Varie famiglie omonime si propagarono in diverse regioni d’Italia. Le notizie bibliografiche che ci vengono tramandate sono riconducibili a questa casata di cui ne abbiamo tratto nota. Antica e nobile famiglia originaria del Lazio. Altra famiglia alzò per arma. D’azzurro, ad un cane bracco d’argento, collarinato di nero tenente in bocca un tozzo di pane al naturale, rivoltato e passante sopra una campagna pure al naturale. Fu costume delle più antiche famiglie, le quali dopo la caduta del Romano Imperio, in quella inondatione de’ Barbari, havendo i loro cognomi, sicome gli studi, e altre cose belle smarrito e restati solo con semplici nomi, trarre di nuovo i loro cognomi, e il loro casato da’ nomi proprii paterni, e de’ maggiori..

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : The Italian Last Name of TOZZI was an occupational name ‘the tozer’ one who tossed or teased cloth, one who carded wool or raised the nap on a cloth. The name also meant one who was the inspector who was required to stamp his approval on cloth. Many crafts were required regarding cloth and wool, first from the shearing of sheep to the finished article. The occupation of the officer whose duty it was to inspect all cloths for proper quality and length and attach his seal of approval, was an unpopular official. It was known in the Middle Ages that such a person could be mobbed and mortally wounded, should his sanction not be given. Other spellings of the name include TOZZETTI, TOZZINI, TOZZONO and TOZZIN.

There is still a great potential for research into medieval Italian records while documented evidence indicates the adoption of the father’s name as a Last Name is the most common form. The familiar endings of “i” and “o”, meaning to be a member of a certain family, bears this out. Social conditions in Southern Italy during the agricultural depression of the late 19th Century spurred the first wave of emigration as thousands of people escaped to the New World. Latin America was the original destination for these early settlers but as the economy strengthened in the United States, North America became more popular….
