ASSOCIATIONS: Probably related to ROGER CHANDLER, as both were sayworkers in Leiden, both came to Plymouth about the same time, and both removed to Duxbury.
COMMENTS Although we cannot place Edmund Chandler in Plymouth prior to 1632 based on New England records, he was probably one of the last group of Leiden church members who came to Plymouth in 1629 and 1630.
Edmund Chandler does not appear in the 25 March 1633 and 27 March 1634 Plymouth tax lists, even though his age, wealth and social status would lead one to expect that he should.
Records for a Samuel Chandler of Plymouth and then of Duxbury begin with appearances on the 25 March 1633 and 27 March 1634 Plymouth tax lists [PCR 1:11, 28], and continue through the 1683 estate records in Duxbury. Attempts have been made to distribute these records between two Samuel Chandlers, the elder being possibly the son of Roger Chandler seen in Leiden records, who did not survive his father, and the younger being the Samuel Chandler named in the will of Edmund Chandler. We will argue here that these records, spread over sixty years, pertain to only one Samuel Chandler, who was son of Edmund.
First, the Samuel Chandler taxed in 1633 must have been at least 21, and therefore born no later than 1612. Edmund Chandler was made a citizen of Leiden in 1613, and was therefore born no later than 1592, and perhaps earlier; he could easily have been father of a Samuel born in 1612.
Second, the records for Samuel Chandler from 1633 to 1683 do not at any point imply two persons of that name at Duxbury during these years. The designations ""Sr."" and ""Jr."" are never employed in the records.
Third, when Samuel Chandler was charged with slander against the Plymouth government in 1639, one of his bondsmen was Richard Higgins, who had married in 1634 at Plymouth Lydia Chandler. If she married at the normal age, Lydia would have been born about 1614, and so could well have been a sister of Samuel.
Fourth, on 20 May 1637 John Jenney sued Samuel Chandler for a debt of £20. ""Edmond Chaundler became bail to the action, and to satisfy the debt,"" and on 2 October 1637 ""Edmond Chaundler undertook to pay the plaintiff' the amount remaining due [PCR 7:6].
All of these arguments are consistent with the hypothesis that Edmund Chandler had three children by a first wife: Samuel, Lydia, and the child buried at Leiden in 1619.
The will of Edmund Chandler names six other children, but we have little to help us in dating them. Two of these six were sons, Benjamin and Joseph, with Benjamin always named first in the will. Three of the daughters (Sarah, Anna and Mary) are grouped together, after which the other three children were grouped together (Benjamin, Joseph and Ruth). Our arrangement of the children above assumes that these six were named in birth order, and were all by a second (or later) wife.
The argument has been made that Joseph must have been born by 1641, since he was named executor by his father in 1662; but since a testator might not be planning to die immediately, this is not necessarily true. BenJamin married by about 1671, andJoseph probably sometime in the mid-1670s, and rough estimates of birthdates for these six children are assigned on this basis.
Nothing is known of the fate of the four daughters of Edmund Chandler. The grouping together of Sarah, Anna and Mary may possibly indicate that they were married by 3 May 1662, the date of their father's will.
The son John, who died testate at Barbados, would be older by some years than all of these children by the second wife, if we assume that he was twenty-one when he made his will.
On 23 January 1638/9 ""Edmond Chandler, of Duxborrow, ycom[an],"" took John Edwards as an apprentice for five years [PCR 1:110].

