It is a big help! I have seen the name spelled Tamsutt/Tamsitt/Tamsett. I sometimes think the census workers just spell the words how they sounded to them and often so did the people the names actually belonged too. Plus sometimes the writing is just so faded, it is difficult for the transcriber to actually get the names right.
