Thanks to the DNA testing I am links to the GREEN line of Crow's.
The Green line is linked back to Sir William Crow (c1547 - 1627) of the Isle of
Sir William Crow - As the successive incumbent of Onchan, Braddan and then Bride, as well as being Vicar General's Official, who presided in one of the two probate courts was very widely known all over the Island. He was given the courtesy style "Sir William" because although a beneficed clergyman, he was not a university graduate. None of his descendants of our name took a role in the public life or government of the Island as a whole again until the time of Frank Herbert Crowe (1877 - 1960). "F.H." as he was usually known, was a well known personality, both as a Methodist local preacher, and in business life a farmer and cattle dealer. He became Captain of the Parish of Kirk Michael in 1930 - then quite an achievement for a self-made man. Comparatively late in life he was elected to the House of Keys. Since his time, his nephew the late Norman Crowe served in the legislature and held high office, and a number of other Crowes of the Kirk Michael branch have stood for, or served in political office.
A few local families have been strongly associated with a particular trade or occupation. The early Crows were notable for the number of members they contributed to the clergy of the established church in the Isle of Man. Since the time of Matthias Crow (b. 1734) every generation has been involved with stone masonry or building, and this continues with members one branch of the family still active in the building trade. Obviously many of our ancestors were farmers, and a small number of our kin remain in the agricultural industry today.
