Searched by Jill Christensen SOG London 2011

Birth shown in I G I abt 1756 recorded in London.

William was sent to England and attended Harrow School:
Julius William, Monitor 1770-71. Son of William Julius snr. of St Kitts born Sept 1755. Harrow School Register (1571-1800) publ 1934 W.T.J. Gunn F.R.H.S.

He was admitted to Lincolns Inn 29th Jan 1772, described as eldest son William Julius of Imley Park Northamptonshire Esq.
Ref: Lincolns Inn Admission Register 1420 - 1893. Folio 182 Pg 140

Disinherited by his father possibly as he had taken Holy Orders in preference to a legal career and preached in a radical manner. Went with Dr. Parr to Stanmore as first head of his school there in Holy Orders, assistant to Parr at Colchester School.

Author in 1779 of a "Fast Sermon" dedicated to the American Congress, and denouncing the tyranny of the British King and Parliament.
Ordained and instituted by the Bishop of London, to the living of St. Anne, September 21, 1781, Sandy Point, St.Kitts, and later to the Parish of St, Pauls Cabesterre 1792 - 1810. He is not mentioned in his fathers Will, but he had Estates which he left at his death to his relative, The Honourable Jedediah Kerie, late of St. Kitts and now of Bath. Mr Kerie had married his cousin Elizabeth Mary, daughter of Mr Julius, President.

There is a note in the papers at S.O.G. (probably the Society of Genealogists London: ELF 1999) to the following effect."Letter from Margaret Ramsey 1780 at Cayon on St.Kitts to her father, the Rev. Jas R of H.M.S. Sandwich, refers to the death of Mr JULIUS whose widow says he disinherited his eldest son but had done well for the others. Phills papers"
This eldest son may well be Rev. WILLIAM JOHN JULIUS. He may also have offended his father by preaching what may have seemed a seditious sermon in 1779. He did not return to the West Indies until after his fathers death.

Sharon Oddie-Brown writes:
This History of the Jackson Family was compiled by AMY LLOYD, a daughter of Sir Thomas Jackson. It was done in 1951 and is regrettably without sources (for the most part). I have copied only the portions which have not been superceded by other research. This is the second such section. Note: I am unsure who wrote this section compiled by Amy Lloyd, but it would seem it was written by Louisa Carolina Dare, a daughter of Phocian Dare - who according to a family tree done by Brian MacDonald was indeed the third son of Thomas Dare & an Unnamed Rose.
THE DARE FAMILY from Amy Lloyd's Jackson Family History The Dares were originally of the Noblesse of France in Languedoc. our ancestors fled to England with 49,000 emigrants in the year 1685 when the Edict of Nantes persecution of Huguenots took place. Our ancestors brought their money with them, settled and became a leading county familv in Dorsetshire . My grandfather Dare married about the year 1759-60 a Miss Rose, first cousin of the Duke of Bedford, grandfather of the Earl of Russell. On the birth of my father (the 3rd son of the Dare-Rose marriage), the Duke was Godfather and gave him the name of Phocian*. He lived at Woodford Park, Dorset. In those days Politics ran very high - my father was a Tory and the other a red hot Whig. This severed the connection, and so it remained. My Grandfather had no profession. My father was a doctor. Phocian Dare married a sister of William John Julius of Richmond Palace, called Louisa Caroline. William Julius was a physician to the King. Phocian was born in March 1763 and died in 1824. His wife died in 1845. They had six children: Jane Adelaide, born 1797, died 1872. William, born 1798, died in Bengal, 1820. Louisa Caroline, born 1802. Fanny born 1803, died 1825. John Julius born 1805, married 1840, died 1850. George Julius born 1807, married 1839, died 1856, buried Nuns 11 . Head Cemetary, Upper Clacton. He was the father of Amelia Lydia Dare who married Thomas Jackson. The above Louisa Caroline Dare married William Loader 1800, and had one child, a girl Louisa Augusta 1822 who married Digby Gerahty,1851. Louisa Caroline Dare married for a second time Paul Mildmay Pell. (Copy of letter to George Dare [brother of Amelia Lydia Jackson] by "Aunt Pell". ) MY NOTES: I assume this to be Louisa Carolina, b. 1802, d.1878. Also, with respect to: "The above Louisa Caroline Dare married William Loader 1800" - I suspect this date to be a typo in Amy Lloyds's original document. The date of 1820 would be more logical (thanks to Wendy JACK for pointing this out to me). Doctor John Julius Dare was the elder brother of George Julius who was the father of Amelia Dare. He married Antoinette St. Felix, daughter of a French emigre, after the French Revolution. He was physician to the King of France. They had two sons, John and George, and three daughters, Sarah, Louise and Jane. John had one son and two daughters; he and his son after him had business in Demerara. George had one son and one daughter and had business in Singapore. George Julius Dare married Sarah Shrieve Parke in 1839. He was in the Royal Navy and when his ship was in Capetown, met Sarah Parke of Newlands, Rondebosch. She and her sister were married on the same day, the sister to Captain Sedgwick of the ship "Addingham". Among the visitors present were Sir Harry and Lady Smith. Soon after his marriage, George Julius left the Navy to command a ship in the fleet of his uncles who were trading in the East. He became a partner and his headquarters were in Singapore. When they had two children, his wife went out to join him in the sailing ship "Viscount Melbourne", she was the only woman on board. A few days out from Singapore the ship was wrecked on the Luconia Shoal in the China Sea. Everyone abandoned ship in rive boats. They were attacked by pirates but managed to get away, and after great hardships in an open boat for thirteen days, were picked up and brought to Singapore. The youngest son, Julius, was thought dead and nearly dropped in the sea but the ship came just in time. Years after in Japan she died nursing him of cholera end both were buried in the Cemetary at Yokahama in 1879. The family returned to England from Singapore when Captain Dare was suffering from severe blood poisoning of the hand. They lived at Upper Clapham till he died. His widow then went back to South Africa with seven of her children, leaving George and Julius the two eldest who were at school, with their Aunt Pell. They afterwards went out to Singapore in business , and later to Japan where their mother and remaining unmarried children joined them. Children of George Julius and Sarah Shrieve 1.

