The surname Tuitomb came to Ireland with the Anglo- Norman invasion of the 12th century. The Gaelic form of the surname Tuitomb is de Tiúit.

Tuitomb Early Origins



The surname Tuitomb was first found in Norfolk, where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Thwaite near Erpingham in that shire. Originally of Le Thuit, Eure in the Canton of Les Adnelys, before the Norman Conquest in 1066, Ralph del Tuit was described as 'the man' of Berenger de Todeni, son of Duke Robert of Normandy. After the Conquest, Ralph acquired lands from the Abbott of Holme near Erpingham, lands which he called Tuit, recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Thwaite. However, the family also retained the name Tuite. In 1172 Risteárd de Tiúit (Richard La Tuite) was a member of Richard de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke's Irish invasion force. He built one of the largest Motte and Bailey settlements in Ireland at Granard in 1199 and rose to become Lord Chief Justice of Ireland.

The Great Migration



Ireland's Great Potato Famine left the country's inhabitants in extreme poverty and starvation. Many families left their homeland for North America for the promise of work, freedom and land ownership. Although the Irish were not free of economic and racial discrimination in North America, they did contribute greatly to the rapid development of bridges, canals, roads, and railways. Eventually, they would be accepted in other areas such as commerce, education, and the arts. An examination of immigration and passenger lists revealed many bearing the name Tuitomb: James Tuite who landed in Pennsylvania in 1856; James Tute settled in Virginia in 1652.
