The will of James shows conclusively he was my great great great grandmother Jane's father, as her 2 illegitimate sons, Thomas and Robert, that were born before James died are mentioned.
A gravestone in St. Maryís Churchyard also shows that Jamesís parents
were called James and Jane (Bell). This is undoubtedly the correct
James as the date shown on the gravestone for his death matches up exactly
with the date on Jamesís Will i.e. 29 June 1827.
