My Great Great Grandfather was Thomas Treweek, born 27/10/1830 in Peranaworthal ( I think ??). He married 10/2/1855, Joanna Morcom (in Greenwith ??). they had 10 children , 6 daughters, followed by 4 sons, the youngest of which died in birth. The oldest son was Thomas Norman Treweek, my Great grandfather who was born 2/7/1866 in St. Gluvins. At some point, I think in the 1880s, Thomas & Joanna & most of the children, moved across to Swansea in South Wales - supposedly because the Cornish Tin mines were closing & to find work in the South Wales coal mines, - although I dont know whether this is fact or fable !! My grandfather - Edgar Norman, & father - Peter James were also born in Swansea although I'm a Londonner.
The route from Gwennap to Swansea was coincidently also taken by Captain James Henry Treweek - the one that then went to Amlwch, Angelsey in North wales & was quite famous in those parts. We keep wondering if there is a connection between his line & ours - although we've not found one so far, & in any case his move to Swansea was at the start of the 1800s
Going back to Thomas & Joanna, Thomas had an older sister born 29/10/1826 called Grace Louisa who married Nicolas Gerrans at Grenwithon 25/12/1850. Thomas also had 2 younger twin brothers called John & Joel baptised 22/9/1833. Not sure what happened to John, But Joel married Elizabeth Ann Blaney on 25/12/1854 ( Did everybody always get married on Xmas day ??). They had 5 children, Joel Tressider b 1855), Richard James (b 1856), Heny Charles (b1860), Olivia (b1863) & Jane (b 1865). Joel supposedly died in 1908. When I recently did an on line search of the 1901 census I couldnt find any of Joel, Elizabeth or any of their 5 children. So perhaps they emigrated, didnt fill in the form or my dates are completely wrong !!
Thomas, John , Joel & Grace Louisas father was Abraham Treweek who we think was born in 1780 & married Grace Tresider (b. 1806, died in 1842)on 9/2/1826. Abraham had a brother Thomas(b 1781 & married Margaret Hancock in 1799) & a sister Elizabeth (b1782). we think their parents were another Thomas & Elizabeth
Most of the above has been cobbled together from all over the place & maybe / (probably is !! ), riddled with errors
Any info that you might have that fills any of the gaps or corrects would be much appreciated
