Trewern – 'Settlement at the alder-tree marsh'. Many early forms have Old English alra, genitive plural of alor, and tün, matched by Welsh tref and gwern.
Alretone 1086 was long misidentified with Cause, Shropshire, the site of a large castle and Lordship which reached into Montgomeryshire as far as the river Severn.
