Four months later Caesar Ward was freed and began business at the sign of the Ship, between the Temple Gates, Fleet Street. Within a year Ward and Chandler were publishing partners and had shops in Scarborough as well as in London; a few years later they added a third shop in Coney Street, York” (C.Y. Ferdinand for DNB).
In 1742, Chandler branched out on his own with an ambitious project to compile and publish ‘The History and Proceedings of the House of Commons from the Restoration to the Present Time’. Bankruptcy and tragedy followed, and Chandler committed suicide in 1744.
