The Treroice surname is derived from one of several place name in Cornwall. These place names in turn comes from the Cornish words "tre," meaning "homestead" or "settlement," and "rys," denoting a "ford," or perhaps alluding to a person's name.

Treroice Early Origins



The surname Treroice was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor at Trerice, near Newlyn, South-West Cornwall. Michael Trerice (some sources list him as Mattew,) owned the 500 acres of the Trerice estate, which included the present-day location of Trerice Manor. Ownership passed to an heiress, Joan Trerice in or about the reign of Edward the Third (reign 1327-1377,) who married into a branch of the Arundell family.
