The Pilcher's of Wellington City NZ

Journal by RLPilcher

I am tracking down Thomas William PILCHER's family initially within New Zealand and collecting information of those that Thomas descended from in the UK (I believe they mainly came from the Kent region). Thomas married for a 2nd time to Harriet Catchpool who emigrated to NZ on the "Wild Duck" arriving 1864.
There is another branch of the PILCHER family in NZ who descended from Stephen PILCHER who settled in the Tawa area of Wellington. I am not researching Stephen Pilcher's line as there has been a very detailed family tree put together by Janice Wrigg. This has aided me hugely by enabling me to determine whom I should include/exclude in Thomas Pilcher's line. There are obvious other Pilcher's in NZ that arrived at various times in the 1800's and in different locations. No doubt we all relate back to a Pilcher some where in time in the UK.
Some of my Pilchers headed off to the Americas and South Africa - some returned, others stayed on in their new country.

Hi

My great grandmother was Florence Rose Marion Pilcher but I don't know when she and her brothers Arthur and Ernest came to South Africa. I have loads of Anderson cousins in NZ but would be interested to learn if there are Pilcher cousins too?

Hi KB,

I've looked through my Pilcher family for the Pilcher names you mention, but unfortunately no hits. I have also looked through the Pilchers of Tawa tree and again no hits. Although my mother was born in South Africa, they did not stay long before moving onto the USA, then eventually back to NZ. I do have some family relations that moved to SA, but they do not appear to be related to the Pilchers you are looking for. Sorry I can't help.

Regards Robert
