Hello family! i am billy cadzow"s granddaughter-i think he was from newport in melbourne, australia and was probably born in the 1890's. I know he had a sister called Doris(twist)If anyone has any info on his mother and fathers name and where they came from-would much appreciate as i know nothing about this side of my family even though i have the name!

Hi Cadzows! I'm a Cadiou from Brittany and this site is great. I was wondering if Cadiou's ancestors could be Cadzows of Scotland. I guess they are. I've read that Cadiou means "little but strong fighter" in breton.

It could very well be. At the bottom of the page "1000 years", there's a listing of the alternate spellings of Cadzow that we've found so far. If you find a reference to Cadiou related to Cadzow, let us know and we'll publish it!

Thanks for writing! -- Derek

I am a Cadzow and live in Bothwell Scotland, i have one sister Norma and one brother Douglas,My Father was William Cadzow who came from a Family of 5,and were brought up in a small village of Glassford just outside Hamilton but they originated from Carluke,which interestingly has a village nearby called Kilcadzow.
my Fathers brother James Cadzow has three children 2 of which are boys David and Alan Cadzow both from the Hamilton area,so the Cadzow lineage is still expanding in the area of its roots.

I'm certain you have heard but I thought I would mention that archaeologists think they have uncovered 2 buildings and artefacts from the ancient village of Cadzow, which was believed to be lost. Congratulations!

Interpretation of my DNA results indicate that my ancestors were from Stonehouse/Mylneholme and I find the story intriguing. However, I can only find them living in Cummertree in 1820.

9th Great-Grandfather David Hamilton is commemorated in Rollinsford, New Hampshire, USA by a small plaque near where his homestead lay, whereby David was brought to the "New World" in shackles & chains, captured as Oliver Cromwell's prisoner during the Battle of Worcester 09SEP1651. David's ancestors were the Cadzows that planted the ancient oaks.

Our branch of the Cadzow Family lives in Buffalo, NY. My wife, Renee Cadzow is a professor at D'Youville College and on the board of directors for several not-for-profits, like the Community Health Worker Network of Buffalo. I am an archaeologist who "retired" to unschool our four kids and engage with the community. This has led to several op ed pieces in the local paper and a white paper focused on Traffic Pollution (

A few years ago, I started a family Tree that traced our Cadzow lineage to Niagara Falls and Auburn NY at the turn of the last century. That places our lineage in the same places at that of Donald Cadzow, the Pennsylvania State Archaeologist in the 1920's and Daniel Cadzow the Alaskan pioneer and early photographer. But as of yet, I have not established a concrete connection. You may be able to find it at I uploaded as many old photos as I could get my hands on.

Hi Dan, if you haven't already, you may want to touch base with Hugh and Tracey Cadzow, who are documented on the TODAY'S CADZOWs page. They also are descended from Donald and Daniel.

I am sorry to interfere with all of your wonderful family information BUT I think I need help from someone in your family. We live in WILLOWICK, OHIO & around 1962 my mother CELIA (Cil) CIRINO had a pen pal in Australia. She remembers a name of Joan Cadzow, P.O.Box 25, Keith, South Australia. wow, what a memory! She remembers pictures of Joan having blond hair & in Joan's letters to my mom Joan spoke about sheep. They had to take care of the families sheep. Joan always sent my mom packages of books & other personal items. I still have 2 Australia magazines. We were always so excited about Joan's packages. My mom is 88 years old. IF this Joan is part of your memories OR you know something about her life, please let me know. If this Joan is still alive - read this to her. My mother loved her. Thanking you in advance for any information & time. Angela Cirino Adams
Andrew Cadzow@ 12:21am 06-07-2015
Our current puzzle involves the life and possible descendents of Margarita Cadzow, daughter of Annie Love and James Cadzow, born around 1896, either in Scotland or abroad in South America.

We have her travelling with her parents and brother to and from Ellis Island in 1910

The family may have spent time in Mexico prior to 1910, but was settled in Ayr, Scotland by mid-1911. James was a railway engineer and travelled the Americas in the early 1900s.

Anyone with information is encouraged to respond.
