The surname MacRisdeerd came to Ireland with the Anglo- Norman invasion of the 12th century. The Gaelic form of the surname MacRisdeerd is de Tiúit.

MacRisdeerd Early Origins



The surname MacRisdeerd was first found in Norfolk, where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Thwaite near Erpingham in that shire. Originally of Le Thuit, Eure in the Canton of Les Adnelys, before the Norman Conquest in 1066, Ralph del Tuit was described as 'the man' of Berenger de Todeni, son of Duke Robert of Normandy. After the Conquest, Ralph acquired lands from the Abbott of Holme near Erpingham, lands which he called Tuit, recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Thwaite. However, the family also retained the name Tuite. In 1172 Risteárd de Tiúit (Richard La Tuite) was a member of Richard de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke's Irish invasion force. He built one of the largest Motte and Bailey settlements in Ireland at Granard in 1199 and rose to become Lord Chief Justice of Ireland.

The Great Migration



The Irish emigration during the late 18th and 19th century contributed to the melting pot of nationalities in North America, and the building of a whole new era of industry and commerce in what was seen as a rich, new land. Ireland's Great Potato Famine resulted in the worst economic and social conditions in the island's history. And in response to the hunger, disease, and poverty, during this decade the total number of emigrants to leave for North America rivaled all the previous years combined. Those from this decade that arrived on North American shores were not warmly welcomed by the established population, but they were vital to the rapid development of the industry, agriculture, and infrastructure of the infant nations of the United States and what would become Canada. Research into early immigration and passenger lists has shown many people bearing the name MacRisdeerd: James Tuite who landed in Pennsylvania in 1856; James Tute settled in Virginia in 1652.
