Calderon History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Portuguese, Spanish


The surname Calderon was brought to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "chalderonnier" or "cauderonnier," meaning "a maker of cauldrons."

Early Origins of the Calderon family


The surname Calderon was first found in Yorkshire, where the Calderon family held a seat from ancient times, having been granted the land by William of Normandy for assisting in the Conquest of 1066. The first known bearer of the name was Stephen Caldron, who was recorded in Yorkshire in 1289.

Migration of the Calderon family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Calderon arrived in North America very early:
