Lord, Hugo's history is certainly eventful.
Originally, the Reed family started out in Paris, France. It was Fiona and Daniel Reed's honeymoon, and naturally, things happened and baby number one happened. Fiona was full British, from the North-East region and she'd met Danny when he came across from Germany as an exchange student. They dated, fell in love, got married, honeymooned and then stayed in England for a few years. Babies 1-4 were born here. Danny's job took them all different places. Spain (Baby #5), New Zealand, America (Baby #6), Canada (#7&8- Twins!) and Hungary, where baby # 9 was born. Their next stop was Germany, to Daniel's home town. They spent another four and a bit years here before they found out they were pregnant again. For some reason, they had gotten incredibly lucky and this time it was triplets. Five kids in under 6 years, wow. The triplets were then born in Germany- Hugo being the eldest triplet, then Otto and Margo. There were gaps between each of the children, with the highest gap being 19 years from the eldest to the triplets. The parents worked hard with their family, Fiona teaching them English and Dan teaching them German.
Up until the recent summer, the family still lived in Germany, even if it was a different part of it. Their father had gotten a job in Australia, which just happened to be where their mother's sister and brother in law, and their four kids, lived. This influenced the decision for the group to move over there, possibly for the last time as a lot of the kids were off doing their own things. The only kids they had with them were the triplets- who had just turned fifteen-, Harriet (17) and the twins, Olive and Peter (19), so it made it slightly easier. The main issue was that Hugo, who was a wizard, couldn't stay at his school since it was only a day school. This meant he'd have to relocate like everyone else to Australia, and when they did, the family eventually found Tallygarunga- and so they sent Hugo there.
