  1. My grandmother, Helen Young, and step-grandfather, Dr. James Carruthers Young bought The Rookery (Old Rectory) in Rockland St. Peter on June 28, 1932, for 600 pounds.

    Would love any information about the house, such as does it still exist, what was the exact address, are there any photographs?

    Thank you so much! (We will be visiting Norfolk in the near future to do genealogical research on our family.)

  2. Thanks so much! Just saw this. We are visiting Norfolk this summer. I notice there’s no reference to my grandparents in the history of the house (The 1930s era was not mentioned). What is the best way for me to get copies of deeds, etc., from that time?

    Thanks so much for sending the link! Great pictures. Looks like there’ll be no difficulty finding the house.

  3. Hi! My husband and I visited Rockland in August and found The Old Rectory (aka Rookery) on Bray’s Lane. I would love to access any records of deeds from 1932 and then later whenever it was that James Carruthers sold the place. They definitely lived in the house and not The Rookery on The Street which is referenced in the link. Thanks for any help.
