Origins of surname
The arrowsmith made the steel points for arrows. Although for every fletcher who made the arrows themselves, there needed to be an arrowsmith to complete the job, the latter is found much less frequently as a family name, probably explained by other derivations for Fletcher.
Two different families became established in Jersey in the 1830s, far too late for them to have been carring out the original trade which gave rise to the family name.
