It was therefore with some trepidation that I learned from him last summer that his task was nearly completed, followed by his obvious query as to what happened next.
However, a few chapters read at random, and a glance or two at the new Family Tree connections, opened out for me such a vista of family lore extending the world over—that I was convinced it had to be published. It is now my great pleasure to present the in printed style of this task so willingly undertaken and so conscientiously compiled, with, for the enquiring mind, more dustcloths awaiting removal to give further lustre to the already many facets of this, our family history.

The George Branch Pocket Fletchers of Pentrich. Samuel Fletcher of Loscoe Lane, Heanor The explanation is very simple and human. It is iust this: In the late spring ofmy father, Edward John Wood Fletcher, became ill beyond recovery, so we had to inform his brothers, Samuel and William Percy, of his serious condition—not an easy duty to perform, as their whereabouts were unknown.
All we knew was that they and their families had left England. These first-fruits of research launched me on a long revealing voyage of discovery among Mwm seeking mwf for Hooton exploration back-roots, side-shoots and currents of family history, the products of which have been of rewarding interest to myself and a source of good news to kindred in many lands. During these excursions into strange waters, many unexpected obstacles have been encountered, surmounted, and as they passed astern, some of them became notable family landmarks.
The outstanding one of them all came into view in when forty-six direct descendants, members of the John, Joseph, Samuel, James, Catherine-Farnsworth, Robert, Mary-Houghton and George branches of the family, defrayed the cost of restoring the grave of Edward and Phoebe Fletcher, our common ancestors, whose resting- place graces St Paul s churchyard, Hyson Green, Nottingham.
There was a very happy ending to this act of family service. When all expenses were paid, a substantial surplus remained for disposal, so, after making a donation to church funds, the net balance, nearly xv twenty pounds, was handed to the Vicar, the Rev. Three years later  I drew my bow at a venture and made my first visit to Chaddesden Works, Derby, where John, Thomas and Edward, the sons of the late William Fletcher, gratified my long- cherished wish to see a lace machine in operation for the first time.
Before parting company we had a cup of tea and a friendly chat, during which the seed was sown that blossomed into the Fletcher Family Tree which permanently records the names of upwards of five hundred-and-fifty related twigs borne by its thirteen main branches.
One hundred-and-forty-two photographic copies of it were supplied to members of the family living in this country or overseas. These two major adventures were the spurs that goaded me into garnering a varied mass of lore from which we can trace the male line of our family back to the beginning of the eighteenth century, and probably much further.
I consented, but we mutually agreed to proceed on a much wider basis, hence the bulk of my own personal collection of family papers, reinforced by contributions from kinsmen belonging to all our main branches, is woven into the pattern of the compilation presented for your pleasurable regalement. Of necessity, a small minority of those mentioned herein figure more prominently than the rest, but only because I badgered and coaxed until they allowed the limelight to shine upon them in furthering the overall plan.
We owe them all our sincere thanks, since without the unremitting patience they exercised in delving for and framing their particular branch contributions, there could not have been a really complete and worthwhile story to tell you. Therefore, it is Mwm seeking mwf for Hooton exploration surprising to hear that we are reputed to spring from Scandinavian or Scottish stock, or both.
Other believers are convinced that coal production on estates in and around Smalley, Derbyshire, was the business of our ancestors before those of later times took to lace-making. This view cannot be lightly passed over, yet be all this as it may, Heanor seems the most likely district in which to trace the deep- down tips of our family beginnings. Let us now measure the claims of each held-to-be place of origin by the unquestioned evidence available.
During the seventeenth century, two brothers named Fetchler or Fechtler, left their native land to seek their fortune in America. They had to cross England, but only one brother completed the full journey beyond the seas. He that remained behind married, settled down somewhere in Cheshire, adopted the style of Fletcher and fathered a tremendous family, nearly all sons. In course of time this strain of Fletchers spread through Lancashire and further northwards over the border into Scotland.
Some made arrows for the Scottish clans they followed. Therefore, these craftsmen were found in B 1 Argyllshire as followers of the Campbells and the Stewarts, and in Perthshire with the MacGregors. Fletchers are a sept of the last- named and entitled to wear the clan tartan.
Thereby, substance could be given to this legendary belief and also explain the numerical strength of our Fletchers in this quarter today. Long Eaton was included in this survey, but the measure of his success never came to light, so this romantic story must remain a legend. I have often wondered whether Admiral Fechtler, U. Naval Chief, springs from this particular source. His reactions, if questioned, might be most illuminating. For upwards of fifty years members of our senior branch have suggested that the archives of Stainsby House, once the home of Robert Fletcher of Kilbourne, Derbyshire, a colliery proprietor, who died incould throw fight upon our family origin.
