The present generation of the Calderbank family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived on the bank of one of the many rivers named Calder. There was a village called Calder in the northern county of Cumberland, which was situated in the Scottish/English borderlands.

Calderbank Early Origins



The surname Calderbank was first found in Cumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Caldbeck. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1321 when Thomas de Caldebeck.held estates in that shire.

Calderbank Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Calderbank include Calderbank, Calderbeck, Caldebank, Caldebeck, Coldbeck, Colebeck, Colebank, Colderbank, Coulderbank, Coulderbeck, Colderback, Coldeback and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Calderbank were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
