There is a family legend that my Great Grandmother and her family had passage booked on the Titanic out of Southampton, arrived from Scotland to do so, but were turned down as they tried to board. Travelling together were the mother Benjamina Halbert, and her children Jessie, Willie, David, Ben, and Isabelle. Here is the story as relayed in a family history: "There are two versions about the family missing the boat. One that their berths were cancelled because of applications of more more affluent passengers, the other that Isabelle had come down with a heat rash because her mother had bundled her up too warmly. The family was refused boarding passes because they thought Isabelle had the measles." They did depart on the next available ship, the SS Saturnia. Is there a copy of an original planned manifest for the sailing out of Southampton which may show their names as at least having been booked to travel? I understand that many people came out of the woodwork at the time and claimed to have "just missed it"; I am hoping to verify if possible the family story. If I am not able to, then I guess it will continue to be a legend! Thanks, Kevin.
