Orphan Mary Marg. Dornan: age 4 in 1890 sent to Canada

This is my great great grandmother..........said to arrive in Canada as an orphan at age 4.......but we don't know from Ireland or Scotland: the English say no record of such a child being sent over.........

Thousands of children; orphaned, illegitimate or abandoned: were sent to Canada during these years and never heard or knew their families again.

Would anyone have any idea who this child might belong to?
