Hi kiwithai,

I can see that Emma Gimber was born in Maidstone, Kent in 1844 and that she and Joseph married 1869, also Maidstone.  In 1871 Joseph is a sawyer and father of one year old Elizabeth.  Having trouble finding this family after 1871. 

I cannot see births for the other children you mention.

Earl Bruce Cook married Rudolfina Beatrix, surname Elisher or Markovic.  Probably she was either adopted or married previously.

Marriage transcribed twice to index possibly because of confusion with bride's surname.

https://familyhistory.bdm.nsw.gov.au/lifelink/familyhistory/search?4


17062/1962     
COOK    Earl Bruce    
ELISHER    Rudolfina Beatrix    
District Sydney

17062/1962     
COOK    Earl Bruce    
MARKOVIC    Rudolfina Beatrix
District Sydney

Transcriptions of certificates are available in NSW and much cheaper than a certified certificate.  Info on marriage certs includes names of bride's parents including mother's maiden name.

Request on Ancestry/rootsweb boards.  Just to save duplicating information.
