Tonks is a Saxon name. The Tonks' came to england In 522AD when the Saxons invaded & conquered england. They remained in the south of england until 1066 when the Normans invaded england, (battle of Hastings). Because the ruling saxons were complete bastards to the Angles, the angles with the help of the normans made life pretty harsh for the saxons, therefore the Tonks' moved north to places like Birmingham, this is why you see so many Tonks in the north. Norfolk and suffolk derives from the country being split into the north folk and south folk during this period
