Trevelyan was the second son of Sir George Trevelyan, 2nd Baronet. "Described as a 'rumpled, eccentric poet' . . . close to the Bloomsbury Group, who called him 'Bob Trevy'. He had a wide further range of social connections: George Santayana, Isaac Rosenberg, Bernard Berenson, Bertrand Russell, G. E. Moore, [and] E. M. Forster with whom he and Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson travelled to India in 1912." (Wikipedia) N. B.
