BP1934 reports that this family was in possession of Trevelyan (Trevelien or Trevillion) prior to the Conquest.

  A. Thomas Trevelyan (a 1359)
  i. Baldwin Trevelyan (a 1420)
  a. Henry Trevelyan of Trevellion the first mentioned by BP1934
  BP1934 shows one wife for Henry, Alice, dau of Sir John Botreaux, identifying her as grandmother of Sir John (missing out a generation). Vivian shows that he married twice as follows:
m1. Alice Trencreek (dau of John Trencreek by Margaret)
  (1) Thomas Trevelyan
  m. Lucy
  (A) Sir John Trevelyan of Nettlecombe (Somerset) (d 1494, MP, Sheriff or Escheator of Cornwall)
