Like his father, James was a tanner and occupied the homestead on Humphrey street, Forchester, so long identified with his family. James was best known as ruling Elder of the church, from 1651 to he death, in 1686 (Gen. Reg. Bol. 2:383). He left a will (Suffolk Probate) which, in the enumeration of bequests first mentions his son-in-law, Obadiah Hawes, and the five living children, Obadiah, James, Desire, Richard, Sarah.
