending church services and other church- related functions.
Following her marriage in 1901, Margaret and Lloyd Chancey lived at Richmond Cottage on Freshwater Road, but following the death of her father, the family moved in with Margaret's mother, Rebecca. She also began attending her husband's church, the Congregational Church, Queen's Road, where she sang in the choir. She died in 1941, following a lengthy illness.
