Walter is my 14th great greandfather.

It is our Walter that many family members confuse with his cousin, also named Walter Trelawney. The cause of the confusion is understandable. The cousins had a grandfather who named 2 of his sons "John". And both sons had sons of their own and chose to name them Walter. Lovely family. I will attempt to straighten out the confusion. In order to prove one is not the other, I must also include the records of the other. Needless to say, this is not an easy task.

British Chancery Records, Vol. 5, p. 196, bundle 456 is a lawsuit against the widow of Walter Trelawny. Dates 1515 to 1518. Therefore, Walter died prior to 1515.
