Apart from scattered references to him in the Dartmouth records for the period 1578-95,1 nothing has been ascertained about this MP, who may or may not be connected with the John Trehane of Trehane, Cornwall.2 He was almost certainly one of the lesser Dartmouth merchants, for his fellow-Member in 1601 and both Members in 1604 were local men.
