The Fletchers - My Maternal Line


I was full of confidence when I began researching the FLETCHER family.  My mother was born in Dover and her family had the good sense to stay put.  Five generations revealed themselves, with very little effort on my part.  My 3x great grandfather John Fletcher married Sophia HOLLAND/S in Dover in 1807 - it was just a matter of determining which of the many Kentish Fletcher families he belonged to.  Or so I thought.

When I got around to consulting the census records I learned that John claimed Cumberland as his birthplace!  He was a long way from 'home'!

After a number of years I finally cracked the mystery - John had travelled south to Kent to work for his mother's brother.  A very large Fletcher clan existed in Cumberland, some details of which can be found on the chart below (my direct line of descent is bolded).  I must admit that in the excitement of tracing the Fletchers back in time I've neglected full details of my most immediate family and still need, in many cases, to look up dates of death, et cetera.

In addition, the following surnames are found in my mother's family tree.  I would be pleased to hear from anyone sharing these interests.

My great grandmother Mary Ann PEPPER FLETCHER was the daughter of Emma HADLOW and William PEPPER.  Emma remains a total mystery to me but I have a great deal of information on the Peppers.  The associated surnames of BARBER, BOXER, MORFORD, STARR, VERNON and WOOD are also being investigated.
