Lieut. ISAAC 4 CHANDLER (Joseph? Thomas? William 1 )
and Susanna Barnard, Concord, X. II.

Isaac Chandler of Salisbury, and Susanna Barnard of Ames-
bury, were married January 7, 1719—20. She lived with her
son Joseph, in Hopkinton, and died there. The births of their
five eldest children were recorded in Amesbury, and the birth
of Joseph, 2d, in Concord, N. II.

After the massacre, 11 Aug. 174(5, of the Bradleys and
others, about two miles west on the Hopkinton road, by the
Indians, " new arrangements were made concerning. the garri-
sons ; " and from "District of Rumford, March y* 21'\ 174(5-
~? '• Lt. Isaac Chandler and his Son Isaac are ordered to
remove and do their duty at the Garrison round the house of
til- aforesaid Kev. Timothy Walker."



88 THE CHANDLER FAMILY.

" Rumford Jan. 2' 1 1747-8, Isaac Chandler and others of
Ruinford, Obntooeook and Canterbury, petitioned his Excel-
leuev Benning Wcntworth, Es<j. Captain General and Governor
of his Majesty's Province of X. II.," and tk to grant unto Henry
Lovejoy ciueu a protection as may entourage him to reenter and
possess his — at present— abandoned garrison," to protect " his,
the only Grist Mill in all the three towns, that stands under the
command of the guns of the garrison.''

In a deposition given relative to the Bow controversy. 1757,
Isaac Chandler and Jacob Pillsburv, of Ruinford, state :

That there was no way for the people, in their power, to defend
themselves against their [Indian] Enemies, but by assembling
together, by common agreement, as many families as conveniently
could, and first Erecting a fort or garrison sufficient to contain them,
and then building within the same a house for each family, to screen
them from the inclemency of the weather. And all this they did at
their own expense. Moreover, by being obliged to keep Watch and
Ward, and to work together in huge companies for the greater safety
daring the Summer; and their being called from their business —
either by some assault oi Luv. discovery of the Indians — and other
avocations occasioned by the war. the deponents really believe that-
the said inhabitants lost nearly one half of their time during the most
busy and valuable part of the year; for all which they never, as the
deponents heard of, had any allowance or consideration.

And notwithstanding all these discouragements, they have stood
their ground against the Enemy; supported themselves with all the
necessaries of life; and also yearly spared considerable quantities of
provisions to the neighboring villages in the said province — which
must have suffered very much if they had not their assistance.

And they have always been ready, upon notice of distress or danger
among their neighbors, during the War, to go to their relief, many
times in considerable companies, to places at a distance, all at their
own expense ; besides the losses they have sustained, not only of
human lives, but also of their stocks of catth , many scores of which
were destroyed at other times.

Jacob Pillsburt.
[Rev. N. Bouton's Hist, of Concord. N. IE]

He gave his sons Isaac and Joseph Chandler large tracts of
land in Hopkinton, where the village now stands.
