Robert Fletcher II was born 1755, granted Freedom in 1841 and died in 1841.
He was the son of Robert Fletcher I, who died in 1788. Robert Fletcher I is mentioned in Chester's first and second directories. He made a mechanism for the Duke of Westminster for his home at Eaton Hall and was also a goldsmith.
The Chester Courant of 7 July 1789 records a move to Foregate St and the same paper on 16 October 1810 records the hanging of two young men at the New Gaol at the Northgate for a burglary in the shop of MR FLETCHER, watchmaker in Chester. Mr Fletcher did all he could to get the sentences reduced.
