A problem arises here in the parish records. As only the f
ather Williamis named as a parent it is impossible to distinguish this John Trewavasfrom the John Trewavas, son of William Trewavas and Anne Yeaman.(Grandson of Kevern) who was baptised in 1758 in the same parish. Howeverit is worthy of note that their mothers were sisters and they have acommon gt. grandfather, George Trewavas. Due to a lack of other recordsyou must choose for yourselves which line to connect to the subsequentgenerations that followed.
This tree reflects the placement of the children of both Johns as perMadeleine Mitchell Fox who personally viewed all Trewavas entries for thedistrict in the original Registers..
Only copies of wills and testaments are left to hopefully give somepointers as to which children belong to each respective John Trewavas ifsuch documents still exist.
It is worth noting that Family Historian Geoff Mann has placed theseJohns in the reverse order to Madeleine, based on what scanty morsels ofinformation are available, ie the naming of children after theirgrandparents. The compiler considers this quite a valid line of reasoningand will reallocate the 2 Johns [to respective parents] if any otherinformation comes to light to indicate this is correct.
