Fascinating History! You've done a lot of research. Thankyou for the pictures, and the Utube video of Cadzow is a wonder; it is so beautiful in Scotland. I am from California, USA, so a much more arid climate. I am descended from the Hamiltons; my 18th GGF was Sir Walter fitz Gilbert de Hameldon (Hamilton) the 1st Laird of Cadzow who died abt 1346.

I am writing biographical sketches of early Yukon residents for the Klondike History Library and Yukon Archives. I have only a brief sketch of Daniel Cadzow who operated at trading post at Rampart House in northern Yukon from 1909 until his death in 1929 at a hospital in Dawson City, Yukon. Any information related to Daniel Cadzow would be very much appreciated.

Hi Edward, sounds like an exciting project. All I have found about Daniel is on this page on the site: There are also descendants of Daniel in Alaska and Pennsylvania that I am aware of.

I am part of the Hamilton Family and can trace the family all the way back to Scotland. Is there any pictures of the Hamilton family

Hi Chuck, thanks for your message!

Obviously, there are many Hamilton families around the world, so I'm assuming you're talking about one of the preeminent families, such as that of the Duke of Hamilton. Google will return you lots of results for Hamilton; to get you started, here's a video and a brief history of Hamilton:

I have enjoyed reading a book on the descendants of Cadzow written by NI Smart. I am travelling to Scotland in July and really look forward to visiting the area.

Good question -- I've put every valid piece of historical information I can find into the site already. Do you have suggestions on things you'd like to know?

Robin Jenkins@ 4:34am Mar 24th
Beautiful day in Hamilton so I am off to walk to Cadzow Castle and the wonderful Cadzow Oaks.

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!
Aurore Cadiou@ 8:55pm Jul 31st
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

Iain John Sellar Cad@ 1:37am Mar 12th
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.
Lynda@ 1:11am Mar 11th
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.
