bullet  General Notes:


Julius was a Barrister, and is said "to have gone to St Kitts" and bought estates and slaves there. As his father is believed not to have left St Kitts, it is unlikely Julius was born in England, he may however have been educated in England and visited there regularly as he is said to be an intimate friend of Charles James Fox the Whig Statesman. He was a Member of Assembly of St Pauls Parish (Cabbesterre)

Caesar Julius is mentioned as manager of John Julius sugar estate at the time of the 1772 hurricane and "loft sundry articles to the amount of 100L"
Ref: Government report (on computer file) St Kitts Hurricane 2008

St Kitts 27 May 1780.
A meeting was held of an Association of the inhabitants of the Island, various matters were resolved, a summary of donations at the end of the article records "Julius Caesar Julius L3 6s 0d"
Morning Chronicle London 1 Sept 1780

A Caesar Julius was recorded in London, "born abt 1730". Father William. That would put Julius in the first family, where a gap exists between Catherine & Martha. He may also have inherited a plantation.
LDS Film 444873 Pg 902 Ref 4573 if it is a Parish Register may clarify?

John Hill writes 2009
Julius Caesar Julius was known throughout his life as Caesar. An entry in the diary of John Baker dated 25 March 1766 reads '. . . . . went to take one Thomas Brown Low's examination. Said to be dying, beat by Caesar Julius and Jo Clarke . . . . . "
There was no further mention of this Mr Low, and no charge of murder was brought against Mr Julius, so one has to assume that whoever he was for whatever reason, the former got away with a pretty severe beating! Caesar Julius married on the 29th August 1769, when he was 29, to a widow, Susannah Brodbelt, whose maiden name was Kerr,and she came from Greenock in Scotland. The Brodbelt family was well known in St Kitts.

She sold them at a low price to William Pryor as a settlement for the debts of her husband Charles Wainwright with whom she had 6 surviving children
