This orphan has been claimed by: Lesley French

Elken is the sibling of my great grandfather Thomas Finn who was also at the Orphans School along with their brother Luke. They were the children of Catherine Finn (Maloney) who was forced to leave them at the Orphans School as her husband had drowned in the Huon River and she was destitute.
