- The Crowe family were living at Nutfield, near Ennis, county Clare in the 1780s. Burke records that Thomas Crowe, second son of Robert Crowe of Nutfield, married a Miss Wainwright of Dublin and had a son, Thomas Crowe of The Abbey, Ennis. He married Ellen Tymons and had six sons and four daughters. The eldest son, Thomas Crowe ,born in 1803, became a barrister and lived at Dromore House, parish of Ruan, barony of Inchiquin which he owned in fee. In 1838 he married Isabella Hume of Humewood, county Wicklow. In the mid 19th century Thomas Crowe held land in seven baronies of county Clare but the main part of his estate was concentrated in the parishes of Ruan and Inagh, barony of Inchiquin and in the parishes of Kilfarboy, Killard and Kilmurry, barony of Ibrickan. In 1857 he bought over 2,000 acres of the estate of the Marquis of Thomond in the barony of Inchiquin. His youngest brother, Wainwright Crowe, lived at Cahircalla, parish of Drumcliff, barony of Islands. In the 1870s Thomas Crowe of Dromore owned 6,121 acres in county Clare and the representatives of his brother, Wainwright Crowe, owned a further 3,126 acres. By 1909 Wainwright F. Crowe had agreed to sell over 1,600 acres to the Congested Districts' Board. The mansion house of Dromore and almost 1,000 acres of untenanted land was still in the possession of the Crowes in 1906. Thomas Crowe's grandson, another Thomas Crowe, sold Dromore in 1936.
