TOSCIRI | TOXIRI

Tosciri is a very rare surname specific to Ogliastra in Sardinia, of Baunei, Tortolì and Lotzorai, Toxiri, even rarer, is specific to Tortolì, should derive from a nickname originated from the word Sardinian Tosca (pumice), perhaps to indicate that the ancestor He was extracting or working the pumice. Integrations provided by Luca Porru The first attestation of these cognominizations dates back to the SIXTEENTH century, in the chapters of Grace of the county of Quirra in which is cited a Nicolaum Toxeri in charge of representing the villa of Baunei for the requests of the vassals Baunesi to the feudatories of Quirra. A Toxiri branch from Tortoli is rooted in Lotzorai
