I was told that Clews means dweller in a deep sided valley or ravine and that it is related to the names Cleugh and Clough. This though came from one of those English Heraldry dictionarys that do the rounds in shopping malls from time to time. But there it is for what it is worth, and it is not so far off from your info.
