TOHILL Family History

Tohill is of Irish origin and derives from O'Tuathail translating as "The descendants of the mighty people." Who these "mighty people" were is not proven, but as Ulster was the first province to be occupied by the Vikings in the 7th century a.d. it is possibly a reference to them. In anglicised form the more usual spelling is Toghill although Tohill has become the more accepted spelling over the past two centuries. The original home of the clan was the parish of Desertoghill. In the South the spelling form is usually Toohill and Twohill, although research suggests that these maybe a form of O'Toole.
