William Chandler
Birth: Oct. 12, 1595
Hertfordshire, England
Death: Jan. 26, 1641
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

William was Christened on 12 October 1595 at Bishopsgate, Stortford, Essex County, England.

William was a point maker (lace tags used before buttons).

He married Alice Thurgood on 29 January 1621 at Bishopsgate, Stortford, Essex County, England.

He married Annis Bayford Alcock on 06 November 1625 in Farnham, Essex County, England.

William came to New England approximately 1635 to 1637. He settled at Roxbury, Massachusetts.

He worked as a Tanner.

William became a freeman on 13 May 1640 at Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

William and Hannah were industrious, economical, sober, pious and respected. With Christian fortitude and submission they endured their trials, privations and dangers, of which they had a large share. They brought up a large family well and trained them in the way they should go, from which they did not depart.

He died on Sunday, 26 November 1641 at Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, at age 46 years, 3 months and 14 days according to the Roxbury Church records, "1641, month 11: day 26 and the records say "William Chandler a Christian and godly brother dyed of a Consumption."

- Biographical information provided by Find A Grave member, Nanny Almquist.

Vital Records of Roxbury Massachusetts to the Year 1849, Vol. 2, page 485: Death:
Willia[m] Chandler consumption, 26: 11m: 1640-41 C.R. 1
William Chandler householder, [housekeeper, CT R.] bur Jun 19 [19: 11m, CT.R., 1641

C.R. 1 = church record First Religious Society (Unitarian)
CT R = court records, Suffolk Co. Quarterly Court

[NOTE: For the second entry, if it pertains to the first, has a possible typo in the record because the 11th month in the calendar at the time would be the month of January/possibly even February. The calendar year at that time period started on Lady's Day which was on March 25 not January 1 which did not occur until 1752.]

In another source it states:

The New England Historic & Genealogical Register Vol. 3 July 1851 p. 334 Early Records of Boston:
Roxbury: Births & Burialls in Roxbury from the Yeare 1630, into the First Month 1645
William Chandler housekeeper buried 19 (11) 1641 Chandler

In the Chandler Genealogy written in 1883, by William Chandler, he cites 1641 throughout the bio sketch of William Chandler and Annis, his wife. Therefore it can be concluded that every entry agrees that the year of death is 1641 and not 1642.
