TULLY Family History

There are two possible sources of this interesting Irish name, Tully being an Anglicization of either of them. The first possibility is the Gaelic "O'Taithlagh", meaning descendant of "Taithleach", a byname meaning quiet and peaceable. Alternatively, Tully may originate in the Gaelic "O'Maoc Tuile", which means "the descendant of the devotee of (St.) Tuile", a personal name derived from "toil", meaning "will (of God)". 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". There seems to be some confusion as to where in Ireland the name Tully originates because it is not known which Gaelic name the Anglicized forms, Tully, Tally, Tilly and Talty derive from, but generally it is thought to be a County Clare name, with Tully being prevalent in County Galway...

    Hello! I'm researching my ancestry. My grandfather immigrated to Chicago, Illinois, but he was born in Galaway in 1883. I believe his parents were Patrick and Nora Tully. I'm searching for more information. Curious to know if this Tully Crest is part of my heritage too.

    Hi All, This is the information I have so far in regards to my Tully Ancestors. It is said that my Direct ancestor Robert Tully came from Ireland to India through England in the early 1800's born around 1780 - 1790 to serve the British who were ruling India at that time till 1947. Robert Tully could have married a Native Woman in India which was a common practice at that time as the British encouraged European Men to take on Indian native woman as their wives / partners to create a race that came to be known as the Anglo-Indian. The Child that was born through this union was Robert Tully my 3* Great Grandfather on my Paternal Grandmothers fathers side. Robert Tully jr. was born around 1814/15 should have been in India as no records of his b
