Origins Available: English, Italian


The ancestors of the name Candelor are thought to be from the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The surname Candelor is derived from the Middle English words "chaundeler" and "chandeler," which in turn come from the Old French word "chandelier." This is derived from the late Latin word "candelarius," which comes from the word candela, which means candle. As a surname, Candelor was likely originally occupational, for a person who makes and sells candles. Less common derivations suggest that Candelor may have been for someone who had the responsibility of lighting candles in a large house, or someone who owed rent in the form of wax or candles.

Candelor Early Origins



The surname Candelor was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Candelor, or a variant listed above: Robt Candler, who arrived in Virginia in 1664;Frances Candler, who arrived in Barbados in 1671; John Candler, who settled in Virginia in 1703; Anne Candler, who came to Virginia in 1733.