John Haliburton or Halliburton or Hallyburton 1739 Scotland Susanna Brenton "Jan 4, 1767" "Newport, Rhode Island" "July 11, 1808" "Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada" "Naval Surgeon, Surgeon at Newport Rhode Island, then at Halifax, Nova Scotia. His wife, Susanna, was the daughter of Jahleel Brenton and his second wife, Mary Neargrass. (Jahleel had 22 children. Many of this family left Rhode Island after the Revolution, going either to Nova Scotia or England.)
“In the year 1750 the town (Newport, Rhode Island) was visited by a frigate commanded by Lord Colville. On board, acting as surgeon of the ship, was Dr. John Halliburton; he was the son of a Prebyterian clergyman, who was in charge of the church at Haddington, Scotland. Whilst the ship rode at anchor in the harbour of Newport, this gentleman became acquainted with the family of the Hon. Jahleel brenton, whose son was so well known in the British Navy as Admiral Sir J. Bretnon. Doctor Halliburton became attached to one of Mr. Brenton’s daughters, and after completing his stipulated term of service as naval surgeon, returned to Rhode Island, and was married to Susannah Brenton, on the 4th of January, in the year 1767. This alliance caused him to adopt the colony of Rhode Island as his home, and follow his profession among his newly-found friends and acquaintances. As a physician he was skillful and attentive, and these qualifications soon produced their most favourable results; his practive was extensive, and he acquired property. Circumstances, however, made his residence in the Island of short duration. Whatever may have been his visions of a permanent abode, and the founding of a comfortable homestead for future generations, they were rudely dispelled by the difficulties which arose, between the Parent Kingdom and (Page 4) the Colonies. From all his earliest associations, the nature of his education, the society with which he had most mingled, the position which he had occupied as the servant of the Government, in one of his Majesty’s ships of war – his feelings of loyalty were deeply rooted.
When those unhappy disputes arose, which eventually resulted in sundering from its centre so large a portion of the British empire, as now constitutes the American Republic, Dr. Halliburton, as was most natural, espoused and warmly supported the Royalist party. The consequence of his openly expressed opinions, and unconcealed acts, was soon felt. In the month of July, 1776, he was banished, together with several other loyalists, for refusing to subscribe the test ordered by an act of the Revolutionary Assembly. The place of his banishment was Hopkinton, and there he remained until September of that year, when it was voted that he and Dr. William Hunter, ‘have leave to return to Newport, until the October session of the Assembly.’ This privilege was granted, however, not out of consideration to themselves, but because their services as physicians were much needed by the inhabitants. The forbearance thus shown lasted but a short time, and he was finally compelled to sacrifice all the property which ability and application had enabled him to accumulate, and escape from the town. Nor was it, by any means, a trifling surrender which he was compelled to make. The loss incurred by firm adhesion to his political principles was very great. The abandonment of property, the resignation of a lucrative practice, the dismember- (Page 5) ment of social ties and domestic arrangements, formed, in their
combination, a very serious sacrifice.
His residence was one of the most valuable in the town of Newport, and furnished with the appliances of comfort and convenience then at command. For this reason, doubtless, it was selected as a suitable abode for the Duc de Lauzun, who accompainied the French army sent to assist the revolting colonists. Whilst this nobleman was billeted upon Dr. Halliburton, he manifested great anxiety to relieve his host of all unnecessary trouble and inconvenience. The military necessity was counterbalanced by sincerity of maaner and kindliness of feeling. When, in deference to his rank, and considerable thoughtfulness of his accustomed comforts and habits at home, the best rooms in the house were offered to the Duc, for his use, he declined accepting them, lest he should needlessly disturb the existing arrangements of the family. This freedom from selfishness, and manifestation of respect, continued to the very close of his compulsory visit; and when the friendly, though uninvited, guest parted with his hospitable entertainer, he addressed him in these words: ‘I respect you, sir, for your fidelity to your Sovereign, under the most adverse circumstances.’....
The time when it became necessary for Dr. Halliburton to leave Newport, arrived, and though that crisis was reached by an interesting circumstance, it need not be related here, as it refers more to the father than the son. It became unsafe for the loyalist to remain any longer, and he, therefore, resolved to leave the township as soon as possible. Upon his return from Hopkinton he had been in the habit of following his profession, as usual, and making visits to his patients at some distance from his home; and, one night determined to take advantage of this self-allowed liberty.
In his latter days Sir Brenton could recall how his father had in the evening put on his hat and coat, to see, as he supposed, some sick patient on the main land; and yet, how strange and unaccountable to him, was the display of feeling manifested by his mother and older members of the family upon bidding him ‘good night!’ He had been accustomed to the Doctor’s leaving the house, and he saw no reason for more than (Page 8) ordinary regret. The morning, however, to some extent, revealed the myster; his father had not returned.
That night Dr. Halliburton left the town in a barge from Castle Hill, “the estate of the Hon. J. Brenton,” and landed safely at Long Island, where the British army was stationed. On his arrival at Head Quarters he presented himself to Sir Henry Clinton, who) as some small recognition of his services) offered him the headship of the Naval Medical Department in that ciry, or in Halifax, the capital of Nova scotia. After due deliberation he wisely chose the latter, no doubt deeming it likely to be a more permanent office than the other. He sailed in a British ship of war from New York soon after, and arrived at his detination in 1782; his wife and family followed him in the succeeding spring. A brother of Mrs. Halliburton’s (possibly James) undertook the conducting of them to their new home. Having obtained a white flag, he embarked with his sister and all her children, consisting of Joh, who died in youth – Mary, who married Captain Beckwith, -Elizabeth, who married Judge Stewart, - the youngest daughter, Rebecca, who married Captain Murray, - and Brenton, who was the youngest of the family, - and their aunt, Mehitabel Brenton.....
Benjamin Waterhouse, Harvard’s first professor of medicine and the physician who introduced true smallpox vaccination to the Western Hemisphere, was born in Newport, Rhode Island, on March 4, 1754. He lived a long and productive but contentious life, dying in Cambridge during his ninety-second year.
Waterhouse grew up in Newport, a thriving mercantile port, the sometime capitol of the colony and the intellectual center of southern New England. He was a schoolmate of Gilbert Stuart, who was to achieve fame as a portrait artist. Waterhouse’s father was a moderately prosperous cabinetmaker and a Quaker. His mother was cousin to Dr. John Fothergill, London’s most eminent physician.
At the age of sixteen, Waterhouse was apprenticed to a former maritime surgeon and Newport’s leading physician, John Halliburton. Five years later Waterhouse sailed for London to further his medical studies under Fothergill; still later he traveled to the universities in Edinburgh and Leyden to complete formal studies, leading to his completion of a medical degree in 1780.
Following the customary postgraduate year of travel in mainland Europe, Waterhouse returned to Newport and established a medical practice assembled from the remnants of Halliburton’s patient roster after Halliburton, a Tory loyalist, had abandoned his practice in 1775 and fled to Nova Scotia.

