Editor Yarmouth Herald:
For more than 500 years the Treffreys have been among the prominent families of County Cornwall, in the south of England. Their principal seat was at Fowey, a seaport in that country, and the following extracts are taken from an interesting sketch of the place which appeared in the Christmas number of the Masonic Magazine for the year 1878:
"One of the most interesting and picturesque places in Cornwall (that most picturesque of Counties) is the ancient town of Fowey (originally spelt and still pronounced Foy) and yet it is a place which to the general tourist is utterly unknown.
"It is true that some of our yachting men have discovered that there is here one of the loveliest and safest land-locked harbours in England, and within the last few years the Duke and Duchess of Argyle, the Duke of Sutherland, the Earl of Boden, the Earl of Ducie, the Duke of Bedford, Baroness Burdett-Coutts, Lord Alfred Paget, Sir George Stukely, Baronet, Lord Crenmorne, Earl Beauchamp, Lord Penzane, the Marquis of Stafford, Baroness de Rothschild, the Earl of Gosford, and other distinguished people have visited Fowey in their yachts and gone away well pleased with their discovery of so charming a locality.....
"Entering Fowey Harbour from the sea, on your right are the great cliffs above Polruan, rising some 400 feet out of the sea in perpendicular height; and at the highest point, Black Bottle Head, presenting a bold and precipitous, not to say apitiless front to the sea.
"Polruan, which is just opposite to Fowey, is a queer, straggling village, which climbs up the side of a hill, parts of the by-streets being literally carved out of the rocks. On the summit of the hill, which dominates the little town or village, are the remains of St. Savior's Monastery, and further on an old Cornish cross over a
holy well, and the view from thence is very fine. On the top of the cliffs you can see, in fine weather, looking eastward, far beyond the Rame Head, round which one goes into Plymouth Sound to the Bolt Head and Tail, 50 miles off, and on this side of Dartmouth; whilst on the other side you look across westward to Point Neptune, St. Catharine's Head, with the old castle of the time of Henry VIII, (1509-1547) still
in fair preservation, beneath it, and the mausoleum at the top, ontaining the remains of the Hon. Mrs. Rashleigh (daughter of the 11th Lord Blantyre) and her husband, Brother Rashleigh, a well known Mason, and a member of an old Cornish family connected with Fowey for centuries past. .......
"The Parish Church is a very fine structure, built in the reign of Edward IV, (1461-1483) on the site of a much older edifice, and recently restored at the cost of $5000, raised through the exertions of the vicor, the Rev. H.N. Purcell, and brother, Rev. De Treffry, of Place. The monuments here to the memory of the Treffrys and
Rashleighs, principally Elizabethan, are very fine, and have been restored and painted by Dr. Drake, a descendant of the famous Sir Francis Drake, a well known Cornish genealogist.
"D. Drake, who is an accomplished scholar and antiquarian, and author as well as an artist, has added much interest to the church by painting the Shields, with arms of the ancient families connected with Fowey, and has published, amoungst other more important works, an interesting little history of St. Fimbarrus Church, containing an
account of the antiquities. St. Fimbarrus, a Colonial Bishop of the 6th century, is said to be buried here.
"So the genealogist traces the history of Fowey from the heraldic Shields containing the arms of the Plantagenets, Bohnns, Courtenays, Carews, Rashleighs, Treffrys, and other less known names of families connected with the place.
"In 1347 Fowey sent 47 ships and 770 men for the siege of Calais. Love, now a creek in Fowey, but then an independent port, sent 20 ships and 315 mariners to assist King Edward III, on this occasion; whilst London only furnished 25 ships and 662 mariners. This will give an idea of the importance of these western ports in these old days. The streets of Fowey are so narrow that in no place could two carriages pass one another, and in many places in the principal thorough fares, if one meets a vihicle of any sort, it is necessary to stand in a doorway and trust to Providence not to be run over. There are one or two quaint Elizabethan houses, with queer gables, latticed
heavy mullioned windows, and deep-carved barge-boards, dear to the atiquarian; and one fine old house, said to have been the town residence of the Rashleighs in the 14th or 15th century, still retains its beautiful old stone Gothic windows and doorways, and fine carved oak beams across the roof, ..........
