Tarrant: Quite numerous: Kerry-Cork etc. Ir. Ó Toráin, tor, a tower and by extension, a lord. The name is English (a toponymic); the extent that it has replaced Ó Toráin is not clear as the latter is associated with Derry where it is anglicised Torrens, q.v.
Thornton: numerous: all areas, especially Connacht, Derry, S Ulster, N Midlands. This is a portmanteau English name for: Ó Draighneáin, Mac Sceacháin, Ó Toráin. The connection is: draighean, blackthorn; sceach, whitethorn; tor, a bush. MacLysaght remarks that some Thorntons in Limerick were 16 cent planters. See Drennan, Skehan.
