Early Origins of the Tremeer family
The surname Tremeer was first found in Cornwall

The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 14th century when they held estates in that shire in the parish of Lanivet.
