Trewinner Early Origins



The surname Trewinner was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Trewinnard in the parish of St Erth. Cornwall was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany and Wales than to England.
