Twenty seven years ago my brother began looking for relatives in England.  Our grandfather immigrated here in the early 1900s when he was still a teenager and we have had no contact with family in England so he decided to search.  Shortly after that we traveled to Cornwall to rekindle family relations.  Since we have a cosmopolitan family, our mother being from Germany and our father’s father being from Cornwall, we have always had one foot in “The Old World”.

I began the Trethowan Surname Page almost 20 years ago.  That project had grown considerably to the point that I had to create the domain “Trethowan.org.”  Since its’ inception, Trethowan.org has become a portal for Trethowans around the world.  Currently I am working on a GED file that should link all known descendents to the Two main branches of the Trethowan family lines.  All Trethowans are invited to join the project.

Since I originally posted this a person contacted me from England.  She had conducted an extensive research project into the Trethowan lineage.  Much of the information had already been in my research, but lacked context.  There were many questions regarding the data that didn’t make sense up until she forwarded me her work.  As soon as I aquire permission to do so, I will offer this work here and on the Trethowan Surname Page.
