  • ADMINISTRATIVE/ BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY

    The Male Orphan School, established by Governor Macquarie, was opened in 1819 in the building in George Street, Sydney which had previously housed the Female Orphan School. In 1824 the boys were moved to a new school on a farm in that part of the Liverpool district which would later become Bonnyrigg. The School was governed by the Clergy and School Lands Corporation and from 1833 came under the control of the Colonial Secretary.
    Irish-born Richard Sadleir, formerly a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, emigrated to New South Wales in 1826 and was Master of the Male Orphan School from 1829 until 1850 when the school was closed and the boys relocated to the Female Orphan School at Parramatta.
