Julian Padron Manent

Mr Julian Padron y Manent, 26, was born in Cataluna, Spain on 26 May 1885, the son of Andres and Gertrudis. He worked as a chauffeur.

He boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a second class passenger (ticket number SC/PARIS 2146, £13 17s 3d) for part of his journey from Barcelona, Spain 1 to his home in Plaza del Valor, Havana, Cuba.

Mr Padron y Manent survived the sinking together with Mr Pallas . They were probably rescued in lifeboat 9.

He later married fellow survivor Florentina Duran y More. They had no children.

Florentina died in 1959 and Julian Padron Manent died on 6 October 1968 aged 83. The couple are buried in an elaborate mausoleum in Colon Cemetery, Havana.

Notes

  1. It appears from the "List or Manifest ..." that he had been visiting a Andres Refate (?) in Barcelona, his parents perhaps.

    I was discussing the movie Titanic with my mother when she told me something interesting. Julian Padro-Manent, a second class passenger on the Titanic, was a very close friend of my grandparents. I have a photograph of him at my christening in Havana, Cuba from 1961. He never married and had only one sister. My mother says he had a lovely photograph of the ship. I noticed you didn't have a lengthy biography on him. My mother remembers some of the stories he used to tell. Let me know if you would like any additional information on him. C. Downin Texas
