The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Treschome family, who lived in Northamptonshire at Rushton. Today Tresham is a chapelry, in the parish of Hawkesbury, union of Chipping-Sodbury, Upper division of the hundred of Grumbald's-Ash in Gloucestershire.

Treschome Early Origins



The surname Treschome was first found in Northamptonshire at Rushton. Conjecturally, the family are descended from one of the holders of the lands of Rushton at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 A.D. The holders of the land, which consisted of a village and 2 mills were Hugh, who held it from Robert de Tosny, William who held it from Robert de Bucy and Eustace from the Countess Judith. All three shared in this rich hundred of Northampton in 1086.

"The Hall [of Rushton] is a fine old building erected by the Treshams, a family of consideration in the time of Elizabeth: at one extremity of the park is a curious triangular lodge, which is almost unique." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The church of Geddington, Northamptonshire has a memorial of the family. "The church is an ancient structure, consisting of a nave, two aisles and a chancel. The tower and spire are of the perpendicular style, and are extremely graceful and well proportioned; the spire is octagonal, with three stages of lights, the lower ones being double. Three sedilia, with a piscina, are in tolerable preservation; and in the chancel are memorials of the Tresham family, some members of which were engaged in the Gunpowder plot." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Treschome Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Tresham, Treysham, Trasham, Traisham, Treasham and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Treschome or a variant listed above: Casper Treschum who arrived in Philadelphia in 1753.
