The area which is now Madison County was originally inhabited by the Creek and Cherokee Indians. By 1773, most of this land was ceded by the Cherokee Indians to the Colonial Governor of Georgia, opening the area to frontier settlement. Two large counties were formed out of this land; Wilkes County in 1777 and Franklin County in 1784. After the American Revolution, settlers were encouraged to migrate to the new counties by the State’s Headright Grant system; each settler was granted acreage based on number of heads (wife, children, and slaves) in his family. Georgia’s Revolutionary War soldiers were also awarded bounty grants as payment for their loyal service. Several forts were built in Madison County -- Hillhouse Forge near Comer, Hillhouse Furnace near Rogers Mill, Hones Station (later named Fort Lamar), and Black Station near Black’s Creek and the Hudson River.

Wilkes and Franklin were soon divided into several smaller counties, and Madison was subsequently formed in 1811 from 281 square miles of Elbert, Franklin, Clarke and Oglethorpe Counties, becoming Georgia’s 38th county.

The earliest permanent settlement was in the Paoli area, settled mainly by pioneers from Virginia, Pennsylvania and the Carolinas. Madison County existed primarily as an agricultural community for most of its history. In 1860, 84% of the county’s population farmed. Farmers grew corn, beans and pumpkin at the start of the 19th century. Eventually the agricultural base of the county began to diversify and cotton, beef, dairy and oats were grown. The soils of Madison County were heavily damaged by the cotton monoculture common in this region prior to the 1930s. Presently, 23% of the land is considered prime agricultural land. Agribusiness dominates the local economy, with poultry and egg production particularly important.

64. Sr. Robert Chandler, Sr., born Abt. 1626 in Elizabeth City, VA; died Bef. April 12, 1669 in York Co., VA. He was the son of 128. John Chandler I and 129. Elizabeth (TheWidow) Lupo. He married 65. Elizabeth Bet. 1644 - 1646 in York Co., VA.
65. Elizabeth, born Abt. 1628; died WFT Est. 1657-1722.

Notes for Sr. Robert Chandler, Sr.:
BIRTH: "Robert(2) Chandler, b. ca, 1626, d. 1669, was the son of John(1) Chandler who immigrated to Jamestown, VA in 1609. As a rationale for this father/son relationship: The immigrants following John Chandler were Richard, Arthur, Thomas and William, who came to VA during the period 1622-38 and in every case each survived but a brief time. Job Chandler, who arrived in 1648, was the second Chandler immigrant to VA who was known to survive for an extended period. Thus John(1), b. ca. 1600, and his sons, Robert(2), b. ca. 1626, and John(2), b. ca. 1635, were the only known Chandlers with extended tenure in VA until 1648. Further, it is known that no Robert Chandler of record immigrated to VA during the period 1609-64. Robert(2) was born ca. 1626 - this date being derived from the several proven records of his tenure in VA as a young adult and from the text of his will recorded in 1669. His birthplace would therefore, have been in Kiccoughton (also called Elizabeth Cittie) as it is well established that John(1) lived there at that time. The name of Robert's mother, nor the time of her death is not known. However, John(1) was married by 1636 to Elizabeth - apparently Elizabeth Lupo."

Notes for John Chandler I:


Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out, On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care, It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist, You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you, In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse, Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.

John Chandler landed in Jamestown in 1610. He is said to have been a 9 yr old survivor of the Starvation time in Jamestown! However various records have varying dates as to the landing of the Hercules at Jamestown. 1609/1610/1611...take your pick. Of what we are certain, he was aboard the Hercules, he was listed as a single gentleman, and he made it to Jamestown within the three years listed. He did for certain survive the Indian Raids, as he was on the list of 1200 in 1620, and was on the 1623/24 list of the living and the dead, of which those 1200 were reduced to 60.

note the following excerpted from Source:
History of the United States of America, by Henry William Elson, The MacMillan Company, New York, 1904. Chapter IV pp. 60-73
Transcribed by Kathy Leigh

""Lord de La Warr, or Delaware, was appointed governor of Virginia under the charter of 1609. He embarked with nine ships and five hundred men and women for Virginia; but encountering a terrible storm off the Bermuda Islands, he was delayed at those islands for many months --and woe to Virginia in consequence! The "Starving Time" came. The Indians were now hostile and no food could be obtained from them. Men with blanched faces wandered about actually dying for food. The death rate was frightful. Of the five hundred left by Smith the fall before only sixty remained alive in the spring of 1610. These now decided to abandon Virginia and embark in the four little pinnaces that were left them, hoping to reach dear old England. Early in June they gathered together their meager possessions, and with the funeral roll of drums left their cabins behind. Sadly, yet joyfully, they floated down the river to its mouth, when lo! far off in the horizon they beheld a moving speck --and another and another! They waited --and up the bay swept the ships of Lord Delaware! They all now returned to Jamestown, and the colony of Virginia was born again. How slender the thread on which hung the infant life of the firstborn of the United States! ""

((Being that the ships the Prosperous, the Hercules, and the Starr were said to be part of this fleet, then this would mean that John was among those who were the rescuers of the Starvation Time survivors in Jamestown.))

