Fletcher Tartan & Clan

The patronymic of the Clan was Mac-an-leistear, and prior to 1700 was written in documents as 'MacInleister'. When surnames came to be used, in about 1745, the name was anglicised as Fletcher - the equivalent of the Gaelic 'Leisdear', man of the arrow. The first person to use the English 'Fletcher' seems to have been Archibald the VIIIth Chief.

WHERE DOES THE Fletcher CLAN HAIL FROM?
One of the most magnificent of the many lovely Highland glens is undoubtedly Glenorchy, whence the Fletcher Clan is said to have originated.
