Hi.My name is Sean Tresson.I havent been on this website in a few years but came accross your post and it caught my attention.I am the youngest of 11 children by Patrick Tresson of Dun Laoghaire (rip 2007) and Margaret ( o'toole of dalkey rip 1979).My grandfather,also Patrick Tresson originated from Blackrock,Dublin.He married nellie merigan and had 6 children.Patrick,Carmel,Connie,Roseline,Hubert and mary (who died in infancy)the reason I am contacting you is because we all still live around the ballybrack area from which you said Adelia Tresson lived and this is very interesting.We have tried to research the name as we are the only Tressons we can find in ireland are trying to piece together our history.So far all we know is the the name tresson in its present form pops up in a place called Cottage in Mayo.I think the name was Hubert Tresson.we found evidence that in the 1850 the family emigrated to america and canada with 2 sons.Family legend has it that the father and mother died and the young son hubert was sent back to ireland to live with aunts in blackrock.nothing is known of what happend to the other boy or if there were any more children.my uncle visited canada in the last few years and found a hubert tresson stud farm.the name hubert passes down through my family for many generations.it was my great grandfather hubert who was sent back to ireland to his aunts who went on to have my grandfather Patrick,who named his son hubert also.all of these are burried in deansgrange cemetary.the problem we have found in trying to research the name is the fact that there was so many clerical mistakes made on the likes of birth certs etc. the level of education in some clerical areas was low and mistakes in spelling were easy to spot.In one case a family member had a set of twins and the surnames of each child was spelled differently.one being Tresson and the other Treston.We have always been told it was a french name and a theory is that it was a french soldier who landed in mayo in 1798 rebellion whoo settled and married a local girl.but thats just one theory.I havent got the information in front of me so i am typing this from memory so i am sorry about lack of details.But there must be some connection with Adelia Tresson and my family.the surname is very rarely spelled correctly and the places and times are similar.if you can give any further information please do and hopefully i may be of some help to your search.

slan mo chara,

sean tresson

Surnames: Treston, Trestin, and Tresson
The Hubert you refer to appears to be a grandson of the Hubert Treston born 1803 (probobly in Mayo)and married to Rose Fullam 17th July 1824 in DunLaoghaire (refered to elsewhere on this message board). His youngest son Michael Treston (born 1849 & married to Ester Lynch 1881) emigrated as you indicate but to South America and is claimed to have returned, but no evidence of his death cert in Dublin. They registerered the birth of one son Hubert Tressin in 1886, whose marriage to Mary Roe on 7th Feb 1907 is recorded as Tresson. Hubert (1886) registered the birth of 12 childern in the names Treston, Trestin, and Tresson
The family at Cottage(Mayo) to which you refer has spelt their name Treston from at least the late 1600s to the current day. The family had moved from Roscommon into Mayo. There are records going back to 1585,& 1582 of Trostan and Tristan names in Roscommon which appears to be the orins for the Cottage Treston.
Hope this helps?

The only information I have on Mary Roe is that she was born 03 April 1887, and married Hubert on 7 Feb 1907 in the RC church in Blackrock, her first child was born May 1907. She died 22 April.
This branch of the Trestons Tressons in Dublin frequently appear to have been stone masons and plasterers and on occasions doing army service. In the 1911 census Hubert is recorded as a labourer.

Hi Sean,
I don't often check back in here but it's definitely very interesting about the alternative spellings. I have found a few references to who I believe are the people I'm looking for in Mayo and the Treston spelling was used. There were apparently some Huberts in that family as well, so it still looks like they're connected somehow, and there was at least some sort of Dublin connection with at least one member of the family serving in the Dublin police before returning to Mayo. I also believe the Adelia I am looking for may have also been known as Bridget. I don't know why this was the case, but I found a baptism record for an O'Reilly child where the parents were Laurence O'Reilly and Bridget Treston, and another where she is written as Bedilia Treston (which at least sounds like Adelia!). It did trigger something to me, though, my late grandmother used to refer to the other Adelia as Bridget and I never understood why. If her mother was also an Adelia known as Bridget, that would make at least a little bit of sense.

Hi Sean you will find any variations on the name, due to local accent & recorders from another country or even local With a local west of Ireland accent the name often comes out - Thruston Thristman Trustnon Tresnan Treston etc. when the person was not so literate & sometime even if they were. I am sure you have had some interesting spelling after giving you name over the phone etc? Regards mick tresnan
