Barrow, Donald George Malet

Donald George Malet Barrow. He had been born 19 April 1888 in Steyning, Sussex. His parents seem to have been George Shuldham Malet, born about 1860 in Nottinghamshire and who in 1901 was living on his own means, and Mabel Charlton (nee Harmer; she had been born about 1866 in Hampshire) Barrow, who had married in the third quarter of 1886 in Monmouth. In 1891, the Barrows were living at Staunton, Monmouthshire, Wales. Donald’s brothers and sisters were Gerald O. M. (b. 1889), and Mabel C. (b. 1890). His grandmother Maria Barrow, born ca. 1800 in Suffolk, also lived with the family. In 1901, he lived in Monmouthshire.  A Donald Barrow, aged 21, came to Halifax, Canada, in April 1910 on the steamship Tunisian. He was bound for East End, Saskatchewan. This Donald Barrow may well have been the future Lusitania passenger. The Cunard Line listed his point of origin as Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. He married May Morgan 18 June 1914 at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. He survived the sinking of the Lusitania, but his wife was lost. He died in 1946 in Brighton, Sussex, England.
