TREGEAR, Vincent. Truro, Cornwall 1787 — Haslar, Hampshire 24.1.1851. Britishman in India. Son of Henry Tr. and Elizabeth Doyle. In 1836 elected Honorary Member of A.S.B. One source seems to indicate a connection with Royal Navy. Married 1810 Catherine Sibyl Hodgkinson, seven children.
Another possibility would be his son, Vincent Tregear (England 4.4.1809 — Meerut 10.5.1857) who also served in India (as did some other descendants of the first VT) and was Principal of Bareilly College, but he seems rather young. He was married with Elizabeth Hannah Seely and had nine children. Shot in Meerut.
Publications: wrote on archaeology and zoology in the JASB 3-11, 1834-42.
