Name: Clow, Andrew (d. ca. 1793)


Historical Note: The merchantile business Andrew Clow & Co., based in Philadelphia, PA, was owned by partners Andrew Clow and David Cay. The firm owned several ships which traded goods in both Europe, Bahamas, and ports in the eastern coast of the United States. Products sold included textiles, sugar, tobacco, grain, fruit, and trees. The company received cutlery and textiles from England, raisins, almonds, and wine from Spain, and brandy and wine from France. Some of the merchants that the company worked with included, Joseph Hadfield of London, Thomas Hadfield of Baltimore, Rathbone & Benson of Liverpool, Tunisey, Power & Co. of Cadiz, and Douat, Labate & Plante of Bilboa. In 1793 both Andrew Clow and David Cay died of yellow fever, and left William Crammond, Hugh Holmes, and John Leamy as executors of their personal and business estates. The executors hired Jasper Moylan, an attorney to handle the many suits that were brought against the estates. The suits that went on for several years, including the two most well-known brought by Muilman & Co. and Joseph Hadfield, both of London.
