This orphan has been claimed by: Tina Curtis

Edward Frederick Baker when he grew up was a carpenter in Launceston, Tasmania. He lived many years at 50 Garfield Street, Launceston and was married to Marianne Lyle. His daughter Amelia (Emmie) Baker married William Oscar Curtis. Amelia and her sister Margaret (Maggie)'s photo as well as William Oscar Curtis can be found in the Launceston Family Album website photos taken for the Launceston International Exhibition. It is possible, though not confirmed, that both entries for Edward Baker at the Orphan School refer to the same child.
