    There is mention of earlier Landers situated in the Massachusetts area, but it is uncertain whether they are directly related to the this William Lander.
    According to the "Pioneers of Massachusetts", page 279, comes the information that a Thomas Lannder or Lannders, age 22, came on the ship "Abigail" in July, 1635. He settled at Sandwich.He married Jane Kerbie on July 2, 1651, and had three children: John, born 2 January 1653; Martha, born 7 March 1654, and Mary, born 23 January 1656. Thomas Lannder died 11 November 1675.
    There are numerous mentions of a John Lander, of uncertain connection to our known Lander ancestors. John Lander was granted land by the Selectmen of Salem, Massachusetts on 5 April1672, and was a witness in the Court of Essex County, Massachusetts in 1674 (from the "Essex Aniquarian" Volume 9, pp. 38-41).
    A John Lander, along with his wife, were presented for committing fornication before marriage, and they were sentenced to either be whipped or pay a fine (from the Records and Files ofthe Essex County Quarterly Courts, Volume VI, July 20, 1675).
    John Lander and wife Sarah Glanfield, daughter of Robert Glanfield, conveyed part of Mr. Glanfield's house to a Samuel Carlton of Salem, Massachusetts on 30 December 1732 (EssexAntiquarian, Volume 10, p. 163).
    Supposedly, many of the Essex County records were destroyed in a fire, making connection between our William Lander and previous Landers somewhat dubious.
