About Leonard Mark Hickman

Mr Leonard Mark Hickman, 24, from Fritham, Hampshire, England Leonard emigrated to Neepawa, Manitoba, in 1908, and had done well for himself working at nearby Eden as a farmhand for a wealthy mixed-grain farmer, Harold Honeyman.

Leonard went home to Fritham for Christmas in 1911 and persuaded the entire Hickman family of eleven to emigrate to Canada. Because of the coal strike, alternative passage was found for only three of the bothers - Leonard, Lewis and Stanley. They travelled with four companions from Fritham, Percy Deacon, Ambrose Hood, Charlie Davies and William Dibden on a single ticket number 14879 which cost £72 10s. They boarded the Titanic at Southampton as second class passengers.


Leonard Mark Hickman died in the sinking. At first it was thought that his body had been recovered (#256), it was only much later that this body was discovered to be that of his brother Lewis.
