Re: John Cossy Trewin (M) Selina Trewin
I think the best source of information would be through Eric Gelling as he has taken Tony's information and compiled it in his document. I will ask him if he can send you a copy.
I don't know how much you know of the Trewin family history; we originated in the area of North Cornwall between Boscastle and Bude. Our oldest direct known common relative is John Trewin of St. Gennys, who died in Week Saint Mary in 1606. You And I are both descended from George Trewin (also spelled Treweene) and Agnes Mildren of Week Saint Mary: I am a descendant of their son John (1696-1771) and you and Tony Hill are dscendants of John's brother Thomas (1702-1774). He moved to Kilkhampton and married Joan Johns whereas my ancestors stayed in Week Saint Mary until emmigrating in 1850. During the 1840's there was a great agricultural failure in this region 'coinciding with the great Irish famine)and almost a third of the population emmigrated with assistance of the various church groups. Our families were members of a Methodist sect known as The Bible Christians who organised ships going to both Canada and Australia. My family went to Canada and your's to Australia.
Tony Hill IS related to you, but from your Trewin side, not your father's(but who knows...maybe from both families?) He is also a descendent of John Cossy Trewin as follows:

'I descend from John Cossy and Selina Trewin( number 109 on tree), through their daughter Sophia, who married Simon Jory..their daughter Pearl, 1900-1966 married Vivian Rowland Hill 1987-1964, and had son Graham Rowand Hill 1933-1980 who was my father...'
I will attempt to get you the master PDF document although much information is stiil to be compiled into it...including my own branch. Can you send me an email to trewinb at hotmail.com (leaving out the spaces and using the ambersand of course) and I will reply with the required documents attached.
Good to hear from another distant cousin,
