The name Monteith, also seen spelled as Monteath, is of territorial origin, coming from Monteith in south-west Perthshire.
In 1237, Malcolm de Manetheth appeared as a witness, whist a Colin de Mentaghe who was a juror on an inquisition at Perth in 1305, may also be Kilinus de Mineteth who was perpetual vicar of Kaledrach in the Dunblane diocese in 1322.
