Confusion of families

Please be aware that there were two couples William and Eliza Dunk in New South Wales around the same time and many people have their trees and details mixed. The husbands came from the same district (Rother) in East Sussex. (They could have been cousins, but we do not yet know whether they were related.) Both couples had sons called William Henry Dunk, just to add to the confusion. See the disambiguation page William Dunk (disambiguation)!
