  • Notes 
    • "A Genealogical History of the Clark and Worth Families": William Chandler was sworn a freeman in 1669, was constable of Andover in 1670, overseer in 1671, a juryman, and in 1680 an Andover selectman. Like all the Chandleres he was a blacksmith. He also kept an ordinary or "Publick House" at the "Sign of the Horse Shoe." In 1686 he was criticized by Captain John Osgood for selling strong drink, but many of the townsmen testified to his competence and good character. His license was renewed in 1692 on petition of his friends. With Andrew Peters and George Herrick as sureties, William bound himself not to permit "any playing at Dice, Cards, Tables, Quoits, Loggets, Bowles, Ninepins, Billiards or any other unlawful Game or Games in his house, yard, Garden, or Backside." August 24, 1658, Chandler married Mary, daughter of John Dane, "chirurgeon of Ipswich". She died May 10, 1679, and he married, October 8, 1679, Bridget (Henchman) Richardson, widow. Mr. Chandler died in 1698, leaving a will signed in a strong, flowing hand.

      From "English Origins of New England Families, Vol. II": William Chandler was brought to New England by his parents in 1637, and was admitted freeman in 1669. His will, dated 15 Sept. 1697, was proved 12 Dec. 1698."
