Robert Banks Fletcher
« on: Monday 03 September 18 05:15 BST (UK) »
My first time here.  I have records that my great grandfather, Robert Banks Fletcher, was born in October, 1857 in Malton, Yorkshire, North Riding. Possibly christened in Hovingham, York.  He was married April 25, 1880 to Ellen Benson in Saint Thomas, York. His fatherís name was David Fletcher. Thatís all the info I have and was hoping someone might be able to find more information.  They ended up moving to Canada sometime before 1900 but I was hoping for records of any children born in York or other family records!  Anything would be greatly appreciated!!

I have records that my great grandfather, Robert Banks Fletcher, was born in October, 1857 in Malton, Yorkshire, North Riding. Possibly christened in Hovingham, York. 

Roberts birth was registered in the Malton registration district which covers Hovingham
https://www.ukbmd.org.uk/reg/districts/malton.html

As you say he was baptised in Hovingham 1st November 1857.  You would need his birth certificate for the exact date of birth

Hi,

David Fletcher's father George shown 1851 in Hovingham with his birth recorded as Snarlesworth.  This I believe is a corruption of Snilesworth near Hawnby and his baptism record:

Bapt 19/10/1775 Hawnby, Yorkshire Geo s/o Geo Fletcher Snilesworth
