Notes for Julia DAVIS
Wrote as Frank Danby.

Julia Frankau, née Julia Davis (30 July 1859 [1] - 17 March 1916) was a successful novelist under the name of Frank Danby.

She was the sister of Owen Hall, Harrie Davis (1857–1920) and Eliza Davis. She was home-schooled by Laura Lafargue, the daughter of Karl Marx.[2]

She married the cigar importer Arthur Frankau. With him, she became the mother of the author Gilbert Frankau and the actor Ronald Frankau. She is thus grandmother of Pamela Frankau and Rosemary Frankau.

During the 1890s, she focused on engraving and wrote about this topic. She returned to writing fiction in 1902.
