Caldwell Clan

Derived from the old English word, ‘cealdwielle’ meaning ‘cold strean’, it is impossible to find a specific territory from which the Caldwell name originates.

However, old Caldwell lands can be found in Renfrewshire and the oldest record of a family holding the name comes from the Renfrewshire region with a William de Caldwell holding lands there in 1342.