""Delaware soon had the colony on its feet, but the next year he returned to England and sent Sir Thomas Dale to govern in his stead. Dale was a man of much ability and strength of character, and as Fiske aptly puts it, "Under his masterful guidance Virginia came out from the valley of the shadow of death." ""

((awww, but also it is said to be Sir thomas Dale that led the three ships to Jamestown...which would then mean that John Chandler did arrive in 1611......))

http://www.washburn.k12.il.us/mool/jamestow.htm states the following:

In 1606, James I of England wanted to start a colony in North America. With the help of other men, he created a joint-stock company. This company was the Virginia Company of London. Acting as the president of the company, James I gave the men three orders. He wanted them to find gold, find a route to the South Seas, and find the Lost Colony of Roanoke.

To encourage people to travel with the Virginia Company of London, they began to advertise. The Virginia Company of London tried to tell people about the wealth that they could find in North America.

In December of 1606, three ships left England to sail to North America. Over 150 men and boys started the journey in England. Admiral Christopher Newport was in charge of the three ship; the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and the Discovery. In May of 1607, 101 men and 4 boys landed on a semi-island in North America. They built their colony on the edge of a river. They named this river, the James River, after the King of England. The Native Americans called this river the Powhatan's River or Powhatan's Flu.

The location of Jamestown was picked because the colonists felt that it was easy to defend. Because the island was far up the James River, they felt that it would be out of sight from the Spanish. The semi-island was protected on three sides by the river and marshes. This made it difficult for others to reach Jamestown.

This location was a swamp. Swamps are not healthy locations. Getting fresh water is a major problem in a swamp. Swamps attract mosquitos. These mosquitos often carry many types of diseases. This location that John Smith said was "heaven" actually was a terrible place for a colony.

At first, the climate was great and the Native Americans were friendly. Then, summer came. Blistering heat, swarms of insects, unhealthy water, starvation, and Native American attacks caused the colonists of the Virginia Company to begin to fail.

Most of the colonists were "gentlemen". "Gentlemen" were men who did not work or labor in England. They were rich men who always had otheres do their work. These men were not used to having to work hard. They did not know how to farm or hunt.

John Smith, a leader of the colony of Jamestown, was injured in a gunpowder explosion in 1609. He was shipped back to England for medical attention. While he was gone, a cold winter hit. This winter was so bad that they called it the "Starving Time". The colonists of Jamestown had to eat whatever was available; mice, rats, cats, and dogs.

When John Smith returned on May 24, 1610, he came upon 60 colonists. The rest of the colonists had died during the winter. The "Starving Time" had killed nearly 90% of the colony.

The colonists decided that this was the end of Jamestwon. They packed what they could on the ships, and headed down the river. Jamestown was abandoned.

The ships had traveled 10 miles down the James River when they met a boat. This boat was filled with supplies for Jamestown. The colonists headed back to Jamestown.

The colony of Jamestown was not making any money. They had not found any gold to make money for the Virginia Company of London. The colonists needed to find something that would make them money.

In 1612, John Rolfe began growing tobacco. Two years later, tobacco from North America was introduced to the people of England. The first shipment of Virginia tobacco was sold in London during the year of 1612. Although King James I did not like tobacco, this product began to make the Virginia Company of London lots of money.

During this time, Pocahontas was captured and held captive by the colonists. Pocahontas was the daughter of Chief Powhatan. (Pocahontas' Native American name was Matoaka. Pocahontas is a nickname which means "Frisky," "Mischievous", or "Playful One".) While Pocahontas was kept by the colonists, she was taught their religion. Pocahontas changed her name to "Rebecca" in an attempt to become more like the white colonists. She married John Rolfe in April of 1614. This marriage brought peace between the colonists and the Native Americans.

By 1619, Jamestown had exported 750 tons of tobacco. Tobacco was the American colonies' chief export. Jamestown was becoming a wealthy town. During this time, Jamestown imported two different products that allowed them to continue to be successful. They brought women and slaves into their colonies. The women allowed the colonists to begin families in the new world. The slaves from Africa allowed the colony of Jamestown to produce more tobacco and make more money.

Tobacco was one of the main factors that allowed Jamestown to succeed and become the first permanent English colony in North America.

