TOAL Family History

This unusual surname is of Irish origin, and is an Anglicization of the Gaelic "O'Tuathail", translating as "descendant of Tuathal", an Old Celtic personal name composed of the elements "tuath", people, tribe, and "hal", rule. Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", meaning grandson or male descendant of, or "Mac", denoting "son of". The more familiar form of the surname is (O)Toole, as in the first recording below.
