The current house was started by Phillip Hawkins in 1715, it was a rebuilding that was to take 4 decades and to be completed by his cousin Thomas Hawkins. It was Thomas who planted many of the fine trees of the 18th century garden. In 1904 George Horace Johnstone inherited Trewithen and over the next fifty years created much of the gardens we see today.
