Tovar


Tovar

Tovar, usually preceded by the particle "de" (meaning "from"), was the surname adopted in the Middle-Ages by a Castilian noble house of gothic ancestry that received the lordship of the village of Tovar from Fernando III. It has since spread to several Spanish and a few Portuguese branches.

The Tovar surname in the Americas appears mainly as a toponymic derived from the many settlements of this name founded there by the Spanish, and therefore does not share the same genealogical origin.
