It was shortly after the untimely death of her husband, Private Fletcher, a Grenadier in the Hampshire English Militia, that this young woman and mother, to be known from then on as the Widow Fletcher, decided to turn her home into a tavern. The year was 1764 in Hampshire County England.
In the years that followed, the Widow Fletcher's Tavern became a notable stopping place for weary travelers and an active watering-hole for the local populace and county Grenadiers stationed nearby, many of whom were former comrades of late Private Fletcher.
The attractive young widow, active and always fascinating, became a popular figure with her patrons who spread the word throughout England about this unique Tavern and equally interesting proprietor. Noted for its cooking and hospitable ways, the tavern became a successful venture which handsomely supported herself and her only daughter.
