Chandler genealogy comes from England in the early medieval period. It is an occupational surname referring to someone who made and sold candles, someone who worked with wax (which could include soapmaking), more rarely someone who was responsible for the lighting arrangements in a large house, or even someone who owed rent in the form of candles. The name comes from the Old French chandelier, and originally from the Latin candela, meaning a candle.