April 25, 1763 his mother was appointed his guardian after his fathers death. On January 18, 1768, having arrived at a suitable age, he chose Ebenezer Hutchinson for his guardian. In his brother John IV diary, is found the meager statment that he died at Sharon. Sedgwick's History of Sharon, gives an account of some of his Revolutinary War record. He took part in the Battle of Lexington and received honorable mention for his conduct. He was with the troops of Ethan Allen, and was captured with the group of menn who where sent to England to be punished as traitors. Threat of retaliation keep them from being punished and the men returned in the spring of 1776 and where confined in a old church. The Sharon men planned to escape. There was a high fence around the church and William Gray managed to loosen one of the long boards. Throug the opening he and his companions made their excape as soon as it was dark enouph to hide there movements. The soon found a way to land on Long Island and thence to the main land over the Sound and returned to their homes in Sharon.

Amos Phillips "October 27, 1719" "Groton, Middlesex, England" Abigail Dodge "February 8, 1744/45" "Lunenburg, Worcester, MA" "Dunstable Twp., Hilsboro, New Hampshire" "Amos Phillips was involved in a controversy about the construction of a bridge. The bridge debate spanned the years from 1746 to 1773. The story of this controversy may be best told by extracts from the original documents relating to it still to be found in the office of the Secretary of State at Concord, Massachusetts. It is known as 'THE ONE PINE HILL CONTROVERSY.--ANNEXATION OF ONE PINE HILL TO HOLLIS.--SECOND BORDER CONTROVERSY.--DISPUTE ABOUT BUILDING THE NASHUA RIVER BRIDGE""
The first reference we find in this matter in the Hollis records is in the proceedings of a town meeting, Oct. 26, 1747, at which the town ""Voted to request of Dunstable the People of One Pine Hill with their Lands to be set off to Hollis, and chose Capt. Peter Powers, Thomas Dinsmore and Samuel Cumings to assist in that affair, and Rais Bounds between the Towns.""
It can be seen from these papers that the people of One Pine Hill, aided more or less by their helpful allies in Hollis, were in almost constant rebellion against the ecclesiastical and civil authorities of their own town, for the seventeen years from 1746 to 1763.
Petition signed by Amos Phillips in the Spring of 1756...
""That your Petitioners live in the west side of Dunstable and so far from the Meeting-House, that it is almost empossable for us to attend the Publick Worship of God there, for some of us live 7 1-2 miles and the nearest 5 1-2 miles from the Meeting-House so that we Can't and Don't go to Meeting there * * * * for they have set their Meeting-House to accommodate them Selves, and seem not in the least to Regard us only to get our Money. Our Difficulties are so exceeding great that make us Dispair of having any comfortable reviving Gospel Priviledges unless we can obtain the aid of your Excellency and Honnors.""
""Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Excellency and Honnors would so far Compassionate our Circumstances as to Relieve us by setting us with our Land to Holles to which we once belonged and helped settel our Minister and now go to attend the Publick Worship of God. * * The furthest of us from Holles is not more than 3 1-2 or 4 miles, and the bigest part about 2 1-2 or 3 miles to which we can go with some degree of comfort. We therefore pray * * that you would be pleased to annex us to Holles with about 2500 acres of Land which wee have described in a Plan, which will greatly relieve us, * * and help us to a Comfortable Injoyment of Gospel Priviledges. * * And as in Duty Bound, &c.

SAMUEL GOODHUE, ENOCH NOYES
The residents of Dunstable opposed this petition, and it was denied. Later, the location of a bridge to join the communities became a rancourous issue.
The 'Pine Hill' referred to a towering single pine tree at the site, which had been removed by 1773.

He had a brother, Charles, who was two years his junior and who died in 1813 in Union Co. South Carolina. George Linam receiveda land wrrant for his military service during the Revolution. The warrant was for 747 and one-half acres. This curious amount of land prmted me to do further resarch and I discovered that this amount of land was awarded by SOuth Carolina to its citizens who were ""refugeed"" in another state. This means that Georgia was probably a resident of North Georgia and was forced to leave or flee the state and setled in South Carolina, where he enlisted in the Militia.
