Early Origins of the Tumlin family
The surname Tumlin 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
