  • Notes  Eloped:
    • Although unconfirmed, it appears that Thomas and Rose eloped to Australia. They travelled as husband and wife aboard the clipper "Blanche Moore" arriving in Melbourne on 30 August 1862.
      Rose's grandson says; "... It may have been that her father Michael Gateley had objected to her marriage, because her marriage took place after his death ...", and about Thomas' father, Thomas, he says: "... Thomas Caldecutt (snr) died on 25 October 1868, and his will was proved by his two sons, Edward Caldecutt of 48 Brunswick Road, Liverpool – engraver, and Thomas Caldecutt of 90 Wood Street, Liverpool – looking glass maker. So Thomas was back in England from Australia as at this date."

    Divorce Filed:
    • Frederick Richards Leyland was cited as a co-defendant in the divorce proceedings brought by Thomas Caldecutt against his wife, Rosa, in 1875. The proceedings were settled by agreement between the three parties. Thomas, with a monetary settlement from Leyland, emigrated to Australia where he set up the Australian Glass Company in Sydney.
