Trivett History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Trivett family

The surname Trivett was first found in Somerset where one of the first records of the family was found in the year 1206 when Hugh Truet was recorded with estates in that shire.

Nicholas Trivet or Trevet (1258?-1328), was an early English historian, "the son of sir Thomas Trevet (d. 1283), who, according to Leland, was of a Norfolk family; but more probably the Trevets were connected with Somerset. Thomas Trevet was a justice itinerant for Dorset and the neighbouring counties from 1268 to 1271. When Norwich Cathedral was burnt by rioters in August 1272, Trevet was sent to try the malefactors. " [1]

Sir Thomas Trivet (d. 1388), was an English soldier, "a member of a Somerset family, to which Nicholas Trivet, the historian, and his father, Sir Thomas Trivet, the judge, probably belonged. A Thomas Trivet held lands at Chilton Tryvet, Otterhampton, and North Petherton, Somerset, in 1316. Sir Thomas Trivet was perhaps son of the John Trivet who represented Somerset in the parliament of January 1348. " [1]
