bullet  General Notes:

Charles sailed steerage for Australia on the 12th April 1869 in "Young Australia" and arrived in Brisbane 13 July 1869, as a free settler. For many years he lived in Maryborough, Queensland, but returned to England in 1902, after 35 years in Australia.

Charles is recorded with Katherine, Reginald and Enid as arriving in Victoria on the Kent in Jan 1878 from Britain, presumably they were returning from a trip. The ages shown appear to be somewhat inaccurate as Charles 28, Katherine 25, Reginald 2, Enid 1. Charles was described as a merchant.
Ref: PROV - unassisted immigration to Victoria 1852-1923

Charles was a legatee under his fathers Will.

Charles was also bequeathed an annuity of 63 for life by his brother-in-law Edmund Charles Pendleton Hull

In 1870 he was appointed by Dept of Public Instruction a teacher at Maryborough Primary School. In 1875 it was proposed that a new school be opened at East Maryborough. Grandfather applied for the position as Headmaster and was accepted at a salary of L156 p.a.!
Floods interrupted the early days of the school; many homes were swept away and families were given shelter at the new school. It re-opened in March 1895 with between 50-60 pupils. Grandma assisted in teaching, and Aunt Edith Hampton, [Grandma's sister who lived with them] was also an assistant. Also involved in the school was a family by the name of Brown, Charlotte and Emily were assistant teachers
Reginald Hampton Julius was as early pupil at the school, and various other Julius names also appear on the school's register, children of the 3 other brothers who came to Australia at the same time.
Grandfather continued at the school until 1902 when the family [excluding Reginald Hampton] returned to England. They did not come back and Grandfather resigned in 1903. They lived in Shankin, Isle of Wight, and later in St. John's Rd. Ryde. in a house called "Swan's Nest", a very charming Elizabethan house. I have a painting of "Swan's Nest" done by Aunt Edith.
Charlotte Brown lived with the Julius family, and she went with them when they returned to England, also Aunt Edith Hampton. RHJ visited them in 1924, and it was while there are that Grandfather died (an angina heart attack). After Grandfather's death RHJ supported them generously for the rest of his life. Grandma, Aunt Muriel, Aunt Edith and Charlotte came back to Australia in the early 30s but did not stay long and returned to England. There they bought a house in Manor Road, New Milton, where Grandma died in 1940. Dad and I went to England in 1948 to visit Aunt Muriel and to see to their affairs. I can't remember when Aunt Edith died, but Charlotte died in 1953 and Aunt Muriel continued to live in the new Milton house until about 1963 when she was too old and confused to stay alone and went to a nursing home until she died in December 1965. Fortunately for us John Burroughs (a cousin of Aunt Muriel) was able to attend to her affairs on our behalf. I don't know where the cousinship with John Burroughs comes in in the family but he was a very fine man and conscientiously tried to look after Auntie.
P.S. Frederick Blagg Hampton had a sister Rosina Jane, who married Edward Fleming Burroughs, and John Lister Fleming Burroughs is their Grandson. This information came to me from Patricia Pharaoh (nee Burroughs, also a descendant from Rosina) and living in London.

GRANVILLE. The name of the school was changed to Granville in 1938. I was in Maryborough in 1965, after mother's death, and in the 'Maryborough Chronicle' on a Saturday was a large article re the opening of a new wing at the Granville State School by Mr. Pizzy Education Minister.
I went along [uninvited] to this opening and met the Headmaster Searle, other Education people, and many of the locals. Several old pupils who had gone to school with Reginald Hampton Julius, and Auntie came to meet me. On Monday I visited the school at invitation of Headmaster Searle, and was shown the original school register, with Dad's and other family names therein. There was also a large photograph of grandfather [very stained and eaten] so I undertook to have it restored for them. The 'new' photo now hangs in the Head's office.
At this time I thought up the idea of a JULIUS MEMORIAL PRIZE given as a prize for an essay to be set each year by the Headmaster. The winner to receive a book [with Julius Coat of Arms bookplate inside] for the pupil's use in going on to High School. This was carried on by me until 1975, the centenary year of the school, when we decided to make a 'Foundation Trust' to deal with the Memorial Prize for the future.
At the centenary celebrations, at which we were V.I.P.guests, this was done, and $1,000 [from M.G.J., M.H.B.,and R.S.B.] was presented to Rollo Nicholson, as trustee for the family, who together with the Headmaster, Schools Inspector, and Bank Manager, administer the Trust - and this is now continuing. [N.B. Rollo Nicholson is the eldest son of Gertrude and Harry Nicholson- Gert being a Gataker cousin]

The Deputy Principal of Granville School writes in May 2013
Dear Edward,
Granville State School continues to present the Julius Award for English to the Highest achieving Male and Female student of the Year. A plaque displaying the recipients is displayed in the Administration foyer. The foyer also displays portraits of the past Principals of Granville State School. The late C. A. Julius holds his place as the first of 12 Principals. The photo we use is as per your website.

November 1924
A cablegram was received in Maryborough on Saturday morning announcing the death at Ryde, Isle of Wight, England of CHARLES ARCHIBALD JULIUS, formally of Granville, Maryborough. Mr JULIUS spent the best portion of his life as head-teacher of the State School in our Eastern suburb, and served his generation well.
He was a man of studious habit, and in addition to his duties to the Education Dept., successfully coached pupils for examinations, which fitted them for their professions in later life. It was in 1874 that Mr JULIUS was asked to take charge of the newly-constituted Granville school. After twenty-seven years of faithful service to his honourable calling Mr JULIUS retired from the Education Dept. in 1901. He then resided in Pialba for a brief period, and subsequently proceeded to the Old Country, where he has spent a well earned retirement. Mr. JULIUS is survived by his widow, and one son, REGINALD [well-known and highly respected Brisbane business man] and 2 grown-up daughters.
It was a coincidence that many of Mr.JULIUS' friends should read in the "50-year ago column" of Saturday's "Chronicle" of his appointment as teacher at the Granville school, bringing back memories of one who had been a good counsellor and friend, and that a few hours later a cablegram was received announcing his death on 21st November. In our "50 yrs ago column" we referred to Mr JULIUS as follows :
"A primary school was to be opened after the Christmas vacation on the east side of the river. The school house was healthily situated on the ridge on which Mr Wilsons house was situated. Mr.JULIUS, who for nearly two years had been teacher in the Maryborough school, was appointed to take charge. From his well known fitness of the management of such an institution, the most happy results were anticipated. At least 40 children would attend from the opening."
Mr JULIUS fulfilled this early prophesy.

MARYBOROUGH. November 21.

He is survived by one son, Reginald (Brisbane), and two grown-up daughters.
