JULIUS Family Tree

 

Two things recently reawakened my interest in the JULIUS family. The frivolous reason is that when I was watching the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey, I was reminded of the William JULIUS (1665-1698) who was buried in the Poet’s Corner at Westminster Abbey.

The second reason for my interest in this William JULIUS was that he was a great-great uncle of Amelia Lydia Dare, wife of Sir Thomas JACKSON. The more I learn about Amelia and her family, the clearer it becomes that their business connections were a significant part of Jacksons’s success in making HSBC such a major player in the late 1800s, and laid the ground for their successes in the 20th and 21st centuries.

 

Much of this tree was compiled by Wendy Jack, who shared it with me several years ago. I have added to it since then, and am grateful to all of those who made their various contributions. I continue to be more than happy to make any corrections to errors that I may have committed.

 

BACKGROUND: The earliest known members of this JULIUS line were seafaring colonists in the West Indies, and possibly other places. St. Kitts, which was one of the main islands where the JULIUS family resided and (later) governed, was first “planted” by the British in 1623, then also by the French in 1627, and finally ceded to the English in 1713 in the Treaty of Utrecht. The wealth generated for planters such as the JULIUS family was created in large measure by the labour of slaves, and resulted from the crops of tobacco, and then later when competition from Virginian tobacco came on the scene, from sugar.

NOTE: At this point, I am not going to annotate all the names in the tree beneath. Details on them can be found on my Rootsweb tree, which I will update on a regular basis. It is easier for me to do that than to continually refresh this version of the tree. For now, I have footnoted the names of the most interest to me – partly because these are names where I hope to learn more from others - and have bolded them so they are easy to pick out.

 

Descendants of John Julius

NOTE: According to the research of Amy Oliver LLOYD (1874-1962), the arms of his son, William, are those of the JULIUS family of Richmond in Surry, England. At present, I have only circumstantial evidence about his first name. It is also not much more than a hunch that John JULIUS and William JULIUS are in fact brothers, and hence sons of the 1st John JULIUS. Amy Oliver LLOYD, a daughter of Sir Thomas JACKSON, did a sketch of the crest as follows:

[1] The earliest records of the JULIUS family are in the Records Office, Fetter Lane, London. In 1668 one John Julius was paid a Sum of money by the King to bring himself and family from North Yarmouth to St. Kitts. from “Julius jottings”  January 1902. In 1880 I chanced to be in the record office at Fetter lane and came upon this notice that in 1668 one John Julius to take himself and his family to St. Kitts -- it is supposed that this JJ is the person referred to in the genealogical table which was in our last issue and whose date is given as 1726. This brings the family considerably further back from 1726 to 1668 – editor SOURCE: Notes by Amy Oliver LLOYD (1874-1962). This has been corroborated by the same record – see beneath. I am unsure which John Julius is being referred to, but I suspect the elder.

[2] John JULIUS. NOTE: The birth date and place for him is from an Genforum posting which gave no source.

·        John Julius of North Yarmouth a planter. Petitioner to the King and Council 1688 [NOTE: the primary source says 1668]. Petitioner for divers years an inhabitant of St Kitts until the French took his whole estate, but not withstanding, that said Island is again surrended to the English. Prays leave to transport himself, wife and family, and £150 in goods from London to Middlesborough where a passage offers for said Island". http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,338148.msg2174951.html

·        Although I have made him the father of William & John, I suspect that there may very well be another generation between them. My clue for including these two as brothers comes from the death notice of Jane Adelaide DARE as transcribed by Amy Oliver LLOYD: On the 23rd March 1872 at Hounslow Jane Adelaide eldest dau of the late Phocion Dare Esq. Of Woodford Park, Dorset granddaughter of the late William Julius  Esq. Of the Manken Estates Island of St. Kitts, niece of the late John Julius Esq. Governor of the said Island. Aunt to A.L. Jackson

[3] William JULIUS (1726-1780)

·        He was the proprietor of Mansion and Killicrankie Estates in island of St. Christopher and St. Kitts, West Indies. My great grandfather, William Julius, was considered one of the proudest and most extravagant men in England. He never drove out without his four horses and outriders and live fully up to his income which was £30,000 per annum. He married an equally proud Welsh lady, a Miss Edwards, first cousin of the late Sir Charles Morgan of Tredegar Park, whose son was afterwards Lord Tredegar.

