FAMILY HISTORY

(d) Richard Pilcher (1768-   ) was born in Wychling, Kent in 1768 . He married Annis (also listed as Anne or Alice) Bone on the 23rd April 1783 in Doddington, Annis's home village. Annis was born in Doddington (not confirmed) in 1772. Some family trees have Richard dying in 1795 but this is likely to be an error. (e) Richard Pilcher (1785-1795) who was baptized on the 4th April 1784 is Richard and Annis's son and it is probable that it is this Richard who died and was buried at Frinstead on the 28th August 1795. Richard (Snr) and Annis had a daughter who was born in Jan 1799, (e) Elizabeth (1799-1799) (who died and was buried on the 25th April 1799), which would indicate Richard (Snr) was very much alive beyond 1795. Richard and Annis's son, (e) James Pilcher (1785-1795), died a month before his brother Richard. James was buried on the 9th July 1795. These two boys were aged about ten and eleven at the time of their death so it is possible they both suffered from the same ailment prior to their early deaths. Annis must have suffered terribly at this time, losing two young children whilst expecting another. William arrived four months after Richard (Jnr) death. 

(e) Stephen Pilcher (1794-1865) was born in Wychling, Kent. In 1818 he married Ann McPharlane who was born in 1789 in Northern Ireland. Stephen and Ann had five (known) children born in Wychling, Kent, England. Three of these children are recorded as having been Baptized in St Margarets Parish Church in Wychling. Ann on the 7th January 1826, John on the 31st May 1829 and Stephen on the 27th November 1831. Following the death of Ann, Stephen decided to emigrate to New Zealand. Stephen departed England from the port at Gravesend on the 13th December 1839 arriving in New Zealand in August 1840 on the 'Coromandel'. Stephen's children, Susan aged 17, Stephen aged 11 and John aged 8, were also passengers. Another passenger listed on the  'Coromandel's' passenger list was Bennett Hook and her children, Rachael aged 12, Emily aged 8 and Friend aged 5. Stephen married Bennett Hook in New Zealand in 1842. Stephen and Bennetts relationship bloomed on the voyage out to New Zealand and daughter Sarah Annis was born on the 15th October 1840 (born prior to their marriage & conceived on the voyage) and died on the 20th October 1854. Stephen and Bennett had six more children following their marriage in 1842. In 1851 Stephen Pilcher gave some of his land away to enable the first Methodist Church to be built upon it. The Methodist Church was built in 1854. This site was later used to build Alex Cowan's factory upon. (Information from article on the net by Arthur H Carmon).

(f) Stephen Pilcher (1832-1929) was born on the 13th October 1832 in Kent, England.  He emigrated to New Zealand with his father, also Stephen, on the 'Coromandel' when he was aged 11. Stephen left New Zealand and settled in Victoria, Australia. In 1859 he married Mary Jane Rowe who was born in 1842 in Tavistock, Cornwall to parents Thomas and Elizabeth Rowe. Stephen and Mary had twelve children who were born in Maryborough, Sandhurst (Bendigo), Starthfieldsaye and Sutton Grange (near Bendigo). Their daughter Emma (1864-1955) married Walter Nathaniel Valentine son of, Wellington & Petone Publican, Nathaniel Valentine and Emily Hook. Emily Hook was the daughter of Bennett Hook and her step father (married to Bennett) was Stephen Pilcher (1794-1865) father to Stephen Pilcher (1832-1929) from his first marriage to Ann McPharlane. Stephen (Snr) Pilcher, Stephen (Jnr) Pilcher, Bennett Hook and Emily Hook were all passengers on the 'Coromandel' along with other members of both the Pilcher & Hook families.

(f) Elizabeth Pilcher (1848-1941) was born to parents  Stephen Pilcher (see tree above) and Bennett Hook (Stephen's second wife). Elizabeth married Francis Clarence Greer on the 20th April 1866 at Reverend M Fell's residence in High Street, Wellington, New Zealand. Francis Clarence Greer was a well known small farmer in the Tawa district of Wellington. His farm was called 'Clarence Farm'. In 1865 he built a cottage (as can be seen on the Greer Family Tree page) on section 33 at Tawa for Elizabeth, his bride to be. Francis and Elizabeth raised a large family at Tawa. Francis, as well as his farming interest, was a builder but he also became an Undertaker.

(f) Edward Pilcher (1851-1933) was born on the 25th Febuary 1851 in New Zealand brother to Elizabeth (1848) above. On the 12th December 1876 in Feilding, New Zealand he married Rose Churcher daughter of Isaac Churcher and Elizabeth Parsons. Rose was born on the 29 th November 1859 in Wickham, Hampshire England. Edward died on the 27th June 1933 in Palmerston North, New Zealand and Rose died on the 16th October 1939 in feilding, New Zealand. Edward was buried in Palmerston North and Rose was buried in Stanway, Feilding, New Zealand.
