The surname Calderone 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."

Calderone Early Origins



The surname Calderone was first found in Yorkshire, where the Calderone 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.

Calderone 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 Calderone include Calderon, Calderone, Cauldron, Cawdron, Coldron, Caldron 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 Calderone were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
