The surname Tumelty was first found in Roscommon (Irish: Ros Comáin) located in central Ireland in the province of Connacht, where they held a family seat as Chiefs of the Clann. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable. This Connacht family name was found later in Ulster in Monaghan and Down.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Tumalty, Tomalty, McTumelty, McTomelty, Tumelty, Tomelty, Tumeltie, Tomeltie, Timothy, Tumilty, Tomilty, Tumbelty, Tombelty and many more.
