Mr. Bahson, in his History of Gloucester, says the failing
health of Rev. John White, of the first church, made it neces-
sary in 1750 to provide him help in the work of the ministry.
The committee, after four candidates had declined through dis-
agreements between the parish and church, finally waited upon
Mr. Samuel Chandler, at York, Me., and invited him to preach
a few Sabbaths. He arrived in town on Saturday, Feb. 23,
1751, and preached the next day. His forenoon sermon was
from Isaiah iv. 1. Mr. Chandler received an invitation to
settle, though some made objection, and spoke to him in a dis-
couraging manner, but finally, on the .30th September, a com-
mittee of the church waited upon him to propose certain ques-
tions, to which satisfactory answers were given; and the 13th
of Nov. following was fixed upon for installation. The second,
third, and fourth churches in Gloucester, and the second in
Rowley [Rev. James Chandler's], and second in Andover, were
invited to assist by delegates in the services on that occasion.



FIFTH AND SIXTH GENERATIONS. 199

The sermon was preached by the Rev. Samuel Phillips, of
Andover (the pastor under whose ministry Mr. Chandler was
brought up), from Luke xiv. 21. The colleague himself said
of the ^festivities qd that oeeasion, that " Deaeon William Par-
sous Euteiiaiued the Council at his own charge ; Mr. William
Stevens the Schollars and Gentlemen at his own charge ; and
Mr. John Stevens entertained the Council in the morninV with
Plumb Cake." A few little volumes of a journal kept by Mr
Chandler have been preserved, from which the account <nven of
the entertainment at his installation is extracted.

Rev. Mr. Samuel Chandler owned and occupied, at the time of
his death, the gambrel-roofed house still standing on 'the south
side ot Middle Street, between Short and Centre Streets, in
Gloucester.

In 1755, Mr. Chandler, with the unanimous consent of the
church, went as chaplain in Col. Plaisted's regiment in the ex-
pedition against Crown Point. He was engaged in the services
from Sept. 8 to Dec. 28. The next spring Col. Plaisted came
to Gloucester on purpose to procure his services for the campaign
ot that year : but the parish would not consent to his <>oino-
Mr. Chandler passed through all the anxieties of the troubled
period which led to the Revolution, but he did not live to hear
ot the first bloodshed in the war which followed. His ministry
and hfe were drawing to a close in the fall of 1774. His health
failed, and the parish made an appropriation to provide him as-
sistance in his duties— such as occasional supplies of his pulpit.

The declining days of Mr. Chandler were rendered painful
and wearisome by long sickness and suffering; but no bodily
infirmity or distress could move him to sorrow or repine, while
his soul was tilled with the deepest anxiety and alarm on ac-
count ot a danger of fearful magnitude that threatened the
eternal welfare of his beloved flock. A new teacher had come
to his people, and with plausible arguments and captivating
eloquence, was "wresting and torturing the Word of God"
and in opposition to the venerable authoritv of ancient interpre-
tation and universal belief, was proclaiming the final salvation
ot all the human race as a doctrine of the Holy Scriptures The
sick pastor could not send forth from his pulpit a voice of warn-
ing against the dangerous heresy ; but called to his brethren in
the ministry, among whom was Dr. Stillman, of Boston, to come
and sound the alarm ; and then, as a last effort of his concern
tor the people ot his charge, sent to his people to be read, a few
weeks before his death, a short address, in which he admonished
them, as one drawing near to the eternal world, to take heed lest
they should be led away with error, and to beware of the false
prophet who, if it were possible, would deceive the very elect.
Alt. Chandler died on the lGth of March, 1775, aged 62 years.



200 THE CHANDLER FAMILY.

We have a brief sketch of his character from a young brother
in the ministry, Rev. Obadiah Parsons, of the third church, who
had from childhood attended upon his religious instructions :

k * He was a gentleman of a clear apprehension, solid judg-
ment, firm, and of a thoughtful, inquisitive temper of mind.
These sanctified and improved, fitted him for the high and hon-
orable office he sustained, and which he discharged with fidelity.
As a preacher he delivered the truth as it is in Jesus ; showing
in his doctrines uneorruptness, gravity and sound speech, that,
could not be condemned; exhibiting a bright example of the
same in the course and tenor of his life. He was blessed with
a great degree of wisdom and prudence, the happy effect of
which hath been evident in a variety of instances. The welfare
of his people and the church of God lay near his heart. He
was a warm friend to his country. In every relation lie main-
tained the character of a sincere disciple of his Lord and Master
the Lord Jesus Christ. Many and various were his trials
through, life, under which his patience was conspicuous. Under
the hand of God in the consumption which closed the scene of
his life , ho discovered great submission and resignation to His
Holy will, who was his staff through the valley of the shadow
of death, and now is (as I trust) his portion forever."

Tradition confirms all that is here said of Mr. Chandler. His
domestic life was one of singular infelicity ; and the reports
concerning it, not yet passed into oblivion, render it probable
that all the gentleness, patience and resignation that marked his
character were schooled to a severe exercise in his conjugal and
parental relations. His wife, to whom he was married in 1738,
was Anna Pecker, of Haverhill, who had either a disordered
intellect or a perverse heart. She annoyed and troubled her
husband in unusual ways ; and, in the judgment of charity, it
may be allowed that reason, rather than conscience, was defi-
cient. Mr. Chandler had a son John, who was a sea-faring
man, and is said to have caused his father much anxiety and
trouble ; but of his history and end no particulars are pre-
served. He also had a daughter Anna, whose conduct was a
source of less happiness than sorrow ; but her frailties were
buried with her in an early grave. She died Pel). ID, 1765* of
consiunption, aged 22. Another daughter, Sarah, married
William Haynes in 1769. He was a sojourner in town then ;
but it is not supposed that he remained there many months.
He was a sea-captain, and was never heard from after he sailed
on his last voyage. Mrs. Haynes died in Providence, R. I.,
while on a visit, Feb. 2<S, 1813, aged 66.

Mrs. Chandler, after her husband's death, opened a small shop
in the house where she had long resided, in Middle Street, and
after keeping it a short time, moved out of town. The three



FIFTH AND SIXTH GENERATIONS. 201

children mentioned above came to Gloucester with their father.
He had a son Samuel born here. June 20, 1753, who graduated
lit Harvard College in 1775, and then went one voyage or more
privateering from Newburyport ; after which he taught a
mathematical school in that town till within a tew weeks of his
death, which occurred in May, 1787. His wife, whom he
married in Newburyport, survived him and married for her
second husband John Mycall. She also outlived him, and died
at an advanced age.

lower than the hills that surround it). That part of Westmore-
land from which the Lowthers came is called Bottom of West-
moreland, it has been written Louther, Loder, Loader, Loud-
er, Lowthrey.

He was a shoemaker ; recorded in the ''larger Westminster

bury home, the second wife was kind to her, took her in. and
cared for her while she chose to stay. Her father tried to make
