  • Notes 
    • of Esher, Surrey
    • wine manufacturer in London.
    • There is an entry in the 1794 directory of London and Westminster and the borough of Southwark - James & Were - British Wine Manufacturers, Finsbury Place.
    • He had a daughter Elizabeth who was married to a William Reave by 1799.
      His sons Joseph and Benjamin inherited his wine business and had real estate dealings (a quitclaim) with Joseph Fox of Plymouth Devon but late of Mark Lane London.
    • He is listed on some of the land tax records for Bread Street as being in residence along with Joseph James in the 1750s-60s and some of the directory records have Joseph and Richard James as running a joint business in Bread Street. It could well be his son Joseph who was taken on by his brother Joseph as an apprentice vintner in 1770. He died in Esher, Surrey, in 1798 and his will is detailed ? he leaves property to his sons Joseph and Benjamin, British Wine Manufacturers of Finsbury Place, London and mentions his daughter Elizabeth. He also mentions his wife Sarah ? although he must have drawn up his will some time in advance, as she died before him in 1798. He doesn?t mention his brother either as a beneficiary or an executor, so presumably he was already deceased.
    • Further research concerning Richard James and his family is needed.
