The ancestors of the Tymon surname in Ireland are thought to have arrived with or in the wake of the 12th century Anglo/ Norman invasion of the Emerald Isle, led by Strongbow. The surname Tymon is ultimately derived from the personal names Timothy or Thomas. The Gaelic form of the surname Tymon is Mac Toimin.

Tymon Early Origins



The surname Tymon was first found in counties Wicklow and Carlow (Irish: Cheatharlach) a small landlocked area located in the province of Leinster in the South East of Ireland, from 1172. Timon of Athens ( fl. 431 BC) was a citizen of Athens whose misanthropy grew to legendary status. He was the inspiration for Shakespeare's Timon of Athens (The Life of Tymon of Athens), one of his first tragedies.

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 Tymon:
