Families covered: Standish of Duxbury

Hugh de Standish
m. (1306) Alice Molyneux (dau of Sir Richard Molyneux of Sefton)
1. William de Standish (d young)
2. Richard de Standish of Duxbury (a 1336)
  A. Hugh Standish of Duxbury
  m. (1369) Alice Standish (dau of Henry de Standish of Standish)
i. Christopher Standish of Duxbury (3rd son)
  Dugdale starts with this Christopher but (we presume wrongly) identifies him as 2nd son of a Standish of Standish.
  m. (1386-7) Margaret Fleming (dau of Sir Thomas Fleming)
  a. Ralph Standish of Duxbury (dsp c1420)
  m. Joan Gerrard (dau of Sir Thomas Gerrard)
  b. Sir Rowland Standish (dsp)
  c. James Standish of Duxbury (a 1467)
  m. Alice
(1) Christopher Standish of Duxbury
  m. Elizabeth Bradshaigh (dau of William Bradshaigh of Haigh)
  Commoners shows Christopher & Elizabeth as parents of James who by Alice was father of Christopher who was father of the following Sir Christopher. Not least because we think that the William Bradshaigh shown below as son-in-law of the following Christopher was nephew of the above Elizabeth Bradshaigh, we suspect that Commoners duplicated 2 generations and so omit them. That view is supported by Dugdale except that Dugdale, which identifies Alice Poole as the wife of the following Sir Christopher, omits this Christopher (and Elizabeth Bradshaigh) as well. It may be that there was just one Christopher and that he married both Elizabeth Bradshaigh & Alice Poole. We will review this further in due course.

  BEB1841 (Standish of Duxbury) identifies Alexander's wife as Margaret, daughter of Sir Ralph Assheton, Bart of Great Leaver and Whalley Abbey (who lived 1549-1644). BEB1841 (Assheton of Leaver) shows an Alice (b 1574, sister of that Sir Ralph and daughter of another Ralph) as having married Alexander. As dates are given for some other members of the Assheton family, but we have few dates for the Standish family of these generations, we follow the latter and show Alexander's wife as ...
