1800 6 Jul Wm s of Rd JULIUS Esq.,
Ref: Communication from George H King, Historic Sites & Records Committee, St Kitts, dated 6 Apr 1936

William was illegitimate and lived at Sandy Point St Kitts, according to a letter from Sarah Ann Julius [760] dated 23 Nov 1906. He is said to have settled in Northern Rivers District of NSW Australia in the 1840's.

Sarah Julius of Basseterre wrote:
23 Nov 1907
. . . . .Last week a gentleman from on board a Canadian Steamer in the harbour here came to the Hospital & asked to see me - he said he was in Demerara and had been asked by some persons there to find out if anyone named William Warner Julius had ever been in St Kitts & also to find out all he could; he said that some person of that name had lately died in Australia (I think it was there he died) about 70yrs of age; he said there are many Julius's in Australia and very wealthy. This William Warner Julius had lived in Sandy Point & ran away from his father to go to sea; all that I could tell him was that my father had an illegitimate brother who lived at Sandy Point ( Sandy Point was the town formerly) ; this brother had a son by marriage who ran away to go to sea but I think his name was Edward - Just before my father died a young coloured man came to the island in a ship saying he was the boy who ran away some time previous to this visit. But I am sure his name was Edward. No doubt he is the same one who went to Australia and died there, for he came another time to this island serving on board a Royal Mail steamer and he came on shore to offer his sympathy to my sister & I on hearing our father was dead - the Canadian man must have forgotten his christian name and thought it was William - that is all I can tell you - now . . . . .

This link to the many Julius family's in the Northern Rivers area of Australia has not been proven beyond the above memory - 2003.

However in 2018 Barbara Roach is developing a sound conjecture having found a document below, where Dr John Maddox Titley manumitted a Mary Daniel who may well have been the Mary mentioned as the mother of William Julius mentioned in the manumission document dated 16 April 1799 of a William Julius by Dr Titley, below.

bullet  Research Notes:


That this may be William Julius [716] is becoming more likely.
