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

McRisdeearde Early Origins



The surname McRisdeearde 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 Great Migration



In the mid-19th century, Ireland experienced one of the worst periods in its entire history. During this decade in order to ease the pressure of the soil, which was actually depleted by the effects of the previous years' grain crops, landowners forced tenant farmers and peasants onto tiny plots of land that barely provided the basic sustenance a family required. Conditions were worsened, though, by the population of the country, which was growing fast to roughly eight million. So when the Great Potato Famine of the mid-1840s hit, starvation and diseases decimated the population. Thousands of Irish families left the country for British North America and the United States. The new immigrants were often accommodated either in the opening western frontiers or as cheap unskilled labor in the established centers. In early passenger and immigration lists there are many immigrants bearing the name McRisdeearde: James Tuite who landed in Pennsylvania in 1856; James Tute settled in Virginia in 1652.