This seemed feasible, but the evidence on the Fletcher Memorial in Horsley Church, reproduced here, appears to negative this delightful thought. John Barber, in remembrance of the man who trained him up from a youth, and in regard to a family that had laboured for his emolument, erected this monument in There is no evidence to support this available at present. Its character has changed very little and the days there are as unhurried today as they probably were a hundred, or even two hundred, years ago. Stone quarrying, farming, coal mining, cotton doubling and wire manufacture have been the staple sources of local employment.
Various places of note lie within easy reach of those who enjoy open country on foot.
Wingfield Manor and Crich Stand are to the north; Matlock, north-west; Ambergate, south; Southwell, famous for its Minster, lies to the east; whilst Wirksworth is on the westward side of the village. Keating, John Piper, Jnr. All the data gathered, particularly from the church registers at Pentrich, failed to tie up with Heanor parish church records of the birth of Edward Fletcher at Heanor in and of his father, John Fletcher, at Heanor Wood in The part Pentrich Fletchers Tree on facing should convince you of the logical accuracy of our unanimity on this question.
Marsh of Derby, a direct descendant of the Pentrich Fletchers through the male line, once believed we shared the same root. This belief was upheld by her attendance, many years ago, at the wedding of a Pentrich cousin, Alice Julia Topham, to Samuel, son of Samuel Fletcher of Nottingham, grandson and son respectively of Edward and Phoebe Fletcher, nee Allen, of Heanor.
Some day, maybe, we shall learn that the male line of the Pentrich Fletcher family stemmed from Heanor. Its inhabitants, then only a very few thousands, were mainly employed in agriculture, the manufacture of stockings, and working the collieries. Furthermore, H. Each plot was bounded to the eastward by a frontage to the said Derby Road. Mwm seeking mwf for Hooton exploration these premises were sited on the plots originally allotted to John Fletcher in is open to doubt.
Messrs I. Morley, hosiery manufacturers, acquired this site and demolished the shop during reconstruction and alterations, but the old factory, so full of Fletcher memories, still continues to give good service to its new owners. Phoebe Allen, Mwm seeking mwf for Hooton exploration wife of Edward Fletcher, was born inso inability to refer to this vital and essential entry among the lost of that period of registration prevented the uncovering of the Allen back-roots and the tracing of this side of our family pedigree.
My subsequent enquiries reached as far as Salt Lake City, home of an immense Mormon library of genealogical reference works; but even that failed to remove the veil covering the roots of our Allens origin. However, these further Heanor Parish Awards by H. Can you blame me for venturing the claim that Thomas Allen, of plot 42, fathered Phoebe who became the wife of Edward, son of John Fletcher, occupier of 43? What do you think? A Janus-like glance towards Pentrich and Heanor seems to be a fitting tailpiece to this question of very widely differing ancestral beliefs in our root of family origin.
In making search through the church registers at Pentrich, I failed to find any reference to the birth of Joseph Fletcher who married Elizabeth Fletcher of that village in Maybe, our Joseph, the son of Samwill and Mary Fletcher of Heanor Wood, adventured a little further afield to do his courting than was customary in those bygone days, married Elizabeth Fletcher of Pentrich, and thereby established a branch male line to the main Heanor root.
Some of you may assert that our Joseph, then barely sixteen years old, was too young to be a bridegroom, but Phoebe Allen was only barely seventeen when Edward Fletcher led her from the altar a bride. She was also the mother of nine children before she reached the age of thirty. L and lasses of long ago matured rapidly and early, so on this human note our main branch contributors will continue the wider story which is written equally from both the male and female sides of the family.
The first one to take up the pen will be John William Synyer Fletcher, the spearhead of the younger band of our stock that pressed me into service for this, our third family effort. John is the great-great-grandson of Edward and Phoebe Fletcher and he will now tell us something of interest concerning the senior branch of our clan, whose headman was John Fletcher of Parkfields, Heanor, in the County of Derbyshire.
Other representative contributors will add their stories in order of main branch seniority. John, the eldest son of Edward and Phoebe Fletcher, was born at Heanor on July 27th,and died there on January 4th, Unfortunately, the exact year of business foundation has not been discovered as yet.Mwm seeking mwf for Hooton exploration
