An interactive graphic at the top of blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2014/03/borrowed-words shows source-language proportions of words borrowed into English, either cumulatively or per 50-year period. As Latin and French have provided by far the largest proportions of loan words (and because Latin and French words often are multisyllabic) they have also provided the largest numbers of high-syllable-count words.
