Hi there, I think I may (should) be able to help you with this one.
From:- 'A Handbook of CORNISH SURNAMES' (Enlarged Edition) - G. Pawley White
TREWHELLA - Possibly from tre - ughella: highest homestead. Found in West Cornwall & Mid Cornwall. Place names Trewhella, St. Hilary; Trewhela, St. Enoder.
TREWOLLA - Possibly from tre - (g)wallow: homestead by ramparts. Place name Trewolla, Gorran and Constantine
There is, apparently, another place called 'Trewhella' in Cury Parish. I have never seen it but recall finding a reference to it on a couple of old maps I have also references to recently whilst searching the web for further information.
One last thing - the 'possible' meaning of TREWHELLA as shown above may be quite correct as it certainly matches the location of 'Trewhella Farm' in St Hilary Parish. This farm seems to be one of the 'highest' located in the area.

BTW - After finishing his Rugby League career David apparently got into the 'fashion industry' - BIKINIS I believe - I have a copy here (somewhere) of the 'Australasian Post' Magazine with photos of David and a couple of (hmmm - very nice) young ladies in their swimwear.
