Poet Robert Frost is a descendant
He was successful and properous, his wife survied him.
From "Ancestry of William Chandler of Roxbury, Mass" (NEHGR Vol.85(1931)):
Since he is the only person of this family name in his generation who appears in Bishops-Stortford, it may be assumed that he was the only surviving son of his father. He seems to have been successful and prosperous, as there is evidence that he acquired considerable property and left a good estate. The earliest mention of him is in 1532 in one of four land transactions by fine in which he participated. in three as a purchaser and in one as a vendor, which may be summarized as follows:
1532. Richard Glascok, Thomas Chaundeler, John Jacobbe, Thomas Smyth, and William Sybthorpe, querents v George Thomasson and his wife Margaret, deforciants, for two messuages and lands in Stortford. (Feet of Fines,Herts., Easter Term, 24 Henry VIII)
1532. Richard Glascok and Thomas Chaundeler, querents, v John Nobill and his wife, Joane and Thomas Clyfton and his wife Joan, for a messuage and lands in Stortford. (Ib., Michaelmas Term, 24 Henry VIII)
1541/2. Thomas Chaundeler, querents, v George Tomson, gentleman and his wife Margaret, deforciants for a barn and land in Stortford. (Ib., Hilary Term, 33 Henry VIII).
1550/1. Nicholas Marden, querent v. Thomas Chaundeler, Sr., and his wife Agnes, deforciants, for a messuage in Stortford. (Ib., Hilary Term, 4Edward VI).
Some of the properties held by Thomas Chandler are shown in a rental roll of the Bishop of London, for his manor of Bishops-Stortford in 37 HenryVIII (1545/6) as follows:
Thomas Chanler for a tenement that he dwelth in on the sowth syed of the heygh, by yere ij s vj d. The same Thomas for certene lands late parcell of Hawers, ij s iiij d. Itm, the same Thomas for a tenement in Sowthstret on the West syed called Sampson, by yere xix d. Itm, the sameThomas for a tenement in the wyder end of sowth strete on the est syed,by yere xxiij d. Itm, the same Thomas for a garden in basburne lane, byyere vj d. Itm, the same Thomas for the dovehouse and garden at Hacryelbryge, by yere ij d. (Court Roll 299 in the PRO, London).
As Thomas Chandler, jr., he was assessed at Stortford 10d on lands in the subsidy of 33 Henry VIII (1541/2), 10s in 34 Henry VIII (1542/3), 2d on goods valued at 40s in 35 & 36 Henry VIII (1543-5), and 3s 4d on lands valued at 40s in 37 Henry VIII (1545/6); and as Thomas Chaundeler, Sr. he was assessed at Stortford 18s on goods in the subsidy of 4 Edward VI(1549/50-1550/1). (Lay Subsidies, Herts., 121/151, 121/160, 121/157,121/177, 121/185, in the PRO, London)

p. 160 "Nicholas Snow...is probably identical with Nicholas,son ofNicholas Snow of Hoxton, Middlesex, baptized 25 January1599...where
Stephen Hopkins (whose daughter Constance became his wife) was married in1618. It may be inferred that the emigration of the Hopkins family wasthe occasion of Nicholas Snow's following them to Plymouth.

