Hi Alvin

I don't know whereabouts you are but the Scotland's People website is showing a relatively big D'Agrosa population with 26 deaths and 48 births between 1855 and 2006, and 8 marriages from 1855 to 1932. There are D'Agrosas on both the 1891 and 1901 censuses. They seem to have lived mostly in the south of Scotland.

Here are all the Ellis Island entries for D'Agrosa.
