Early Origins of the Treviso family
The surname Treviso was first found in Cornwall
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor of Crochadon. Cornwall
was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany
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
John de Trevisa (1326-1412), was a Cornish author, born at Crocadon in St. Mellion, near Saltash, Cornwall, and was a Fellow of Exeter College, Oxford, from 1362 to 1369. CITATION[CLOSE]
