Hugh married Linda Petrov on August 22, 2004. His close friend Douglas James Barry III accompanied him. Hugh divorced his first wife Renee, the mother of his daughter, Jane Penvellyn, nearly two years before he married Linda. He moved back to Blackmoor Manor with his daughter because his new wife had to stay there for six months if he was to keep it. When Nancy is there, he is doing business meetings in Rome.
When Nancy brings the Penvellyn family secret to light, Hugh demands to be taught everything that the initiates know.
