The Pilcher's of Wellington City NZ
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.
