Where would I look to find information on someone who was in the Madras Male Asylum in 1830's & 1840's?
My GG Grandfather MATHEW THORNHILL was orphaned at age 7, in 1835. His father died in 1827 or 8 and was in the East India Company. He learnt the art of printing at the orphanage and emigrated to Australia at age 14.
Any help appreciated.
