Julia Jacobs is the daughter of Samuel (grave 87 and Phoebe Jacobs (grave 88). Her sisters Harriet (grave 89) and Rachel (grave 90) are also buried in Bath.
She was born in 1826 in Whitechapel London. She had a brother, who died aged 15, and seven sisters, all born in Whitechapel. She never married. Her father Samuel was a clothes salesman.
There is no record of the family in England in the 1851 census. But there is record for Julia her parents and three of her sisters, Harriet, Rachel and Maria, returning from Victoria, Australia in March 1855. A record of their arrival in Victoria has not been found but three of Julia's sisters were married in Victoria between 1850 and 1854 (see life story for Samuel Jacobs grave 87).
By the 1861 census Julia, together with her parents and her three unmarried sisters Harriet, Rachel, and Maria were living in Paddington. Maria married in 1866 and went to live in Vienna.
The family moved to Bath in 1861/2 , probably because of Samuel's health. He died in 1866 a rich man and Harriet's mother died a year later.
Julia continued to live in Bath with her two unmarried sisters , Harriet and Rachel. In the 1871 census they are living in 2 Somerset Cottages, Prior Park Road. Their occupations are recorded as 'bond holders/income from foreign bonds'. But by the 1881 census although Harriet and Rachel are living in a lodging house at 11 Manvers Street, Julia is recorded as living in the St Cuthberts Lunatic Asylum in Wells.
Harriet died in 1885 leaving her personal effects of £973 12s 8d. to her sister Rachel who died three years later on 15 March 1888. Her personal estate was £2,026 1s. 9d. which she left to "my sisters who shall be living at my decesase".
Julia was then alone except for her brother in law Emmanuel Davis. He had returned to Birmingham with his 4 children after the death of his wife Amelia, Julia's sister, in Australia. Julia died in 1897 at Glendossil Asylum in Henley in Arden. She had not made a will. So it seems that Julia had lived in mental asylums for at least 16 years. Emmanuel must have arranged for her body to be transported to Bath where she was buried near to her parents and sisters.
