Newton was the son of John & Elizabeth Sprole Hugg, brother of George C. Hugg, and husband of Sally D. Kain Hugg.

During the Civil War, Hugg was in Company I, 34th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry, 16th Army Corps. He was commissioned a second lieutenant in October, 1863; promoted to first lieutenant in December, 1864; and commissioned, though never served, as a captain in Company G in 1865.

After the war, Hugg began studying medicine, graduating from Philadelphia University in 1869. In 1870, he started a medical practice in Camden, New Jersey. He later served as examining physician for the Commercial Council, Legion of the Red Cross, and as a trustee of William B. Hatch Post, No. 37, Grand Army of the Republic (where he was also surgeon for several years). He and his family belonged to the Tabernacle Baptist Church, where George was treasurer and member of the Board of Trustees, and taught Sunday school for some time.
