The earliest know instance of this surname dates back to the beginning of the fifteenth century.

From an Arabic nickname mafsûd, referring to either a person that is "rotten, spoilt or corrupt" (of fsied), or someone "ill-tempered and outspoken" (of fasad).  In Maltese, it came to define someone who is "coddled and pampered".

The coat of arms bears a lion, a tree and a hill, all symbols of power.
