...Fletcher?
It's up in my family tree and I'm told it's Scottish. That's about all, and I'd like to find out some more info (immigration, original Gaelic spelling, etc)
Anybody know anything about it?

Like Smith and Cooper, Fletcher is an occupational name. Fletching means attaching the feathers to arrows; a fletcher made arrows. It might be Scottish (if so, probably Lowland) or it might be English. With an occupational name you just about have to know where the person came from to know what "nationality" the name is.

This link should take you to Clan Fletcher where you will see the clan castle and the family crest, also a short history. Good luck.

--------------------
Many times man lives and dies
Between his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul
And ancient Ireland knew it all.

" To a Scot, the past clings like sand to wet feet,
and is carried about as a burden.
The many ghosts are always a part of them, inescapable."
Geddes MacGregor

Hope, fear, false-joy, and trouble,
Are these four winds which daily toss this bubble,
His breath’s a vapour, and his life’s a span;
Tis glorious misery to be born a man.
~ from a Cornish gravestone

"Now I perceive the devil understands Welsh.”
"God defend me from that Welsh fairy,
Lest he transform me to a piece of cheese!”
William Shakespeare quotes

"Onen hag Oll", One and All (Cornwall's motto)
