The surname Thomis 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 Thomis was also created as a surname from pre-Norman English given names.

Early Origins of the Thomis family


The surname Thomis 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.
