Origins Available: Italian, Welsh


The origins of the ancient name Tomasso belong to that rich Celtic tradition that comes from Wales. This surname was derived from the Aramaic personal name Thomas, which means twin. Prior to the Norman Conquest, this name was rarely found, but by the 13th and 14th centuries, it became extremely common in Britain. The surname Tomasso features the patronymic suffix -son, which superseded other patronymic suffixes in popularity by the 14th century and was most common in the north of England.

Early Origins of the Tomasso family


The surname Tomasso was first found in Cheshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times before and after the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Tomasso Spelling Variations


Although there are not an extremely large number Welsh surnames, there are an inordinately large number of spelling variations of those surnames. This variety of spellings began almost immediately after the acceptance of surnames within Welsh society. As time progressed, these old Brythonic names were eventually were recorded in English. This process was problematic in that many of the highly inflected sounds of the native language of Wales could not be properly captured in English. Some families, however, did decide to modify their own names to indicate a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even a patriotic affiliation. The name Tomasso has seen various spelling variations: Thomason, Thomasson, Thomerson, Thomoson and others.

Migration of the Tomasso family to the New World and Oceana


The Welsh migration to North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries contributed greatly to its rapid development. These migrants were in search of land, work, and freedom. Those Welsh families that survived the long ocean journey were critical to the development of new industries and factories, and to the quick settlement of land. They also added to an ever-growing rich cultural heritage. A search of the immigration and passenger lists has shown a number of people bearing the name Tomasso: Mr. Thomason who settled in Virginia in 1649; Alex Thomason settled in Virginia in 1740; followed by Moses Thomason in the same year; John Thomason settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1818.
