About Anne Myles


From Hylborn Family Ancestry Project

Regarding Anne, daughter of John Humphrey, Lewis states that “she married William Palmer of Ardfinan, Ireland, and afterward, the Rev. John Miles, of Swanzcy” and that he had in his possession a deed signed by her, and sealed with the arms of the house of Lincoln (due to her connection to her step-mother, her father’s third wife, Lady Susan Clinton, otherwise Fiennes).  The date of her second marriage to John Myles is not known, but presumably it was after 1662 when John Myles emigrated from Wales to Massachusetts and before about 1668, based on the birth date of their daughter Hannah Myles (1669).
