Patrick Scott Hogg was born circa 1961 in Galloway, Scotland, United Kingdom. He is the son of Robert and Jeanette Hogg. He comes from an old Scottish family. Hogg’s father, a gamekeeper and fisherman, traces his lineage back to the 1780s, near Yarrow, while Hogg’s mother, Jeanette Hogg, hails from an equally old family in Galloway. Hogg takes great pride in his Scots heritage, encompassing both the highlands and the lowlands.
