Caldwell Family of Newgrange

Biography/History

<p>The collection was most likely put together and added to by Charles Benjamin Caldwell, who had an interest in his family’s history. He gathered the material from a number of locations in the late 1800s and in doing so he also collected primary material relating to the Caldwells of Castle Caldwell and the Abdy and Gordon families and also secondary material of genealogical interest such as transcripts supplied by the College of Arms in London, newspaper clippings, extracts from church registers etc. His wife, Sophia Frances née Cust appears also to have collected family papers which accounts for the presence of correspondence and other papers of members of the Cust and Brownlow families.</p>
