Tomsett Early Origins



The surname Tomsett was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that county. This noble family originated in Vosges in Normandy and settled in Sussex sometime after the Conquest.
