George Müller cared for 10,000 orphaned children in Bristol during the 19th Century. He never made appeals for money, trusting implicitly in God, he received £1,500,000 in answer to prayer. At present day prices, this would be well over £86,000,000.
“Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.” (Psalm
Our extensive archives house records of all the orphans that were cared for in the Müller Orphan Homes in Bristol - over 17,000 of them.
We often receive requests from individuals who are tracing their family history and, at a small charge, we are able to provide information and photocopies of the admission and dismissal dates of the orphans. In addition, there is usually other information we can locate in our archives such as a record of family details and a correspondence file, although these differ per record.
These records do not form part of the public museum but can be viewed by arrangement. If you wish to arrange to view the records at our museum, please contact us to make an appointment. Please give us at least one week's notice to ensure that the museum is available and to give us enough time to prepare the records for you.
