Thank you Yvonne. I will try to supply you with my supporting data using some of what you last sent me. I only hope this is not too long (and detailed) a reply.

"Henry Trevaskis married Jane Simons on July 23, 1775 at St. Erth, and their son Henry was born Aug 18 1776."

Below is the Henry (son of Henry & Jane), baptized August 18, 1776 (1851 census year – 76 yrs. = 1775)

"In the Gwinnear census of 1851, film 221070 Reawla Lane there was a John Trevaskis aged 36, tin miner, married to Frances 38 years born St Erth. They had children John 12, Elizabeth 9 (this is Elizabeth Ann Trevaskis, my husband’s great-grandmother, that married Edward John Tremelling; see below) Ann 8, Thomas 5, Jane 3, Eliz 1 and Emma 1 month. The first 2 chn were born at St. Erth, next 2 at Phillack, and last three at Gwinear."

       Birth:        02 SEP 1841 (this ties to the census records in the U.S.)        

       Christening:        01 NOV 1846        Saint Erth, Cornwall, England

       Father:        JOHN TREVASKIS        
       Mother:        FRANCES        

And from our research when we were in England:

When we looked for the marriages in Gwiniar Parish for the year 1865 we found:

DATE              NAMES                     PROFESSION              FATHER              PROFESSION

JUNE 10,1865       EDWARD TREMELLING       MINER                     WILLIAM       MINER
              ELIZABETH TREVASKIS                            JOHN              MINER

And I also found in my research on the Latter-day Saints Intn'l Gen Index

       Christening:        About 1845        Gwinear,Cornwall, , , England

       Spouse:        EDWARD TREMELLING        
       Marriage:        About 1862        Gwinear,Cornwall, , , England

"The information . . . has been very thoroughly researched and is printed in an excellent book called Trevasks - The Cornish Connection . . . "

We have also gotten info from researchers, but it was some time back. What we have are pages (copies) of documentation from the booklet entitled “Trevaskis - - Directory of a Surname” by Allan Edward Trevaskis USA, and Robert James Trevaskis, Australia. The distant relative who put our copies together felt that my husband’s Elizabeth Ann was the daughter of Edwin Trevaskis and Lavinia (Richards). Edwin’s 2nd great-grandfather was Samuel Trevaskis, born ~1667 and married to Mary Lowry. I have a smaller Family Tree file of this family. What we were given by the relative is incorrect since the Elizabeth born to Edwin and Lavinia was born in 1847 and she would have been too young, besides according to the marriage record her father was a John. We even have a certified copy of a birth certificate for that Elizabeth. So I have been trying my best to correct this family assumption.

Thank you again, for all of your efforts; what you gave did help.       Sincerely, Karen
