Forsythe graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland with his BA and from University of King's College, Windsor, N. S. with his MA. He was ordained deacon on July 12th, 1857 in Bishop's Cathedral, Halifax, Nova Scotia and ordained a priest on Trinity Sunday, 1859. Rev. Forsythe's first appointments were in the Maritimes. He served as missionary in Liverpool, N. S. (1858-61) and curate at Truro, N. S. (1861-62). From here he was assigned as missionary to Guysborough, N. S. (1862-63) and then to St. Eleanor's, P.E.I. (1864-73). In 1874 he moved to Ontario. The biographical outline, provided by the archives of the Diocese of Ottawa, shows him at Kitley, Ontario. While here his efforts were focused on helping the congregation at Easton Corners construct St. Anne's Church. Dr. Lockwood, in his history of Kitley, shares the anecdote that it was while Rev. Forsythe was negotiating the purchase of ornamental stone for St. Anne's Church, that he met his future wife. He and Agnes Henrietta Sophia Lundy were wed July 4th, 1877 at Carleton Place, Ontario. There is no reference to children.

His final posting was as incumbent at Sydenham, Ontario, where he served from 1891, until he retired in 1906. He died 8th September at Ottawa, Ontario.
