The modern Irish form of the name is O Tiobraide. This family originated as scribes, as a sept of the Dalcassian Clan. The name means "descendant of Tiobraide", which is derived from Gaelic word "tiobraid" meaning "a well".

Tubrit Early Origins



The surname Tubrit was first found in County Carlow (Irish: Cheatharlach) a small landlocked area located in the province of Leinster in the South East of Ireland, where O'Tybryth occurs in the Justiciary Rolls of 1311. However, the name actually belongs to County Clare. It occurs in the book of Lecan, the Book of Ballymote, and in the MacFirbis genealogies, as Ua Tipraide and O Tipraite.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Esperance
Motto Translation: Hope.
