There is also speculation that it is a variation of the British Clow, Clowe, and Clough. There is a legend that I have not verified but my father said he was able to track down in the 1980's. During the Revolutionary war a reward was posted for a deserter named Abraham Clow, 2 weeks later an Abraham Cloward enlisted on the American side. He had assumed that the were the same person. We thought this was the first time the name "Cloward" had ever appeared, but from what I've been seeing here, the name has existed before the Revolutionary war
