He was a Saddler/Framer at Tiger Springs, Bathurst, South Africa.

He was an 1820 settler with Dixon's party on the ship Ocean. He travelled with his newly wed wife and their three month old daughter Elizabeth.

It then sailed on and landed at Algoa Bay, Port Elizabeth on the 15th April, 1820. James Carney then became a farmer. He first settled on the Waaiplaats on the Kaffir Kraal river. Later he farmed at Tiger Springs on the Lynedoch river, near Bathurst.