Male Dares Living: Alfred had 3 sons, Julius, Norman and Harold. Julius had 2 sons, 1 killed flying in war. Harold had a son, George, by first marriage, and two sons by second marriage. All living.
From Anglo--American Records Foundation New York "The first American born of English parents was Virginia Dare born Virginia on August 18th, 1587."
Sarah Shrieve Dare (born Parke) was returning from her visit to South Africa on board the ship "Elizabeth Martin" The crew mutinied and put the captain in irons. Her English nurse, Caroline, remonstrated furiously with the crew and said: "You can have as many mutinies as you like later, but I will not allow a mutiny when my babies are on board." This so amused the crew that they made terms and the mutiny ended.

JULIUS JOTTINGS. April 1900 No 2.
REMINISCENCES OF GEORGE CHARLES JULIUS. 1773 - 1866
We are indebted to Mrs Arabella E PARKINSON (nee Quilter) for the following: Some of my happy early days were spent at the Old Palace, Richmond, Surrey. (My grandfather) used often to take me out with him on his rounds.
When driving to Kew we sometimes met the King, who would stop his carriage and say, " Dr. Julius, there is nothing in the window,"or,'' Yes, you must call today and enquire" This alluded to a piece of putty placed as a signal to save my grand father's time, and that he might know he was, or was not wanted, and His Majesty George IV., being of an inquisitive turn of mind amused himself by watching this signal and making enquiries. Many of (my grandfather's) patients lived in Richmond Park, Lord Sidmouth and others and I have read there by moonlight whilst waiting for him.
One old countess used to accuse him of neglecting her, if her bill did not come to 100 pounds per annum. Another of his lady patients, also a countess, never paid him at all, but left the matter to her executors, and it then came to 700 pounds.
He was the most punctual of men, and when he rang, as was his custom, every morning for family prayers, we had only time to rush from the landing to the dining room, or we should be too late. He scarcely ever missed church, and his behaviour in it was most devout. Of course, with his large practice, the largest, I believe, out of London, he was often called away, and his footman was told to stand in one place in the porch where he could see him, and so come away without alarming or disturbing the congregation. He was a most temperate man, drinking only water, and as a rule no food between breakfast and late dinner. He had a weakness for sugar, and often brought me a piece from someone's basin, left, I suppose, on purpose for him.
I remember often seeing Sir Benjamin Brodie at my grandfather's, and one thing they said made a lasting impression on my young mind:-" It is such a comfort, when we lay our heads on our pillows at night, to feel how much we have done for our fellow-creatures during the day."

It would appear that George Julius, and Arthur George Onslow, 3rd Lord Onslow were friends, and this association continued with George's son Frederick.
This note relates to a French snuff box given to George:
"For my very good and excellent friend Mr George Julius in testimony of my sincere regard and high esteem for him"
Onslow.
(The Onslow family had a connection with New Zealand, the 4th Lord being a Governor, in 1892 he bought back to Clandon Park,West Clandon, SRY, a Maori meeting house (Hinemihi) which had survived the Mt Tarawera eruption. 2000
)

THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXTRACT FROM "GENEALOGY" BY FLORENCE STEVENS.
Chapter VII. We now turn to the history of the sixth child of William and Jane Julius. This was George Charles, and well do I remember him A tall stately old man, with very white hair, blue eyes and a rather shambling gait. "The Doctor" he was always called by his family.
He could be severe and some people were rather afraid of him. He was 6 feet, spare and abstemious. He was born on June 6th 1775 in the Island of St. Kitts and accompanied his parents to England in 1779, as did also his eldest sister Jane, then 22 years old and Robert and Nancy, and possibly his two other sisters. After his fathers's death a year later, his mother moved to 15, Pritchard St. Bristol.
George Charles was sent to Eton* as his father's Will provided. Money matters were not easy when he grew up rumour says owing to the dishonesty of Trustees, and whether he went to Cambridge or not is not certain.
It was imagined by the family that he was sent to the Rev Jonathan Gilder, Rector of Aspeden in Herts. to be tutored, but a comparison of dates shews that it could not have been the case as George Charles Julius was only about 11 or 12 when Jonathan Gilder died in 1787.
George Julius soon settled his domestic life by marrying at the age of 20 one of Gilder's daughters Isabella Maria, aged 21. It was an early but very happy marriage. This was in the year 1795, just when Napoleon was beginning his stormy career and disturbing the peace of Europe, and this doubtless affected the Julius finances.
We do not know how early he determined to become a Doctor, but in 1796 he was attending Sir Astley Cooper's lectures in St. Thomas's Hospital. He received his Certificate from Sir A. Cooper in May 1796 and in July his first child Emily was born at Bristol.
The young couple decided on venturing to India where George was certain of a practice, leaving the baby Emily in charge of her, grandmother and Aunt Jane in Bristol. It must have been a real adventure in those days of Anglo Indian life. One of Mrs. Julius sisters accompanied them, and they remained in India till 1809 when little Emily always nicknamed "Pem" was about 13 years old.
When they returned to Europe in 1809 the European war was in full swing and they could only travel with a convoy. The story is current that when Dr. Julius had taken tickets for the voyage he went off up country to settle business and during his absence his wife met the Captain of the vessel who swore so dreadfully at every turn that she could not travel with him and cancelled the agreement, getting tickets on another boat. During the voyage a terrible , storm came on near the coast of Africa, and the ship, which I believe was the Chichester in command of the swearing Captain, went down with all on board including 250 children.
The vessels stopped at St. Helena for some days on the way home, and some of the family went on shore. I subjoin the copy of a bill sent in to Mr. Julius. Bill made out to Dr. G. C. Julius when stopping at St. Helena on his way from India in 1809.
Probably William did not land as he was only two years

Apologies for the delay in replying . . . . .
He does not seem to have attended Eton, though I have to say that before 1791 we do not have a complete list of boys, so it is possible he did come here but no lists survives for the period of his stay. However, he did not attend King's either, which in those days was almost entirely the preserve of Etonians, so I suspect that his father's Will was not followed in this repect.

