My name is Ian Stewart, my dad and aunt's mother, was named FLORA Campbell Caydzien before she married my Grandfather.
The unusual and rare surname Caydzien had intrigued my father and I for the last few years.
Searches found two distinct family lines of the CAYDZIEN family in Scotland, one in and around Glasgow and the other in and around Edinburgh. My research has shown that our line is the Edinburgh side.
Through compiling a family tree, I successfully traced OUR Caydzien family back to the wedding of JOHN Caydzien (my great,great,great grandfather) and Jane/Jean Ferrier in 1827, Edinburgh.
We are aware that in the early 1900's two brothers - GEORGE Caydzien and JOHN Murray Caydzien (cousins of my great,grandfather) emigrated to CANADA.
We are also aware that in 1858, brother and sister - WILLIAM and JANE and then, in 1860 husband and wife - JAMES and Jessie - all emigrated to NEW ZEALAND. (brothers and sister of my great,great grandfather)
I am currently aware of two living members of the CAYDZIEN family that live in BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA. To whom i intend to send letters.
Do you know of anyone else with this surname.
Do you have any ancestors that share this surname.
I look forward to your interest
