Resource Toolbox

an English Congregational minister, was born at Mid-Calder, near Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1777. -When he was quite young his parents moved to Edinburgh; and at the age of. fourteen they apprenticed him to the trade of a mason, which he fol-. lowed till upwards of twenty. In 1799 he became a student of theology, under the care of Mr. Innes, and of Mr. Ewing, of Glasgow. In 1802 he commenced to labor at Falkirk, where previously the Congregationalists had no regular preaching; and here he soon gathered a Church, to the pastorate of which he was ordained, Nov. 22, 1803. In 1813 he accepted an invitation to Wick, in Caithnes and remained there for nearly twenty years. He removed to Howden-on-the- Tyne, near Newcastle, England, in 1834, where he was the means of building a new church; and, after a successful pastorate of eight years, resigned his office, owing to impaired health. He died in 1850. Mr. Caldwell was a man of spotless character, great familiarity with the Scriptures, and eminently faithful in all the duties of life.
