Trelawny was named after Sir William Trelawny, a former Governor of the colony who died in Jamaica in 1772. It has an area of approximately 338 1/4 square miles and has been ranked among the smallest of the parishes in terms of population. The parish of Trelawny was created in 1774 by a division of the parish of St. James. Its capital was first located at Martha Brae, an inland town, which bore the name as the Martha Brea River.
