I am looking for information regarding the parents of Josiah Fletcher b. 20-10-1816 in Manchester d. 21-01-1845 in Victoria Australia by drowning.

His wife's name was Anne Bird b. 1819 in Ireland, sons, Edmund, George & John Clifton Fletcher

edf requires information on John Fletcher school master married to Mary Fletcher had a son named Josiah baptised on the 20 Oct 1816

edf is trying to determine if John and Mary Fletcher are the parents of Josiah Fletcher who married Anne Bird on the 09-10-1836 at Manchester cathedral and migrated to Australia on the Barque Salsette in 1841 with their two sons, Edmund and George

My name is edf and I am the G.G.Grandson of Josiah Fletcher b.1816 and Anne (Bird) Fletcher, married 1836 in Manchester

I would be very interested if anyone has information that would confirm that my G.G.G. Grandfather was indeed John Fletcher and my G.G.G. Grandmother was Mary Fletcher (maiden name Foden, previously married to Josiah Fletcher(victualler of old hall)..who sadly died of fever in 1811. Josiah and Mary had a daughter, Martha Fletcher b. 1806, whom I believe was my G.G. Grandfather Josiah Fletcher b. 1816, step sister. Martha married John Ralphs in 1832 and John Ralphs joined my G.G. Grandparents in Port Phillip Bay Australia in 1842 and to my knowledge Martha remained in England,(Martha was a witness of the marriage of Josiah to Ann Bird in 1836) I would be very interested if anyone has any history regarding Martha (Fletcher) Ralphs and also information about my G.G. Grandmother Anne (Bird) Fletcher who was remarried to George Hall (ex convict - highwayman) in 1845 after my G.G. Grandfather Josiah Fletcher tragically drowned at Merri Creek Victoria in 1845, George Hall died approximately 5 years later and Anne my G.G. Grandmother seems to have vanished ? Did she go back to England or did she re-marry and move to another state ? it was thought that Ann may have gone by her maiden name after the death of George Hall

Does anyone have information regarding Josiah Fletcher's parents, John Fletcher and Mary (knee Hilton) Fletcher... Manchester UK

Josiah Fletcher. b. 20-Oct 1816 in Hulme, d. 21-Jan 1845 by drowning at Merrie Creek in Victoria, Josiah married Ann Bird on the 9 Oct-1836 and they migrated to the Port Phillip Bay settlement in 1842 onboard the Sallsette.
Less than 12 months after Josiah's sudden death in 1845, Ann Fletcher married George Hall a former convict in December 1845
