About William Chandler, Jr.

Capt. William Chandler, a mariner, who married Elizabeth Lucy in 1714 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. What is interesting is that Capt. William is not related to any of the big four early New England Chandler families (William of Roxbury, William of Newbury, Roger of Concord, and Edmund of Duxbury). That means that Capt. William could be the progenitor of an entirely new line of Chandlers. Capt. William was supposed to have come from either London, England, Deptford, England or Ireland depending on the source.

  1. SEPTEMBER 2010 CHANDLER NEWS by Carol May

William Chandler was from Dedford County , Kent, England.

married 

  1. in Portsmouth ,N.H. on 22 Dec. 1714 to Elizabeth Lucy.  She was the daughter of Thomas Lucy & Elizabeth Brookings.
  • Occupation: Mariner
  •  Estate was admintered by son William Chandler in 1747.

Children:

  1.  William Chandler Pub. to Mary Pope 12 May 1739 
  2.  Benjamin Chandler
  3. Mary Chandler pub  15 May 1742 to John Marr
  4.  Lucy Chandler
  5.  Joseph Chandler
  6.  Samuel Chandler
  7.  Thomas Chandler m. Jane Marr
  8. Alexander Chandler
  9. Catherine Chandler Pub. to Benjamin Rand of Rye ,N.H.   6 Aug.,,1749
  10.  John Chandler

Those researching this family have reported the earliest Chandler ancestor to be identified is William Chandler Sr. He was a seaman and captain from Deptford, Dedford County, Kent, England, and sailed to America before 1700. Among his children was a son named William Chandler Jr.

William Chandler Jr. was born in Kittery, York County, Maine, where he died in 1748. He was married in 1714 in Massachusetts Bay Colony (present day Portsmouth, Maine) to Elizabeth Lucy, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Brookings) Lucy. William Jr. and Elizabeth had 10 children: William J., Benjamin, Mary, Lucy, Joseph, Thomas, Samuel, Alexander, Catherine and John.

The first son listed, William J. Chandler, was married to Mary Pope, and they reared at least two sons, Joseph and Eliphalet. William J. lived until 1756 and died in either Maine or New Hampshire.

However, it has been speculated that this Joseph was the son of Capt. William Chandler, a mariner, who married Elizabeth Lucy in 1714 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  What is interesting is that Capt. William is not related to any of the big four early New England Chandler families (William of Roxbury, William of Newbury, Roger of Concord, and Edmund of Duxbury).  That means that Capt. William could be the progenitor of an entirely new line of Chandlers. Capt. William was supposed to have come from either London, England, Deptford, England or Ireland depending on the source.

I alerted our member,Dick, and the Chandler Family Association about this ancestor of some of their Georgia Chandlers.  More research needs to be done to find out if, indeed, Capt. William did have male descendants.  

Descendants who are believed to be descended from Capt. William moved to Kittery, Maine,

Kittery is a confusing convergence of several Chandler families, including Edmund descendants, so figuring this out would be helpful for all Chandler researchers. 

The question remains were Eliphalet and Samuel descendants of Capt. William or were they descendants of one of the other Chandler families of the Kittery, Maine area?
