Do you know if any of the Rook family came to Australia - especially they were ministers of the Church of England?

Hi there Graeme and thanks for your query,
I only know a small bit on the Rook/Rooke family in Wiltshire, UK.
Many could have migrated to Australia or anywhere in the world.

The best thing for you to do is go tp Cyndis list at;
It is huge and is dedicated to EVERYTHING genealogy.

The other thing to do is join the Rook family mail List. Instructions are at;

This is a discussion area for anyone who has an interest in the surname ROOK.
