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

Tuitoom Early Origins



The surname Tuitoom 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 went through one of the most devastating periods in its history with the arrival of the Great Potato Famine of the 1840s. Many also lost their lives from typhus, fever and dysentery. And poverty was the general rule as tenant farmers were often evicted because they could not pay the high rents. Emigration to North America gave hundreds of families a chance at a life where work, freedom, and land ownership were all possible. For those who made the long journey, it meant hope and survival. The Irish emigration to British North America and the United States opened up the gates of industry, commerce, education and the arts. Early immigration and passenger lists have shown many Irish people bearing the name Tuitoom: James Tuite who landed in Pennsylvania in 1856; James Tute settled in Virginia in 1652.
