CHANDLER

CHANDLER

Most people carrying the surname CHANDLER are descendants of people who got the name because they dealt with candles or lighting.  A very small few however, descend from one or more le Chaundeler who migrated to England from Normandy around the year 1200.

The CHANDLER name can be found in Medieval times in England.  It can also be found in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated Britain.

The name was first found in Lancashire where the Chandlers held a family seat that dated back to ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.. 

In America there were Chandler Automobiles. Today there is even a Chandler Standard Six automobile on display at the museum in Norwich, New York. In England there are Chandler guitars.  The USS Chandler was a US Navy Destroyer ship.  There are computer programs under the name of Chandler.  The Chandeleur islands in the Gulf of Mexico make up the easternmost point of the state of Louisiana.  La Chandeleur is a French Festival that is the equivalent of Candlemas in English-speaking countries. Chandler shoes once claimed to be the world's most beautiful shoes. Chandler is even in space!  There is a crater on the moon named Chandler.

In the US in the year 2000 the Chandler name was the 379th most common name.

Check back often for additions.  I will be linking the (memorial coming soon) people to their memorial posts.  As I find obit on people who are not direct ancestors I add it to the Memorials for Other Relatives post, so check it frequently as well.  This tree is ever evolving, I have lots of leaves/hints to check on a lot of these people, so information may become more detailed as well.  I plan on doing this while going through each ancestor's descendant list.

If any of these people appear in your family tree or you have the CHANDLER surname in your family tree, please check my CHANDLER Family & Genealogy group on Facebook.

  1. Hi Christa:
    Just read your question on Family Tree Maker with MacKiev and Roots Magic. I believe you are on the right track with your thinking. Of course, there will probably be additional costs involved when going over to the MacKiev program; specifically, if they have updates. And I'm sure they will. Go to the FAQ page at MacKiev for additional info: http://www.mackiev.com/familytreemaker/ftm3/faq.html
