Though shrouded by the mists of time, the chronicles of Scotland reveal the early records of the Norman surname Dysard which ranks as one of the oldest. The history of the name is interwoven within the colorful plaid of Scottish history and is an intrinsic part of the heritage of Scotland.

Dysard Early Origins



The surname Dysard was first found in Fifeshire at Dysart, a former town and royal burgh located on the south-east coast between Kirkcaldy and West Wemyss. It was once part of a lands owned by the Sinclair Clan. A local saying “as old as the three trees of Dysart” eludes to the town's ancient origins. Derived from the Gaelic "děseart," meaning "height of God." However, some believe that the name was derived from the Latin word “deserta” meaning “the fasting place of a holy man” in reference to the legend of St. Serf who came to Dysart around 500 AD.
