Dave Calladine , from Yeovil, Somerset, UK, has been a Family Tree Circles member since Jan 2006. is researching the following names: CALLADINE, LAUNCHBURY, FULLER and 22 other(s).
I am a descendant of William Calladine (1803) and also, of course, of John Calladine (Salford). Do you have any idea of who William's parents were in Melbourne? I have a fairly complete family tree (I think!) but am stuck at that point. (Baptists present special problems!) WJC
Elizabeth is likely to have been Elizabeth Allcock, the first wife of George Wilkinson Calladine, b1830, by whom he had either two or three children. Elizabeth died in 1859. George re-married c1860 in Hawick , Scotland, and had four more children. John, b1869, moved to Troyes in France and established a French Calladine dynasty, several of whom are alive today. WJC
It sounds as if I may be the guilty party for the name is right. Not a lot has been done in the past few years but I now have an Apple Mac beast and a completely new family tree program. (One thing I have done is communicate with the French arm of the family.) There are something over 100 names (not all Calladines of course)on my database. What do you now need of me? - if I am capable of providing it! wjc
I would love to see that arm of the family, I have some of it stored on my old computer, was chatting to a chap in Calias, but it is not linked at all to any other tree. I have just posted the rest of my clan onto this site. I take each person, describe then as a birth year, name and location. and then go one to describe the info I have, followed by the children.
I think I have some more info on this line...
William, Yes I posted
1836 William Calladine of Hucknall, Shetland Shaw Mnf
1844 John Calladine (Salford) saw miller
The Shetland Shawl Industry of Hucknall-Torkard
1828 Charles Calladine of Hucknall - butcher
Are they related to any of these children of William and Mary Buck?
I'm sorry to be so late coming back to you. Yes, the French Calladines are related to William and Mary Buck through their son George Wilkinson Calladine. As he was a brother of those you list, there is a close connection. John (WJC)
dave i remember going to visit mrs calladine with my mother dorothy lees formerly barker dorothys parents owned in general store in hucknall. mrs calladine had been my mothers maid of honour when she married in church of england on the market square. the shawl facoty at that time was attached to the house as i remember. mr and mrs calladine had a daughter mary she wrote a childrens book talking about St mary magdeline church. mary married and eventually she and her husband took over the business and modernised manufacturing not using the hand looms any more. and expanded the business overseas as well. i do have a couple of scarves from my mum if you are interested i would send you one. whenever we would visit mrs calladine would give my mum one. mary however was tragically killed in a car accident. the husband continued on i have often wondered what happened to the business. the shawl factory i went to was on a street i believe off the high street. hope this is of interest to you.
Dave, I am researching the Calladine family of Hucknall. William Calladine Sr was my 3x great grandfather. You're date for the birth of William, first child of William and Mary Buck is incorrect. He was born in 1826 and was baptised 15th October of that year (a month after the record of his parents' marriage). He was married 3 times 1) Jane , 2) Ruth, 3) Louisa. I have copies of his will and obituary. His son, known as William Jr. Continued to run the factory which was relocated to Titchfield St. The old factory and substantial house were demolished last year to make way for a new road ( to Tescos). Hucknall Manufacturing Co still exists as far as I know.
You might like to look up an account of William Sr aged 82 under the spelling William Callandyne, it is delightful. I have a photograph of the cottage he lived in at the time.
I would be happy to let you have more details if you are still interested.
