Not quite sure of the accuracy of the family story re the iron boat.

From your post, do you mean you are not quite sure if this William Fletcher who died 1832  is yours?
Perhaps you could post the trail you have made to reach him as a possibility.  Then we can probably be of more help.

Hello and welcome to RootsChat.

I assume this is the business card you are trying to upload. Unfortunately not high resolution so difficult to read.  :)

Was William married to Mary Anne MANSELL a Widow in 1827?

If so he is a Engineer on childrens baptisms.
