Caldwell, Vincent

Caldwell, Vincent, a minister of the Society of Friends, was born in Derbyshire, England, in 1674. He became a member of the Society at the age of seventeen or eighteen, under the ministry of John Gratton. After a time he was recognised as a minister by the Friends. He labored for a while in his own country, and then crossed the Atlantic and took up his residence in East Marlborough, Chester Co., Pa., where he continued till his death. His ministry is said to have been "sound and edifying, being attended with the power of truth, and adorned with an exemplary conversation." Twice he made extensive visits to the meetings in the southern provinces of America, and once to several of the West India Islands. See Piety Promoted, iv, 345, 346. (J. C. S.)
