Lieutenant-Colonel William Caldwell

After serving with the British during the American Revolution, Caldwell (c.1750-1822) settled in Upper Canada near the mouth of the Detroit River close to present-day Amherstburg. His enormous influence with the Wyandots and Ottawas enabled him to acquire extensive holdings along Lake Erie, where he encouraged former loyalist soldiers to take up land.
