Clowrys in Irish Census 1901 & 1911

The 1901 and 1911 Census provided vital information on Clowrys around the start of the 1900s. The National Archives of Ireland has digitised the 1901 and 1911 Census of Ireland and it can be searched here: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/ In terms of Clowrys in the 1901 and 1911 Census, you must remember to search not only for the surname “Clowry” but also for misspellings such as “Clowery, Clowrey, Cloury, Clowey, Clowny, Cluwey” etc.

In the time of the recording of the census, some people were illiterate or simply were bad at spelling and often names can be misspelled in the census. Bad hand writing, also made the job difficult when the Census were being digitised. I have documented my findings on Clowrys in the 1901 & 1911 Census below.
