Hallo Mauro! I don't think the child that Violet Jessop looked after has been positively identified, although there have been candidates put forward.

I notice that you are from Argentina - Sixth Officer James Moody visited that country a few times in his earlier career, and was probably more fond of Buenos Aires than anywhere else in South America. One of his brothers lived there for a while.

Hello, Mauro, and welcome to ET.

Violet Jessop never married and remained childless. She has no direct descendants. She does however have two nieces in England.

Violet had no children, but for a brief period of her life she did have a husband. The marriage, it seems, was ill-considered and short-lived. She didn't see fit to mention it in her autobiography.

Bob, I agree, Sorry Kyrila, she was very briefly married to her Ned in the early 1920”s and after he died she spent the rest of her life alone,

Frank, I stand corrected. You're absolutely right - I had forgotten about her very brief marriage, but I was not aware - nor was John Maxtone-Graham (her biographer) that her husband's name was Ned...how did you find that out when John Maxtone-Graham couldn't even get the information out of her?

Bob,

Nice to hear from you, must meet and have a chat, I’m always at the Tollgate Surgery after 6pm. Just got back from Liverpool, last night, go once a year to clean and tidy up Hugh’s grave or Liverpool Council put a notice on it, they are very strict on graves not being kept tidy.

With Regards to Violet's marriage, this is what Margaret, her niece, told me, when I visited her in Ely, which would fit in with what Phil said, Ned was in the merchant navy, but I never knew he lived in Southampton. (Thanks for the info)

What Margaret told me I trust, after all she was entrusted with Violet's personal diaries.

It was not the boat I number 16 in which Violet profit to escape of the Titanic? and which before doing I rescue it to it drinks of which we do not have the identity. When looking for them in the list of this EXCELLENT Web it does not appear his name in boat 16.
A warm greeting to all!

I recently finished reading the autobiography of Violet Jessop, the stewardess from the Olympic and the Titanic as well as the nurse from the Britannic. All I can say is that her life was truly incredible. She came from almost dying as a child in Argentina to taking care of the richest people in the world on the ships of dreams.

Which brings me to this thought. Why has there never been a movie based on her life? To me this would be Hollywood (big or small screen) gold! Her complicated life, her thoughts on the rich, her actions during both sinkings and her rise from the ashes of both.

I think, if done right, it would be a box office success.

Yet, no movie and, what's worse, no mention in James Cameron's Titanic either. I believe that Cameron missed an incredible story.

What are your feelings on this? Should there be a movie on Violet Jessop's life? Or am I just painting an incredible picture of an unspectacular woman?

Your thoughts?

>>Why has there never been a movie based on her life?<<

Unless you can get Hallmark interested, my bet is that Violet Jessop was thought of as a blip on the radar screen and not good material for a story. I doubt if a lot of the Hollywood execs have even heard of her and those who have probably don't care. Miss Jessop did indeed have an interesting life in my opinion, but probably no more so then most others who made the sea their way of life one way or another.
