I cant find a connection.There were (and prob still are ) 300 clows in Suffolk in 1881. It is quite a cluster!
I can find yours easily in the 1851 and 1841 census on ancestry.com
In 1851 he is shown as being 14
Father Jonathon Clow 46 lab b Parham Mother Hanah 41 b shotisham David 14 Eliza 11 John 9 Ellen 5 Living with sister Elizabeth Last unmarried 32 sister so Hanah must be Hanah last
The 1841 shows also a Mary age 7 so she could be 17 in 51 and out to work
I have checked against my 50/60 clows but cant find a connection.I do not have any Parham clows.That does not mean there isn’t one.I have the feeling most are connected and I have in the back of my mind to map the lot one day.Parham is only 5 miles from my lot based around Framlingham
Brian goes back to a Thomas clough about 1700 whose son was Thomas clow, whose son was john clowe and whose so was enoch clow b framlingham 22 jan 1795.I am connected to that lot.They all had 5 to 7 children so there are lots
