< The Dictionary of Australasian Biography

St. Julian, Charles James Herbert, was born in France on May 10th, 1819, and emigrated to Adelaide in 1837, proceeding in 1839 to Sydney, where he wrote for the Australian Chronicle, and subsequently for the Commercial Journal. In 1843 he joined the staff of the Sydney Morning Herald, which he left four years later for the Sydney Chronicle, afterwards known as the Free Press. In 1849 he rejoined the Herald, and remained as Law Reporter until 1872, when he received the appointment of Chief Justice of Fiji, from King Thakombau. Mr. St. Julian, who had some time previously acted as Consul for Fiji in Sydney, died near Levuka on Nov. 26th, 1874.
