Prostitutes in Christchurch, New Zealand, 1867
I have been researching a couple of ships, the Brother's Pride and Lancashire Witch and both had women on board who were, or became prostitutes. The reasons why they took up the "world's oldest profession," are not always known, but some notes on the document, tell of tragic tales of women who needed to support themselves and had no other means. Others may have had parents that neglected to bring their daughters up with the appropriate morals needed to have dignity in society in those days! The following is a transcription of the document R22198680 held in Archives New Zealand, Christchurch. I hope it can be of help to other researchers. I have done the best I can with transcribing but some words may still be wrong. Please email me with any changes.
