The Forsythe Clan
Matthew’s family originated from Scotland, and his business logo is designed to pay homage to his ancestors. Matthew’s great-grandfather was born in the city of Leven, Scotland, the city Matthew and his father, William John Fredrick Erwin Forsythe (“Bill”), and his siblings always considered their homeland. Leven is located on the western coast of Scotland and situated on a body of water called the “Firth of Forth”. Bill first visited Leven in the 1950s while serving in the Army Signal Corps in post-war Germany. During that trip, Bill was able to locate a number of his Forsyth(e) relatives still living in Leven.
Traditionally, all Scottish families or “Clans” have their own plaid or “Tartan” that acts as an official designation of the Clan. By the 16th century, the name “Forsyth” was a recognized Clan with its own Chief. However, the Forsyth Clan disappeared from the historical record around 1650 when Cromwell's ships carrying records of all the Clans as spoils of war, sank off Berwick on Tweed. The then chief failed to re-establish his claim to the name and his Armorial bearings when Charles II instituted a public register of Clans in 1672. So, for 300 years there was no Chief of the Forsyth Clan and no Chief meant no Clan.
Even without a recognized Chief, however, the Family of Forsyth grew and spread worldwide until interest in reviving the Clan began in the early years of the Twentieth Century with the formation of a Forsyth Family Association in Glasgow, Scotland. Finally, after decades of historical darkness, on St. Andrews Day 1978, Lord Lyon, King of Arms, once again recognized Clan Forsyth as one of the whole name Clans of Scotland and accepted the claim of Alistair C.W. Forsyth, Baron of Ethie, to be the rightful candidate and Chief of Clan Forsyth.
