Whilst researching the Clowry family, there was 20 branches identified and all orignate from Carlow.
A very loose naming scheme for each branch was used to simplify the sorting of the documents.
The naming scheme is based on the origin of oldest Clowry member from each branch. Wex = Wexford, BOR = Borris Carlow, MYS = Myshall Carlow,
BAG = Bagenalstown Carlow, LEI= Leighlinstown Carlow, CAR = Carlow Town,
NLI = National Library of Ireland. All are self explanitory NLI(This signifies that the oldest relative was in the USA, Canada or Australia before Irish
records in 1864 and the only place to find information on these branches in Ireland is possibly
the National Library of Ireland parish records). The research also found included Clowreys and Clowerys.
You can find information on each branch below.
