Julius Caesar Czarnikow – whose preferred forename was simply Caesar – came to Britain from Germany in the 1850s and built up one of the world’s greatest sugar brokerage companies, based in London but with branches and estates in many other countries. He resided with his family in both Belgravia and Effingham, owning Effingham Hill House (today’s St Teresa’s School) and holding the lordship of Effingham East Court Manor. He contributed significantly to the parish and died in 1909. He and his wife are interred at St Lawrence.
