Charles J. Savage

Wasn't Mr. Savage a Steward? In which case I remember reading something on him, describing on how he had a pistol on the ship.

Hi Christine C

My Grandmother had some recollections, that were jotted down some years ago, about her Uncle Charlie (Charles J Savage). Charles is believed to have married an American, Monica Hollis, who had lived with him for a long time first as she was already married.

I have a family photo of Charles with his sister Mrs Siebert at 'Geikil', Croft Rd, Withdean, Brighton it is undated but probably taken in late 1930s or early 1940s.

I dont know much else about Charles J. Savage, except that he was the son of Stephen Charles Savage and Eliza Alice Savage nee Woods and as a young man is believed to have been a prominent player with the Brightlingsea Football Club.

In my notes I have also found a transcription of an article in the 'Colchester Gazette' for April 24th 1912, page 4 which stated ' Mr Stephen Savage of Brightlingsea, has received a message from his son Charles - one of the crew of the Titanic, who was first reported lost stating he is alive and well, but that his brother in law, Mr Seibert, is amongst the missing. The latter leaves a widow and one child. Charles Savage is returning home in the "Lapland". '

I hope the above makes sense, although it doesn't seem as if it is the same person, which is a shame as I would as like to know what became of him.
