Toit Early Origins



The surname Toit was first found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat, some say, before the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 A.D. Conjecturally, they are descended from one of the earliest records of a formal name when a grant was made by Wulfhere, King of the Mercians in 674. Included as his witnesses to the grant was Bishop Totta, the second most senior ecclesiastic in his kingdom. Evidence of the age of this surname is endorsed by the absolute simplicity of the Coat of Arms of the family.
