Monteith family crest


Monteith clan crest


The Scottish surname Monteith, also spelled Montieth, is a habitational name from a place in Perthshire, named in Gaelic as “hill pasture above the Teith,” from monadh meaning “hill pasture” and  Teith, a river name of obscure origin. This name was introduced to Ulster, northern Ireland in the 16th Century by Scottish settlers where it is now quite numerous in certain areas, particularly County Tyrone. The first recording in what can be called a modern spelling may be that of Thomas Monteith, a landowner in Glasgow in 1490.
