Mrs William Robert Bucknell (Emma Eliza Ward), 60, boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg (ticket number 11813, £76 5s 10d, Cabin D-15) with her maid Albina Bazzani. She was travelling to her home in Philadelphia, PA.

Mrs Bucknell's husband was the founder of Bucknell College in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

While awaiting the Titanic on the Tender at Cherbourg Mrs Bucknell told Molly brown that she had "evil forebodings" that something might happen to the ship. Mrs Brown laughed but Mrs bucknell would have cause to remind her of her words only days later.

Mrs Bucknell and Ms Bazzani were rescued in lifeboat 8
