Today on facebook there was a fact on there that Thomas Andrews was the very first passenger from the southhampton port to board the Titanic on the day Titanic left on her maiden voyage . Is this true? If so , what time did he board? Just out of curiosity, does anyone know the name of the very last person ever to board the Titanic before she left Queenstown? Thanks for your time

Hi, Mark!

>Now, we have no evidence of Moody going below to >find the Carpenter

Perhaps he didn't. If Moody was on the forward well deck when he spoke with Evans, it occurs to me that Moody might have been there to observe the results of White's lantern-assisted examination of the ship's side. If that was indeed the case, Moody's order to Evans to find the carpenter was probably given without any knowledge of similar orders having been given elsewhere by other officers.

All my best,

George

He was educated at home by a private tutor until the age of 11. Then he attended the Royal Academical Institution, Belfast, where by all accounts he was more interested in sports than book learning. At the age of 16 he left school and began his real education - as an apprentice at Harland & Wolff.

The Andrews family were associated with the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church of Ireland. As the name suggests, this Church does not demand that its members subscribe to any particular set of doctrines, and many are Unitarians.

I don't think he had a middle name. Even in legal documents he is identified as Thomas Andrews (Junior).

I am out of here. Ask a simple question and get a rude response.

Walter---

What does your response mean? It's not at all clear.

Lynda---

Don't let one message put you off. There's plenty of information about Andrews here and if anyone knows the answer to your particular question, there will likely be more posted.

I've not heard what kind of music he liked, except that he liked it. Books - his favorite book, (according to the Shan Bullock biography) was "The Life of the Bee" by Maurice Maeterlinck. He was a devoted beekeeper, since childhood.

Get the Bullock book - it's great, if a trifle over-the top. He makes our Mr. Andrews look like a perfect human specimen. I'm sure the man had a flaw or two, but in general, he seemed to be a fair, honest, hard-working, much-loved gentleman.

I think you can read the book online. It's called "Thomas Andrews, Shipbuilder." Google it, it should be easy to find.
