Where did the English Trivino family come from? What is the English Trivino family crest and coat of arms? When did the Trivino family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Trivino family history?

Cornwall, one of the original six "Celtic nations" is the homeland to the surname Trivino. A revival of the Cornish language which began in the 9th century AD has begun. No doubt this was the language spoken by distant forebears of the Trivino family. Though surnames became common during medieval times, English people were formerly known only by a single name. The way in which hereditary surnames were adopted in medieval England is fascinating. Many Cornish surnames appear to be topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees, many are actually habitation surnames. The name Trivino is a local type of surname and the Trivino family lived in Cornwall, at the manor of Trevanion.

Cornish surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The official court languages, which were Latin and French, were also influential on the spelling of a surname. Since the spelling of surnames was rarely consistent in medieval times, and scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings of their surname in the ancient chronicles. Moreover, a large number of foreign names were brought into England, which accelerated and accentuated the alterations to the spelling of various surnames. Lastly, spelling variations often resulted from the linguistic differences between the people of Cornwall and the rest of England. The Cornish spoke a unique Brythonic Celtic language which was first recorded in written documents during the 10th century. However, they became increasingly Anglicized, and Cornish became extinct as a spoken language in 1777, although it has been revived by Cornish patriots in the modern era. The name has been spelled Trevanion, Treavanion and others.

First found in Cornwall where they held a family seat at Trevanion. While the first records of the surname were from this area, we must look into Wales to understand the meaning of the word "trevanion, " for it is there that the word translates to "the meeting of streams."
