Harlos had his choice of guardians and chose Gardner Winslow who signed a one thousand dollars bond outlining his obligations to his ward and the court.

Birth*8 May 1699Jonathan Chandler was born on 8 May 1699 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
Court Action*1749Jonathan was the defendant in a court case filed by the plaintiff as "Martha Leonard, who was the wife of Joseph Leonard late of Bridgewater... Yeoman, Deceased" v. Jonathan Chandler (Bridgewater Yeoman) in 1749 "That instantly without delay he render to said Martha her reasonable Dower." Martha was represented by Daniel Johnson Esq. of Bridgewater. Plaintiff demanded a messuage and 7 acres in Bridgewater, of which her husband was seized "during the Coverture and whereof she hath nothing (as She Saith) and the said Martha Leonard Complains that the said Jonathan Chandler hath Deforced her thereof and then and there to Shew Cause why to the said Martha Leonard her reasonable Dower as aforesaid he doth not render etc." Defendant pleaded in abatement that (1) the writ identified Joseph Leonard as "Yeoman", when he never had "the Estate to make him so", that (2) the writ did not list plaintiff's "Addition... Neither of Town or County, which is absolutely Necessary and without which She cannot be rightly known", and that (3) the writ listed defendant Jonathan Chandler as a "Yeoman, which is Wrong, for he is a Bloomer." The defendant was overruled and then pleaded that he did set off her dower to her. The Jury verdict was for the plaintiff and included her dower, 10s in damages, and costs, taxed at £2.11s.5d. The defendant appealed, with Daniel Johnson Esq. of Bridgewater and James Hovey of Plymouth as sureties. No further record.3

Phebe Chandler1

Marriage-Possible*She may have married, as his first wife, Jacob Leonard, son of Solomon Leonard and Sarah Chandler, about the time he came of age and possibly in Weymouth as was "supposed" in the Leonard Memorial source. Whether or not Jacob really did marry before his marriage to Susanna King is not known and the question is answered as "unlikely" in the Chilton Mayflower source. The Mayflower source also discounted the birth of a son Joseph to the first marriage stating that Jacob's will did not mention a son Joseph even though the purported son was living and having physical problems. The source further noted it as "much more likely he is the known son" of Jacob's brother John Leonard.2,1,3

Marriage*21 July 1615He married Isabella Chilton, daughter of James Chilton and Susannah Furner, on 21 July 1615 in Leyden, South Holland Province, Holland.1
Death*between 1658 and 3 October 1665He died between 1658 and 3 October 1665, probably in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony.1

Relationship Note*Roger Chandler's grandson, John Leonard, married a Sarah who was identified incorrectly in the Leonard Memorial source as Roger's daughter. John's wife Sarah's maiden name has not been identified. John Leonard was the son of Sarah Chandler and Solomon Leonard, and a grandson of Roger Chandler, so it was John's mother, and not his wife, who was Roger's daughter.3,4

Sarah Chandler1

b. before 15 October 1622, d. before 27 October 1675
Father*Roger Chandler2 d. bt 1658 - 3 Oct 1665
Mother*Isabella Chilton2 b. 15 Jan 1586/87
Birth*before 15 October 1622Sarah Chandler was born before 15 October 1622 in Leyden, South Holland Province, Holland.3
Marriage*circa 1640She married Solomon Leonard circa 1640 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). The Bridgewater History source noted he left a widow "Mary" at his death in "1686". This statement is believed to be incorrect on both counts. Later research by the editors of "Mayflower Families Through Five Generations" has confirmed to our satisfaction that "Sarah Chandler" was Solomon Leonard's widow when he died before "1671". Additionally, we learn from the same source that Solomon's son, Solomon, was the Solomon who died in 1686 leaving a wife Mary.4,5,1
Residence*1643Sarah and Solomon Leonard were still living in Duxbury in 1643 when Solomon appeared on a list of men able to bear arms.3
Residence1658/59Sarah and Solomon Leonard were still living with their family in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, in 1658/59.3
(Daughter) Land Grant3 October 1665 On 3 October 1665, 150 acres of land in Plymouth Colony were granted to Sarah and her two sisters, the three daughters of Roger Chandler who, before his death, had been granted the original purchase rights. Then on 1 May 1671, Samuel Leonard of Bridgewater confirmed that his deceased father, Solomon Leonard, had given 50 acres to "my brother John Leonard", likely representing their mother Sarah's one third share of the 150 acres.3
(Wife) Deathbefore 1 May 1671Sarah became a widow when Solomon Leonard died before 1 May 1671.6,3
Death*before 27 October 1675She died before 27 October 1675 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).3
(Widow) Probate27 October 1675The administrator's bond on the estate of Sarah's husband Solomon Leonard, deceased, was not posted by their son Samuel Leonard until 27 October 1675. The probate records do not mention the widow of Solomon Leonard, which implies that Sarah had already died by that date.3

Pratt, Bridgewater, Massachusetts; originally printed in 1840 by Kidder and Wright, Boston, Massachusetts), Leonard, pages 244-248, noted he left a widow "Mary" at his death in "1686". This statement is believed to be incorrect on both counts. Later research by the editors of "Mayflower Families Through Five Generations" has confirmed to our satisfaction that "Sarah Chandler" was Solomon Leonard's widow when he died before "1671". Additionally, we learn from the same source that Solomon's son, Solomon, was the Solomon who died in 1686 leaving a wife Mary. Hereinafter cited as History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater.
