Caldwell Genealogy & History

Caldwell is a locational English surname, with many small towns carrying the name. It comes from the Old English cald or ceald, meaning cold, and well or wella, meaning a spring, stream or well. Thus, a cold stream, which is a reasonable name for a village. Caldwell family history begins with the enrollment of Adam de Caldwella of Derbyshire in 1195?Derbyshire, incidentally, does have a small town named Caldwell. While Caldwell genealogy cannot lay claim to many famous people, over a dozen members of Congress had the name in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as well as Union General John C. Caldwell.
