Mr Antonio Ferrary

Antonio Ferrary1 was born in Mexico in 1879. His father Louis was a butcher.

Antonio emigrated first to the US and then to the UK in the early 1900s - he does not appear on the 1901 UK Census.

On 24 Aug 1908 when 29 years old he married Annie Frances Foyle2. The marriage was conducted at the South Stoneham Registry Office. The marriage certificate lists Annie's father as a Master Plasterer and Antonio's profession as Plasterers Labourer. The couple lived at 19 Condor Road, Woolston then a suburb of Southampton.

The couples' first child George was born in 19093 and a second son Henry was born in 19114.

At the time of the 1911 Census the family were living in three rooms at 7 Condor Road. The Census form was completed and signed by Annie and she listed Antonio's forename as Thomas and said he was a US resident. It is likely that she did this either to avoid predudice or for work permit reasons. Antonio was still working as a Plasterer`s Labourer.

By 1912 when Antonio signed on the Titanic the family had moved to 38 St Mary's Place, Chapel, Southampton.  Before joining the Titanic his previous ship was the Oceanic.

He died in the disaster and his body was not recovered.

Following the disaster Annie Ferrary remarried in 1916 to Albert Charles Pope5 and had three further children.
