Name-ComRt. Hon. Sir Louis Henry Davies is commonly known as Louis.3,4 
Note*Louis Henry Davies was educated in city schools in Charlottetown, and then went on to study law. Davies was called to the Bar (Inner Temple) in London, England in 1866. Admitted to the Bar of the Province in Canada's Confederation Year of 1867, he established a legal practice in Charlottetown and maintained it for some years. While still a young lawyer, L.H. Davies served as the leading counsel for the tenantry before the Prince Edward Island Land Commission, which met in 1875 and 1876 to settle the problem of absentee land ownership and to provide tenants of the Island with clear title to their lands.

Davies entered politics as a Liberal, winning election in 1876. At that time the issue of denominational schools reached a climax and the political parties were split in the face of religious differences. Roman Catholics and Protestants split over the issue with no regard for official party lines.

In 1876, following the defeat of the Conservative Government of Premier L.C. Owen, Davies led a coalition of Protestant members to form a government in which he became Premier and Attorney-General. The coalition of Premier Davies had formed behind the promise of a Free School Bill and following the passage of this legislation, party loyalties once again rose to the surface.

Premier Davies, the third premier of Prince Edward Island following Confederation, effected many reforms in the Provincial Public Service and placed the province on a firm financial base during his term in the face of mounting opposition to the coalition government. In 1879, the Conservatives defeated the coalition and the Government was defeated on a motion of non-confidence.

In 1882, Premier Davies entered the field of Federal Politics, winning election to the House of Commons in that year. He remained a member of the Federal House until 1901 and served in the Cabinet of Sir Wilfrid Laurier as Minister of Marine and Fisheries. In 1897 L.H. Davies was knighted by Queen Victoria.

The Laurentic was immediately commissioned as a troop ship transport for the Canadian Expeditionary Force. After conversion to armed merchant cruiser service in 1915, it was sunk by two mines off the north coast of Ireland, 25 January 1917, with the loss of 350 lives. In addition to her passengers and crew, the ship was carrying about 35 tons of gold ingots, stowed in the second class baggage room. Valued at £5 million at the time, its value today (2011) would be about £816 million. Royal Navy divers made over 5,000 dives to the wreck between 1917 and 1924, recovering all but 1% of the ingots.
