ABSTRACT
The article examines records that provide biographical information about English playwright John Fletcher. Particular focus is given to the confusion over the identity of John Fletcher of Corpus Christi College in Oxford, England and John Fletcher of Rye. The age of the playwright at his death and his university education based on testimony by London, England stationer Humphrey Moseley is tackled. Scottish literary historian Alexander Dyce assumes that the playwright was born in Rye in Sussex, England and died at 45 based on a baptismal entry.