JULIUS JOTTINGS, JANUARY 1900. No 1.
Grandpapa was a very fine old gentleman, over 6 foot, with marked features and rather a stern face, but a pleasant smile, and stately, courteous manners of the old school. Granny as she was fondly called by her devoted grandchildren, was of medium height, in the youth had auburn hair, was gifted with a keen sense of humour, and found a fund of stories to which it was our great delight to listen.
My earliest recollection of Grandpapa and Granny was on the occasion of a family dinner at the Old Palace, about the year 1850, near Christmas. The Archibald Julius and two of their children were there, the Fredericks and several of their party, Edric and Herbert Julius, Cameron Quilter, and many more.
The three latter dressed up as old women, and were most amusing; we also had a Punch and Judy show, the first I had ever seen. Such large family gatherings seem now to be things of the past. The next time I remember to have seen Granny was when she came to stay with us at Wrecclesham Vicarage. It was very hot weather, and during the absence of nurse from the room, my elder sister and I took off the baby's things, got our paint boxes, and painted her in rainbow coloured stripes. I shall never forget Granny's peels of laughter when the infant was brought for her to inspect.
When Grandpapa was a boy he was heir to considerable property, but his trustees were dishonest, and by the time he became of age it had melted away. He was sent to he tutored by the Rev. Jonathan Gilder, Rector of Aspeden, Hertfordshire, and Vicar of Layston, and he married one of the daughters; she was aged twenty one and he twenty; they were married on the 14th September 1795, and went to India in 1799. . . . . (Story about Isabella saving an Indian woman from sati). . . . .
On an occasion when he was in India Grandpapa was invited to a feast given by some native chiefs. At the last minute he was called away to visit a patient. Every European at that meal died from poison within a few hours!
When they left India Grandpapa took tickets for the passage on board the "Chichester" (this, I believe, was the ship) then went up country to wind up his business. During his absence Granny heard a very bad report of the captain, that he ill-treated his men and could not speak without an oath. She determined she would not travel in his ship, so she took tickets in another which sailed under the same convoy; it was in the time of war with the French. Of course Grandpapa was very vexed and angry at such a whim. However, Granny had her own way.
The vessels sailed, a party of about five ships. There was a fearful storm off Mauritius, and the "Chichester' went down. There were 250 children on board, being sent home by their parents, five of one family well known to the Julius.
In 1810 they settled in Bristol, and in 1814 came to the Old Palace, Richmond where they lived forty one years, and Grandpapa became partner to Sir David Dundas, who lived at Queensberry House and attended the Royal Family then living at Kew. George the IVth gave Grandpapa some candlesticks, silver plated on copper, which are now in the possession of his granddaughter, Mrs. Hull, of Earls Mount, Redhill.
Part of this time his eldest son, Dr George Julius, was practising with his father, and for his services to a young Princess was presented by King William the IVth with a silver vase, dated September 18, 1833, which is now in the possession of his grandson, Bertie Julius, of Tilford.
Of my grandparents interesting circle of friend, during these years, others are more competent to speak than I, but I observed in the memoirs of the late Canon Hoare that he reckoned them among his special friends.
In 1855 they retired to Wrecclesham, as they thought, for good, but Grandpapa missed the life and smooth pavements of a town, so in 1862 they once more moved, this time to St. Leonards, where, at Maze Hill House there days were ended. He died in 1866 at the age of 91, and she in 1867 in her 93rd year. They were buried in the churchyard at Hollington. The last remaining of their children, Aunt Annie, widow of Colonel Deverill, died in May 1898 aged 84.
Wishing that this brief fragment had been more complete,
I remain, dear Editor,
Yours faithfully,
M. Louisa Brewin.

NOTES BY MRS JENIFER SHELLSHEAR, (nee Julius).
George spent his early childhood in the West Indies. He was in England when his father died. In 1792, the Edinburgh University Medical School records describe him as "of Somerset," so until then he may have been living with his mother in Bristol. He studied at Edinburgh 1792-95, though apparently he did not graduate. Then from 27th Sept 1795 for a period of perhaps 12 months, he acted as dresser to the surgeon. Mr Henry Cline.
About a year later 10th July 1797 George was appointed Ass. Surgeon to serve in the Bengal Presidency by the Honourable East India Company. He returned to England on furlough in 1809, returning finally in 1812. During his time in India, 5 more children were born, one of whom, a son, died there. The Missionary Chronicle of March 1821 affords a small glimpse of the family's life in India, describing how Mrs. Julius while stationed at Arrah in 1804, courageously saved the life of an Indian women who was being forced to commit suicide.
In 1810 George settled in Bristol, then by 1812, seems to have established himself at the Old Palace, Richmond where for sometime he was partner to Sir. DAVID DUNDAS also practicing in Richmond. On 9th July 1812 was appointed apothecary to the King's Household at Kew, a post he held till 1836, thus serving George III, George IV, William IV.
During the years he attended the Royal Family, several pieces of plate etc. were variously presented to him by King George IV and King William IV, and are now in possession of various members of the family. He was apparently successful and well liked and with one of the largest practices outside London.
He worked in Richmond until his retirement in 1855.

