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.

Trevathan Early Origins



The surname Trevathan was first found in Cornwall. The origins of the name make it likely that the name emerged independently in the parishes of Budock, St. Eval, and Gwennap during the Middle Ages. The Trevathan family held a family seat at Cornwall for many centuries, owing its prominence to its many distinguished members.
