      STANDISH, *ALEXANDER, Duxbury, eldest s. of Capt. Miles, m. Sarah,
      d. of John Alden, had Miles, Ebenezer, b. 1672; Lora; Lydia; Mercy;
      Sarah; Elizabeth and perhaps David. By sec. w. Desire, d. of Edward
      Doty, wh. had been wid. of Israel Holmes, and first of William
      [[vol. 4, p. 162]] Sherman, he had Thomas, in 1687; Desire, 1689;
      and Ichabod. JAMES, Salem 1638, freem. 13 May 1640, when the name
      is writ. Standige, prob. had w. Sarah, and was one of the pentnrs.
      1640 for grant at Jeffery's creek, now Manchester, but of Lynn
      1642, and d. Nov. 1679.

      *JOSIAH, Duxbury, br. of Alexander, m. 19 Dec. 1654, Mary Dingley,
      d. perhaps of John, wh. was bur. 1 July 1665, as was her br. John
      eight days aft.; had sev. ch. by her and also by sec. w. Sarah, d.
      of Samuel Allen of Braintree, Miles, Josiah, Samuel, Israel, Mary,
      Lois, Mehitable, Martha, and Mercy, tho. we can never assign the
      respect. ch. to ea. w. was lieut. rep. 1665 and sixteen yrs. more.
      He rem. a. 1686 to Preston, where he d. 1690. His wid. Sarah and s.
      Miles had admin. of his est. His d. Mercy m. 30 Sept. 1726, Ralph
      Wheelock, as his sec. w. and was not mo. of Rev. Eleazer, the first
      Presid. of Dartmouth Coll. ( as oft. said in books) insasmuch as he
      was b. more than fifteen yrs. bef. that m. and his mo. was Ruth, d.
      of the sec. Christopher Huntington. Equal. unsound is the derivat.
      of that more disting. Presid. Kirkland of Harv. Univ. from the same
      Mercy (as told in many places), gr. mo. gr.mo. was Sarah, d. of
      Ruth, first w. of the said Ralph, not of the sec. w. Mercy
      Standish. See full illustrat. by Weaver, in Geneal, Reg. XIV. 376.

      MILES, or MYLES, Duxbury, the celebr. capt. of the pilgr. of the
      Mayflower, was b. in Lancashire, being a cadet, it was said, of the
      old house of Standish, long estab. with good landed posses. at
      Dusbury, a town of the parish of Standish in the Co. close to
      Wigan, 9 ms. from Bolton, and a. 20 ms. N. E. of Liverpool. He had
      been at Leyden some yrs. bef. the emb. 1620, but we are ign.
      whether he had ch. at that time, tho. certain that he brot. nobody,
      beside w. Rose, wh. d. 29 Jan. one mo.aft. the land. His next w.
      Barbara, came in the Ann 1623, and was prob. the mo. of some that
      were d. and of all his ch. as nam. in his will of 7 Mar. 1656,
      Alexander, Miles, Josiah, and Charles, beside d. Lora. Of these
      last two, we kn. nothing, and if indulg. in conject. we might
      assume only, that both were old eno. to have been notic. in the
      ensuing days. He was constant. engag. in public serv. and for 19
      yrs. was an assit. and had a mission ot London in 1625, where he
      could effect little on acco. of the raging of the plague, and early
      in the spring foll. he came back. Of his character, wh. partook, in
      no small degree, of the ancient heroic, Belknap in Americ. Biog.
      furnishes excellent illustr. and just anaysis. He d. 3 Oct. 1656. A
      copy of his will and inv. may be seen in Geneal. Reg. V. 335-8.

      MILES, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 19 July 1660, Sarah, d. of John
      Winslow, had no ch. and d. on a voyage to London, the sh. never
      heard of. His wid. m. 1665, Tobias Paine, and last Richard
      Middlecot, wh. she surv. THOMAS, Wethersfield, a soldier in the
      Pequot war 1637, had gr. of ld. on that [[vol. 4, p. 163]] acco.

