Where did the English Treece family come from? What is the English Treece family crest and coat of arms? When did the Treece family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Treece family history?

The name Treece is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived near some prominent tree or in one of the settlements in Devon called Tree, Trew, True, or Trow. The surname is derived from the Old English words treow, trew, or trow, which are in turn derived from the Old English word treow, which means tree. However, the surname Treece is occasionally derived from residence at Trow Farm or Trow Down in Wiltshire. The derivation in this case is from the Old English word trog, which means trough.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Treece are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Treece include: True, Truue, Trew, Trewe, Truwe, Trow, Trowe and others.

First found in Warwickshire, where Rannulfus Truue was recorded in 1180.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Treece or a variant listed above:
