This orphan has been claimed by: Sandra Mackiewicz

James is my great great uncle: his niece was my grandmother. Along with 3 of his siblings, he spent time here. Both his parents were convicts, and his father died of Traumatic Tetanus in June 1864. Later that year, his deceased father's employer called for the children to be placed in the Queen's Orphanage because the family was destitute. His mother insisted all four of them be admitted, so they would all be together.  James is mentioned on the paperwork for initial admittance in 1864 at 6 weeks old (it did not proceed). I

In 1865, only his 8 year old brother Patrick was admitted. His mother was then given financial support from the Benevolent Society, so it was not 1870 when James was 6 years old that he entered the Queen's Orphanage, being admitted at the same time as his brother William (15 months his senior).  As well as the details mentioned in his profile above, he may have also have been charged with False Pretences in Bothwell in 1896, and have died in Hobart in 1930.
