Captain Julian Hall

Captain Julian Hall

A carte-de-visite portrait of Captain Julian Hall (1837-1911), who rose to the rank of Lieutenant-General in the service of the Coldstream Guards.

Recorded in the Silvy daybooks as ‘Captain Julian Hall’, this is almost certainly Captain Julian Hamilton Hall of the Coldstream Guards.

Born on 17 January 1837, he was the son of Sir John Hall of Dunglass, 5th Bt. A veteran of the Crimean campaign by the age of seventeen, he spent a lifetime in the service of the Coldstream Guards, rising to the rank of Lieutenant-General.

On 6 July 1864 he married Augusta Wilhelmina Louisa Fremantle, daughter of Major-General John Fremantle.

In later life, he lived at 90 Eaton Place in London.

According to the biography that accompanied his cartoon in Vanity Fair in 1898: ‘He wears the most startling haberdashery.'

He died on 15 August 1911, aged 74.

Photographed on 1 September 1861 by Camille Silvy of London.
