The House of Commons of England was the lower house of the Parliament of England from its development in the 14th century to the union of England and Scotland in 1707, when it was replaced by the House of Commons of Great Britain. In 1801, with the union of Great Britain and Ireland, that house was in turn replaced by the House of Commons of the United Kingdom.

Life

Trevor was the son of Sir Thomas Trevor of Trevalyn Denbighs, Lord Baron of the Exchequer. He was auditor for Duchy of Lancaster in 1640, [1] In November 1640, he was returned as Member of Parliament for Monmouth in the Long Parliament. [2] There was a double return with William Watkins which was not resolved immediately. When some of the voters petitioned against the result, his opponent was forced to stop sitting as an MP until the dispute could be resolved. Meanwhile, he was created a baronet (of Enfield in Middlesex) on 11 August 1641. [1] His election was finally declared void in November 1644. By this time, Parliament had suspended by-elections to fill vacancies because of the Civil War, and when they resumed Trevor was instead elected MP for Tregony in 1647. He was, however, excluded from the Commons in Pride's Purge the following December. [1]

Sir Thomas Trevor was an English lawyer, judge and Member of Parliament, most notable for having delivered the judgment against John Hampden in the Ship Money case.

Monmouth Boroughs was a parliamentary constituency consisting of several towns in Monmouthshire. It returned one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons of the Parliaments of England, Great Britain, and finally the United Kingdom; until 1832 the constituency was known simply as Monmouth, though it included other "contributory boroughs".

Long Parliament English Parliament which lasted from 1640 until 1660

The Long Parliament was an English Parliament which lasted from 1640 until 1660. It followed the fiasco of the Short Parliament which had convened for only three weeks during the spring of 1640, and which in turn had followed an 11-year parliamentary absence. In September 1640, King Charles I issued writs summoning a parliament to convene on 3 November 1640. He intended it to pass financial bills, a step made necessary by the costs of the Bishops' Wars in Scotland. The Long Parliament received its name from the fact that, by Act of Parliament, it stipulated it could be dissolved only with agreement of the members; and, those members did not agree to its dissolution until 16 March 1660, after the English Civil War and near the close of the Interregnum.

After the Restoration, Trevor was made a Knight of the Bath at the coronation of Charles II. He died in February 1676. [1]

Order of the Bath Series of awards of an order of chivalry of the United Kingdom

The Most Honourable Order of the Bath is a British order of chivalry founded by George I on 18 May 1725. The name derives from the elaborate medieval ceremony for appointing a knight, which involved bathing as one of its elements. The knights so created were known as "Knights of the Bath". George I "erected the Knights of the Bath into a regular Military Order". He did not revive the Order of the Bath, since it had never previously existed as an Order, in the sense of a body of knights who were governed by a set of statutes and whose numbers were replenished when vacancies occurred.

Charles II of England King of England, Scotland and Ireland

Charles II was king of England, Scotland, and Ireland. He was king of Scotland from 1649 until his deposition in 1651, and king of England, Scotland and Ireland from the 1660 Restoration of the monarchy until his death.

Family

Trevor married firstly Anne Jenner daughter of Robert Jenner of London and secondly Mary, daughter of Samuel Hortrey of Kew. He had no children and the baronetcy became extinct on his death. [1] His estates passed to Sir Charles Wheler, grandson of Mary, a sister of Sir Thomas Trevor's father. [3]
