More information

Julia Gardiner Tyler was born on Gardiner's Island off the eastern tip of Long Island, New York, one of the largest privately owned islands in the United States. She was the daughter of Juliana McLachlan-Gardiner and David Gardiner, a prominent landowner and New York State Senator from 1824 to 1828. Julia was raised in the New York town of East Hampton as well as in the small hamlet of Bay Shore, Long Island; Bay Shore was called Penataquit until 1868, and even earlier, Awixa. At the age of 19, she shocked polite society by posing on the arm of a gentleman who was not her relative for a handbill advertiseing a middle-class department store that billed her as the "Rose of Long Island". She was almost immediately sent to Europe in the hope of improving her social graces.
