The Fletchers with Roots In Southeastern Pennsylvania

Updated November 9, 2000

About Our Family Research


My father, George, was the youngest of more than 10 children born to Emma (Speak) and Joseph Fletcher. Only one child, Mae, survives today.

I would like to trace the ancestry within the USA and to the original settlers from Europe. Once I can find the Fletcher who came to the States I intend to work through the Society of Geneologists Library in London to go back into the 1100s.

Fletcher's appear to be a difficult name to trace from England since every town that had a castle seems to have lots of "fletchers" living in the town. When last names began to be commonplace in the 1100s, it appears that the Fletcher name was given to many families who made arrows.
