1886-88, (w), ''The Supplemental Nights to the Thousand Nights and a Night'':
- Now when he had reached the King's capital wherein was Alaeddin, he alighted at one of the Kháns; and, when he had rested from the weariness of wayfare, he donned his dress and went down to wander about the streets, where he never passed a group without hearing them prate about the pavilion and its grandeur and vaunt the beauty of Alaeddin and his lovesomeness, his liberality and generosity, his fine manners and his good morals.
(quote-book)|page=25|text=In 1851 the Great Northern Railway had reached London and began operating into a terminus at Maiden Lane, just north of the New Road renamed Euston Road. In 1854 they moved up to the New Road itself, with the opening of King's Cross station, east of Euston. The railways were alighting on the New Road like birds perching on a branch (the Midland Railway would open St Pancras, between Euston and King's Cross in 1868), and Pearson took note.
To find by accident; to upon.
1590, Edmund Spenser, ''The Faerie Queene'', I.iii:

To set light to; light.
