Mayhew was an employee of the Van Dorts, working at the fish stall in the marketplace and driving their carriage.
He was a rather fat man with big nose, hunch back and who is often seen either smoking a pipe or coughing.
He appeared at the background of the song "According To Plan".
Although he is dead, Mayhew never felt better as he can breathe better now. As a result, he is able to pass on the news of Victoria's new marriage to Victor Van Dort.
Mayhew was last seen at Emily and Victor's wedding along with an alive friend.
- "Giving your pardon, madame." - To Nell Van Dort while helping to enter at the carriage.
- "I guess they didn't want to waste the cake!" - To Victor Van Dort about Victoria's marriage to Lord Barkis Bittern.
