Hi,

Very interesting about the church.

I have attached a copy of the census that shows some alteration to Robina/Rebecca's name? I think Rebecca is assumed?

I'm not sure if we will ever really know true Robina's parentage. Although my gut feeling goes with George. ( illegitimate)

I do know that when Robina emigrated to Newcastle, Australia from NZ married and with family, she purchased a house in her own name. (I assume she was using family money???).

I purchased some tokens for Scotland People and purchased death records of Charles,John & Mary - nothing significant. I also purchased the Will of Charles nothing significant noted there either. By the way the site is much easier to use now.

Apparently, later in life Robina had very poor eyesight and had to hire a live-in-house keeper. That's how my G Grandmother (Mary Veronica Farrell) met my G Grandfather, (Robina' son) Joseph. Molly (her nickname)was the housekeeper. Quite an age difference at the time. Must of been funny at the time Robina being a protestant and My old Gran a strict Catholic!!! lol

Thank you so much, your help is invaluable!!!

Kim
