Register of 18th century foundlings?

I have a direct ancestor in my partner's tree born circa 1792, presumably in London, and on the 1851 census he is described as a foundling.  As the common practice was to call them after the area they were found it seems feasible as his name was Saint, and was living in the City of London in St Bartholomew the Great in 1841.  Does anyone know of a register of foundlings in the City at that time?
