Alfred Cocker

... Our own correspondent states that a wedding took place at the residence of the bride's parents, Normanby, on Thursday, when Alfred Cocker, son of Mr J. Cocker, was married to Annie, second daughter of Mr R. Garden (Robert & Mina Garden). The bride, who was given away by her father, was dressed in a handsome crepe de chine gown trimmed with lace and chiffon, and wore the usual wreath and veil. She was attended by her sister, Miss M. (Mina Barbara) Garden, as bridesmaid, and by her little twin sisters (Mary Ann & Agnes Grant Garden) as flower girls, and prettily dressed in white muslin, and carrying handsome bouquets. Mr J. Unsworth was best man. The ceremony was performed by the Rev J. R. Shore. After partaking of breakfast the newly married pair left by the mail train en route for Wellington, where the honeymoon will be spent. The presents were numerous and valuable, the bride receiving a handsome gold brooch, and the bridesmaid a gold bangle, from the groom. In the evening, Mr and Mrs Garden entertained a large gathering of friends, and a most enjoyable time was spent, the party breaking up with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne" at about 1 a.m.

- OBITUARY of John Cocker at NORMANBY
... Another old settler in the person of Mr John Cocker passed away at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr F. Bischoff, ot Turuturu road, on Saturday, after a long illness. Mr Cocker was born in Manchester, England, and for some years followed farming pursuits there, but as the result of an illness was advised to come out to New Zealand. He arrived in the Dominion in June, 1886 (on the Doric), when, on the the advice of an old friend, Mr Fitton, he settled for a time at Manaia. Some time afterwards he was the first settler to take up land at Ararata where he resided for about six years. When he retired from active business he settled at Normanby, where he has resided practically since. Mr Cocker took considerable interest in local matters, and was for a number of years a valued member of the Town Board; indeed, his resignation as a member was only accepted at the last meeting.
Mr Cocker was a farmer of the old school, and by his integrity and straightforwardness in all business transactions he made many friends in the district. As a staunch member of the Methodist Church he will be much missed; it was largely owing to his generosity that the Normanby Church was built a few years ago. Mr Cocker is survived by his wife and two sons and one daughter; namely, Mr Alfred Cocker, of Normanby, and Mr John Cocker of Omona, and Mrs F. Bischoff, of Turuturu road, for whom much sympathy is felt by their numerous friends.
The funeral took place on Tuesday (Old Plot 33, Row J at Waihi Burial Old Lawn). Pall-bearers were Messrs Antrobus, Dawson, Ballantyne, and Dickson, and the representative gathering testified to the respect in which he was held. Rev Mr Blamires conducted the burial service
