Would the Toalster name originate from England?

Tolsters, Toulsters, Towlsters of Mayo in 1800's... maybe?

A few FindMyPast possibilities?

Looks like that, or Toalumter. No idea if there is such a name, but I know there are some very peculiar sounding names in parts of England.

My guess would be Todhunter. The writer made his "d" like "a" - see David on next line
