About the study
I am researching the name Cloves which was my father's mother's maiden name. To date I've concentrated very much on occurrences in England and have yet to tackle the rest of the world.
CLOVES is the main variant but I also include CLOVE. In addition I also track occurrences of Clovis as family rumour has it that this is where the Cloves name derives from.
Number English census entries, individuals by year:
Distribution of the name
Historically the name is most commonly found in South London and the Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire areas of England. Those in London were generally Thames Watermen and Lightermen.
I have collected all births, marriages and deaths from the England GRO indexes and all census entries for England through to 1911. I also have numerous parish register entries for England.
