Hello! I was just letting you know that you have another blood born Cadzow member living in Little Rock, Arkansas - United States. I am 26 years old and have one older brother, James Cadzow and two daughters. That is the extent of our immediate Cadzow born heritage.

Assuming that the Cadzow name is older than the Hamiltons, was there are Cadzow tartan or coat of arms ?? Its not quite clear where our actual decendants come into the picture, it seems to start at the Hamiltons, but what was before them and how did our name end up becoming involved in the Hamilton Clan

I think you have to remember a few things about those times in an attempt to find an answer to this question. First, people did not necessarily take their parents' name prior to ~1700, so a direct lineage is hard to show. Second, the association of a particular tartan to a family or clan, didn't happen till after the Hamiltons had been awarded the barony of Cadzow. So it is unlikely that there was a particular tartan or coat of arms for the Cadzow name (anyone want to design one now?).

With regards to becoming involved in the Hamilton clan, Cadzow is recognized as a "sept" (defined as a division of a family or clan) of the Hamilton clan. I'm not sure how that came about, but it may have been a way to placate the remaining Cadzows when the Hamiltons took ownership of the Barony of Cadzow. Prior to that, there seems to have been a Barony of Cadzow in the Hamilton area, but information is scarce (although the Glasgow coat of arms story seems to indicate a presence back to at least ~500 AD). Given point 1, above, it seems unlikely that it was an individual family or clan, but rather a group of people living under the protection of the Barony.

My grandmother was Florence Cadzow she married Hubert O'Donohue. They left St Arnaud in 1939 to settle in Boweya . North East Victoria. My great uncle was Richard (Dick ) Cadzow who was the Father of Joan Cadzow who was a Prima Ballerina with the Dusselldorf Opera Ballet in Germany. If Kathleen Mary Bourke would like more info re Joan Cadzow I can help you.

Hi Richard, do you mean the web page "Cadzow: a short history" on this site? If so, the content of that page was the result of research done by my uncle, Nigel Cadzow -- Derek

Kim Emerson@ 4:01am May 16th
Hello Cadzows, My mother-in law is a Dorothy Cadzow & I am trying to help her find out more about her family. Her Grandfather was James, born Edinburgh 1861 to James, a gamekeeper & Janet (nee Watson or Watkin). James migrated to NZ (when?) and in 1885 married Etty Turnbull in Dunedin. They moved to Melbourne Australia and had many children incluing Dorothy's father Leslie.
Can anyone help me please?
Lynda Carleton@ 1:53pm May 6th
Me, again. Does the "village" or area of Cadzow still exist and if so, is there a cemetary there? I would love to see if any ancestors are buried there.
Lynda Carleton@ 1:50pm May 6th
My grandmother, Margaret Allison was born in Cadzow about 1904. She talked about the old castle, about tinkers who came with old bags of clothes to sell and everyday hard life at that time. Her brothers worked in mines and died young.
Paul G Dexter@ 6:55am Apr 29th
Grandfather was Leslie John Cadzow-Dexter. Beleive we are related to the Scottish Cadzow's. Has anyone heard of Leslie and know of his genealogy?
Robert Cadzow@ 10:18am Apr 28th
My name is Robert Cadzow and I just happened to stumble upon this site. It is truly amazing how popular the Cadzow name is. I was born in Australia and still reside here. My father was from St Arnaud in the state of Victoria. Unfortunately this is all very new to me so I dont have much info to pass on. One day I would like to go to Scotland and see where it all began.
Kathleen Mary Burke@ 5:44am Apr 7th
My name is Kathleen Burke-nee Cadzow. My father was Laurence Cadzow from St Arnaud in Victoria . Australia. I am interested in our cousin Joan Cadzow who was a well known ballet dancer in England and Germany.

My name is Jude Henzler. My wife, Grace, is from Fort Yukon, Alaska, and I know some of the Cadzows who live there. I have travelled to Rampart House many times and Old Crow and Johnson Creek Village and Whitestone Village as well. These are villages in Yukon on the Porcupine River system. (Johnson Village and Whitestone Village are abandoned.) I have collected copies of virtually all the books and journals, diaries etc. concerning that area, and I have provided copies of all these to the Old Crow community. Eventually I will also provide copies to the Yukon Archives at Whitehorse, and to the Archives at the Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, Alaska.

Donald A. Cadzow travelled in that region from about 1912 through about 1916. Do you know if he has a journal and/or a diary from that time? If so a copy of it would be an important and remarkable addition to the history of that region.
