This orphan has been claimed by: Heather Cartledge

George Cook arrived on the Hydery in 1832 with his Mother Mary and 3 other siblings.

Iam very keen to hear from anyone who may be researching the "Cook" family - as to date I have not been able to find what happened to any of the children and their life in Hobart - especially interested to know what happened to George Cook after leaving the Orphan School.
