    Immigration 11 Jun 1874  Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    Margaret, accompanied by her younger sister, Bridget, arrived Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia, 11 June 1874, aboard the immigrant ship "Agra". They were assisted immigrants, which means they paid a One pound fee and worked the remainder of their fair off over a two year period. They would have agreed to go to where ever the Queensland Government deemed them to go. Considering their port entry was Rockhampton, I would assumed they worked for two years in the Rockhampton area, probably as domestic servants, and later moved to Sydney.
