An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2018


The Anglo-Saxon name Cloues comes from when the family resided in Cheshire in an area that was described by the Old English word as cloh, which means that the bearers of this surname lived near a ravine or hollow. It also could be described as the place that was set back from the town or village.

Cloues Early Origins



The surname Cloues was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Cloues or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Clowes who settled in New England in 1750; John Clowes settled in Philadelphia in 1834; Joseph Clowes settled in San Francisco in 1852; John Clows settled in Delaware Bay with his wife Marjorie and three children in 1683.
