Agnes Davies - Titanic Second Class Passenger

Mrs Agnes Davies was a second class passenger travelling aboard Titanic with her 8 year old son John Morgan Davies, her 19 year old son Joseph Charles Nicholls, and a friend of the family Maude Sincock. They had boarded Titanic on 10th April 1912 at Southampton.

Agnes Davies was travelling to Houghton, Michigan, United States to join her other son Richard Henry Nicholls, where he and his wife had moved there not all that long before. Agnes Davies and her sons were to go to the same place to live.

Agnes Davies was born in Ludgvan, Cornwall, United Kingdom on 23 November 1861. She was married to Richard Henry Nicholls in 1886, and had three children, Mary Ethel Nicholls (born in 1886), Richard Henry Nicholls (born in 1890) and Joseph Charles Nicholls (born in 1892). Her husband appears to have died sometime no later than 1901. She remarried in around 1903, to Robert Davies (born in 1843), and had one son, John Morgan Davies, born on 31st July 1903. Her husband, Robert Davies, died in 1910.

At the time Titanic struck the iceberg she was in her cabin. She and her youngest son, John Morgan Davies, were rescued from Titanic (it is suggested they were rescued in Lifeboat 14). Her other son aboard Titanic, Joseph Charles Nicholls, was lost in the sinking. Maude Sincock was amongst those saved.

After the sinking, Agnes Davies continued with her plans to go to Houghton, Michigan, where she remained. She again remarried in 1921, this time to Richard Edwards (born in 1881)..

Agnes Edwards died on 4th August 1933.
