Surname: Chandler

The Chandler surname is part of Rosmer P. Kerr's heritage. His eighth great-grandfather is thought to be:
  • Edmund Chandler, of Duxbury and Scituate. If correct, Edmund and his wife were my tenth great-grandparents. Apparently there is no proof, however, and some think that Roger Chandler, not Edmund, may have been the father of...
  • Lydia Chandler, wife of Richard Higgins. They were married late in 1634. Lydia died before 1650, leaving two sons. Lydia and Richard were my ninth great-grandparents.

Higgins, Mrs. Katharine Elizabeth Chapin. Richard Higgins, A Resident and Pioneer Settler at Plymouth and Eastham, Massachusetts, and at Piscataway, New Jersey, and His Descendants. 1918.
