In the 1911 census (shown on Charles Stewart’s page) Julia Teresa Drewry is recorded as: daughter, aged 24, and a London C.C. teacher at Buckhurst Hill, Essex.
Family anecdote remembered Julia as a headmistress. Presumably in London, but which school?
Julia travelled to some faraway places.

Julia does not appear in lists of passengers leaving England by ship. Perhaps she flew out to these countries. The above return dates look like they could be intended to fit with end of school summer holidays.
The London Phone Books show a 'Miss M. Stewart Drewry' at the Castlenau address from 1930 to 1944. This could be Julia's sister Maud, using her maiden name as her stage name.
Miss J. T. Drewry (Julia) is listed in the phone books at Neeld Crescent from 1937 to 1940.