RICHMOND PALACE - THE MEMORIES OF CHURCHILL JULIUS.
Extract from "A Power in the Land" by G.&A. Elworthy.
"The little garden attached to the house opened into the beautiful garden at the Old Palace, being a portion of the ancient Palace of Sheen built by Henry VII, in which Queen Elizabeth lived and died.
Of the State Apartments nothing is left. The part in which we lived, rented by my grandfather, GEORGE CHARLES from the Government on a 99 year lease at about 1814, was known as Wardrobe Court". Even today, when the house which once belonged in its entirety to the Julius family is now divided into three residences, the atmosphere is as redolent of history as it ever was, and by the courtesy of the present owners we were able to see for ourselves some of the magnificence that still remains. The beauty of the paneling, the charm of the garden, the sunlight slanting through the vast windows- such impressions give one the feeling of having stepped momentarily into the past. Wardrobe Court, dating back to the 15th Century when it served as the wardrobe of Henry VIIs Richmond Palace, was originally built with heavy timbered exterior walls.
Christopher Wren, in about 1730, completely enclosed the original building. Richmond Palace is rich in history, having been originally a royal residence in the time of Edward I. Anne, consort to Richard II died here in 1394; deeply affected by her death, the king, according to Holinshead, caused the palace to be thrown down and defaced. Henry V, however, restored it to its former magnificence. Henry VII, in 1492 held a Grand Tournament there. In 1499 it was almost consumed in fire, but Henry rebuilt the palace and gave it the name of Richmond.
Cardinal Wolsey frequently resided here; and Hall, in his Chronicles, says that "when the common people, are especially such as had been servants of Henry VII, saw the cardinal keep house in a manor royal at Richmond, which that monarch so highly esteemed, it was a marvel to hear how they grudged saying". " So the butcher's dogge doth lie in the manor of Richmond!" Queen Elizabeth I was a prisoner at Richmond during the reign of her sister Mary; after she came to the throne, the palace was her favourite residence, and here she died in 1603.
On an exterior wall, we are reminded that Upon this site formerly stood the Palace of Richmond built by Henry VII in 1501. A Royal Residence first occupied this site in 1126 The village of Richmond was originally known as Sheen.

THE TIMES - Saturday January 24 1824 pg. 4 col. c.
"Extensive Robbery - Between five and eight o'clock on the evening of Tuesday last, the house of George Charles Julius Esq., at Richmond, was burglariously entered, and robbed of a check for L.200, some Edinburgh one pound notes, a twenty-pound and ten-pound note of the Bank of England, and several five pound notes, a large number of sovereigns and some silver, a sealed letter containing a fine-pound note, and several sovereigns, with which the robbers got clear off".

Queen Square.
Yesterday information was received at this office that on the evening of Tuesday last, the house of George Charles Julius, Esq, Richmond, Surrey, was broken into by thieves, and robbed of property to the amount of several hundred pounds. The robbers effected an entrance at the back of the premises, and in the first instance rifled all the cupboards, closets, etc, below stairs, from thence they proceeded to the parlour, and forced open the bureaus, desks, etc, and took away a red morocco leather pocketbook, similar to those used by Bankers clerks, which contained a cheque drawn by Dr Willis on Messrs Drummond and Co., for L200, also some Edinburgh L1 notes, of the house of Forbes and Co., a Bank of England note for L20, some for L10, and several for L5. They also found a long striped green bag full of sovereigns, and a bag of silver, together with a letter from Mr Erskine, sealed, in which was enclosed a L5 note. A full description of all the property stolen has been given to the police, and a reward of L50, is offered for the apprehension of any of the robbers, who as yet have evaded pursuit.
Ref: Morning Chronicle Saturday, 24 January 1824.

Daring Robbery.
Information was yesterday lodged at the Mary-le-bone Police Office of an extensive robbery, in the house of Mr George Charles Julius, at Richmond. Hawker, the officer, was dispatched to make enquiries, and, on his return, stated to the magistrates, that the thieves, by some means unknown (it is supposed by seizing the advantage of the Hall door being left open, and opening of the library door with a false key), plundered some of the drawers, etc, of the following cash and notes; a cheque for L200 on the Bank of Messrs Drummond and Co., drawn by Dr John Willis, and payable to the order of a lady named Hodgson; some notes for L1 each, on the bank of Forbes and Co., Edinburgh; two Bank of England notes for L20, and L10, several L5 notes which were enclosed in a pocketbook; a small bag, containing some L5 notes, and a quantity of gold and silver monies, a sealed letter, known to be from a gentleman named Erskine, with a L5 note and a few sovereigns enclosed. With this very large booty the villains gone away, without giving the slightest alarm, and the robbery was not discovered until the next day.
From the regularly systematic manner in which this robbery was completed the robbers must have been experienced, and well acquainted with the premises. A large reward (L50) is offered for the apprehension of the burglars. The neighbourhood of Richmond and Kew has of late been subject to the visitation of a gang of villains, who have accomplished many very extensive nocturnal depredations.

Royal Humane Society;
RE: Re Dr George Julius 1796
Dear Mr Fenn
How lovely to learn of a medal that has been retained in family hands for all these years! Your medal will have been struck in silver (the RHS did not introduce bronze medals until 1837) and, as Dick Wilkinson observes, it is normal to find medals of this period mounted behind watch glasses. . . . . .
The case books covering the period during which your medal was given unfortunately do not survive, but there is a good chance that an account of the case may have been published in the Society's 'Annual Report'. I wish you all the best with your research.
Kind regards
Craig Barclay.
The Humane Society started to give out honorary medals in 1776

Dick Wilkinson, Secretary of the Royal Humane Society advises on the "Refufcitative Procefs of the Society"
Our history suggests the following methods were used initially but most abandoned after the first 60 years.
1Warmth
2Artificial respiration by mouth to mouth inflation with compression of the abdomen and chest
3Fumigation by introduction of tobacco smoke into the rectum and colon
4Rubbing the body or friction
5Stimulants
6Bleeding
7Inducement of vomiting.
It is unrecorded what particular method George used!

