My grandfather is from Liverpool (Garston), and the family is originally from near Edinburgh, dating back to the middle ages, but our branch lived in Londonderry, Northern Ireland from at least sometime before the 17th century (there is a Neal MacFetters listed in a parish registry in the 1650's in Londonderry) until the end of the 19th century. Family lore includes a story of ancestors forced to eat rats during the seige of Londonderry. I don't know many other details, but my grandfather had initially immigrated to Nova Scotia before coming to America. I'm not sure if he had family there or not.
