    Immigration 11 Jul 1874  Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia Find all individuals with events at this location  [4, 5, 6, 7
    Bridget and Margaret Wall arrived at Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia aboard the ship "Agra". They were assisted immigrants, which means, they were required to work where directed, in the state of Queensland. I would assume, they would have worked their two years in the Rockhampton Area as domestic servants. 
    • The date on the passenger list is incorrect. The document records the arrival date at Rockhampton as the 11 June 1874. The vessel actually arrived 11 July 1874. The attached newspaper articles record the correct date. I spoke with Queensland State Archives about this and they were aware of the error. I was advised that the state archives were inundated with water during the floods in the 1890s and a lot of records were water damaged and these records were recopied and numerous errors exist in them. the Archivist told me they are unable to alter the dates on the records as they are historical documents.
