Origin of the Name Caldwell

The Caldwell family history was found in the archives. Meaning 'of Caldwell', this is a locational name that has been taken from places called Caldwell in Yorkshire, and Renfrewshire, Scotland . Variants include Coldwell, Calwell, Caudell, Cadwell and Chadwell. This name is of Celtic origin and is popular throughout England , Ireland , Scotland and Wales. It is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above islands. Examples of such are a Richardus de Caldewell, and a Johannes de Caldewell, who were recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379, and a John Caldwell and Margaret Hilde, were married in London in the year 1581. In Scotland Robert Cauldwell was a merchant in the service of Sir John of Montgomery, in the year 1405.In Ireland this name is an anglicized form of the native Gaelic O'hUarghuis and O'hUairisce septs that were located in County Tyrone and are rendered as Horish and Houriskey. The County Cavan sept of MacConluain also took Caldwell as the anglicized form of their name, as well as Cullivan and Colavin.
The Caldwell coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Caldwell descendants.
