Hi there, great to hear from you. Yes Walter Pheasant is one of those buried (appropriately) at Pheasant Wood. I understand his remains have been identified and re-buried. I have not been able to establish a connection from our Pheasant family to his (yours) as yet so it may be either non-existent or further back along the family tree!
Our Pheasants came from the Billington, Bedfordshire area in England and my great-grandfather, George Pheasant, left England at 17 and moved to South Africa. Eventually he married and then travelled to NZ for some years and finally Australia where he pioneered a farm in the Millaa Millaa region of North Queensland.
George Pheasant came from  a very large family, however, and I am not certain of all their movements and their ancestors' prior to that time (around 1897). I know I came across the Farnell Pheasants during some of my earlier research.
if you think there may be a connection or would like help researching please feel free to contact me again as I have quite a bit of info about various Pheasants from some years' research.
