The Clow family has been a notable presence in Murray Harbour North since the early in the nineteenth century. Clow house was built in 1865 by James Clow, son of Scottish immigrant Benjamin Clow. James was a prosperous shipbuilder, lobster packer and merchant. His son Benjamin took over the business in 1890. The company went bankrupt in 1928, but Benjamin's son, George, carried on a small operation until 1930 when there was a settlement of the bankruptcy. At various periods George's brother, James, was associated with him in the operation of a general retail business, Clow Bros. This business was sold to Lowell Johnston in 1971.
