Hugh’s great grandfather and his family headed south to Auburn NY, where his grandfather, Donald Adams Cadzow, was born. Donald was an adventurer, anthropologist, and archaeologist. He was head of the Penna Historical and Museum Commission from the mid ’30s to the ’50s.

Hugh’s parents are Donald Adams Cadzow II (born 1930) and Judith Anne.

In 1993, Hugh and his family travelled to Scotland and met some relatives on the Isle of Seil (Miranda Cadzow Brunner) who owns the Tigh’n’Truish pub at the foot of the “Bridge over the Atlantic” and whose sister is an actress in Glasgow (Juliet Cadzow).
