Charles Henry Davies

Mr Charles Henry Davies was born 2 March 1893 at Brook Hill Bramshaw, Hampshire.1

He was the eldest child of Ernest Davies (b. 1865), a farmer, and Edith Biddlecombe (b. 1867), both Bramshaw natives who had married in 1892. He had three siblings: Arthur Frank (b. 1894), Robert Edward (b. 1897) and Elsie May (b. 1900).

The family are living at an unspecified address in Bramshaw on the 1901 census and later at Brook Hill, Bramshaw on the 1911 census. On the latter record Charles is described as a general domestic servant.

Davies boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a second class passenger (joint ticket number 14879 which cost £73, 10s) and he was travelling with Ambrose Hood, William Dibden, Percy William Deacon, Leonard Mark Hickman , Lewis Hickman and Stanley George Hickman, all from the same locale. He was travelling to Eden, Manitoba.
