Would appreciate any guidance regarding establishing what orphanages were operating in the Glenorchy area around 1835. Esther Walker's husband James a soldier in the Royal Veteran Corps from England died in 1835 and left her homeless with 6 young children. Days after James death a daughter Ann was placed in an orphange, leaving Esther with baby Mary and 3 year old Jane. Months later Ann was returned to Esther and 18 months later John, James and William were returned to their mother.
Can anyone suggest what records or publications I could read to find out what orphanages they may have been placed in.
