  • Notes 
    • Concerning the complex and controversial lineage of the family of Edmund Chandler, the current lineage given here for daughter Lydia wife of Richard Higgins appears to be correct per the Edmund Chandler Family Association.

      In Edmund's will, Lydia's name is absent because she was deceased:
      [Pope, p. 93]: Edmund Chandler/Chaundler, creditor of Godbert Godbertson, frm 1633; res. at D uxbury 1636-7; constable; appraiser of est. of Wm. Thomas. Will dated 3 May, prob. 4 June 1662, being old. Req. to children Samuel, Benjamin, Joseph, Sarah, Ann, Mary and Ruth.
