The variant spelling of Tungate is interesting as the name is pronounced Tunget in the norfolk dialect. (Norfolk is the eastern county of England, opposite Holland). Easy to see how the change of spelling occurred on entry to USA. Does anyone know which village in Norfolk, England, Americans came from. Village north of Norwich, near North Walsham, called Tungate does not exist today - only Tungate farm remains, which is a leisure centre today. Farmer moved south to Filby, Ormesby, Scratby, California! (yes a small hamlet on the coast), north of seaside resort, Great Yarmouth. Many Tungates still in Norfolk today and they seem to be direct descendants of main farmer of 1791 and mostly eldest son called James. It would appear that American Tungates started out for America long before we thought they did.
