I am a descendant of Keverne (aka Henerie) Tregear b. 1585 in Cornwall. Where, I'm not sure. He married Margaret ? b.1586 also in Cornwall. Keverne's son, James b. 1626 in St Just married Jane Warne. Their son Richard Trigger was born in Chulmleigh Devon in 1665. From there on my research leads me to Devon. Does any member know the history of the name Tregear? I was told that two brothers Tregear arrived in Cornwall from Normandy round about the time of William the Conquerer. I also learned from the Patronymica Cornu - Brittanica that the Tregeares came from Tregeare in the Parish of Crowan where the family were resident as late as 1782. Richard Tregeare was sheriff of the county in 1704. It also tells me that Tregeare means 'the green or fruitful place'. I am hoping to come to Cornwall for a holiday next May/June and I am just wanting to come forearmed with as much information about the Tregeares as I can. Thank you. Fingers crossed.