[4] Jane Smith EDWARDS

·        Jackson's Oxford Journal, Oxford, England, 12 July 1823. Death notice (hereafter cited as Death Notice, Jackson's Oxford Journal). Calculated birth year. Age given as 100 yrs at death in 1823. NOTE: Her daughter, Jane Smith JULIUS wanted to be buried in the same graveyard, the Tabernacle burying Ground - I assume in Bristol, England.

[5] Louisa Caroline JULIUS.

·        My grandmother, Louisa Caroline Julius, was a sister of the late Dr. Charles Julius, M.D., of the Palace Richmond. (It was he who brought the late Duke of Cambridge into the world.) My grandmother was a daughter of the late William Julius, a considerable landed proprietor (Mansion and Killiekrankie Estates) in the island of St. Christopher or St. Kitts, West Indies. His brother John Julius, was then the governor of the same island, and my Grandmothers uncle, William Hamilton, was the Attorney General. SOURCE: George Mildmay DARE (1840-1907) http://www.thesilverbowl.com/history/DARE-GeorgeM-Notes.html [NOTE: I am still trying to run down this William HAMILTON. I have lots of notes on a William Leslie HAMILTON who seems most likely, and will post it when I can get it all to click together.]

[9] William JULIUS:

·        In the south choir aisle of the Abbey is a small marble tablet for Captain William Julius. The border is decorated with flowers and cherub heads with a winged death’s head at the base. The coat of arms was re-painted in the 1960s when the tablet was cleaned. The inscription reads: “Near this place lyeth interr’d the Body of Capt. William Julus [Julius] late Commander of His Ma. Ship the Colchester who departed this life ye 3d of Oct. 1698 Aged 33 years” The name is definitely Julius in the Abbey burial register so the painter of the inscription made a slight mistake. The arms are “argent, a fess azure between three mullets of six points gules, a crescent for difference or” (ie. a silver ground with a blue horizontal bar across the centre and three red six-point stars). The crescent, which indicates a second son, was re-painted red instead of gold. These seem to be the arms of the family of Julius of Richmond in Surrey. William served in the ship Chester on the West India station and had an illegitimate son William, of the island of St Kitts, and an illegitimate daughter Jemima, of the island of Nevis. They were provided for in his will and the rest of the estate was left to his sister Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Westcott of St Kitts.

·        BRITISH NATIONAL ARCHIVES: Captain W. Julius, the Chester at Sheerness. He has made out tickets for the men discharged to the Royal Katherine, but she sailed before they were ready. Should he send them to London or to Captain Goather at the Downs. Item reference ADM 106/484/145 Captain William Julius, the Chester, Plymouth Sound. Reports his arrival with four merchant ships bound for London from St. Christophers, has sent books to Clerk of the Cheque, a list of clothes sold laid in by Captain Samuel Horne and Thomas Long, merchant at Antigua, and requests provisions and stores to proceed to the Downs. Item reference ADM 106/490/130 NOTE: There are a number of other such references, but so far, I cannot find his will on line at the National Archives.

·        Little is known of Julius’s life and career other than that he had commanded HMS Chester and later HMS Colchester in the West Indies, where he died of fever.

[10] Unnamed HAMILTON. I am not sure where this surname came from. The marriage

[11] John JULIUS John Julius, President of St. Christopher.

[12] Mary WHARTON. WHARTON was one of the first plantation families of St. Kitts.

[13] Thomas WESTCOTT: In the will of his wife's brother William JULIUS - the rest of the estate was left to his sister Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Westcott of St Kitts.
