Mary Chaundler (Richard, Robert, Richard Chaundler, Elizabeth Robage, Anne Whitney, Robert, Robert [perhaps] Robert, Eustace, Robert, Robert, Robert, Eustace, Eustace, Robert, ...), daughter of Richard and Mary (Palmer) Chaundler, was born say 1675, and died 1711.

She married firstly, John Young, of Exton, later merchant of Idmiston, Wiltshire, born 1648, died 1692. He was the son of John Young and Honor Uvedale, daughter of Sir Richard Uvedale of Wickham, Hants.

She married secondly, 9 Feb 1697, Carew Raleigh, second but only surviving son of Sir Charles Raleigh (son of Gibert Raleigh and Elizabeth Goddard) and Frances Ernle, daughter of Robert Ernle, Servant to Queen Catherine of Braganza, of Whitehall, of Westminster etc. He was born after 1675, and died 1709.

Carew Raleigh was elected M.P. for Downton 1698 - 1702. Sir Charles Raleigh was elected M.P. of Downton 1685 - 1687, 1689 - c.May 1698.

From The Diary of John Young:

In the old church at Hursley Puritan and Cavalier, Mayors, Cromwells, Wyndhams, rested side by side. The sweetest name, that carries a perfume in mention, Jacoba Young.

John Young, who became his father’s heir on the death of his elder brother James, is I think only mentioned once in the diary, when the dean leaves 7 pounds with Matthew Lidford "to defray my Sone John." Fortunately the Alumni Cant. Helps us here. John was born at St. Martin’s in the Fields, (but the Register has Johannes Young filius Johannis et Jane bapt. 25 Maii 1621) and entered Sidney, his father’s College, in 1641. He was admitted at the Inner Temple in the same year and married in 1645 Honor Uvedale, daughter of Sir Richard Uvedale of Wickham, Hants.

Only a few days before writing these lines I was fortunate enough to find among some old wills that of Sir Richard, 1660, his daughter Honor being mentioned therein. The Exton registers record John Young’s marriage, the names of eight of his children, his own death in 1686, and his son John’s in Dec. 1692. This younger John must have died about six months after his marriage.

We have in the Cathedral Library 18 deeds of the manor of Idmiston, Wilts, the earliest being on of 1552. The last two are dated May 21, 1692, and are part of the marriage settlement of John Young and Mary Chandler of Idmiston. With these is the marriage settlement itself, signed by John and Mary and sealed with the Chandler arms. John Young’s seal is a bird with wings displaye, not his family arms.

Mary was the eldest daughter of Richard Chandler and Barbara his wife, of the family of Richard Chandler the antiquary. The Vicar of Porton with Idmiston informs me that there is no entry of the marriage in his register. John was born in 1648, and was therefore of mature age. He is described in the settlement as John Young of Exton merchant. The Exton registers record on Nov. 9, 1737, the burial of Richard Chandler Young. It is most satisfactory to trace his descendants of the dean in the male line down to 1746, when the Youngs were succeeded by Mr Chandler Raleigh. In 1805 a James Chandler appears. The Exton property was of some extent. Sixty acres are mentioned in the dean’s will as providing 2s. in bread every Lord’s day for the poor of Exton, Wallop, and the city of Winchester. These benefactions have disappeared.

The dean also bought the farm, mill, and woods of Exton for 3,500 pounds paying 2,000 down. Proceedings in London cost 80 pounds more. Various fees came to nearly 30 pounds including 2 sugar loaves, costing 38s. to Mr Mason, Recorder of London, who was bound with the dean to pay the other 1,500.

The dean was involved in further legal ramification whereby he was bound both to his brother Patrick and his nephew Charles, the latter to be paid 600 pounds "againe Whitsunday next in Scotland ore 6 weeks after heir at London..."

Among relations by marriage on John Young’s own side are his uncle Gibb and nephews Douglas and John Lindsay, all easily accounted for. The connection with Lady Ochterlongy "my sister" is uncertain, and there are two elusive English cousins Arthur Bold and "Cousin Waldron". The Bolds were at Bramshott, Hants, in the late seventeenth century and "Cousin Waldron" at Hyniton, Wilts. There is a more knotty problem before us. In the State Papers John Nicholas writes to his son Edward, Secretary of State, of "my cousin Young" and his "sickness" June-July 1640. The editor identifies this Young with the dean. Dr Young was sick, but it was in June 1639, as the diary and chapter book testify. Also, Edward Nicholas, grandfather of Sir Edward, married Anna Young of Harnham, Wilts.
