The first recorded person of the name was William de Firsith on the Ragman Roll in Berwick on the 28th August 1296. Much of the records of Clan Forsyth were destroyed by Oliver Cromwell in the Civil War, therefore little is known.
In the 14th century during the Wars of Scottish Independence Robert de Forsyth received lands from King Robert I of Scotland.