Feb 1624/5, the Muster (census) shows John Chandler as a servant to Thomas Willoughby: "Muster of the Inhabitants of Virginia" at Elizabeth Cittie. Ensigne Thomas Willoughby, his muster: Thomas Willoughby, aged 23, in the Prosperouse, 1610; Servants: John Chandler, aged 24, in the Hercules, 1609...."

Land transactions suggest that John Chandler's "now wife Elizabeth" of 1636 was the widow Elizabeth Lupo. This would account for his rise in fortune, and his acquisition of the Lupo land which was held by his son in 1683 and thereafter. It may be that "now wife Elizabeth" was John Chandler's second wife, a first wife having died between 1626-1636.

12 Feb 1657/8 County Court, Elizabeth City, presiding justices include John Chandler. This is the last surviving record of John Chandler. He may have left a will, now lost, as he was a man of influence and property.

From England to VA in 1609 (age 9) aboard the Hercules. Feb 1624/5, the Muster (census) shows John Chandler as a servant to Thomas Willoughby: "Muster of the Inhabitants of Virginia" at Elizabeth Cittie. Ensigne Thomas Willoughby, his muster: Thomas Willoughby, aged 23, in the Prosperouse, 1610; Servants: John Chandler, aged 24, in the Hercules, 1609...." It is possible that John Chandler came over with relatives who did not survive, or as an indentured servant, or as cabin boy. It is possible that his family had some connection with the Virginia Company of London.

Feb 1623/4, among those on "The List of the Living and the Dead in Virginia," the original in the Public Record Office, London, as published in Peter Coldham's "Complete Book of Immigrants, 1607-1660," p. 44. He was a single man living in Elizabeth City [originally the burrough of Kiccoughton - settled about 1610 by a group of people from Jamestown], VA. [Elizabeth City is today Hampton, VA.]

John Chandler was an "Ancient Planter," that is one who arrived in Virginia before 1616. A "Charter of Orders" of 1618/19 authorized land grants to those early settlers who had survived. "Cavaliers and Pioneers," Vol. I, by Nell Nugent, p xxviii. Land patent - 6 Jul 1636, to John Chandler, 1000 acres Elizabeth City County, VA, bounded on the west by Harris Creek, extending east toward Point Comfort Creek, etc. John Chandler claimed this acreage on the grounds that he had brought over 19 persons to the colony at his own expense and that his "now wife" [Elizabeth] had come over at her own (or her family's) expense and was therefore entitled to 50 acres of her own for her "personal adventure."

Before 1640 John Chandler bought another plantation, the name of which survives in VA today: "...216 acres in Elizabeth City County, commonly called 'Newports Newes'." Feb 1639/40 - "This bill bindeth John Chandler of Newports Newes, planter..."

17 Feb 1639/40 - Samuel Chandler signed an agreement with John Chandler. Samuel Chandler was a London merchant engaged in the VA trade who came to Virginia twice in the 1630s and 1640s. Richard Chandler of London was witness to some of Samuel Chandler's documents. There is no evidence that Richard ever came to VA, but he was still active in the colonial trade in the 1650s and 1660s. It is not known whether Samuel and Richard Chandler of London were relatives of John Chandler of Virginia, but the association is suggestive. John Chandler was a member of the House of Burgesses from Elizabeth City County in 1645-46 and 1647-48. He was also a Justice of the County Court.

John married Elizabeth LUPO ? before 1636. Elizabeth was born about 1598.

Albiano Lupo was born in 1579 in London, of an Italian family living in England. He was a member of the Virginia Company and came to VA in 1610, settling in Elizabeth City. He died 1626, leaving a young widow, Elizabeth, aged 28. The land of Albiano and Elizabeth Lupo can be traced through the Chandler family for four generations, up to 1749. Land patent of 5 Jun 1645 to Wm Cock, land in Elizabeth City...adjoining land "late in the possession of Lt. Albiano Lupo, and now in the possession of John Chandler."

Eizabeth Lupo patented 50 acres of land in her own name on 20 Sep 1624.

M i Robert CHANDLER Sr. was born about 1626 and died before 12 Apr 1669.
3 M ii John CHANDLER was born about 1635. He died 1692.

In Reply to: Re: JOHN CHANDLER, 1609/1610 VA IMMIGRANT by Carey Seagraves of 4745


Aside from my own line - the connection of which to the family of 1610 immigrant John of Virginia I had just discovered when I posted the 1998 message to which you are responding - I have concentrated on thr first three generations and trying to pin down immigrant John's English home and family.

Beginning in the August/September 2000 issue of "Tidewater Virginia Families," a quarterly periodical of Virginia history and genealogy, I have written several articles expanding and adding to the account of immigrant John and some of his descendants first published by the Chandler Family Association. Subscriptions or individual issues as long as they last may be purchased from the publisher,, Virginia L. H. Davis. For details, contact her at <tvf@erols.com>. TVF is a highly professional publication with strict adherence to generally accepted principles of academic research and writing. It is available in most libraries carrying Virginia genealogical periodicals.

