Miss Marjorie Charlotte "Lottie" Collyer
Miss Marjorie Charlotte Collyer, 8, was born in 1904 in Bishopstoke, Hampshire, England, the daughter of Harvey Collyer and the former Charlotte Annie Tate.
The family boarded the Titanic at Southampton, they were travelling to Payette Valley, Idaho, USA.
Charlotte and Marjorie were probably rescued in lifeboat 14 but Harvey died in the sinking. After their arrival in New York Charlotte and Marjorie were approached by Newspaper reporters to tell their story, Marjory's account (reprinted in a local English paper) appears to have received the attention of a Brooklyn Daily Eagle reporter:
Charlotte and Marjorie eventually returned to Bishopstoke. Charlotte remarried but died in 1914 from Tuberculosis, Marjorie was made a ward of court and went to live with her uncle Walter on his farm at East Horsley, Near Leatherhead, Surrey. The arrangement did not work well but she remained there until she married Roy Dutton (on 25 December 1927), who was a mechanic.
Marjory Collyer Dutton died (? in Gosport, Hampshire) on 26 February 1965, aged 61. She had been a widow for some years after her husband died young.
