Captain John Candler of Marblehead was a mariner, mostly sailing between the ports of Salem and Marblehead in Massachusetts and various ports around the Mediterranean, such as Madeira, Leghorn (Livorno), Tunis, and Cape Verde.

In his genealogy of the Sears family, Samuel P. May states that John T. Sears originally came to the Marblehead/Danvers MA area with Capt. Candler. I'm hoping that tracing John Candler's voyages will help determine John T. Sears's origins.
