|The Trevanion in Australia. Although she was registered in London her name points to a Cornish connection...|
"'By Tre, and Pol and Pen,
You shall know the Cornish Men'
These three names are the Dictionary of such surnames that are originally Cornish; and though Nouns in sence I may fitly term them propositions.
1. Tre signifies a Town, Hence Tre-fry, Tre-laveney, Tre-Vanion &c.
2. Pol signifies an Head, Hence Pol-wheel.
3. Pen signifies a Top, Hence Pentire, Pen-rose, Pen-kevil &c."
[I am uncertain if Ray is referring to surnames or to places here - many are both. Given the context I think they are surnames]
