“Knorr was a baby farmer* in Victoria, Australia. There were many bodies found in the backyard of Frances Knorr’s house in Brunswick, some which were obviously murdered, and some who probably died of neglect.” —extralatte5
*If you’re unfamiliar with the term, according to Encyclopedia.com, “Baby farming referred to a system (in the latter half of the 19th century) in which infants were sent away to be nursed and boarded by private individuals for either a flat, one-time fee or a weekly or monthly charge. Baby farmers, usually middle-aged women, solicited these infants through ‘adoption’ advertisements in newspapers, and through nurses, midwives, and the keepers of lying-in houses (private houses where poor, unwed women could pay to give birth and arrange for the transfer of their infants to baby farmers).”
