"Calderwoods of Calderwood"
Posted by: Doug. Short Date: September 03, 2000 at 12:45:36
  of 401

My mother was Elizabeth Jamieson Calderwood, daughter of Elizabeth Jamieson and Archibald Calderwood of Glasgow.Archibald's parents were William Calderwood and Margaret Galbraith. I was always told by my grandmother that my ancestors were the "Calderwoods of Calderwood" who lived in Calderwood Castle. The Calderwood family lost the castle and lands to the Maxwell family when the three brothers were forced out of the area and the only sister married a Maxwell. The remains of the castle on the banks of the river Calder in Calderwood Glen are in the now renamed Calderwood district of East Kilbride. I have a lump of the stone from the remains of the castle in my fireplace here in Norwich U.K. Please show your interest. Best Regards Doug. Short
