    p. 373 … Captain George Julius Dare was a well known Singap orean. He had been a navigating officer, in those days call ed the master in the Navy, and married at the Cape when o n the Station. His grandfather,Mr. Julius, then helped hi m to build a vessel of his own, and he afterwards built oth ers, trading out to China with three different vessels of h is own. In this year he was passing through Singapore, on h is way from Bombay to China, and left his wife on shore a t a boardinghouse kept by Mrs. Clarke at the south west cor ner of North Bridgeroad and Middle Road, where the baby Jul ius, who has been mentioned,was born. About two months afte rwards Mrs. Dare left in the unfortunate Viscount Melbourn e for Macao, with the two children, to join her husband the re. Captain Dare sold his vessel for a very handsome price , remitting home the money at the exchange of about six shi llings to a dollar! In 1845 he went home, and returned an d settled down in Singapore in February 1848. These particu lars are found in the evidence he gave in favour of Sir Jam es Brooke, on the famous enquiry related under the year 185 4. He commenced business in Singapore as a ship chandler an d commission agent in the Square. There were then four shi p chandlers' firms, namely, W.S. Duncan, John Steel & Co. , Whampoa &Co., and Mr. Dare. …In 1855 Mr. Dare went to Eng land, leaving a man in charge, whose name there is no neces sity to mention. He was a very plausible man, with a partic ularly pleasant manner, but he turned out untrustworthy an d ruined the business, as well as his employer. Mr.Dare die d in London, 50 years of age in 1856. He had a family of ni ne children, one of his daughters married Mr. William Ramsa y Scott;another Captain C.J. Bolton, very well known an d a great favourite in Singapore, who commanded Jardine Mat heson & Co.'s crack opium schooner, and when steam came, th e Glenartney. He is now living in Essex. Another daughter w as married to Mr. Whitworth Allen who was in Singapore an d Penang for many years, now retired from business.Anothe r to Mr. Jackson, now Sir Thomas Jackson K.C.M.G., of the H ongkong and Shanghai Bank; and another daughter to Dr. Will iam Hartigan of Hongkong.

      After the death of her husband Grandmother returned to th e Cape withall her children except the two eldest Georg e & Julius who went toSingapore. From a letter by and Eliz a Ball née Park.

      These are undoubtedly the parents of our ancestors John Tal mach, andthey had a daughter Elizabeth Ralph at [Springleto n] in 1708 and ourancestor John was baptized in next paris h Thereshead in 1710. Know wasthis Nicholas William who sec retly married a farmer's daughter, or washe the son of [?]c ousin Elizabeth Bacon[?] a secret marriage. That isthe on e thing we want to find out. My sister Jessie is in Englan d andshe tells me that the story as she heard it was Willia m lives in [?]on his mother's estate and could not marry i n his own class andsecretly married a farmer's daughter. Hi s mother was very fond of hischildren and looked after the m and promised to see them righted, butcould do nothing a s long as William lived and died first. It isstrange John s on of Nicholas and Mary had no son called Nicholas. Hiselde st was William Th Ralph [?].