The Snow Genealogy By Mrs. M. L. T. Alden, of Troy, N.Y.
1. Nicholas Snow came in the Ann in 1623, and had share in the divisionof land in Plymouth, 1624; settled in Eastham in 1645; a man of muchnote. We find where he lived, and his neighbors from Plymouth ColonyRecords, vol. 1, page 59, "a heigh waye" from Plymouth to the EeleRiver...the upper way to Thomas Clarkes still; the lower way from RalphWallens right out to Holmans Rock; allowed fourty foote on thewest side,and so straight to Mannesses Kempton's ground, whose fence is to beremoved twenty foote inward, and so passing betweene two rock sat thebrooke, straight to Edward Banges, leaveing his house west, and so along,leaveing Nicholas Snowes house east and so to Mr. Hopkin'shouse, leaveingit east, and so up the valley to Thomas Clarkes uperstile, the foote wayto be continued from Mr. Hopkins's, in the old path, belowe ThomasClarkes to the heigh way," etc.
He was freeman 1633. He with six other--Mr. Thomas Prence, John Doane,Nicholas Snow, Josias Cook, Richard Higgins, John Smally, and EdwardBangs--seven families, in all forty nine souls, began a the settlement ofEastham--first called Nuset, early in 1645. It "is granted tobe atownship, and to have all the privileges of a township as other townswithin the government have" in 1646. "Thus recognized a meeting of theinhabitants, duly convened, elected Nicholas Snow Town clerk,Edward Bankstown treasurer, and Josias Cooke town constable."Nicholas Snow was townclerk from 1646, 16 years; was deputy from 1648, three years; wasselectman from 1663, seven years. He and his son Mark signed the call toRev. John Mayo to settle as their minister in 1655. He was one of Gov.Thomas Prence's associates. We think he was born in England.
Henry F. Waters, in his Genealogical Gleanings in England(Register, vol.39, page 166) states that Joseph Walker of St. Margaret's, city ofWestminster, gentleman, in his will dated 13 Feb. 1666 proved Feb. 17,1666, bequeaths "to my kinswoman Mary Snow, wife of Nicholas Snow,citizen and armourer of London, whome I nominate executrix."Also the willof George Upham Wiveliscombe, Somerset, dated 653,mentions
testator's brother-in-law Nicholas Snow. This Nicholas Snow and Mary hiswife may have been the parents of our Nicholas. He names his oldestdaughter Mary.
He died at Eastham, Nov. 15, 1676. He married in Plymouth, ConstanceHopkins, daughter of Mr. Stephen Hopkins, and a former wife.They came
in the Mayflower. Bradford, in his History of Plymouth Plantation(Collections of Massachusetts Historical Society, 4th Series,vol. 3,
page 448) gives in the list of the Mayflowerites:--"Mr. Steven Hopkins &Elizabeth his wife, & 2 children caled Giles & Constanta a doughter, botyby a former wife; and 2 more by this wife caled Damaris & Oceanus thelast was borne at sea, & 2 servants, called Edward Dotey, & EdwardLitster." In 1650 he writes, "Mr. Hopkins & his wife are now both dead,but they lived about 20 years in this place & had one sone & 4 daughtersborn here. Their son became a seaman & dyed at Barbadoes, one daughterdyed here, & two are married, one of them hath 2 children & one is yet tomarry. So their increase which still survive are 5, but his son Giles ismarried & has 4 children. His daughter Constanta is alsomarried & hath 12children, all of them living, & one married."
Goodwin in his Pilgrim Republic (page 185), says that the Martins,Molines and Hopkins joined the Pilgrims in England.
Constanct (Hopkins) Snow died Oct. 1677.
Nicholas does not mention his daughters in his will, and we suppose theyreceived their portions when they married. The ages of his children areonly guessed at, and the order in which they came, and I should be veryglad of corrections. Nicholas Snow and Constance (Hopkins) Snow hadchildren:
Mark, born at Plymouth, May 9, 1628
Mary " " about 1630
Sarah " " " 1632
Joseph " " " 1634
Stephen " " " 1636
John " " " 1638
Elizabeth " " 1640
Jabez " " " 1642
Ruth " " " 1644
Hannah, prob. born at Eastham 1646
Rebecca " " " 1648
I give Hannah and Rebecca on the authority of Davis's Landmarks ofPlymouth (page 245). Both married Richards.
The Snow Library of Orleans ,Cape Cod was named in honor of NicholasSnow:
Nickolas Snow is buried in Old Cove Cemetary, Orleans, Mass.
Nickolas Snow first left England on the ship "Paragon". They ran into asevere storm that seriously damaged the ship and the captain decided toreturn to England. It was repaired for one hundred pounds and they setsail once more for the New Plymouth.After sailing half the distance theyonce again ran into aheavy storm, suffering much damage and againreturned to England with the cargo and 109 people. Finally they (60)sailed in 1623 abord the ship "Ann".
The "Ann" was the fourth ship to bring settlers to NewEngland:"Mayflower" in 1620, "Fortune" in 1621, "Little James" in 1621and"Ann" on 30 July, 1623.
Abord ship Nickolas was among friends as his parents had moved shortlyafter his birth to St. Leonard's Parish where he was christened. Thisparish adjoins St. Mary's White Chaple where Stephen Hopkins married in1618. This Pilgrim neighborhood had as inhabitants Hopkins, Waarren andBarsett. Nicholas was active in the Separatist Movement. Carver andCushman, agents for the merchant adventurers who sponsored the PlymouthPlantation, only approved people who were in good health and had skillsthat would be useful as colonists in a wilderness situation. Nicholas wasa farmer.
The following is a partial list of his activities:
1623 in the casting of lots he was awarded one share. His landwas nearthe Eel River and buttedagainst Hobbs Hole. 22 May 1627 In the divisionof the cattle, he with his father-in-law, Stephen Hopkins,his wifeConstance, formed part of the 7th Company headed by Stephen Hopkins. Thiscompany obtained two she-goats and a black weaning calf, to which was tobe added that year's calf of the black cow which fellto John Shaw and hiscompany. 1633 He was a freeman and that year was taxed 18shilling,payable in corn at 6 shilling a bushel.

Winslow,if he would take him back, that he would serve him an addition year. Theagreement wasmade between Snow, Winslow and West and he returned toWinslow. 14 Mar. 1635/36 It was arranged that Nicholas Snow should mowatWellingsleyand have "One Small Jag of Hey" from themarsh assigned to JohnFaunce and Mr. Coomb.