Translation of tribute to David Dundas Bt.
To David Dundas, Bart.
Surgeon to the King etc
A man who relying on his outstanding talents and his own merits, attained the peak of honour and won the foremost men of the world to his friendship to a man who is justly to be admired by the medical world because of his great experience in the science of healing and because of his nature which is filled with many attractions of charm and humanity a man most beloved by his friends and all. To him the author mindful of all the benefits heaped upon him and of the friendship of which he is proud wishes with the greatest respect these first fruits of his labour to be sacred as a monument insufficient to repay him as he ought.
(Dundas (1749-1826) was surgeon general to the King from 1792 and was also made Royal Household Apothecary in 1792. He was a fine surgeon, and was made 1st Baronet Richmond in 1815.)

In 1812 George followed his Partner David Dundas Bt. as:
Apothecary to the Royal Household at Kew.
9 July 1812 - Julius, G. C.

Apothecaries 1660 - 1837
The apothecaries to the person and the apothecaries to the household were both appointed by lord chamberlain's warrant. In many cases appointments were embodied in letters patent under the great seal.
Originally there was one apothecary to the person. Two served from 1685 to 1820 when the number was again reduced to one. The remuneration attached to the offices varied from time to time. In 1660 the sole apothecary received L242 15s consisting of a salary of L115 and board wages of L127 15s. In 1685 both apothecaries were granted salaries of L500. In 1702 one apothecary received L372 5s and the other L327. By 1711/12 the salaries had been fixed at L320 5s and L160.
The office of apothecary to the household was held singly until 1727. Thereafter it was usually held jointly, two occupants serving 1727/62, three 1762/66 and two 1766/74, 1778/83 and from 1820. Originally the remuneration amounted to L100 consisting of wages of L40 and board wages of L60. In 1702 the salary was L160. By 1711/12 it had been fixed at L106 13s 4d. early in the period, all apothecaries were allowed riding wages and, sometimes, lodgings.

JULIUS JOTTINGS, JANUARY 1900, No 1.
MARIA LOUISA BREWIN ISABELLA'S GRANDAUGHTER WRITES; "Granny" as she was fondly called by her devoted grandchildren, was gifted with a keen sense of humour, and had a fund of stories to which it was our great delight to listen.

JULIUS JOTTINGS. JANUARY, 1901. No. 4.
OUR FRONTISPIECE. Thanks to Miss E. K. Julius, of Hollowdene, Meadvale, Redhill, who kindly lent us the originals, from which we were able to have these two likenesses of Isabella reproduced, and Mrs. Arabella Parkinson (her eldest granddaughter) for the following :- When young she must have been lovely, with her rich, auburn hair, her blue eyes, her perfect figure, and her sweet voice, so low and musical. She, like her husband, was strictly temperate, her only drink, water.
She had all the qualities then thought the most desirable in her sex. A keeper at home, clever in all domestic matters, she regulated a large establishment, and her sphere of housekeeping extended over the stabling, where she always knew how much corn and hay were required. Even the drains came under her clever management. And yet she was so gentle and sweet, so full of sympathy, that it was to her the young ones brought their troubles, and her big boys would confess to her alone their various scrapes, both at school and on the river.
On Sunday her children and grandchildren used to gather round her, and she used to read and task to them. She often read "The Pilgrim's Progress" to them. We heard once that when in India she boldly caught hold of a large, dangerous snake, which she found in her daughter's (Arabella, afterwards Mrs. Geo. Quilter) cradle, and flung it out of the window.
Whilst Isabella was out driving one day in India, when she came upon a crowd of people. She told her coachman to draw up, and to her horror found it was the funeral pyre of a man, and his widow was going to be burnt alive with his dead body, a custom to which Government has for some years put a stop. When the poor woman felt the flames mounting around her she sprang up in agony, and Isabella beckoned to her; she scrambled on to the carriage, the coachman drove off like the wind, with the angry mob yelling behind, but the woman's life was saved.
Isabella was aged 93 at her death.

Human Sacrifices In India. Letter By AN EAST INDIA PROPRIETOR.
Mr & Mrs Julius describe stopping Sati amongst Brahmins, at Arah in
1804, in a letter to the author in 1820.

Richmond,
February 25, 1820.
Mrs Julius, who resided at Arrah (about the year 1804) was informed that near her premises a funeral pile was erected, on which the body of a Brahman was placed, and that a multitude of people were conducting his widow to it. At that moment Mrs Trower, wife of the Collector, called in her carriage, and both agreed to attend the delivery of the wretched victim. They drove as fast as possible to the spot: as the carriage approached, the mob took to flight; but the pile was already in flames. In an agony of mind they walked round the pile. They perceived that the roof had fallen, but not on the body of the deceased, but was resting on the edge of the pile; and that the place prepared for the widow was unoccupied, for the poor creature, availing herself of the opportunity afforded by the confusion, had effected her escape! The ladies found out the hut to which she had fled, and gained admittance. Then they beheld the poor victim, about 20 years old, surrounded by four children, and her baby in her arms. Her eldest son, at some distance, crying. Her hair was very long, hanging down; and oil and ghee were dropping from it to the ground. Her head was covered with sandal dust, and her whole body was highly perfumed. Without the smallest reluctance she consented to accompany Mrs J. and Mrs D. to my house, with all her children. On her arrival, I discovered that her shoulders were very much burnt. On being questioned, she declared that her intended immolation was not a voluntary act, but the consequence of terror from the threads of the Brahmins, who had also given her a large quantities of opium and bang; and that for many hours previous to her arrival at the pile she was in a state of distraction and stupefaction. It appears that the Brahmins, seeing the carriage drive near, hastily threw down the roof, intending it to fall on the pile, and prevent the escape of the victim. But providentially they failed; it rested on its edge, and allowed the poor widow opportunity to fly. This poor woman remained some time with Mrs Trower, and then returned to her own village; but we never heard any subsequent account of her. P Julius.

