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

Tuitone Early Origins



The surname Tuitone 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 experienced a dramatic decrease in its population during the 19th century. This was in a great measure, a response to England's imperialistic policies. Hunger and disease took the lives of many Irish people and many more chose to leave their homeland to escape the horrific conditions. North America with its promise of work, freedom, and land was an extremely popular destination for Irish families. For those families that survived the journey, all three of these things were often attained through much hard work and perseverance. Research into early immigration and passenger lists revealed many immigrants bearing the name Tuitone: James Tuite who landed in Pennsylvania in 1856; James Tute settled in Virginia in 1652.
