Origin of the Name Tuohy

The Tuohy family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Tuohy include Toohey, O'Tuohy, Tuohey, Twohig, O'Towey, Towey, Tuffy, Tookey and Tuthill. The name in Irish is O'Tuathaigh, and they were a branch of the Ui Maine, being seated at Aughrim, County Galway and the modern form of the name is Tookey. This name is to be found, for the most part, in Clare and south-east Galway. It is in Tipperary that the name also appears frequently in the seventeenth and eighteenth century, in the Hearth Money Rolls and court cases. We begin to find the form Twohig in the middle of the sixteenth century in quite large numbers in County Cork. The form Tuohy is especially numerous in County Roscommon and there they had a small territory lying in the parishes of Moygawnagh and Kilfian, the sept being a branch of the Hy Fiachrach.
The Tuohy coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Tuohy descendants.
