Fletcher History

The name Fletcher is fairly widespread across Scotland, the reason being that it comes from the gaelic ‘Mac-an-Leister’, meaning ‘son of the arrow-maker’. The arrow makers would associate themselves with various clans for whom they would make arrows.
For example, the Stewarts and Campbells in Argyll, and the MacGregors in Perthshire (the Fletchers of Glenloyn were associated with the MacGregors).
