Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The Treffrys have been at Place, their ancient manor house at Fowey, for eight centuries. For much of that time they remained very much a local family in that part of Cornwall—Celtic country gentry, rooted to their acres. They had their share of moments of glory, as when Sir John Treffry served with the Black Prince at Crecy and on 26 August 1346 captured the Royal Banner of France and was dubbed Knight Banneret on the field of battle for his achievement and valour. Now, for all of them, and for the interest of many others not themselves Treffrys, the author has spent many years in patient research in record offices, libraries and genealogical societies, throughout Britain and America, tracing lines of descent and branches and also 'collecting everything she could find about the Treffry family'. Her researches have been remarkably productive and the results are a compelling and well-referenced family history. The book's appeal to Treffrys is obvious, but it will also interest West Country historians and family historians in general.”
