An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancestors of the name Candler are thought to be from the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The surname Candler 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, Candler was likely originally occupational, for a person who makes and sells candles. Less common derivations suggest that Candler 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.

Candler Early Origins



The surname Candler 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Candler family emigrate to North America:
