Fletcher's and Preece Leominster
« on: Tuesday 28 March 17 15:44 BST (UK) »
Eliza Fletcher is my GGG Grandmother born in Leominster. 

I got my previous posting all wrong hope but don't know how to get rid of it so have re posted with the correct details on a new topic.

George and Eliza's daughter Charlotte Fuller married John Timms.  I think Charlotte was born prior to their marriage as she is 5 on the 1841 census and according to her marriage certificate she was 20 in 1857.  I have found a Charlotte Fletcher 09.07.1837 daughter of Eliza in St Owen's Herefordshire.  Could someone check this for me to see if this was her. George Fuller and Eliza Fletcher didn't marry until 24.06.1858 at St Peter's Hereford.

JOHN TIMMS Gland Packer/Railway Engine Driver
Born  1835 London
Died 03.1901 aged 66 Salford
Married 06.1857 Hereford
CHARLOTTE FULLER
Born 1835 Herefordshire
Died 12.1913 aged 79 Salford
Her parents were

GEORGE FULLER
Born 22.05.1814 New Radnor
Died 09.1869 Hereford aged 51
Married 24.06.1838 St Peter's Herefordshire
ELIZA FLETCHER (Nurse and Midwife)
Born 28.02.1816 Leominster
Died March quarter 1887 age 60

Eliza Fletcher's parents were Thomas & Elizabeth Fletcher nee Preece.

I think I am correct in this assumption as on one of the census Thomas & Elizabeth were living in Gaol Street Hereford the same as their daughter Eliza and her husband George Fuller.

On the 1841 census Eliza is married to George Fuller and she has 2 children.  There is also a Thomas Fletcher a Labourer living with them age I think is 20 HO107/433 8 page 28. Haven't found any birth for him but thought it could possibly be her brother.

I have found the 1841 census for Thomas Fletcher senior born 1787/1791 on the census with his family Mary 1826, James 1828, Ann 1832 and Edward 1841. All born in Herefordshire.

1851 census living in Gaol Lane aged 63 a labourer with Elizabeth 64 and Ann Fletcher aged 22 all born in Herefordshire. HO107 1978 271 page 29

On the 1861 census the couple are still living in Gaol Street Thomas is aged 73 and he as now changed that he was born in Pershore Worcestershire and Elizabeth now has her age as 76 and she was born in Orleton Herefordshire. RG09 1821/83 page 6

Can anyone assist me as to birth dates of Thomas Fletcher and Elizabeth Fletcher nee Preece so that I can continue with their parents names.

If I have posted wrongly again I apologise in advance

Any help gratefully appreciated.

Eileen

Hello Jennifer

Thanks for that.  I did see this one with parents Joseph & Ann but would she be baptised at Leominster if she lived in Orleton.  Don't know the area so I am working blind.

Thanks again

Eileen
