According to my notes made some 15 years ago (!) Eleanor Trelawny was the younger daughter of Edward Trelawny [1762-1807] and Jane (nee Woollcombe) of Coldrinick, Cornwall. She was baptized 4th May 1798. On 29th March 1837, she married Christopher McAdam whose grandfather, John Loudon McAdam (1756-1836) was the inventor of the road-making process, McAdamization, which has given us the word ‘tarmac.’ [see ODNB] She died 20th March 1852, and had three children Ellen Jane McAdam, Agnes Henrietta McAdam and Emily Darrell Louisa McAdam ('Darell/Dayrell' being an ancestral name on her father's side).
