GEORGE CHARLES JULIUS. 1804-1885.
Reminiscences by Florence Stevens.
George was born in India in 1804. His parents soon afterwards returned to England, and settled at the Old Palace, Richmond, and George was brought up to the medical profession. He began practice with his father, but not for very long, and on his marriage, in 1829, to the beautiful Miss Spaight (*), he went to live in Ireland. His wife died in 1840, and leaving a daughter, Ethel, to be brought up by her grandmother, Mrs. Spaight, at the Hermitage, Castle Connel, co. Limerick, he went to live with his three boys at Wakefield, in Yorkshire, and sent them to a day school.
In 1844 he married Susan Thorley, the only child of a wealthy old friend in Richmond ; she died left him with another baby girl, Ella, who became the charge of his niece, Julia Quilter. Dr. Julius was very unhappy, and buried himself in the wilds of Ireland, with his three boys.
Whilst on a visit to Mr. Spaight, at the Hermitage, the house was nearly burnt down, and his boys had a narrow escape ; the bed in which two of them were sleeping was in flames, and Dr. Julius was only just in time to rescue them. He has shown me part of the charred bed hanging, handsomely worked by hand, which he always kept.
Very early in life his son Reginald went to seek his fortune in New Zealand, whilst Herbert and Edric practiced as solicitors in Maidstone, and at Holt, in Norfolk. After a time they joined their brother in New Zealand, and Dr. Julius settled at Washfield, in Devonshire, with his brother William, a retired major, and his niece, Julia Quilter, and her charge, Ella. He spent some happy years in beautiful scenery, for which he had a painter's appreciation, doctoring the poor people, by whom he was much loved.
Later on he spent two years at Willey Mill, at Wrecclesham, with Ella, and then took a little house near Brecon, in South Wales, a very beautiful part of the country, moving later into Peterstone Court. Whilst here he entered into and thoroughly enjoyed county society, for which he was eminently fitted, and also spent much time in fishing.
During a visit with her father to his, sister at St. Leonards, Ella contracted typhoid fever, which developed on a visit to Wrecclesharn, and of which she died at the age of 25.
This was a sad blow and lifelong sorrow to her father. He left Wales, and after a time settled at Seale, near Farnham, where later on his son Edric, now an invalid, and his widowed daughter-in-law, Mrs. Reginald Julius (Catherine Cameron), and her three children joined him, and remained with him to the end of his life.
He died at Tilford, near Farnham, in 1885, aged 81, and was buried in that pretty churchyard by the side of his brother, Mavor Julius, and his niece, Julia Quilter. He was a fine,looking man, about 6ft, 2in. in height., fond of art, music, and painting, a, fascinating talker, fond of society, and yet shrinking from it, a reader of every kind of literature, a good classic scholar, and also a lover of Nature. Fishing was his favourite pastime. He was not a successful man, and perhaps this made him rather morbid. He was very kind-hearted, and greatly loved by the poor wherever he lived.
He was a very able man, and would probably have done well in his profession if only he had kept to it.
(*) Said to have been an unhappy marriage - Pg 30 "A power in the Land"
