This orphan has been claimed by: Pamela Sonneman

My name is Pamela Sonneman.  The mother of James Stevenson, Mary Stevenson is my great great grandmother. Mary was married to Franklin Stevenson in Ireland and had James and Richard. Both the boys were sent with Mary to Van Diemans land in April 1841, and placed in the Orphanage. James was discharged to John Adams of whom Mary lived with and they had a daughter Elizabeth who is my great grandmother. I don't know what happened to the boys but they were living with John Adams and Mary in 1848 in 86 Argyle St Hobart.