The Davis Episode.
Towards the end of 1812 a female slave named Eliza died in suspicious circumstances.
The attorney for the estate was the Rev William Davis, and it was soon being voiced around the island that is Eliza had succumbed to a flogging he had ordered or even administered. One of his principal accusers, was John Julius President of the Council, and the man Davis had replaced as the estates attorney. In March 1813, mostly as a result of Julius's accusations, it was decided the Davis with three of his sons and a son-in-law should stand trial for murder.
Even though all were acquitted, the case, involving an Anglican minister charged with the murder of a female slave, cause a sensation in London.

Research Notes:
The Davis Episode.
Towards the end of 1812 a female slave named Eliza died in suspicious circumstances.
The attorney for the estate was the Rev William Davis, and it was soon being voiced around the island that is Eliza had succumbed to a flogging he had ordered or even administered. One of his principal accusers, was John Julius President of the Council, and the man Davis had replaced as the estates attorney. In March 1813, mostly as a result of Julius's accusations, it was decided the Davis with three of his sons and a son-in-law should stand trial for murder.
Even though all were acquitted, the case, involving an Anglican minister charged with the murder of a female slave, cause a sensation in London.

56. Richard JULIUS [710] (Julius Caesar23, William of Basseterre6, William R N (Capt)3, John of St Kitts West Indies1) was born on 14 Jul 1770, was baptised on 24 Jul 1770 in St George Basseterre St Kitts, and died on 18 May 1806 in St Kitts Leward Is Carribean at age 35.

Baptisms: 1770 Jul 24 Richd s. of Julius Caesar & Susanna Julius 10 days old . . . . . private baptism.

Richard was admitted to Lincolns Inn 27 May 1789 - Richard was described as the "only son Julius Caesar Julius of the Island of St Christopher West Indies Esq."
Ref: Lincolns Inn Admission Register 1420 - 1893, Folio 129 Page 531.

Although 21 yrs his junior, Richard was, as was his father, a personal friend of Charles James Fox, 1749-1806, (pictured), Whig statesman and orator, after whom he named his second son. Fox, third son of Lord Holland had a very liberal and unfettered upbringing, mixing a brilliant education in the classics, with much drinking and gambling. His support for the French Revolution saw him denounced in Parliament and marginalised between 1789 & 1800.

That Richard had an illegitimate son William, is part of family lore, see letters by Sarah Ann Julius [760], but remains uncorroborated - 2009

The following incident was ascribed to Richard's son Charles, by earlier researchers Florence Stevens, and Sir George Julius. However a recent search (2003) of the London papers by E L Fenn, shows the date and details to fit only with Richard. This is further confirmed by the evidence of Richards admission to Lincolns Inn in 1789

LONDON CHRONICLE
July 12 1791
Report as follows;
An unfortunate recontre took place this morning upon Blackheath between Mr Graham, an eminent special pleader of the Temple, and Mr Julius a pupil in the office of Messrs Grahams, Attorneys of Lincolns, who are brothers of the former.
The parties had dined together at the house of Mr Black, the surveyor, upon Epping Forest on Sunday and after dinner, having drunk freely, the latter expressing some free opinions concerning religion, much abrupt language passed between them. They were reconciled however on that day, and returned to town in the same carriage.
On Monday they met again, after dinner, at the Chambers of Mr Graham the brother of the deceased, when the dispute was unfortunately resumed, though apparently without malignity. No challenge was given that night, but on the ensuing morning the deceased called upon Mr Julius for an apology for some expressions; which being refused they went out together, Mr Graham attended by Mr Ellis and Mr Julius by Mr Maxwell.
A pupil of an eminent surgeon accompanied them to Blackheath, where Mr Graham fell by a shot which had almost passed through the lower part of his belly. He was brought to town in a Post Chaise, and the exertions of the most eminent of the faculty were in vain used for his relief. The ball having laid open the femoral artery and it being impossible to stop the discharge of blood he expired in the afternoon of the next day.
Ref: Greater London Record Office Library - Annual Register 1791 Vol 33 p28.

GENTLEMANS MAGAZINE reports further as follows;
Mr Graham was a gentleman of considerable eminence in his profession and of an esteemed character in private life.
Mr Julius is the son of a very respectable Attorney at St Kitts and is said not to have been the least to blame in this quarrel.
These Gentlemen had for some time been extremely intimate and are not suspected to have had any serious cause of quarrel. Some harsh words they might perhaps have used; and the remembrance of these might have excited a dislike, but certainly not such to make either desire the life of his adversary.
The duel therefore like most others was the consequence of an absurd unwarrantable fear of what might be said and thought if they did not expose their lives to each other.

MONTHLY OBITUARY for July - August 1791.
13. John Graham Esq of Lincolns Inn in consequence of a duel fought the preceding day at Blackheath with Mr Julius a young gentleman from the West Indies, who was in the office of Mr Graham, his adversary's brother.
The quarrel originated on Sunday, in a mixed company on a religious controversy. The subject was hypocrisy and in impropriety of preaching a doctrine contrary to notorious practice in affairs of serious gallantry which was considered as applying too closely to the circumstances of one of the parties; and this produced a violent bustle at the time amongst the company, without producing an amicable adjustment.
The first fire which Mr Graham received lodged a ball in his groin which proved fatal, after the best assistance afforded which could be procured. A mortification took place and he died the succeeding day about noon at his chambers.
Mr Julius, by the advice of Mr Graham after receiving the wound, immediately set of towards Dover as may be supposed for the Continent.
Both parties had previously lived on terms of amity, and the fate of the deceased is much lamented, having been generally esteemed as a very unoffending and respectable character.

WEDNESDAY July 13.
Yesterday the Worshipful Company of Apothecaries held there annual herbalizing feast at the Green Man at Blackheath: when about 160 of the Company sat down to a dozen haunches of venison and other delicacies of the season.
Yesterday a duel was fought on Blackheath ; one of the parties was supposed to be dangerously wounded. Had the Seconds been acquainted with so numerous a meeting of the faculty near the place, they might have procured immediate assistance.

