Caroline chisholm was woman of iron. She stood up for poor women's rights. She sacrificed her riches to help these women. Caroline Chisholm you rock.Go Caroline Chisholm!!!!!!!!!!
What an amazing woman! It is such a shame that great and inspiring women such as Chisholm get lost to history just because they are women (and 'his'tory is written by men.
this has helped thanx!
I go to Caroline Chisholm Catholic College in Melbourne Australia!.I think Caroline was an inspirational woman,
Im doin a project on Caroline Chisholm for SOSE this site is kool thanx 4 da info luv u ;P xx
I intend preaching on Caroline Chisholm this Sunday as in my opinion, as a 5th generation Australian, believe her to be Australia's greatest hero. Yet nothing is done to promote her more. There has never been a feature film made on her life or,as far as I know, nor even a documentary. Austarlia should be ashamed of this although I believe she fell into disrepute among the politically correcy brigade, this could be one reason.
CAROLINE CHSIHOLM ROCKS!
i need more info on her family
smartie pants NOT
interesting but what day was she born????i have a project and need a 1 page report if you have some info right on this thing please bye thankyou
I have been researching Caroline Chisholm's life and work for some while now, and hope to have a biography of her published in Melbourne later this year. I Mike Welsh would like to give a contact address, I can give him some details of the Chisholm family tree.

Caroline Chisholm was an amazing woman who did great things and I only wish that she could be more remembered. This has really helped me with my project but I only wish that there had been a bit more on India.
im doing a project thsnk you this website has been a great help- i got a level a plus.....thanks once again...x
Im also doing a project on Caroline and also go to the school in year 4. Your information was really helpful but made my mum upset that such an amazing women is not remembered in her home country. I think we should start a campain to have a memorial in Northampton.
Great site andCaroline was a sinsere person she helped
Caroline Chisholm was a great person
couldn't find anything on her family but thought rest of info woz fab!! good work:) :) :)
Yo, caroline chilsolm was a great lady (from what i have heard from this website)and i am privaliged to go to a school that goes by her name!
As my partner is Caroline's great(x3)grandson ... I find anything about her fascinating, but was wondering if anyone knew ... because I suspect I do ... how she came to be on the decimal currency in 1966?
Thanks for all the information because I'm doing a assignment on her and yeah it was really handy.
I go to Caroline Chisholm wootton and I have to do a project about her and I didn't know so much about her
hi my name is tom lyman and i go ccs i love it der it prob the best skl ive beeen to
i love caroline chisholm especially the pe department i wouldnt know what to do with out pe lol
her grave is in Billings RD cemetary
i belive caroline chisholm is a really nice and strong woman i chose he 4 my school project cause i heard lots of stuff about he
Can anyone help me with information relating to Carolines' children, grandchildren and their families? I would love to hear from any family members. Regards, Mike Welsh
I am a distant relation to Caroline and am trying to trace the family back. My great grand parents names were Donald and Marie Chisholm who are buried in Naracoorte S.Aust. My grand mother was Jean Chisholm who married Samuel Welsh. I have been hearing stories about Caroline all my life & am happy she has been remembered so dearly.
I decided to do our school project on Caroline Chisholm. Also my middle name is Caroline too. She is a very clever and famous Lady of her time and it is sad to hear that she is not so famous in England. Caroline has definately helped our Country, Australia and we will never forget her either. May we never forget her ever. When we fly back to the U.K. next year, I will insure that we will see her home town, school and grave. Thanks very much. Dana
im from melbourne and in yr 12. i decided to do my creative piece on caroline chisholm because she inspires me and was a strong women who helped those in need and was really kind and put everyone else in front of herself... a really nice thing to do...well hope i get an A!! lol

Hiya ppl who Made this Site!
All I Have To Say is, Your Site totally Rx! Oh, i just wanted to tell you I'm from Australia, and I'm doing a Report on Caroline Chisholm, and when i said i was doing it in her , (Because we Got to Choose), my friends where all like: "Who?" So you don't Just Mention her name to an Australian and everyone can, Like, give you a Biography on her!
That's all I Wanted to Say.
Kiss, Kiss, Luv Ya!

Andrew Chmielewski, Northampton, UK
I'm impressed with all the enthusiastic comments about this great lady, especially as we in Northampton have done little to remember her by. I would have thought the least we could do would be to erect a monument to her, but I cannot even find her grave in Billing Road cemetery, despite frequent searching (I often walk through the graveyard on my way to work). I suspect it has been overgrown completely since 1977 when Mr Langford spotted it.

