Just seen your post. Although I have been researching the Fletcher family tree since 1983, I have only recently became aware that the John Fletcher inventor/gunmaker mentioned in your post is in fact a brother to my gt grandfather (it's a long story but all now proven). I would love to see the photos of the family vault you described. I'm sorry that I can't get you further back on the Beddows line but I have some interesting stuff on the Fletchers side, particularly Mary Jane Fletchers grand father. Do hope you are still contactable on the email you signed up to this site with.
