He was born in Rendleshammarker, Suffolk, the son of Simon Mawe born Epworthmarker, Lincolnshire, c. 1531 and Margery Wylde born Selbymarker, Yorkshiremarker, c. 1522.

He gained a BA degree from Peterhouse in 1592 and was elected a fellow in 1594, later becoming Master of Peterhouse on 16 November 1617. In 1621, he served as Prebend of Wells.
