A local history group might be able to confirm whether immigrants took an overland route or not.

Hi Alan,

The Camp Bay referred to must be the one in Lyttelton Harbour.

Very interesting history, see

Ashley, it's quite possible that your ancestors walked over the hill into Akaroa with all their belongings. It was cheaper and safer.

However a search of Papers Past might find a record of them travelling there on a coastal vessel.

Hi everyone,

The linked passenger list below for the 1874 voyage of the Star of India does not include anyone named ROLFE, but it does list a family named PALMER, include an 11-year-old Philip PALMER.

I think this is the correct individual.

Did he sail with his relatives, perhaps, using their surname?
