The surname Thomasett is derived from a Medieval given name of biblical origin that was popular throughout Europe. In Britain, most instances of the name as a surname came with the Norman invasion however, it also likely that Thomasett was also created as a surname from pre-Norman English given names.

Thomasett Early Origins



The surname Thomasett was first found in Gloucestershire, Lincolnshire, and Hamptonshire where Thomas of Bayeux (1070-1100,) Bishop of Worcester and Archbishop of York, held land as listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. After the Norman invasion, Thomas became one of the most popular Christian names, and then in turn as a surname usage began to increase.
