About The Clothier Family
The name Clothier is an interesting and unusual surname, it is of Anglo-Saxon origin and comes 
from an occupational name for a seller or maker of Cloth and Clothes. Job descriptive surnames 
originally denoted the actual occupation of the name bearer and then later became hereditary.
My Grandfather did a lot of research into the family name . After he died I decided I would 
carry on finding out about the name Clothier and searching for the links between the different 
branches of the family and how we were all related. The surname can be found spelt Clother and 
I have found an early spelling as Clothyer. These are known as Variants. 
In the beginning this branch of the Clothier's came from Stoke Sub Hamdon, a village in the 
county of Somerset which is 5 to 6 miles North West of Yeovil and 2 miles South of Martock 
railway station. The village is situated on the river Parret, many of the inhabitants used to 
work in the glove making industry but agriculture was also a large industry. Some of the family 
moved to Portsmouth in Hampshire and then in the early 1800's onto Charlton, Woolwich, London, 
England and then spread out from there.

In the late 1850's Benjamin Clothier went to Eagle Hawk, Victoria, Australia. In the early 
1860's his brother Samuel Clothier also went to Eagle Hawk, Victoria, Australia.

Joseph William Clothier about 1852 built a shop at 51 Albion Road, Charlton. The shop became a 
Baker's and Confectioners. After Joseph died his brother Edward Clothier  ran the business and 
his son William Charles Clothier became a master baker and ran the business when his father 
died. His son William Edward Clothier who was also a master baker helped ran the business. (51 
Albion Road became known as 1a Woolwich Road Charlton). 

In the early 1890's Joseph James Clothier Went to India.

In the early 1900's Stanley Nowell Clothier went to Canada.

A variant of Clothier is CLOTHER, William Clother 1725 and Elizabeth Baxter were married on the 
16 July 1746 and lived in Kent, their children were born in Chatham and Rochester Kent. John 
Clother was born 1747 and died 1837, his brother William was born 1749, another brother Charles 
was born 1757 and a sister Edith born 1759.
John Clother born 1747 married Elizabeth Freshwater on the 17 Mar 1775 and had the following 
children John born 1776, Fanny born 1780 and George born 1782.
