Julia CURTIS.1857.
« on: Sunday 22 January 17 17:23 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone.
I am on the trail of a Julia Curtis born about 1831 in Leicester and arrived in Australia on 9th March 1857 at Geelong.
To work for a CE Strutt? at St Kilda.
If anybody can help or point me in the right direction to try and find Julia that would be really appreciated.
Many Thanks.

Hi,

Late in 1857 or early 1858 Charles Edward Strutt went to Echuca as the Police Magistrate, Echuca which is located on the Murray River in northern Victoria, wonder if Julia was still under his employ of Mr Strutt in that location, Mrs Strutt had a daughter at Echuca in April 1858.

I am not able to find her on the 1841 census but I see her in 1851 as detailed on the other thread.

What are her parents' names, please?  Australian death certificates ask for this information so it may be helpful in locating her later.

Having said that there is this death with no parents listed

Victoria 1917, #2944
Julia CURTIS, 81
Birth Year:   abt 1836
Death Place:   Ganham, Victoria

However, TROVE has a death notice for a Julia CURTIS, 81, who died at Hampton (Vic) in May 1917. She was the mother of Mrs MOORE, and three others only identified by initials.  So it would appear that CURTIS may be the married name.

Hi Judith,
It took me a while too to find the 1841 item, but it is transcribed as Julia  CURLISS.
Parents are William and Elizabeth and 2 brothers with Julia named Henry (13 years) and Alfred (5 years).

Thanks everyone for your help and looking for Julia.
Much appreciated.
I have found some more info regarding the arrival etc at Geelong of the ship the Admiral Boxer from a newspaper article.
Whatever happened to Julia after her arrival is a bit of a mystery .
Thanks again
Robin

Mrs Moore would appear to be Julia Laura Curtis, who married Thomas Leckenby Moore in 1888, although I cannot find a birth for Julia Laura Curtis.

Julia Laura Moore died in 1945 aged 84, so born c 1861, but again the parents are unknown although she is said to have been born in Hotham.
