Andrew and Michael Bolland

Classification: Query
Andrew (age 9) and Michael (age 7) Bolland appear in the 1871 Ontario census living in the Mount Hope Orphanage in London City, Ontario, Canada. They both were in born in Canada. Their father was born in Ireland, and their mother was born in Canada. I have been unable to find why the boys were in the orphanage, the names of their parents, or if there were more siblings. I don't know what became of Michael (he may have been adopted). Andrew appears in the 1880 Michigan census and married Mary Ann Quantz (Quance) in Lapeer, Michigan in 1881. They had six children, the first 5 born in Windsor, Essex County, Ontario, Canada, and the last born in Ohio, where they finally settled. If anyone can help me to find who their parents were and/or why they were in the orphanage, I'd be most appreciative.
Thank you.
