Otago Witness  Saturday October 27, 1858  page 4 & 5

The "Agra," from London direct, arrived here on the 24th instant, after a passage of some 113 days. She has brought about 90 passengers, of whom 36 are cabin, and the remainder second and steerage, besides a considerable cargo of merchandise - all for this place. Very great dissatisfaction has been expressed at the treatment of the passengers during the voyage.

What was her name?
New Zealand Tablet
Dec. 16 1909 pg 15 Obituary 
Mrs John Hosty, Waikouaiti
There passed away on December 8, a very old identity in the person of Mr John Hosty, who resided at Waikouaiti for the last 42 years. She came to New Zealand in the ship Agra in 1858 with Mr Musgrove and family, and lived with them for some time at Milton. She was married in 1867 at Waikouaiti. Her husband survives her.

The NZSG Burial Index has John and Mary HOSTY buried in the Southern Dunedin cemetery. She was buried in 1909, age 79 years and he in 1912, age 82.
The NZSG Marriage Index has no record of a John HOSTY marriage, but it does have a John HASTY marrying a Mary DESMOND, 6 Feb. 1867. From the list of passengers on the 1858 voyage of the "Agra" there appears to be only one Mary, and that is Mary DESMOND.
