TREVITHICK OF ST. ENODER

 

The will of William Trevethacke of St. Enoder, Cornwall, gentleman, dated 2 February 1657, leaves money to the poor of the parishes of St. Enoder and St. Eval and names among others his wife Frances, son William, daughter Thomasine, daughter Mary, daughter Grace, Christopher Trevethicke of London, taylor, and the testatorsís ďwelbeloved Freinds and AlyesĒ John Bawden, Samuel Gully and William Gully. A codicil of 7 July 1658 mentions William Trevethack of Padstow (probably Petrockstow) in Devon, clerk. The will was proved on 10 December 1659.[1]

 

Administration of the estate of Lewis Stribley of St. Wenn was granted on 8 November 1689 to William Trevithick of St. Enoder, during the minority of Lewisís son William Stribley,[2] confirming that the Mary Trevithick who married Lewis Stribley at St. Wenn in 1671 was the Mary Trevithick baptised at St. Enoder in 1651/52.

 

There are earlier Trevithicks recorded in the St. Enoder parish registers, including Gregory Trevithick and Katherine Hockin who were married in 1611.[3]
