An Anecdotal History of Old Times in Singapore:
From the Foundation of the settlement under the honourable the East India Company on February 6th, 1819 to the transfer of the Colonial Office as part of the Colonial Possessions of the Crown on Arpil 1st, 1867. Charles Burton Buckley. Kuala Lumpur, University of Malaya Press, 1965. p. 373 Captain George Julius Dare was a well known Singaporean. He had been a navigating officer, in those days called the master in the Navy, and married at the Cape when on the Station. His grandfather, Mr. Julius, then helped him to build a vessel of his own, and he afterwards built others, trading out to China with three different vessels of his own. In this year he was passing through Singapore, on his way from Bombay to China, and left his wife on shore at a boarding house kept by Mrs. Clarke at the south west corner of North Bridge road and Middle Road, where the baby Julius, who has been mentioned, was born. About two months afterwards Mrs. Dare left in the unfortunate Viscount Melbourne for Macao, with the two children, to join her husband there. Captain Dare sold his vessel for a very handsome price, remitting home the money at the exchange of about six shillings to a dollar! In 1845 he went home, and returned and settled down in Singapore in February 1848. These particulars are found in the evidence he gave in favour of Sir James Brooke, on the famous enquiry related under the year 1854. He commenced business in Singapore as a shipchandler and commission agent in the Square. There were then four shipchandlers' firms, namely, W.S. Duncan, John Steel & Co., Whampoa & Co., and Mr. Dare . . . . . In 1855 Mr. Dare went to England, leaving a man in charge, whose name there is no necessity to mention. He was a very plausible man, with a particularly pleasant manner, but he turned out untrustworthy and ruined the business, as well as his employer. Mr. Dare died in London, 50 years of age in 1856. He had a family of nine children, one of his daughters married Mr. William Ramsay Scott; another Captain C.J. Bolton, very well known and a great favourite in Singapore, who commanded Jardine Matheson & Co.'s crack opium schooner, and when steam came, the Glenartney. He is now living in Essex. Another daughter was married to Mr. Whitworth Allen who was in Singapore and Penang for many years, now retired from business. Another to Mr. Jackson, now Sir Thomas Jackson K.C.M.G., of the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank; and another daughter to Dr. William Hartigan of Hongkong.
