The British Isles Politicians Project and the Collaborative Profile of the Week Present:
Sir Julius Caesar (1557-1636)

In the run up to the Christmas/Holiday period let's look back at someone whose ambition was to hold the purse strings of Queen Elizabeth 1st and
King James: Sir Julius Caesar.


  1. Did he achieve his political goal of becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer?
  2. Did he give generously or was he a Scrooge?
  3. What was his connection with the Royal Mint?
  4. We need help connecting his parents: Who were they?
  5. He married three times and had seven sons and at least one daughter. Do we have profiles for any of his wives or children?

This is a collaboration for all WikiTreers. Give us a hand. Let us know what you would like to work on (it doesn't have to be on the list) by answering the question. An answer helps keep the question "fresh" and helps to eliminate duplication of work. You can then add information directly to the profile. Make sure you add the source also. You can just list the source right after the facts. Highlight it, and click on the  Cite your source with an inline reference button.

Thank you.

Thanks, Anne! Now featured on the main home page.
His parents are attached to his duplicate.  I've proposed merges.
Thanks for noticing RJ
Happy to see this. This family are in my tree because I descend from his sister, and the duplicates (which I worked on) have more sourcing and the merge will explain a lot when completed. As of now his father is not done. [[Adelmare-1]] tells a lot.

There is a detailed book about the family by Edmund Lodge which starts with a detailed pedigree for descendants.

(I have a copy at home.)
Thanks Andrew, The Google Books copy totally messed up scanning the pedigree at the beginning. I've noticed before that whoever scans these books seems to be clueless when it comes to folded pages.
Well it is very big, and so I think very difficult to fit on their format.
For another immigrant connection, his brother Thomas is an ancestor of the gateway immigrant William Rodney of Delaware.

Thanks Anne and RJ.  We seems to have duplicate profiles for him and both his parents.   TIme to merge - I'll have a look.  That's a different beginning to collaborative profile of the week !!

Great choice of profile - this person is a notable yet obscure at the same time!  I have learned something today for sure.

Julius Caesar, another Italian with English descendants. Why is this knowledge important...because cardiomyopathy (an enlarged heart to be brief) affects many Italians. Persons of English ancestry are unlikely to know that they are at risk.. sudden deaths among well-conditioned athletes are well publicized. Answer: Genetic screening. Do it now!
