    Notes 
    • Rosa Caldecutt, after separating from her husband, lived at Denham Lodge on Hammersmith Road from 1875 to 1884. Her son Frederick Richards Leyland Caldecutt was born there in 1883. Her solicitor, Edward Green, assisted her with her attempts to obtain maintenance from Leyland for their son. In October 1887 she threatened to horsewhip Leyland! Leyland failed to honour his obligation fully although he did pay an annuity for the the child's support. The Leyland family stopped this after Frederick Leyland's death in 1892. On 19 December 1889, when she was living at 12 New Burlington Street, she made her last Will and Testament; she died there the following year.

      Val Prinsep (who married Frances Leyland [daughter of Frederick Leyland] in 1884, and was not entirely unprejudiced) described Rosa as an 'unhappy lady' who had attempted to deceive Leyland and his family. Following the death of Leyland in 1892, Prinsep informed the attorney general Lord Charles Russell, who was attempting to raise funds to help Rosa's orphaned son, that Leyland had not accepted that the child was his: 'indeed the whole history of his conception and birth is so miraculous that it cannot be wondered at that a man of the world should have the gravest doubts.'

      Rosa Caldecutt was also known to James McNeill Whistler. During his time in Venice, Leyland and Caldecutt had visited his studio in the White House and had seen the satirical paintings 'The Gold Scab' and 'The Loves of the Lobsters'.

    • 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."

    • 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.
