As soon as I saw Wing in the title, I knew I'd find a Bachiler. I'm also a descendant of Reverend Stephen Bachiler, my grandmother was a BATCHELDER born in Chichester, New Hampshire. Nearly every town in Rockingham County, where I live, has a Batchelder Road, or Bachiler Pond or some other reminder of the family descended from Reverend Bachiler.
