Australian Rolls-Royce historian David Neely published a long, detailed history of E E Agate in the December 2002 issue of Praeclarum, the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club of Australia journal. This is a brief precis.

Englishman Ernest Edwin Agate arrived in Sydney in 1886 aged 25, a qualified coachbuilder, and worked at first for Clyde Engineering and also the Sydney Omnibus Co, After two shortlived partnerships, set up on his own in 1892. At this time he was involved in buggy and cart building, but as the market shifted from horse-drawn to motor vehicles, so did E E Agate. By 1920 he was listed as a motor body builder. He died in 1930. The business does not seem to have survived him.
