[pam garrett's comment] Ratham Fletcher may be same as Catherine Fletcher.
It seems likely that the name Vincentia comes from the family name Vincent. Note that the name is also used in the Townley family which was closely related to Benjamin Fletcher's wife, Elizabeth Hodson. One of Elizabeth Hodson Fletcher's sisters was married to Henry Townley. In this database, see Henry Townley for more interesting information.
