Werne Trelowarth - 1585
The following person appears on page 1 of Treloar History Book 1522 - 2004
0001: Werne (Wearne) TRELOWARTH was born about 1532 in Wendron, CON and was buried on 6 Mar 1585 in Wendron, CON. A respected researcher Edward MARTIN, considers that Wearne, who was described in the 1569 Muster as an able Billman, with a bill, is in fact the father of Robert and the main ancestor of the later Treloar families. He believes also that some of the children assigned by Orson Treloar to Robert were children of Wearne. I have therefore made some changes to the origins of the family. I agree with his logic, which includes the fact that in the records none of the children assigned by Orson to Robert had a son named Robert. However, each of Robert and John, had a son named Wearne. Part of the reasoning is that although there is a 30-year difference between the marriages of Robert and Bennet (also known as Benedict), it is possible that they were brothers. Robert could have married young and Bennet the youngest at an older age, after having cared for ageing parents. At present there is no way of knowing for certain what the relationship was, but the family group was quite small in the 16th and early 17th century and therefore the relationship is likely to have been close. The early records also show that other earlier generations had the names Thomas and Ralph in them and Bennet had sons with those names. It is possible that Wearne's father was Ralph Trelowarth who appeared in the Valuation and Muster at Wendron in 1522 and shown as having 12 pounds in goods and was armed with a bill, jack and sallet. Ralph was also in the Lay Subsidy at Wendron in 1524 with same valuation. A Ralph also appeared in the Muster of Tinners at Wendron in 1535, armed with a bill. Raw or Ralph was also listed in the 1543 Lay Subsidy Roll in 1543 but not in Muster of 1569. A John appeared in 1522 in Wendron, and a Thomas at Helston same year. The name Ralph re-appeared in later generations.
Wearne had the following children:
i. 0002: Robert TRELOWERTH (Trelowarth) born about 1552 in Wendron, CON and died before 1626, Wendron, CON. Living 1573 and 1588.
ii. 0003: Betericae (Beatrice) TRELOAWARTH was born about 1567 in Wendron, CON.
iii. 0004: John TRELOWARTH was born about 1570 in Wendron, CON, died in Nov 1614 in Wendron, CON, about age 44, and was buried on 6 Nov 1614 in Wendron,
iv. 0005: Benedict TRELOWARTH was born about 1581 in Wendron, CON and died on 1 Jul 1628 in Wendron, CON, about age 47.
