"AIRTH. A not very common surname derived
from the barony of Airth near Larbert,
Stirlingshire. About the year 1200 William de Arthe
witnessed a grant to the Abbey of
Cambuskenneth (Cambus., 81). Richard Derth (i.e.
d'Erth) is mentioned' as falconer to the king
of Scotland in 1212 (Bain, i, 532), and Bain
notes in his preface that Airth was a famed
breeding place of falcons. Willehnus de Herth
witnesses a charter by Maldouen, third earl
of Lennox, c. 1248 (Levenax, 11). Elena,
spouse of Bernard de Erth, laid claim to
certain lands in the sheriffdom of Dumbarton in
1271 (RMP., p. 191). Hugh de Erthe, bailiff
to Sir John Cumyn in 1291, is probably the
Hugh de Erthe, knight, who was taken
prisoner in Dunbar CasUe in 1296 (Bain, n, 532
and p. 178). Marie, widow of Huwe de Erthe
of the county of Stirling, and Richard de
Erthe, king's tenant in the county of Edneburk,
both rendered homage in 1296 (ibid., n,
p. 201, 214). According to Nisbet's Heraldry
the family of this Richard de Erthe ended in
heirs female. Between 1296 and 1300 William
of Erth appears as a charter witness (Laing,
18), and in 1331 Thomas de Arth had a
dispute with the earl of Mar (APS., i, p. 512).
John de Erth witnessed a charter by Robert
Steward of Scotland, temp. David n (ibid., i,
p. 561), Welsh de Erthe is witness to a
confirmation charter of David n 1364 (RMS., i, 187)
and Fergus de Erth appears in 1369 (RMS., i,
336). Sir William de Erthe was one of the
hostages for King James i in 1423-4 and again
in 1426 (Bain, iv, 942, 1003). His family
ended in three daughters the eldest Agnes,
prior to 1414, married (1) Edward de Brus,
second son of Sir Robert Brus of Clackmannan,
and (2) an Elphinstone. Remission was granted
to a man for the slaughter of John Erth in
1497 (RSS., i, 114), George Arthe of Smetoune
and his sons were assaulted in 1537 (Trials, i,
p. 201), and in 1548 mention is made of
cottage lands in Coldingham occupied by
David Arth (Home, 195). A grant by the late
queen to David Arthe, burgess of Cupar, also
mentions the lands of George Arthe in 1580
(ER., xxi, p. 100), and in 1601 David Airthe
was a member of the town council of Stirling
(SBR., p. 283). John Airth is recorded in the
Mains of Kincardine in 1617 (Dunblane),
George Airthe was provost of Cupar in 1628
(RFC., 2. ser. n, p. 178), and as Airthe the
surname appears in Tyninghame in the
seventeenth century. A pension was paid to
Margaret Airth in Edinburgh, 1736 (GuUdry,
(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
