Medieval Scottish names are rife with spelling variations
. This is due to the fact that scribes in that era spelled according to the sound of words, rather than any set of rules. Calbeck has been spelled Callbeck, Caldbeck, Caldebeck, Caudebec, Caldebek, Calbeck, Callbecke and many more.
Many Scots were left with few options other than to leave their homeland for the colonies across the Atlantic. Some of these families fought to defend their newfound freedom in the American War of Independence

societies and other Scottish organizations. Among them:
