The surname Tymons is ultimately derived from the personal names Timothy or Thomas. The Gaelic form of the surname Tymons is Mac Toimin.

Tymons Early Origins



The surname Tymons 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.
