Moses Fletcher
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1564
Death: 1621

Moses Fletcher was born about 1564 probably in Sandwhich, England. He married a woman named Mary Evans on 30 October 1589. Together they had ten children. He was excommunicated in 1609 after burying his daughter Judith in a manner unapproved by the church of England. This prompted Moses to join the Pilgrim Separatists and flee to Leiden, Holland. There he worked as a blacksmith and married a woman named Sarah in 1613 shortly after his wife Mary died. In 1620 Moses, along with other members of his church, departed for the new world. It is unclear why Moses came by himself on the Mayflower. Perhaps his wife Sarah had died by that time. He signed the Mayflower Compact November 1620, but died alone sometime that first winter.
