The Trefry surname does have different spellings. The main reason for this (my opinion) is the lack of education in our ancestors. A lot of times, names were spelled like they were pronounced and sometimes they were not pronounced correctly. So the spelling depended on the degree of writing skills for the times.
An example is Michael Trefry (Salem, Mass. in the 1800's) who would not answer to his name during a court hearing because they didn't pronounce it correctly.
Also, some family member didn't want to be connected for reasons like family/sibling fueds, so they changed the spelling of their name slightly.
