Early Origins of the Tunmore family

The surname Tunmore was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1276 when they held lands.
