The story of: Alfred William Lee, 19, labourer, ticket 99 in steerage.
Admin note: I have not yet been contacted by any Lee descendants. I have created this page to hold various news articles and family notices. In one article Alfred, a master baker (father William Lee, mother Charlotte Jude), reminisces about travelling with brother Arthur. The various shipping lists show Arthur/Anthony (first name differs across the 4 lists), 26, labourer, travelling with Elizabeth, 26, William, 3 and Alfred, 1 on ticket 9 in steerage.
There was also another Lee family on board - I have not yet ascertained if they were related. Travelling on ticket 14 in steerage - Andrew, 27, labourer, Mary, 27, David, 6, Margaret, 4, Isabella, infant.
