The decease of the first namebearer (see below) is recorded in 1211 in the Ancient Irish Annals. The name now, as formerly, is mainly confined to Leinster. Church registers provide several instances of the name. The christening of William, son of William and Elizabeth Tuite is recorded in Inch by Gorey, County Wexford on May 28th 1801 and Alice Tuite was christened in Dublin on May 31st 1803.
