Evening Post 1 May 1926
A well-known and respected resident of the Lower Hutt, Mrs. Caroline Swain, wife of Mr. Samuel Swain, passed away on 27th April, after a very brief illness. Born in Lower Hutt fifty-one years ago, she was the third daughter of the late Mr. John Pilcher, who arrived in Wellington in the early ''60 s, and, after spending a short time in Wellington, went to Australia during the gold rush at Bendigo. After spending many months on the goldfields, he returned to Wellington, where he married and finally settled in the Hutt Valley. The late Mrs. Swain was of a very kindly disposition, and will be mourned by a large circle of relatives and friends. She leaves a husband and a family of six sons, Mr. Arthur H. (sic) J. Swain, of the Money Order and Savings Bank, Chief Post Office, Wellington, Mr. Albert Swain, railway workshops, Petone, and Messrs. William, Frederick, Leonard, and Percy Swain, of Lower Hutt, and two daughters, Misses May and Dulcie Swain, of Lower Hutt; also five brothers, Messrs. John, William, Henry, and Frederick Pilcher, of Lower Hutt, and Mr. George Pilcher of Waingawa, and five sisters, Mrs. F. Gilbert, Mrs. E. Mudgway, Mrs. N. Watkins, of Lower Hutt, Mrs. A. Swain, of Silverstream, and Mrs. E. Hodgkins, of Auckland.

Valley Garden Circle
Over fifty members of the Hutt Valley Horticultural Society''s Garden Circle met at Messrs. Pilcher''s nurseries in Waterloo Road on Thursday afternoon and spent several most enjoyable hours viewing the gardens under perfect weather conditions. In escorting the party round the grounds and hothouses, Mr. C. F. Pilcher gave much valuable advice on the propagation and cultivation of the more rare plants and shrubs, and also discussed the eradication of pests gardeners have to contend with.
The visitors were entertained by Mrs. Pilcher at tea, with an appetising array of good things. A vote of thanks to the host and hostess proposed by the president, Mr. William Smith, was heartily endorsed by all members.
