There was another Thomas Fletcher around born about the same time as Johns brother. He is probably the one I found who married at 70ish a woman 40 years younger.
In earlier Census he is a widower. He lived into his 90's ;D

They obviously fit in somewhere, a bit of detective work needed, Holmes. :)
Have you checked out the Cheshire resources on RC?
There are quite a few Fletchers mentioned in the parish registers.
 
I'll leave you to it.
Good luck
Jean

Sorry, but what's RC?
I have masses of info on this family, just not the right one to tie them, one to the other.

I think if you get sidetracked at this stage it will be too confusing.
I can find at least 3 Thomas Fletchers on Ancestry born abt 1767. One has a wife Mary who is 7 years younger in 1851 Census.
One other marries an Esther abt 1838 and has a daughter Margaret when he is in his 70's ;D

The Mary Grindley, widow, who marries Thomas Fletcher could have been the wife of one of Elinors deceased siblings. But this all depends on how many Grindleys there were around in the area then.
Have a check of the Cheshire resources Brian and get back to this if you find anything.

Sorry Brian, didn't mean to confuse, I meant Rootschat resources at the top of the Cheshire page.
Sometimes a little lateral thinking pays off, you never know.
I'm sure you'll have a breakthrough soon.

I worked out that RC must be Rootschat but still haven't figured out which resource you mean as can't sort by the word 'Fletcher', and if you do go to names it seems to lead to a page where the hyperlinks are only to the subscribers.
On the other hand, just googling Fletcher and Chester will bring any pages that are relevant.
Or do you mean finding someone who could find John Fletcher's obituary in a newspaper?

Okay, click on the Cheshire Resources board. Then click on Update Cheshire Parish reg.  JDGen.
Click on the blue link this leads to the site. You can then search through the parishes in Chester that have been transcribed.

Quick addition,Click on Database on the left menu.

Thanks for that.
Actually, I know that site. Unfortunately, they still don't seem to have covered the areas where my Fletchers roamed because they don't show up.
Never mind, it made me explore that rootschat page that I've never done before
