The Trevere family name comes from the name of either of the Welsh settlements called Trevor in Denbigh and Anglesey. As such, the surname Trevere belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Trevere Early Origins



The surname Trevere was first found in Herefordshire, where Tudor Trevor was Lord of Hereford, Wittington, and both Maelors, founder of the Tribe of the Marches. He was son of Ynyr Ap Cadforch, Lord of both Maelors in Powys, a Baron of Powys. Trevor Hall is a large grade mansion standing in 85 acres (35 hectares) of parkland at Trevor, near Llangollen, Denbighshire, Wales. The estate has been in the family since medieval times and was at one time the home of Bishop John Trevor (died 1357.)

Trevere Spelling Variations



Welsh surnames are relatively few in number, but they have an inordinately large number of spelling variations. There are many factors that explain the preponderance of Welsh variants, but the earliest is found during the Middle Ages when Welsh surnames came into use. Scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, which often resulted in a single person's name being inconsistently recorded over his lifetime. The transliteration of Welsh names into English also accounts for many of the spelling variations: the unique Brythonic Celtic language of the Welsh had many sounds the English language was incapable of accurately reproducing. It was also common for members of a same surname to change their names slightly, in order to signify a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even patriotic affiliations. For all of these reasons, the many spelling variations of particular Welsh names are very important. The surname Trevere has occasionally been spelled Trevor, Trefor and others.

The Great Migration



In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many people from Wales joined the general migration to North America in search of land, work, and freedom. These immigrants greatly contributed to the rapid development of the new nations of Canada and the United States. They also added a rich and lasting cultural heritage to their newly adopted societies. Investigation of immigration and passenger lists has revealed a number of people bearing the name Trevere: Samuel Trevor, who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1795; followed by Caleb in 1798; William Trevore settled in Massachusetts in 1620; Thomas Trevors settled in Maryland in 1766..
