      Caldwell 1
      [HMC p754]: Matthew Caldwell is of Scotch-English descent, and a son of John Caldwell, who was born in Nova Scotia and came to Ontario, settling on the Second Concession, in Middlesex County, in March, 1818, bringing his family, which consisted of a wife and seven children, with him. The names of the latter are as follows: -John, Meron, Elizabeth, Ezekiel Robert, Hannah, Sarah A., and last was born Matthew.The country was in a very wild state at the time of their settlement, not a tree having been cut where the vcity of London now stands. Mr. Caldwell entered 200 acres of land, which he managed to clear by dint of hard labor, and became noted throughout his neighborhood as a hard working man, and one whose word was as good as his bond. He was a member of the Methodist Church, being also a local preacher in the same, and lived to be 77 years of age. Matthew Caldwell, his son, was born at Long Point, Canada, in 1814, but was reared on his father's farm in Middlesex County, where he became skilled in the art of woodcraft, but received very meagre educational advantages, what education he obtained being secured in the primitive log school-house of pioneer times. After reaching manhood he was married to Margaret J., a daughter of Gabriel and Polly (Green) Manning, by whom he became the father of two children, John Henry and Sarah J. Mrs. Caldwell died six years after her marriage, and the widower then wedded Miss Maria, a daughter of Joseph and Hannah Manning, to which union was born the following family: -Margaret A., William, George, Hannah, Joseph and Charles. Mr. Caldwell has resided on the farm on which his father settled all his life. He and family attend the Methodist Church, and he has always been an upright and honorable citizen and a true friend and neighbor.
