Hi everyone
This website is really interesting.
My paternal great-grandmother was the daughter of William Caldwell,
born in Paisley, Renfrewshire, in 1801. William arrived in Australia in 1826, as a convict on the vessel Speke. He gained his freedom in 1835. He married Mary Fuller in 1852 and died in NSW, Australia in 1883. William's parents were William Caldwell and Mary Mitchell, both born in 1770 in Paisley, Renfrewshire. Unfortunately I haven't been able to trace any further back and would love to hear from any Caldwell's connected to William.
Regards to all from Melbourne, Australia.
Helen Giouris

Hello Everyone! What a fun site. I'm a 9x great granddaughter of John Caldwell and Mary Swetenham. My branch comes to America through their great grandson Samuel Caldwell and his son Hugh Caldwell Sr. who left Ireland around 1741/42 (I think...I'm still trying to find a good citation for that date)and settled in Lancaster and Clearfield counties in Pennsylvania. I started researching my ancestry about a year ago to see if I could debunk a family story that I'm related to Henry VIII (through a maternal branch that married into the Caldwells) and this site is one of the first I stumbled across. I'm having so much fun learning about our ancestors and the role they've played throughout history. I found Kings, Queens, Crusaders, Vikings, Visigoths, Archbishops, Knights Templar, Scottish rebels, American Patriots, and Oregon pioneers. We have much to be proud of in our Caldwell heritage!!

Right now I'm digging into the PA Caldwells and associated families during and immediately after the Revolutionary War. I'm hitting a brick wall in regards to the family of Jane Boyd who married Hugh Caldwell Jr. in Martic Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1783. Most of what's floating around on the internet shows her parents are from Virginia and it just doesn't make sense to me. I've spent weeks trying to find a connection between the VA Boyds and the PA Boyds and I just can't find anything. If anybody has any information on these families I would really love your help!

Thank you! I shall be spending a lot of time researching on your website getting my Caldwell family lines correctly documented on my family Tree. My 6th great grandparents were James Ritchie (whose mother was Jeanne Caldwell) and Margaret Caldwell. 1st or 2nd cousins, so I get a little extra Caldwell DNA hopefully. Actually I did the Ancestry DNA thing and I have quite a few areas in Northern Ireland and in Scotland where my DNA shows up, including Ayr and Prestwick! I just found on your website my 12th great grandparents were William Caldwell and Elise Wallace. I was just telling my sister the other day that I bet we might be related to the famous William Wallace because of where the Caldwell's lived when they lived in Scotland. Sounding better now! I love the Caldwell's story, because it represents the dreams of freedom and freedom of Worship as I have discovered with practically all of my Ancestors that can be traced back across the pond. I am a proud recipient of true Patriot DNA. All of my DNA Ancestors were in America before 1800!

I enjoyed your writings on the Caldwell Family Tree.

My mother was a Caldwell and I have traced her family back to a GGGGrandfather from AL/TN but stuck there for now. I found it very interesting that you mention the Norsemen. I have a hereditary hand disease (Dupuytren Contracture) that is referred to as the Vikings Disease. It is rare but pops up now and then in the family. We also have the occasional red head that pops up (My great grandfather, my younger sister, my granddaughter and my second cousin and her granddaughter. Family oral history has always said we had Scotch-Irish ancestors.

Thank you again for all your work.

I am a direct descendant of Captain Alexander Caldwell, I (1710-1766) and Margaret Caldwell McGregor (1709-1791). Alexander came across from Ireland in the era of the potato famine and settled in the Dunbarton / Litchfield area of New Hampshire. My branch of the Caldwell's are from the northeastern Massachusetts area and I am currently residing in southern California.