THURSDAY July 14.
We are extremely concerned at having it authenticated to us last night that one of the persons who fought the duel at Blackheath mentioned in our paper of yesterday, is dead. His adversary has made his escape. We forbear to mention the names of the parties, lest it might give to sudden an alarm to the relatives of each.

Yesterday John Graham Esq of the Temple at his brothers Chambers in Lincolns Inn.

THE TIMES - Friday 15 July 1791 Pg 2 Col d.
"We are now at liberty to mention the particulars of the unfortunate recontre that took place on Tuesday last at Blackheath, as friends of the deceased have 'ere this been apprifed of the melancoly event.
The Gentlemen were Mr Graham of the Temple and Mr Julius of Lincolns Inn; the latter was in the office of Mr Graham's brother, and both parties were in terms of ftrict acquaintance. The difpute originated on Monday evening, in a company where both were prefent, Mr Graham was fpeaking to a Lady, when Mr Julius faid, he was a hypocrite in affairs of gallentry, and cautioned the Lady on the fubject; at the fame time he gave his reafons for thinking fo.
Mr Graham found himfelf hurt at the imputation, and fome words enfued, but the affair was feemingly made up, through the interpofition of friends, and both parties fhook hands. The circumstance however rankled on Mr Graham's mind, and the next day he called at his brothers Chambers where he knew Mr Julius attended. He told the latter that he confidered thofe Chambers as his own, and infifted on his walking out of them. He folled him down the fair-cafe, when fome further words paffed; on which Mr J. faid, he could not put up with them, and that Mr G. muft go out with him. He faid, it was what he wifed. The parties immediately called on two friends, who attended them in poft-chaifes, and they took one of Mr Hunter's pupils with them, Mr Hunter not being himself at home.
On coming to the ground on Blackheath, both parties fired together and Mr Graham fell. The report of the piftols foon drew together feveral people, who wifhed to stop Mr Julius from going of, by taking hold of the horsfes of the chaife. Mr Julius fwore he would fhoot the firft perfon that attempted fo to do, and at the defire of Mr Graham the people fuffered him to proceed towards Dover. Mr Graham was fhot above the hip and languished until Wednefday morning when he died"

THE TIMES Monday July 18th 1791 Pg. 3 Col c
"Friday the coroners inqueft fat upon the body of Mr Graham of the Temple, who was killed in a duel Tuefday laft. He was shot through the crural artery, and bled to death. After a due inveftigation of this melancholy tranfactin, as well its origin in every fubfequent part, the Jury brought in a verdict of Manflaughter againft Mr Julius, the principle, and acquitted the Seconds. On Saturday evening his corpfe was interred in Lincolns Inn burial-ground"
(It appears dueling was not a specific crime or offence but depending on circumstances persons may be charged with manslaughter, murder, etc. These first two would generally carry a death penalty)

Reported in London Chronicle Sat 16 Jul 1791 with addded comment - In the evening the corpfe was interred in Lincolns Inn burial-ground. This funeral prefented an awful example of the fatal confequences of a cuftom which has fo long difgraced the world, and gives us caufe to regret, that no fyftem of laws has yet been contrived of efficacy enough to prevent that abfurd and deteftable practice; that the moft trifling difference may be productive of the moft fatal confequence, and that fociety has no better fecurity than opinion of the lives of its moft valuable members.

Duel
One of the unfortunate rencontres took place on Tuefday morning upon Blackheath between Mr Graham and eminent fpecial pleader of the Temple and Mr Julius a pupil in the office of Meff Graham, Attorneys, of Lincolns Inn who are brothers of the former The parties had dined together, at the houfe of Mr Black, the surveyor, upon Epping Foreft on Sunday; and, after dinner, the latter exprefsing fome free opinions concerning religion, much abrupt language paffed between them. They were reconciled, however, on that day, and returned to town in the fame carriage.
On Monday they met again, after dinner, at the Chambers of Mr Graham, Lincoln's Inn, the brother of the deceafed, where the difpute was unfortunately renewed, though apparently without malignity. No challenge was given that night; but in the enfuing morning the deceafed called upon Mr Julius for apology for fome expreffions; which being refuted, they went out together, Mr Graham attended by Mr Ellis, and Mr Julius by Mr Maxwell.
A pupil of an eminent furgeon accompanied them to Blackheath, where Mr Graham fell by a fhot, which paffed almoft through the lower part of the belly. He was brought to town in a poft-chaife, and the exertions of the moft eminent of the faculty were in vain ufed for his relief. He expired yefterday afternoon.
Mr Graham was a gentleman of considerable eminence in his profeffion, and of an efteemed character in private life.
Mr Julius is the fon of a very refpectable attorney at St Kitts, and is faid not to have been the leaft to blame in this quarrel.
Thefe gentlemen had been for fome time extremely intimate, and are not fufpected to have had any ferious caufe of quarrel. Some harfh words they might, perhaps, have usfd; and the remembrance of thefe might have excited a diflike, but certainly not fuch as to make either defire the life of his adverfary. The duel, therefore, like moft others, was the confequence of fear - the fear of what might be faid and thought, if they did not expofe their lives to each other.

