Welcome to our Calkin Family Tree.

Our Calkin Family Tree

We have constructed our view of our part of the Calkin ancestry.
It covers TWELVE generations, going back to Asa's Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Nathaniel who lived in the middle of the 17th century. I have yet to track his birthdate but it is likely to be around 1650 ... so ... over 350 years of our family are represented.

These details include information from the 1901 census which contains 169 Calkin family members who can be collated into 42 family units.
I have also been through the 1891, 1881, 1871, 1861. 1851 and 1841 censii.

I have also obtained a document dated 6th October 1989 which lists the full names and addresses of 367 Calkin families.
It comprises 84 here in England, 216 in the U.S.A., 48 in New Zealand and 19 in Canada.
