|Also known as:||Rooke, Beatrice|
|Place of Birth:||England|
|Biographical notes:||Beatrice arrived in the Territory in November 1887 and gave birth to her son one month later. She was one of 82 women who enrolled to vote in 1895 and registered as “mother of two and married to Randel Trevethan Green, a clerk at the lands office”. Beatrice was known for her hospitable nature. In 1894 the whole family was hospitalized with diphtheria, which threatened the community. Fortunately it was contained to the Greens and all recovered. Beatrice and her children suffered more hardship when Randel was found embezzling funds and served 18 months in Fannie Bay Goal. Randel died in 1907 of throat cancer, Beatrice remained in Palmerston until 1912.|
