Convict Orphans | Lucy Frost
2023 | Allen & Unwin |​

Many thousands of abandoned children were treated as free labour in late 19th century Australia, yet their stories have been hidden until now, even to their descendants. Lucy Frost's painstaking research has uncovered what really happened to the convict orphans.

All families have their secrets, and a convict ancestor or an illegitimate birth were shames that families once buried deep. Among the best-hidden stories in Australia's history are those of convict orphans.

Agnes arrived on a convict transport aged four, and was abandoned when her mother needed to escape an abusive husband. After their mother died and their father deserted his children, Maria and Eliza Marriner were taken into state care too. Cut off from family, behind the walls of the imposing sandstone buildings of the Queen's Orphan Schools, they were among hundreds of young children entrusted to the much-feared Matron Smyth.

At the age of twelve, the children left the orphanage to work without pay on farms and in homes-some of them places where no child should ever have been sent. Although colonists called it white slavery, the authorities turned a blind eye to what was really happening.

There are stories of abuse and abandonment, and also of great generosity and kindness from individuals who rescued and supported children. Some children managed to build happy lives for themselves, but many could not navigate a system stacked against them. There are disturbing parallels between the Queen's Orphan Schools in Hobart and other children's institutions in Australia into the 21st century.

'A beautifully written book detailing the evocative, heart-breaking stories of convict orphans painstakingly pieced together' - Associate Professor Tanya Evans

'A fascinating study, richly textured, and extremely well-researched' - Professor Barry Godfrey, University of Liverpool
