The name is most likely derived from the barony of Fenton in East Lothian, which was held by the Fentons of the lords of Dirleton.
The first record of the name is that of John de Fenton who was sheriff of Forfar in 1261.
Around 1270 Sir William de Fentone married Cecelia de Bisset, daughter of Sir John Bisset of Lovat, aquiring the estate of Beaufort.