              STANDISH, *ALEXANDER, Duxbury, eldest s. of Capt. Miles, m. Sarah,
              d. of John Alden, had Miles, Ebenezer, b. 1672; Lora; Lydia; Mercy;
              Sarah; Elizabeth and perhaps David. By sec. w. Desire, d. of Edward
              Doty, wh. had been wid. of Israel Holmes, and first of William
              [[vol. 4, p. 162]] Sherman, he had Thomas, in 1687; Desire, 1689;
              and Ichabod. JAMES, Salem 1638, freem. 13 May 1640, when the name
              is writ. Standige, prob. had w. Sarah, and was one of the pentnrs.
              1640 for grant at Jeffery's creek, now Manchester, but of Lynn
              1642, and d. Nov. 1679.

              *JOSIAH, Duxbury, br. of Alexander, m. 19 Dec. 1654, Mary Dingley,
              d. perhaps of John, wh. was bur. 1 July 1665, as was her br. John
              eight days aft.; had sev. ch. by her and also by sec. w. Sarah, d.
              of Samuel Allen of Braintree, Miles, Josiah, Samuel, Israel, Mary,
              Lois, Mehitable, Martha, and Mercy, tho. we can never assign the
              respect. ch. to ea. w. was lieut. rep. 1665 and sixteen yrs. more.
              He rem. a. 1686 to Preston, where he d. 1690. His wid. Sarah and s.
              Miles had admin. of his est. His d. Mercy m. 30 Sept. 1726, Ralph
              Wheelock, as his sec. w. and was not mo. of Rev. Eleazer, the first
              Presid. of Dartmouth Coll. ( as oft. said in books) insasmuch as he
              was b. more than fifteen yrs. bef. that m. and his mo. was Ruth, d.
              of the sec. Christopher Huntington. Equal. unsound is the derivat.
              of that more disting. Presid. Kirkland of Harv. Univ. from the same
              Mercy (as told in many places), gr. mo. gr.mo. was Sarah, d. of
              Ruth, first w. of the said Ralph, not of the sec. w. Mercy
              Standish. See full illustrat. by Weaver, in Geneal, Reg. XIV. 376.

              MILES, or MYLES, Duxbury, the celebr. capt. of the pilgr. of the
              Mayflower, was b. in Lancashire, being a cadet, it was said, of the
              old house of Standish, long estab. with good landed posses. at
              Dusbury, a town of the parish of Standish in the Co. close to
              Wigan, 9 ms. from Bolton, and a. 20 ms. N. E. of Liverpool. He had
              been at Leyden some yrs. bef. the emb. 1620, but we are ign.
              whether he had ch. at that time, tho. certain that he brot. nobody,
              beside w. Rose, wh. d. 29 Jan. one mo.aft. the land. His next w.
              Barbara, came in the Ann 1623, and was prob. the mo. of some that
              were d. and of all his ch. as nam. in his will of 7 Mar. 1656,
              Alexander, Miles, Josiah, and Charles, beside d. Lora. Of these
              last two, we kn. nothing, and if indulg. in conject. we might
              assume only, that both were old eno. to have been notic. in the
              ensuing days. He was constant. engag. in public serv. and for 19
              yrs. was an assit. and had a mission ot London in 1625, where he
              could effect little on acco. of the raging of the plague, and early
              in the spring foll. he came back. Of his character, wh. partook, in
              no small degree, of the ancient heroic, Belknap in Americ. Biog.
              furnishes excellent illustr. and just anaysis. He d. 3 Oct. 1656. A
              copy of his will and inv. may be seen in Geneal. Reg. V. 335-8.

              MILES, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 19 July 1660, Sarah, d. of John
              Winslow, had no ch. and d. on a voyage to London, the sh. never
              heard of. His wid. m. 1665, Tobias Paine, and last Richard
              Middlecot, wh. she surv. THOMAS, Wethersfield, a soldier in the

              d. the same yr. aged 68. Perhaps she was sec. w. but prob. mo. of
              Eunice. He had, also, s. Thomas, and perhaps more ch.
