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

Tynon Early Origins



The surname Tynon 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's Great Potato Famine left the country's inhabitants in extreme poverty and starvation. Many families left their homeland for North America for the promise of work, freedom and land ownership. Although the Irish were not free of economic and racial discrimination in North America, they did contribute greatly to the rapid development of bridges, canals, roads, and railways. Eventually, they would be accepted in other areas such as commerce, education, and the arts. An examination of immigration and passenger lists revealed many bearing the name Tynon:
