Early Origins of the Tunis family


The surname Tunis was first found in Northumberland where the first record of the family was listed as John filius Tunnoc in 1106 in Hodgson's History of Northumberland. The family "remains as Tunnock in that district still." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
Hodgson's History of Northumberland also lists William filius Tunnok as residing there in 1250.

Further to the north in the same era, "William Tunnoc witnessed a charter by William de Horuirden to the Abbey of Kelso between 1160-1200, and c. 1237 Adam Tunnoc witnessed a charter of resignation of land in Kelso. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
