Hi, I'm taking advantage of the Cornish rainy season to catch up on some research. I was born and live in Cornwall although spent most of my life elsewhere! My own surname is Lovelock but it's my fathers Cornish Line I'm researching. His mother was an Ivey and the next generations back included Pearce and Trewhella (in fact those were his two Christian names). I'm fortunate on the Ivey side to have a copy of the entries Henry and Mary Susan's Family bible plus some earlier notes. Currently grappling with some Rogers issues.

I will be able to help with the Trewhella side of things and can probably offer a little help with each of the other names as well. If you can give me an outline of your Trewhella connections it will give me an idea of where I need to concentrate my attention.
Two connections: I have a cousin whose wife is a descendant of Alfred Pearce Ivey whose son, Alfred Wearn Ivey, moved to Canada with descendants eventually settling in Washington, USA. Wearne Ivey and Alice Pearce's daughter, Harriet Pearce Ivey, married my 3rd cousin 4x removed, Richard Taylor. He was the son of John Taylor and Margaret Gammon, and his birth was registered in the first quarter of 1842. Born in Crowan. I will be curious to know about the Trewhella conection.
My paternal Grandmother was Annie Jane Ivey, Brother of Alfred Pearce Ivey. Annie's parents were Henry Ivey and Mary Susan Rogers married in St Erth 1830. I am fairly certain that Mary's parents were James Rogers (one of many!) and Jane Trewhella married 1820 in St Erth, and that Jane's parents were Thomas Trewhella and Mary Edwards married 1776 in St Hilary. I haven't worked any further than that with the Trewhellas so far (the searches get difficult with the spelling variations).
On the Ivey side I have gone just about as far as it's possible to go, 8 generations back to John Ivye who married Johana Batler 1640 in Wendron (and signed - or rather marked - the protestation return at Wendron the following year).
The other line I might have a go at (because it was one of my father's Christian names) is Pearce. The parents of Annie's father Henry were Wearn Ivey and Alice Pearce married 1816 in Illogan, and I think her parents were John Pearce and Alice Dunstone married 1792 in Illogan. That's where I have stopped for the time being.

Ah yes, I do have Pearce Trewhella Lovelock in my database and yes his grandparents were Henry Ivey and Mary Susan Rogers. The eldest child of Henry and Susan was William Trewhella Ivey.
The earliest I have tracked this Ivey family to is the marriage of Thomas Ivey and Mary Sampson at Breage in 1790 but on the Pearce side I have so far not gone beyond the marriage of Alice in 1816 although I do know she was born some time around 1798.
Mary Susan Rogers was born at St Erth about 1829 and baptised at St Erth 13th February 1835 to James Rogers and Jane Trewhella who married at St Erth in 1820. Jane Trewhella was born about 1789 at Ludgvan to Thomas Trewhella and Mary Edwards who married at St Hilary in 1776. Thomas Trewhella was the first of three children to Thomas Trewhella (Trewheela in the PR) and Catherine Barns who married at Perranuthnoe in 1754.
This last Thomas Trewhella is the mystery at the moment but I suspect he belongs either 1. he could be a son of Matthew Trewhella and Hannah Thomas who married at Camborne in 1716 or 2. he may be the Thomas baptised at Crowan in 1723 to John and Mary (maiden name not recorded) Trewhela. In either scenario I believe his family belongs to Charles Trewheelah and Margery Luke who married at Camborne in 1686.
The very early part of this family is still very much a mystery with only scattered records available but I do hope to piece more of it together eventually.
I wasn't expecting this when I made my earlier post. Seadog, I, too, am a descendant of Charles and Margery. I currently have Thomas linked to Matthew and Hannah but not that is not definite. However, I do have 5 DNA matches (possibly one or two more) to descendants of Thomas Trewhella and Catherine Barnes.