The CFA "Newsletter," published three times annually, has done some work on your line. To secure copies of back issues that relate to your family you may contact President Elizabeth Steelman at <beth@texramp.net>. Jim Reeves maintains a lineage data base (no sources or details and CFA does NOT warrant accuracy) that he updates every September and makes available for (currently) the nominal price of $14. The 2002 edition contains more than 80,000 names. Joseph Chandler Burton, Jr. had done a lot of research on the Elizabeth Palmer issue prior to his death in late 2000, but I don't recall if he lived to publish his analysis. You may wish to ask Ms. Steelman and/or Mr. Reeves about this issue. It may at least save you some time doing further research.

My August/September 2000 article deals with 1610 immigrant John, my May/June 2001 article presents all the proofs available (circumstantial) about his son Robert, and my article of May/June 2002 deals with Robert's descendants through his son Robert (II), who is your ancestor. It names the children heretofore identified by CFA researchers down to and including the 5th generation. I will NOT be doing any more work on this line; there are plenty of folks working this line, including you.

The male line that died out completely is not of concern to you or me - it was the male line of immigrant John's other son, John II that ended with the death of John IV in 1728.

I do notice a couple of off- repeated errors in your list. One is that Elizabeth was the "WIDOW LUPO," not a Lupo from birth. Another is that there is NO PROOF that Robert's wife's surname was DAVIS; that an error made by someone who either did not know the difference between a "godfather" and a "grandfather" or was just so eager to claim he/she had found something others had not found that he/she made the claim that William Davis was the geandfather of Robert's son William. The original plainly says "godfather" - TWICE to William Chandler and a child of another neighbor of William Davis.

11 John Chandler (1600-London, England) Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters--John Chandler is believed to have been born about September 7, 1600. The Chandler Family Association publications say that John Chandler arrived on 6, June in 1610 at Jamestown, Virginia on the Hercules of Rye at the age of nine. The expedition of three ships led by Sir Thomas West, Lord Del Aware landed on Sunday morning June 10, 1610. We do not know of the circumstances of his family, if he was alone or with a mentor. The ships list of passengers lists him as a "single gentleman"

John lived adjacent to Albanio Lupo in Elizabeth City County, Virginia.

John survived the epidemics and Indian raids. He was single in 1623 when the list of the living was taken after the Indian massacre. In 1620, 1200 had been counted, but only 60 remained alive after the Indian attacks.

John was still single in 1624 he was living in Kiccoughtan, later Elizabeth City County, when he listed in a military unit run by Thomas Willoughby to whom he was indentured. He must have married not long after, for his son Robert was born about 1625-1630.

He married the widow of Albiano Lupo (who died in 1626) Elizabeth -?- Lupo, prior to 1636. This marriage brought ownership of 400 Acres of harbor front land into John's ownership where that land remained intact until the 5th generation when Hannah (Chandler) began selling off parcels in 1718.

In 1632 He was farming land that he owned or leased, and in 1636 he patented 1000 acres for himself and his "now wife Elizabeth," on Harris Creek in Elizabeth City, today within the city limits of Hampton, VA. He lived to be a prosperous planter, representing Elizabeth City in the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1645-1648. He was Justice of the county Court in 1646-1658, and may have died soon there after.

John Chandler's reference to his "now wife Elizabeth" would indicate a first wife who had died before 1636, and who was the mother of Robert Chandler of York County.

From the Chandler Family Associations Newsletter Volume III, Number III, P.O. Box 8132, Lakeland, FL 33802-8132. February 1994.

It should be noted that there were other Chandlers who were immigrants to America at later dates. They are not related in this country to the 1610 John Chandler of Jamestown, although it is possible that there may have been a connection before coming to this country.

John Chandler b. ca. 1600, d. ca.1660, arrived in Jamestown Virginia in 1610. John Chandler was the first of the Chandlers to come to America as a permanent resident..

Chandler

The Coat of Arms


The Coat of Arms of this Chandler Family was prepared by Miss Fanny Chandler,
from original obtained from the Herald's College, London, by the Rev. Thomas
Bradbury Chandler, D.D., Of Elizabeth Town, N.J., when he was there in 1775.

The crest borne on the closed helmet above the Coat of Arms, is that of the
Pelican in her nest wounding her breast to feed her young with her own blood
--an emblem of parental affection expressive of the family motto,

"Ad mortem fidelis"

The mantle--cut and jagged--handing from the Helmet, indicates the faithful
service of the wearer; the Gauntlet, his prowess.

Heraldic colors on the shield are designated by the direction of the lines.

THREE LYONS PASSANT, GULES.
BY THE NAME OF CHANDLER."
