"It is recorded in the family of the aforesaid Julius ... that he being a youth of extraordinary valour and martial spirit was at the tender age of 15 taken by his father the above mentioned Edward Wall into a fierce and bloody action, when the said Edward after fighting valiantly for some time fell by the hand of a cavalier, his son Julius having been previously unhorsed in the fury of battle and during the main press on, his sword still reeking with the blood of the fallen warrior, vaulted into his Father’s empty saddle and pursued with irresistible impetuosity the victor, through many vicissitudes of the fight he tracked his course with the eye of filial vengeance, till he shot him to the heart" (1).
