ELEANOR HARRIS 1819 - 1882 ... Broomfield, England to New Zealand 1841

ELEANOR "HELEN" HARRIS was born in Broomfield, Essex, England about 1819.
She emigrated to New Zealand on the "Slains Castle" in 1841 with a Samuel Harris who was maybe her brother ..?
The following year, in Wellington, she married George Pilcher (who had arrived in 1839 on the "Bolton" from Gravesend) and they had 12 children from 1844 to 1862, all born in the Wellington District.
She and George moved up to the Hawkes Bay at some stage after that - they both died in that area, George in 1891 in Napier and Eleanor in possibly Clive, in 1882.

I would like to know her parents and whether her travelling companion Samuel Harris was indeed her brother, if so, what became of him...

Frans Johannes van Berlo was born in Holland in 1922. He arrived in New Zealand from the Netherland in 1952 ... He died in Masterton in 1993
