Early Origins of the Chaundos family
The surname Chaundos was first found in Suffolk
where they claim descent from Hugh de Montfort held by Roger de Candos, a Norman noble, who was recorded in the Domesday Book
census of 1086. Robert de Chandos, of Candos in Eure in Normandy
, was companion in arms to William the Conqueror and was granted Caerleon in Wales
and lordships in Herefordshire
where he founded Goldcliff Priory. The parish of Mugginton, Derbyshire
played an important part of the family's heritage. "The manor, in Domesday Book
Mogintune, was anciently held under Earl Ferrers, and in the reign of Edward I
. was in moieties between the families of Chandos and Stafford." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Chaundos family to the New World and Oceana
at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Chaundoss to arrive on North American shores: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
