There is an error somewhere if this is correct.

When Rebecca Rook was born in 1824, in Childerley, Cambridgeshire, England, United Kingdom, her father, Henry Rook, was 36 and her mother, Sarah Ivett, was 34. She married John Ivett on 29 June 1845, in Bluntisham, Huntingdonshire, England, United Kingdom. She immigrated to Adelaide, South Australia, Australia in 1851 ...

Sarah Ivett was born in 1790, in Rampton, Cambridgeshire, England, as the daughter of Charles Ivett and Eliz.. She married Henry Rook on 17 March 1813, in Over, Cambridgeshire, England ...


Part of the family ended up in NSW and part in SA ??
