About us

July 2020

The Trethewy One-Name Study now has a new website which you can find at which is linked to this Family Tree Trethewy DNA Project.

April 2018

Results from new project members have resulted in some very interesting developments. Some previously accepted family trees will need to be reviewed and the sources re-examined. This is a very exciting challenge, particularly given the frequency of the names Richard, Thomas, William and John in so many of the Trethewey families!

June 2016

Following the death of Alan Kent in 2015, the Trethewy Society has now been taken on by Raymond Trethewey and Sally Whiffing. Raymond has become a co-administrator of the Trethewey DNA Project, and the Trethewy One-Name Study continues to be registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies.

March 2013

This project was set up in July 2012.  The late Alan Kent (who ran the Trethewy Society) became a collaborator with this project in March 2013, which enabled this project to display the Guild of One-Name Studies logo.

The first results can now be seen. It would be particularly interesting to get results back from some of the other main family groups, which will help to confirm paper records and perhaps establish links between different groups.

Please do consider joining the Trethewey DNA Project. The more people who take part, the better the chances of finding matches and adding to our knowledge of the Trethewey family.

Do feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
