No birth record exists. Her date of birth was recorded at her baptism in Goulburn in November 1857 at the age of 4 years 11 months. At her death in 1923 her son Herbert gave her place of birth as Goulburn. Rebecca had grown up at Goulburn, as had her sister Isabella who was just 1 year older. Isabella had been told by her father that she had been born in Sydney (information that today is able to be verified from a baptismal record). Rebecaa's son Herbert was able to provide this correct information for the place of birth of Isabella at her death in 1911. From what Rebecca had learnt from her father about her own birth, she had told her family that she was born at Goulburn.
