Trethewy is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Trethewy family lived in Cornwall, at the village of Tewardevi, from which their name is derived.

Trethewy Early Origins



The surname Trethewy was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat from early times. There is also some evidence to believe that they were descended from Richard of Trethewey, a Norman knight, who held this village from the Count of Mortaine during the Norman occupation as recorded in the Domesday Book taken in 1086.

Trethewy Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Trethewy family name include Trethewey, Trethewy, Trethevy, Threthaway, Treadaway and many more.
