Hugh was born on Wednesday, 13 July 1881 at Parkes, New South Wales.2 He was the son of Henry Olliver and Mary Jane Nicholson. As of circa 1885, Hugh F. N. Olliver was also known as Hughie.3 He presumably lived with his parents at Victoria Street, in Parkes, New South Wales, circa 1889. Henry and Mary were to remain there for another 45 years (after having lived in three other houses in town).3,4

Hugh F. N. Olliver married Alice Frances Culkeen in 1909 at Palmerston North, New Zealand.5,6 Hugh (and presumably his spouse Alice) lived in September 1932 at Opunake, Taranaki, New Zealand.4

Although Hugh and Alice were reported by the newspaper as living in Opunake in September 1932, family sources suggest that they were most likely living in Palmerston North.4,7 Hugh (and presumably his spouse Alice) lived circa 1934 at New Zealand.3

Hugh died on 22 May 1963 at Palmeston North, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand, at age 81.8
