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

The roots of the distinguished surname Trevathan lie in the southwestern county of Cornwall, a land steeped in legend and mystique. The name is derived from "Trevethan," the name of places in the parishes of St. Eval, Budock, and Gwennap, and is made up of two elements: the characteristic Cornish "tre," meaning "homestead, settlement," and "buthyn," meaning "meadow." It is likely that the progenitor of this name was a native of Trevethan.
