Fletcher—This name, in Ulster and Scotland, is the anglicised form of Mac an Leastair. This sept were chiefs of the districts of Auchallader and Baravurich in Glenarchy, and occupied Drimfearn in the 10th century, and migrated to Glenarchy where they became arrow-makers to the Clan McGregor.
In all documents previous to the Scottish Rising of 1715, the name is written MacInleister, after which time it was changed to Fletcher.
The name has also been changed to Lister and M'Lester, confusing it with McAllister.
