About Sir George Trevelyan, 3rd Baronet
The Trevilian, later Trevelyan Baronetcy, of Nettlecombe in the County of Somerset, was created in the Baronetage of England on 24 January 1662 for George Trevilian. He was the son and namesake of George Trevilian, a member of the gentry and supporter of the Royalist cause in the Civil War. The family derived its surname (which is pronounced "Trevillian") from Trevelyan in the parish of St Veep, Cornwall. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Somerset and Minehead. He changed the spelling of the family surname to Trevelyan. The fourth Baronet was Member of Parliament for Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Somerset. The eighth Baronet served as High Sheriff of Cornwall from 1906 to 1907. The presumed tenth Baronet never successfully proved his succession and was never on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. Likewise, as of 13 June 2007 the presumed eleventh and present Baronet has not successfully proven his succession and is consequently not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1976.