"BUT THE MOST INTERESTING BUILDING IN FOWEY IS PLACE,(which is the old British for palace) a Gothic castellated residence of the 15th century, standing on an eminence above the church, in its own beautiful grounds, and the residence of agentleman of the old school, the Rev. Edward Treffry, D.C.L., a very worthy brother Mason, P.M. of the
Fowey Lodge, and a P.E.C. of the Restoronel Preceptory of Knights Templar of Tywardreath. There is a very beautiful porphyry hall at Place, itself alone worth coming many miles to see. The roof, walls and floor are all polished porphyry, and it is said that its value taking into consideration the labour as well as the cost of materials, is such
that if it were lined instead with the precious metals it could not have cost more. The Queen and Prince Consort in 1848, and the Prince and Princess of Wales subsequently, visited Fowey, and were hospitably entertained, of course, at Place. The Prince was very much struck with the porphyry hall, and said that he would like to build one like
it at Windsor, but that he could not afford it. A great carved high-backed chair, which was used by Queen Elizabeth when she visited the ..hen B.... ...xeter, and which was given to the la.....ner of Place by Bishop Phillipotts, was pointed out to Her Majasty,
who made a reverence or deep obeisance to it, and declined to sit in it, remarking that it was not royal etiquette to be seated in the chair of her ancestors.
"There are one or two interesting stained glass windows in Place, one of the peroid containing the Black Prince's badge. Here also is a portrait of Hugh Peters, Cromwell's chaplain, who married a Treffry, and who was executed for high treason.
"In 1457 King John of France sent a squadron of ships to burn down and ravage the town, in revenge for many victories obtained over the French by "the gallant men of Foyer" as they were called in the middle ..... sailed past the forts built in the ...... Richard III (1327-1377) and which are still standing, and came secretly in the dead of night
and burned the little town, whilst the inhabitants fled in terror from their enimies. They afterwards attacked Place, which was at that time fortified; and the then owner, Thomas Treffry, being absent, his wife, Dame Elizabeth Treffry, rallied the citizens around her, fought the French and drove them back to their ships; and her effigy, which was discovered some years since when restoring the castle, is now to be seen over a granite gateway under the Great Tower, with a record of her heroism,"
Epitaphs in Church at Fowey:
Here lyeth ye Body of Sir John Treffry, Knight,
William Treffry and Thomas Freffry, Esquires, Brethren,
Died in ye month of September ye sayd Sir John ye XVI yere (1501)
and ye sayd William ye XX ye Rayng of Kyng Henry ye VII (1505)
and ye sayd Thomas Treffry ye first yere of the Rayng of Kyng Henry the
Here in this chancell doth ly
Known by name of John Treffry,
Being made and born to dye
So must thou driend as well as I.
Therefore good works be sure to try
But chiefly Love and Charity.
And still on them with Faith rely
To be happy eternally.
How the name Treffry is pronounced in Fowey now I do not know. The Treffrys are supposed to have come into England originally from the Channel Islands, and if the name is French the accent would be on the last syllable, as in common in French names with two syllables and ending with "y".
The late Judge Story (a native of Marblehead) tells this story: "Once when trying a case in Boston, the clerk called 'Michael Treffry', one of the jury. There was no answer, and the clerk again called 'Michael Treffry', and still no answer. 'It is strange' said
the clerk, ' I saw that man here not two minutes ago.' 'Where does he come from?' asked the Judge. 'Marblehead, your honor.,' said the clerk, handing the list to the Judge. 'Call Mike Trevye,' said the Judge, and the clerk called "Mike Trevye.' 'Here', answered a ruff voice. 'Why did you not answer before?' said the clerk, and the juryman said, 'My name is Mike Trevye, as everone knows.'" Such, too, was the popular pronunciation in Chegogue 100 years ago.
Marblehead, Mass., was first settled about 1629. Says Hon. Samuel Roads, jr., the historian of that town: "From their manners and customs, but more especially from their dialect, it would seem that the early settlers were natives of Germany and Jersey." The name of Thomas Trefry first appears in the records there in 1661, but he may have
been there some years earlier. He had two sons, Thomas and James, and probably other children.
