Salusbury-Trelawny baronets

The Trelawny, later Salusbury-Trelawny Baronetcy, of Trelawny in the County of Cornwall, is a title in the Baronetage of England. It was created on 1 July 1628 for John Trelawny of Trelawny in the parish of Pelynt in Cornwall.[2] The family derived much of their political power from their patronage of the nearby pocket borough of East Looe.[3] The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for East Looe, Cornwall and Liskeard. The third Baronet was a clergyman and one of the Seven Bishops imprisoned by James II. The fourth Baronet represented West Looe, Liskeard and East Looe in the House of Commons. The fifth Baronet was Member of Parliament for East Looe. The sixth Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for West Looe and served as Governor of Jamaica. The eighth Baronet was Member of Parliament for East Cornwall 1832–1837 and Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall. In 1802 he assumed the additional surname of Salusbury. The ninth Baronet represented Tavistock and East Cornwall in Parliament.

John Trelawny, Charles Trelawny and Henry Trelawny, sons of the second Baronet and brothers of the third Baronet, all gained distinction in their own right. Edward Trelawny, younger son of Bishop Trelawny (3rd Bt), served as Governor of Jamaica 1738-52.
