  • Notes 
    • [History of the county of Middlesex, Canada p571] John Caldwell settled on Concession 2, Westminster in 1818, when there were only two settlers there, Wm. Bryant and John Elliott. He was local Methodist preacher of this district.

      [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.
