I checked the record and I don't think she is the right Rebecca.   

On her admission and case  notes she is actually 45 with last address Hove near Brighton.  Her husband was Owen Park - listed with the same address.    Her case notes state she had one child aged 22 Walter Thomas Park and she sounds extremely disturbed so I am relieved she is not the right Rebecca.

word of warning when searching the Scottish records- especially the Scottish Borders

because of the traditions of name children it is very common for brothers to name their eldest 4 children the same and they could well be born around the same time - including using the same middle name - so check the records carefully - a niece/nephew could be visiting an uncle on the day of the census

this can also happen when dealing with family name over two generations, etc, for example  I have two Andrew Aitken's marrying a Helen (Nelly) Waldie - the two Andrew's are cousins and the two Helen's are Aunt & Niece, so they are a generation apart, so you have to check carefully

good idea to use maths for the women, if they have offspring.
