The Trevetheck surname comes from one of the numerous places so named in Cornwall. As such, it is classed as a habitation surname denoting someone who came from Trevithick.

Trevetheck Early Origins



The surname Trevetheck was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Trevithick in St Columb Major and Minor. Cornwall was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany and Wales than to England. It was not until the 10th century that they submitted to the Saxon rule of England. Since then, their influence has moved east into Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
