Toczyński gives 43 web pages in Google engine so It is common and everyday surname and I look on this pages and all of them refer to Polish families in Poland not US one, so it is common, not us much us Nowak or Kowalski but common

My name is Jim Toczynski. I live in Manistee, Michigan. When I first got on-line, I was kind of surprised to find other "toczynski's". Do you know what part of Poland your family came from? I have seen there are toczynski's in Bullafo New York, California, and other places too.

I think I have an Americanized version of that name, Touchinsky.

Other than my grandfather's relatives and my family, I don't know of any other Touchinsky's. I've been told that the polish version of the name is quite common.

My email is dr.(mylastname)(at)gmail(dot)com (everything is spelled out because I do not want an automatic program to pick up my email and spam me)

My grandmothers name was Toczko. from Wara. I understand that there are many spellings of this name and also male and female versions, I think! She had a couple of different spellings, one Toczek, the other Toshick. So there are plenty of them out there, just try and find the one that belongs to you!

Well David, look here :

It is quite probable, that your ancestry is from middle east of Poland. As it turns out I know a few of Toczynski's. Who knows, maybe some of them are your relatives, because there isn't many of them in Poland realtively speaking. In fact it is quite likely..

Ech, old old thread, it is a shame

Yep, way over 300 Toczyńskis in Poland. So not so rare as you can see.

TOCZYŃSKI: root-word toczyć (to turn or roll), but probably a toponymic nick (most -ski names are!) from such places as Toczeń, Toczyski, Toczyska or Toczyłowo (Turnton, Rollville?) More than 600 users in today's Poland, the biggest single concentration being in eastern Poland's Biała Podlaska area.

Hi Katie,

My grandmother was Maria Katrina Toczynska born in Mielec, Poland and my mother Elizabeth Maria Gajewska was born there too. We live in Sydney, Australia now.

Maria's parents were Anna Reipold (Polish-born but whose parents were colonists from Bavaria) and Karol Gajewski.

My mother just found and met a first cousin in Canada - Maria Toczynska, whose father was Mateusz Toczynski from Mielec.

Are we related?


By the way, Anna Reipold and Karol Toczynski from Mielec had 10 children. :)

TOCZYŃSKI: basic root is toczyć (to roll, to turn on lathe); most likely a topo nick from Toczeń (roughly: Rollville, Turnerton) meaning "the bloke from Toczeń".

A coat of arms accompanies this surname.
