Records

Marriage

There is only one marriage record for these two names. Although it is in a different county to where the children were born, I have selected it as his place of residence was the same county, and it is in the year before their first recorded child. (I checked all civil reg entries for Caldwell).

Children's birth records

I checked all Irish Civil Registration entries for Castlederg 1872-1900. There were six children, all born at Carrickaholten, County Tyrone; the last being Charles in 1897.

1901 Census

  • Ancestry Record 1901Scotland #1249810 Robert Caldwell in the 1901 Scotland Census. ED 15, Sched 85, Line 9, Roll CSSCT1901_173.
  • Address: 21 John Knox St, Old Kilpatrick, Clydebank, Dumbartonshire, Scotland.
  • Robert Caldwell, 38, head, born Ireland, Coal Carter.
  • Margaret Caldwell, 44, wife, born Ireland.
  • Robert J Caldwell, 13, son, born Ireland, scholar.
  • George D Caldwell, 12, son, born Ireland, scholar.
  • Bella M Caldwell, 10, daug, born Ireland, scholar.
  • Annie Caldwell, 6, daug, born Ireland, scholar.
  • Charles Caldwell, 3, son, born Ireland.

1901 Census - Elizabeth

  • Ancestry Record 1901Scotland #1396422 Eliza J Caldwell, ED 2, Sched 18a, Line 16, Roll CSSCT1901_192.
  • Address: Erskine Ferry, Greenock Rd, Renfrewshire.
  • Eliza J Caldwell, Servant, age 15, born Ireland.

This looks like a fairly good match considering she is not with the family in the other census.

1911 census

The following record on Scotlandspeople: "501/ 38/ 19 Old or West Kilpatrick, Dunbarton" seems to have (without buying the full record):

  • Robert, 47
  • Margaret, 49
  • Robert, 23
  • George, 21
  • Annie, 16
  • Charles, 13

Passenger log 1

  • "Mamari", sailed London, arrived New Zealand 30 Dec 1913.[1]
  • Mrs M. Caldwell (housewife, 49)
  • Robt Caldwell (farming, 25)
  • Geo Caldwell (farming, 23)
  • Annie Caldwell (Domestic, 17)
  • Chas Caldwell (Scholar, 15)

All ex. Scotland.

Passenger log 2

  • "Athenic" sailed London 1 Jan 1913.[2]

Analysis

Bella in 1911

There is no Isabel or Bella in the 1911 census. None of the 1901-1911 death records in Scotlandspeople match on age . There is Isabella Mason, Old Kilpatrick 1910 but age says 3; and Isabella McDona, age 0, 1901.

Missing census entries

No 1901 census entry found for Margaret.

Too hard to explore them on the 1911 census just using the search results.

Missing passengers

Elizabeth Jane and Margaret do not appear on either passenger list that we can see.

There is Athenic 25 Jan 1911 with Bella Caldwell and Maggie Caldwell, unaccompanied females. They are listed as Daughter of a family Tully although several other "daughters" with different surnames too -- perhaps mischaracterized servants?[3]

Another option is Tainui 1910 featuring Maggie Caldwell, dairy maid, unaccompained single woman from Scotland.
