William Clark

William Clark, 39, was born in 1876 in Greenore, County Louth, Ireland.

A newspaper report in 1914 suggested he had served during the Boer War.

In 1911 he was listed living at 30 Paget St, Southampton with his (?common-law) wife, Mary Jane Humphrey1.

When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6 April 1912 he gave his address as 30 Paget Street, (Southampton). His last ship had been the Avon. As a fireman he received monthly wages of £6.

Clark was rescued in Lifeboat 15.

He seems to have moved to Liverpool. 

He would also survive the sinking of the Empress of Ireland in 1914.

Notes

  1. Mary was married first to William Humphey and they had six children.
