Fleming was returned to Parliament for Winchester in 1601 through the influence of his father, a former recorder and MP of the city, who sat in this Parliament for Southampton. When, in the next Parliament, the father vacated his seat on being made a judge, Fleming was brought in at the by-election. He made his will 12 Aug. 1622 and died 19 Feb. 1624. He was buried at Stoneham near his mother, father and wife. His descendants in the female line lived there until modern times.
