Tre- (place name element)

Tre- is a place name element of Celtic origin meaning "hamlet, farmstead, estate", etc. which survives mainly in Wales and in the Southwest of England (almost exclusively in Cornwall). The manor of Trefusis was thus originally held before the Norman Conquest of 1066 by an Anglo-Saxon named "Fusis" or similar, thus "Farmstead of Fusis".
