Couldn't find Rebecca anywhere in 1861 or her birth registration but found her in 1871 with her mother and Grandmother in Ecclesfield District 11
Ann Green Widow aged 72 occupation Midwife born Nether Hallam
Ann Darwin daughter married aged 42 occupation Charwoman Sheffield
Alfred Darwin grandson unmarried aged 20 Occupation Steel Forgeman Bradfield
Rebecca Darwin Grand daughter aged 14 occupation domestic servant Bradfield
Emily Darwin grandaughter aged 9 occupation scholar Ecclesfield
Betsy Darwin grandaughter aged 5 occupation scholar Ecclesfield
Fred Dawin grandson aged 1 Ecclesfield
Charles Darwin didn't marry Ann Smedley till Jan 1866 so it suggests that Rebecca's original name was different. Either her mother's maiden name or her mother married previously. Tried just putting in first name but haven't found anyone that fits.
