Tuite's Family Tree

Updated July 18, 2002

With the help of Peter Tuite, Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath., Ireland, we have traced family back to the early 1800.

William (Billie) Tuite, born about 1800 owned a farm of about 150 acres on the Southern slopes of the Loughcrew Hills, Ireland. His wife's name is unknown but they had two sons, John and Patrick (Padra). Billie was evicted sometime between 1852-1862. Little is known about John, except he had a farm in Castlecur. Patrick had once been a soldier and had a farm in Patrickstown from which he also was evicted. Billie and his sons lived through the Great Potato Famine, 1845-1849, a blight that destroyed the crops and led to starvation and disease.

Another Tuite family, From Lurganboy, had two sons, Andrew and Walter around the same period of time. These boys married two sisters named Farrelly. Members of this family married into the Billie Tuite family decendents. At this time we don't have a common ancestor linking the Tuite name.

The Tuites are of Norman origin, having come to Meath, Ireland with Hugo De Lacy shortly after 1170. There are many Tuite families in Meath and Westmeath.
