This orphan has been claimed by: Sandra Mackiewicz

Patrick 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.  Patrick is mentioned on the paperwork for initial admittance in 1864 (it did not proceed). In 1865, only Patrick was admitted.

There is the possibility he may have been drawing a wage at the age of 9, prior to his admittance to the Queen's Orphanage in 1865. In 1870 he is listed as 14 years old and working in the Orphanage as an Officers Servant. We have more research to do, but he may have been the destitute labourer admitted to the New Town Infirmary Boys' Training Institute in 1917, and then died of heart failure and disease of the abdominal organs in New Norfolk in July 1917.