Caroline Chisholm is the Best school eva im in YR5 and it is tottally cool.
I have just met the Principal at Caroline Chisholm Catholic College in Melbourne. We hope to set up some links between his school and CCS in Northampton. It will take a few years but it will be great in future if staff and students from Northampton can spend time in Melbourne. My counterpart assures me he will have plenty of people who would be equally keen to visit us here.
I go to Caroline Chisolm school and i think that Caroline Chisolm was a great person and that she did good deeds and helps lots of people in the world even though her dad was a pig farmer.
i go to caroline chisholm school n i got lots of info from heree fanx
i lived in the uk for 10 yrs and was amazed that no-one there had heard of caroline chisholm as she was one of the greatest (if not the greatest) women your country ever produced. we have several schools and tertiary colleges called after her in melbourne. I'm presently helping my daughter do a project on influential women in history and she has chosen caroline. i was very sorry to see caroline chisholm's face removed from our $5 note in favour the queen. hopefully, the powers that be will come to their senses and return Carline to her rightful place, unless they want to put her on the $50!
Ann and Sarah
I am helping my young daughter Sarah with her project on Caroline Chisholm and I am amazed at the facts I am learning, such a great example of how we all should life,how the world could be if we all lived as Caroline did, serving humanity.I only hope that I can put into practise in some small way what I have leant from Caroline.
I'm giving a homily for an end of year Mass for Caroline Chisholm High School and being a priest I am ashamed to admit, I had to look here for some info on her as I knew diddly-squat about her apart from seeing her picture on the old $5 note. Thanks for the insights.
I go to caroline chisholm School. This website was a real help. Thankzxxx
I really enjoyed this website and learnt alot from it.
Hi everyone at CCS especially all my best mates Sian, Hannah, Emma, Laura, Naomi and Rachie D!! Also a big shout out to Dan Brophy - ignore what everyone says about you you're the sweetest kid alive! As for CCS as a school ... it's a brilliant learning experience and I've learnt more in a few months than I had in a private school!! Thanks for this article - now us students can discover who our school was named after!
Hio peps from my school. I am simply amazed about how many names i know. I go CCS to and it's the best school ever. At school at the moment were putting on a production of Caroline Chisholm the musical and it's well fun if any one wants to really learn the life of miss Chisholm you might want to go alond. it's happerning around december this year.

i go 2 Caroline Chisholm (england,wooton)i wondered who caroline chisholm was and now i no thanx xxxx
My GG Grandparents and their 7 children came out to Adelaide South Australia on the Slains Castle under Caroline Chisholm's resettlement scheme. I have a copy of a diary of the voyage kept by another passenger and it seems like they were very lucky to have made it to Australia. Times were tough!!! It makes you wonder what conditions must have been like back in England for them to embark on such a formidable undertaking.
Thanks for your page and yes we do respect Caroline here in Oz.

I am a playwright living in northampton, i see CC's grave every day. i'm currently gathering research on her for a play which i hope to work on with the new CC school here in northampton. very little seems to be known about her eraly days, even which village she was from... anyone who wants to send on anything they think might be useful, please ffel free: firstname.lastname@example.org
CC deserves to be better known in what is the place where she started & ended her full life.

it was realy intersesting as caroline chishlom is me skool
I have just read a biography of Caroline Chisholm and though I do not take everything I read as accurate, I just wanted to point out a couple of inconsistencies compared with your information. Firstly, I believe that Sydney was not the place everyone was rushing to except in that when people travelled to Australia, they did tend to arrive and stay in Sydney. One of Chisholm's projects was to get the immigrants out of the city and into the country. She also had to push for people from Britain to go to Australia in favour of America which was a closer and more established and popular destination. Horror stories of Australia's heat, dryness and animals scared people away. Secondly, I am sad to say that not all Australians have heard of Chisholm. When I asked several people I know here (I am English and have just moved to Australia), the best answer I got was 'The name rings a bell...' So, Australians need some reminding of who Caroline Chisholm was and what she did for Australia. I have more research to do and I apologise if my comments are inaccurate but I hope to make people aware of Chisholm and her work both in Australia and the UK. Christmas wishes to all admirers everywhere!
i go 2 caroline chisholm school (wootton) its really good but we dont no that much bout caroline chisholm! i found out bout her on here fanx XxX

I live in Kyneton, Victoria, Australia, where Caroline Chisholm lived for four years. My husband comes from North Hampton, and I was in Chisholm House when at school in the 1960s. For the past six years I have been writing a history of the women of my town. CC is prominent throughout, even in a way during the years she was forgotten by 'the rest of the world'. If you would like to know more please let me know. My email address is email@example.com
I am doing a Project on caroline chisholm and I found this infomation very interesting and useful thanks
Colin William James Langford
My Father, Major Lawrence (Bill)Langford (Dec),
58th Northamptonshire Reg
Born Northampton, we now reside in Australia, found Caroline Chisholm grave in 1977. This information plus photos of the grave were passed onto the Australian Gov by me when my Father died in 1999. The Langfords, whom my father and I are direct decendents, had a farm next door to Nee Caroline Jones, who's family were pig farmers in Wootton. The Langford families old farm is now Langford drive I beleive? I am glad that someone else has correctly given Caroline Chisholm the acclaim she rightly deserves. I tried to have the Oz Gov erect a plaque telling of our connection to Caroline Chisholm as a year 2000 project, & to remember our long lost neighour. Unfortunately to no avail.
