The surname Wishart is the same as the old French name Guischard which derives from the old French word Wischard, meaning ‘prudent’, ‘wise’.
Around the start of the 13th century, a grant of the mill teind to Cambuskenneth Abbey was witnessed by William Wischard.
In 1245 John Wischard was recorded as having been a witness, and nine years later, in 1254, he is in the records again, this time having been present at the preambulation of the bounds of Conon and Tulloch.