Evening Mail Wed 13 Jul 1791
The following are the particulars of the unfortunate recontre that took place on Tuefday laft at Blackheath.
The gentlemen were Mr Graham of the Temple, and Mr Julius of Lincoln's Inn; the latter was in the office of Mr Graham's brother, and both parties were on terms of ftrict acquaintance. The difpute originated on Monday evening, in a company where both were prefent -- Mr Graham was fpeaking to a lady, when Mr Julius faid he was a hypocrite in affairs of gallantry, and cautioned the lady on the fubject; at the fame time he gave his reafons for thinking fo.
Mr Graham found himfelf hurt at the imputation, and some words enfued, but the affair was feemingly made up, through the interpolition are taken of friends, and both the parties fhook hands. The circumftance, however, rankled on Mr Graham's mind, and the next day he called at his brother's Chambers, where he knew of Mr Julius attended. He told the latter that he confidered thofe chambers as his own, and infifted on his walking out of them. He followed him down the ftair-cafe when fome further words paft; on which, Mr J faid he could not put up with them, and that Mr G. muft go out with him. He faid, it was what he wifhed. The party is immediately called on to friends, who attended them in poft chaifes, and they took one of Mr Hunter's pupils with them, Mr H. not being himfelf at home.
On coming to the ground on Blackheath, both parties fired together, and Mr Graham fell. The report of the piftols foon drew together several people, who wifhed to ftop Mr Julius from going off, by taking hold of the horfes of the chaife. Mr Julius's swore he would fhoot the firft perfon that attempted fo to do, and at the defire of Mr Graham the people fuffered him to proceed towards Dover. Mr Graham was fhot above the hip, and languished until Wednesday morning when he died.

General Evening Post Thurs Jul 14 1791
The late duel gives us caufe for regret, that no fyftem of laws has yet been contrived of efficacy enough to prevent their abfurd and this deteftable practice; that the moft trifling difference may be productive of the moft fatal confequence, and that fociety has no better fecurity than opinion for the lives of its moft valuable members.
Further particulars of the late duel between Meff Graham and Julius:-when the former unfortunately fell, Mr Julius came up to him, fhook him by the hand, and after exchanging forgivenefs with him, he and his friend took to the poft chaife and were fetting off for a Dover; a crowd, however, furrounded the carriage, and would not let it proceed until Mr Graham's carriage came up to the fide of it. Mr G. then, with what remaining ftrength he had, put his head out of the carriage window, and requefted they would let him pafs, " as whatever may be the confequences, the gentleman has behaved like a man of honour" this inftantly fatified the crowd, and the chaife paffed on.
Without meaning to allude to either of the above parties, this unfortunate circumftance short hold out in example to all people who differ, either in politics or religion, to do so with temper and moderation: as for the want of this conduft, we find that the fubject of all others which recommends peace and forgivenefs of injuries has unfortunately produced the death of a very valuable member of fociety.

Morning Herald Tue 19 Jul 1791
When Mr Graham fell in the late unfortunate duel on Blackheath, there were not lefs than 20 fpectators prefent, who were about to take Mr Julius into cuftody until Mr G. with almoft his laft breath, requefted that no perfon would interrupt his departure.

FLORENCE STEVENS in "Genealogy The West Indies" and repeated in "A Power in the Land" says; " A younger brother of Mr Graham's was also articled there, an insolent, overbearing youth very quarrelsome. He called young Julius a "Nigger-Driver" and one day after abusing him he spat in his face, an insult which Mr Julius could only follow up by a "meeting" though he never would have quarreled.
Mr Julius fled to his relations at the Old Palace Richmond, where he was hidden in a garret until he could be shipped of to St Kitts. This must have been about the year 1815. He could not claim his inheritance in St Kitts for fear of identification and it passed to the Crown".

Dear Mr Fenn
Thank you for your enquiry to Miss Hutchings, on whose behalf I am replying. The Mr Graham who died as a result of the duel was one John Graham who was admitted to Lincoln's Inn on 3 May 1781 "the 3rd son of Thomas Graham of Edmond Castle, Cumberland" but he was not called to the bar. Instead as your extract states he became a special pleader which was a type of quasi-barrister, members of the Inns of Court who specialised in drafting, the then particularily arcane, written proceedings in actions in the common law courts. They were permitted to do this without being called to the bar and so were said to practise under the bar. In an early legal directory for 1790 he is listed as having chambers at 7 Fig Tree Court, Inner Temple which matches your extract saying he was "of the Temple". He was indeed buried in the undercroft of the Chapel, our records showing that he was buried on 16 July 1791, having died on the 13 July and that his executors paid L.1 for the privilege.
His two elder brothers were Thomas and James Graham who were attorneys with chambers in New Square (then called Serle's Court) first at no 10 then at no. 6. They were both members of the Inn as it was a prerequisite for having chambers within the Inn. It was not until later that attorneys were banned from being members. Thomas was admitted on 13 November 1777 the eldest son of Thomas and James on 25 February 1780, Thomas' 2nd son. The family appear in Burke's Landed Gentry and so I have attached the relevant page from the 1900 edition for your information.
As regards to your relative, Richard Julius, you are correct in your date for his admission to the Inn. The Admissions Register states that he was the only son of Julius Caesar Julius of the island of St Christopher. He was not called to the bar and since he was working for attorneys I presume that he too was going into that branch of the legal profession.
I hope that this information is useful and I wish you well in your continuing research. If you have any further queries do not hesitate to contact me again.
Yours sincerely
Mrs F Bellis

General Notes:
Extracts from a letter by Sarah Ann Julius dated 25 Mar 1906 : "I know positively that my fathers mother . . . . . was named Sarah Ann Cooke the sister of one who sometimes acted as Governor when His Excellency was absent; she was counted a very handsome woman so much so that one was heard to say 'she was a complement to her maker' . . . . . I remember her well she was tall and handsome but very eccentric; I used to think her a little cracked (not very complementary) but she was very fond of me and called me Lady Sarah"

16 Oct 1800 Margaret Crooke widow of Milward Crooke leaves L500 in trust to Sarah wife of Richard Julius. Jedidiah Kerie was an executor.

Sarah was a Beneficiary under the Will, dated June 1799, of her father Millward Crooke a St Christopher planter. She was left 10 Guineas. Her father noted "that for late years I have been very unsuccessful and have little to leave, so that my numerous family will be unprovided for"
