Daily Telegraph – 25 July 1912
On 24 July at Redfern, Isabella, relict of the late James Rook of Bristol England in her 79th year – presume James was from Bristol???

James Rook baptised 10 March 1833 St James’s Church Bristol Gloucester to John & Mary Rook – he died 24 May 1877 buried Rookwood Old Church Cemetery section J row 25 age 45

Thanks Val.

If the correct baptism for James then father as James on death reg is an error.
