The surname of TREEN was a locational name 'the dweller beside the trees' from residence nearby. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Early records of the name mention Henry en le Tres, 1327, County Derbyshire. Johannes del Trees of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Later instances of the name include William Leever and Elizabeth Tree were married at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in the year 1583. John Barnaby and Elizabeth Tree were married at St. George's. Hanover Square, London in the year 1756. Almost every city, town or village extant in the Middle Ages has served to name one or more families. While a man lived in a town or village he would not be known by its name, as that would be no means of identification - all in the village would be so named. But when a man left his birthplace or village where he had been known and went elsewhere, people would likely refer to him by the name of his former residence or by the name of the land which he owned. Some had the name of a manor or village because they were lords of that place and owned it, but the majority descend from vassals of freeman who once had lived there. A notable member of the name was Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree (1853-1917) the English actor manager, half brother of Sir Max Beerbohm, born in London. After a commercial education in Germany, he took to the stage and scored his first success as Spalding in 'The Private Secretary'. In 1887 he took over the Haymarket Theatre until in 1897, with the box office success of 'Trilby' he built 'His Majesty's Theatre'. Most of the European surnames were formed in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The process had started somewhat earlier and had continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the tenth and eleventh centuries people did not have surnames, whereas by the fifteenth century most of the population had acquired a second name. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884.
