Some time back, I published, in the section

The Crowe gentry of County Clare: origins and history

Philip Crowe 


Notes on the origins and history of the Crowes of west Clare

Phil Crowe now has available revised versions of his articles about the Crowe gentry of Co.Clare published in The Other Clare last year and this. 

Some informational footnotes have been added relating the contents to Irish history, culture and geography. A number of images have been included: the memorial stone in the Ennis Friary for Robert Crowe and family dated 1772; Abbeyfield House, the residence of Thomas Crowe (1777-1855) and now the Ennis Garda station; the entry in a marriage register for George Crow and Mary O'Brien dated 27 January 1787 which is a critical link in the story of the Crowe family who settled in southern New South Wales; and a Descendants' Chart showing the relationships among the individuals who appear in that story.  

If you think you might have a connection, Phil would be very happy to hear from you.

Phil is happy to send copies and can be contacted via me, Chris. You can contact me via the email address in ABOUT ME.. and then view my complete profile...

Here is a taste of what is available... all  can be clicked to enlarge.
