Biography

Samuel was born in 1632, most likely in England. He is the son of Robert Fletcher. He settled in the part of Chelmsford which is now Westford. In 1679, Samuel Fletcher took up a piece of land on the west side of Great Tadmuck (twenty-six acres) the bounds of which were renewed in 1709. He subsequently made additions to his original grant until he owned about four hundred acres, extending to Sparks Hill and "Mackrill Cove" including the farm on which his grandson William settled about 1730. He was admitted freeman, March 21, 1690.[1]

He married Margaret Hailston, on Oct. 14, 1659.[2]According to E. H. Fletcher Samuel and Margaret had five children: Sarah, Samuel, Hannah, Lydia, and William. [1]There is no mention of Sarah in the vital records of Chelmsford, while the births of other four are recorded.

Samuel died on Dec. 9, 1697,[3] and his gravestone in the burying-ground in Middle Chelmsford reads :

Fletcher-3439 and Fletcher-1401 appear to represent the same person because: These two profiles are virtually identical in terms of dates and relationships. I believe they should be merged
