Speakin' of Captain George Bowyer--I would like to know besides him and Captain Smith, who else was in Titanic's bridge, April 10, 1912.
I need this information for my "Bon Voyage, Titanic" - (Part 2) TITANIC-Touched By An Angel crossover fanfiction storyline. Either George or Captain Smith, are whom my angel James is suppose to report to.
Any help at all will be most appreciated. Thank you.
Mark, thanks for providing those additional details on Bowyer. The Bowyer family and their pilotage history are a fascinating part of Southampton history. It would be nice if those who ask questions acknowledged responses.
I`m a bit confused as to whether Boxhall was on the Docking Bridge or the actual Bridge itself.Though I think he was on the Bridge relaying Captain Smith`s and Pilot Bowyer`s orders to the Engine-Room.
According to Bowyer's autobiography Lively Ahoy he was born on the 16th October 1859. The place of his birth was called The Cottage, West Gate Southampton.
Another point people need to note down. His other relation in the family deals with his Uncle James. James Bowyer was also a Pilot and lived at Bugle House down Bugle Street, Southampton. Bugle House today is now occupied by the Southampton Chamber of Commerce.
Looking for Parents, Wives and Families of Pilot George Bowyer and his brother, James Bowyer,(also a Pilot, out of Southampton). Looking at possible relationship by marriage to White family of
Roehampton/Putney in 1890's.
I am a descendant of G W Bowyer. My mothers maiden name being Bowyer. We hail from a long line of navy based professions. I'm
actually on my way to Southampton today and can't wait to see him in the museum. I have a family tree on ancestry with the connections.
Enjoy your day at Southampton as there's loads ot explore. Another trip maybe required as George is buried at Barton-on-Sea. The coastline area holds a stunning view as directly opposite almost is the Isle of Wight. George would've known every inch of this coastline. He actully retired there and died there in 1945 whereas his birth Father and Mother are both buried at Southampton's Old Cemetery on The Common.
