The society is dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the Standish genealogy and history. We chose the name Myles Standish Society instead of Standish Society in order to celebrate one of the most famous Standishes. Captain Myles Standish was born between 1583 and 1586 in either Lancashire, England or Ellenbane, Isle of Man. This of course is one subject of much discussion. Myles was one of the first people to step onto Plymouth Rock in 1620. The pilgrim died on October 3, 1656 in Duxbury, MA.
