TOOMEY Family History

Recorded in many forms including O'Twomey, Twomey, Toomey, Twoomy, and Towmey, this interesting surname is Irish. It is a developed form of the ancient Gaelic name O'Tuama, translating as 'the descendant of Tuama'. This was a personal name probably derived from the word 'tuaim', meaning a hill or a small mountain, with the prefix O' denoting 'descendant of'. The name Twomey, usually without the prefix O, is now always associated with County Cork, and when found elsewhere it is generally spelt Toomey. In the Census of 1659, O'Twomey appears as the second most numerous surname in the barony of Barretts, County Cork, Murphy being number one...
