The Tucker family name
The meaning of the family name of Tucker would lead us to believe the accepted proposition that those names ending in "r" or particularly "er" are derived from the occupation followed by the person who originally embraced the name as his designation, and accordingly Tucker signifies the old-time calling of a fuller, practically a clothdresser, for the word "tuck" means a fold of cloth.
