I have been researching my ancestry (I live in the USA, California) and it has lead me to Cornwall! I'm a little stuck though, supposedly I had an ancestor who was born around 1640 in Trony? I can't seem to find any references to a place called Trony. His name was Stephen Crego and his father's name was Eben, but I haven't been able to get any other details about Pop.

Anyone by any chance have any idea what Trony, Cornwall might be? If it is a misspelling, any ideas?

Thanks all!

Hi npm, it could possibly be Tregony which is between Truro and St Austell.

Ah! That might well be it if someone left off the "eg". Thank you so much, I'll see if that helps my searching.

Our immigrant ancestor Stephen Crego [d. 12/7/1690] was likely the Stephen Cregaw son of Stephen and Margery baptized at the Church of St. Just in Roseland 16 Aug 1640.

"Eben" is a name that has lingered for a century as this immigrant ancestor's father. It has been repeated many times, but no one has EVER given a shred of evidence for its origins.

Roy Crego's A Selective History of the Crego Family is a good source for early Cregos.

How far back can you go? I can usually make some connection if you can get back a few generations.

A Harrison Crego is nearing the completion of a large work on the Cregos. I haven't seen it yet.

Ah! Thanks Paul, I'm very new to all this. I got stuck on Stephen. I will look for Roy Crego's work. I wonder if you know of my Mother, Pauline Crego Milligan? Now my Mom's grandfather was named George Harrison Crego, looks like the name is getting handed down. :p
