The ancestors of the Standage family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived at Standish (St Nicolas), a parish in the union of Wheaten hurst, Upper division of the hundred of Whitstone, in Gloucestershire.

Standage Early Origins



The surname Standage was first found in Gloucestershire where they are conjecturally they are descended from Earl Hugh of Standish, who was undertenant of the Archbishop of York. However, Standish (St.Wilfrid), is a parish, in the unions of Wigan and Chorley, hundred of Leyland, Lancashire. It is believed that this place was anciently named Stanedich and was one of the largest towns in the south of Lancashire in which the Saxons built fortified castles for the residence of their chiefs. The castle of Standish, or its ruins have long been lost, but one of the first records of the surname was Jordan de Standish who was named in connection with the manor in area during the reign of Edward I. Standish Hall is a large brick mansion of irregular form, long the seat of the Standish family. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Standage arrived in North America very early: Dorothy Standich who settled in Virginia in 1635; Sarah Standidge settled in New England in 1753; James Standish settled in Virginia in 1623; George Standish with his wife Dorothy settled in Virginia in 1643. and Captain Miles Standish sailed on the "Mayflower" in 1620.
