This orphan has been claimed by: Deb Duckworth

I am currently research the life of Joseph Duckworth b 1824 Lancashire, died 1887 Hobart.  Married Ann Keegan in 1855 in Oatlands.  I have just discovered by chance that some of their children were put in an orphanage.  Any information you can provide me with would be very much appreciated.

With thanks and kind regards
