Forsythe Family Crest


Forsythe Family Crest  The Irish and Scottish surname Forsythe is derived from an anglicized form of the Gaelic personal name Fearsithe, composed of the elements fear meaning “man” and sith meaning “peace.”  The spelling Forsythe is mainly found in northern Ireland. William de Fersith was one of an inquest in Edinburgh (1402), and Thomas de Forsyth witnessed a precept by Robert dominus de Lyle in 1452. An interesting bearer of the name was Alexander John Forsyth (1769 - 1843), who was offered 20,000 lira by Napoleon to reveal the secret of the percussion lock which he invented.
