The Local Passengers

Totnes Times & Devon News

The Countess of Rothes, who was on board the Titanic, which has sunk in the North Atlantic, is among the passengers reported as safe. She is a daughter-in-law of Mrs. Leslie-Leslie, of Adelphi Terrace, Paignton.
Definite information on the subject is, of course, not easily obtainable, but it has been ascertained that Mr. Forbes Julian, of Redholme, Torquay, Col. Weare (sic), and Mr. Summerwood, of Dunmere Road, had taken passages. The first two travelled together.
By an unfortunate mischance, Mr. Robert Nosworthy, of Fisher Road, Newton Abbot, became a passenger on the ill-fated vessel. Mr. Nosworthy emigrated, and contemplated joining his uncle in Buffalo, New York State, U.S.A.
He booked his passage upon the other White Star leviathan, the Olympic, and the week before last left Newton to join that vessel at Southampton. He got as far as Exeter, but then found that owing to the disarrangement of the railway traffic through the coal strike he would not be in time to catche the vessel, and returned to Newton.
His passage was then transferred to the Titanic, upon which he sailed last week.
