Julia Charlotte Maitland

English, 1808 - 1864

Julia Maitland, née Barrett, married James Thomas in 1836, who took her to India where he was a judge in the Madras Presidency. They moved to Rajahmundry in 1837, where they kept a boys' school. The ill-health of her daughter Henrietta Anne Thomas obliged her to return to England in December 1839. After her husband's death in 1840, Julia Thomas was remarried to Charles Maitland (1815–1866). Julia Maitland's first publication of note was her 'Letters from Madras, during the years 1836-1839' published anonymously in 1843.
