FLICKER Family History

This very unusual and interesting surname is an excellent example of spelling development aided by dialect changes and letter transposition, over many centuries. The "modern" spelling derives from the early English medieval job descriptive "fletcher", a maker of arrows, and itself a Norman-French introduction after 1066, from the Old French "flechier". The surname as "Flicker" is 18th Century, the "links" being from "Fletcher" to Flechar or Flecher, one Harrye Flecher being recorded at Enfield, Middlesex, on October 6th 1552, through the rare Flicher, on Abraham Flicher, being recorded coincidentally also at Enfield, on April 9th 1727.
