Today I have been through all of my previous post-hopefully- to see if I did in fact post this before. If I missed it please forgive me & just skip over I just managed to delete part of the record I'd saved for a Baptism in Feb. 1939 but found this for same person with same sponsors. In trying to find the 1839 baptism of my Gt. G'Mother, from Cork- [according to her marriage certificate,] I came across one for a foundling child baptised in 1838 giving names of sponsors- a Silvester Murphy & Kate Duggin.'Pike' written in next column, seemingly for areas. [My Gt.G'Mother arrived alone in Australia -it is said- in 1855, aged 16.] How would anyone research this child? Would she have been placed in a foster home or Orphanage? Are there available records for such a search?
