This was the regular term for the occupation during the Middle Ages in western and northern England. Compare Fuller and Tucker . As a Scottish surname it has also been used as a translation of Gaelic Mac an Fhucadair ‘son of the fuller’. This surname is also very common among African Americans.History: The name was brought to North America from northern England and Scotland independently by many different bearers in the 17th and 18th centuries.
