Alice was born in Liverpool in about 1836. [1][2][3], the youngest daughter of Adam Scott and Sarah (Stokes) Scott, who lived at 39 Harding Street, Walton on the Hill, West Derby, Liverpool.[1] She married to James Tyrer Caldwell, to whom she bore ten children.

In 1851, 14 year old Alice was a general servant in the home of Charles L. Wrenshall, a professor of music, at 7 Low Hill, West Derby [2]

She married James Tyrer Caldwell on 21 February 1854. [4] At the time of her marriage Alice and James Tyrer were resident at Crosshall Street.[5].

By 1861 she was again living in Harding Street, this time with her husband and young child, Sarah Alice.[6] She had lost her first two children, both sons, by 1859.[7][8][9][10]
