This orphan has been claimed by: Deidre Ikin
I am claiming Jane Figg admitted to Queens Orphan School in 1835 at the age of 5 years, along with her sister Esther age 7. The record states their mother is Margaret Smith and father William Figg, a tailor in Launceston.
They were discharged into the care of Margaret Smith in 1838. It is interesting that my ancestor, Henry Robert Figg was born in 1835 in Clarence, Tasmania, the same year the girls were put into the orphanage.
My question arises from William Figg, who was born about 1797 in UK, and from the records I think he may have had a child to a woman called Mary Ann or just Ann. I cannot find any death records for William Figg.Â We have been told there is Aboriginal ancestry down the Figg family line but we do not know where.Â Please see orphan record number 1819 also. Any info would be great.

I work at Link Up in NSW and now dont take anything for granted doing searches, ie names, spelling, dates, marriages etc.
