This orphan has been claimed by: Bronwyn Smith

My great  grandmother Selina Butler married William Ward in 1874.  She was an orphan at the Queens Orphan School in 1858 and left in 1859.  Her mother and father were unfit to look after her and I would like to know her lifestory.  I do have her history on her marriage and subsequent children, one of them being my grandmother Selina Pearl Ward who married Edward Mc Mahon.  All this occurred in Tasmania.  Edward and Selina Pearl lived in Queenstown Tasmania and their seven children (including my mother Daphne) were born there.  Any information would be helpful.   Thankyou and regards Bronwyn Smith.  Orphan no. 716.