Aug 1643 He was one of those of Plymouth, between 16 and 60 years of age,able to bear arms.
Tthe Pilgrams had become dissatisfied with the barrenness of the soil inthe Plymouth area and Nauset on Cape Cod seemed to be the logical choicefor them to move the entire church and government as they were familiarwith this area since a group of twenty of them had visited there from the15th to the 25th of November 1620 lead by Miles Standish when exploringthe Cape prior to settling at Plymouth. In 1622 and the following yearsthey had used this territory for means of additional sustenance.
A committee of seven who subsequently became the first settlers, withGov. William Bradford at their head, went to Nauset in 1643 to explorethis possibility and reported that Nauset was not asextensive as desiredand too remote from the center of thecolony to be a suitable location forthe seat of government.
In 1644 the Court at Plymouth ruled: The Court doth grant unto the Churchof New Plymouth or those that goe to dwell at Nauset(now Eastham) allthat tractt of land lying between sea and sea from the purchasers, boundsat Namseakett (now Orleans) to the same Hearing Brooke and all meadow onboth sides of the said brooke with the great basse pond these and allmeadows and is lands lying within the said tractt.
The following men and their families became the first settlers at Nauset:Edward Bangs, Josias Cooke, John Doane, RichardHiggins, Thomas Prence,John Smalley and Nicholas Snow. This constituted a colony of forty-ninepersons, settling in April 1644. In today's language the tract of landgrated them was about fifteen miles long, extenting from Pleasant Baynortherly to south bounds of Truro, bounded east by the ocean, west bythe bay and to the soth the area that presently comprises the towns ofHarwich and Brewster.
Six of the original settlers of Nauset erected their first dwellings inthe southern section of the present town of Eastham. Nicholas Snowlocated his family on Skaket, now in Orleans. The brook that ran throughhis land is know as Snow's Brook. Skaket, also known as Namskaket,Pochet, and all lands extending northward to the territory belonging tothe sachem George, the successor of Aspinet, was purchased fromMattaquason, sachem of Monomoyick. The original homes of these settlerswere unpretentious, being but one story high.

It was repaired for one-hundred pounds and they set sailagain for New Plymouth.After sailing half the distance they once againran into a heavy storm, suffered much damage and again had to return toEngland with cargo and 109 people. Finally they (60) sailed in 1623aboardthe ship "Ann". The passengers are listed above.
The "Ann" was the fourth ship to bring settlers to NewEngland,"Mayflower" in 1620, "Fortune" in 1621, "Little James" in 1621and"Ann" on 30 July 1623. Aboard ship Nicholas was among friends as hisparents had moved shortly after his birth to St. Leonard's Parish wherehe was christened.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE MAYFLOWER
The Mayflower was first recorded in 1609, at which time it was amerchantship traveling to Baltic ports. It was at theat timeowned by ChristopherNichols, Richard Child, thomas Short andChristopher Jones. The whip wasabout 180 tons, and rested inHarwich. In its early years it was employedin thetransportation of tar, lumber, fish and possibly did someGreenlandwhaling. Later in its life, it became employed inMediterranean wine andspice trading.
In 1620, Thomas Weston assisted by John Craver and RobertCushman hiredMayflower and the Speedwell to undertake thevoyage to plant a colony inNorthern Virginia. The Speedwell turned out to be a leaky ship, and sowas unable to make the famous voyage with the Mayflower.
Christopher Jones was the captain of the mayflower when it tookthePilgrims to new England in 1620. By the calender, theyanchored off thetip of Cape Cod on November 11, 1620. The Mayflower stayed in Americathat winter, and its crew suffered the effects of the first winter justas the Pilgrims did, with almost half dying. The mayflower set sail forhome on April 5, 1621, arriving back May6, 1621. The ship made a few moretrading runs, to Spain andthen to Ireland, and lastly to france. however,CaptainChristopher Jones died shortly thereafter, in march 1622. The shiplay dormant for about two years, at which time it was appraised forprobate, and ist value was determined to be lb128-08-04, an extremely lowvalue (had it been in sailing condition, lb.700 could be expected).
This inventory is the last record of the Mayflower. The ship wasnot invery good condition, being called "in ruins" in a 1624High Court ofAdmiralty record (HCA3/30, fo. 227). Ships in thatcondition were morevaluable as wood (which was in shortage inEngland at that time), so theMayflower was most likely broken apart and sold as scrap. There is noevidence that the Mayflower ended up as the Jordans barn, though it hasbecome a tourist trap anyway. Mayflower was a very common ship name, andin fact numerous other ships called the Mayflower made trips to NewEngland; but none was the same ship that brought the Pilgrims to America.
Came to America in 1623, served in the Colonial War.
