Richard MILES II was the son of Richard MILES I and Alice CHERRYE, of Hertfordshire England, likely in the Wormley or Great Munden region. He was born approximately 1597, in Great Munden, Hertfordshire. Both his parents died about 1628, and he seems to have married shortly afterwards, certainly by 1632. He and his wife, with their first three children, immigrated to New Haven region, first to Milford, and then later moved to New Haven where he owned property by 1643.
His first wife is unknown; their six children are the following, "Herts" = Hertsfordshire:
- Martha MILES [ancestor], b. abt 1633 Herts Eng., d. bef Dec 1662, East Haven CT; m. 20 Oct 1650 to George PARDEE, New Haven CT; 5 children [Mary PARDEE ancestor]
- Mary, b. abt 1635 Herts, d. 12 Sep 1730; m.1/ 12 Dec 1654 ti Jonathan Ince; children; m.2/ 22 Oct 1661 in Norwalk CT to Rev Thomas Hanford.
- Richard III, b. abt 1637 Herts, d. Boston MA; m. Experience Callicott
- Samuel, bap 22 Apr 1640, New Haven CT, d. 24 Dec 1678; m. 9 Apr 1667 to Hannah WILMOT, 5 children; Hannah's 2nd marr. to Miles MERWIN II, 3 children [Elizabeth MERWIN ancestor]

- John, b. Oct 1644, New Haven CT.
Richard died Jan. 7th, 1666/67 in New Haven, CT, having written his will December 28th, 1666.
Although a will is known of, and was probated by June 13th, 1667, six months later, I have not yet seen/found a copy of it. His second wife, Katherine, died almost 20 years later Jan. 8th, 1687/88, at the apparent age of 96 years, in Wallingford, CT, approximately 14 miles north of New Haven.
