He married (in 1887 at Christchurch) a widow Mary Sibbald (nee McIntosh). She was born at Edinburgh in c 1846.

There does not appear to have been any children from either marriage.

James started out as a civil servant around 1880 in Wellington. He was briefly in Christchurch before becoming a shorthand writer back in Wellington. By 1896 he was a medical student in Dunedin. There is a gap in his history, however he is in Levin as a medical practioner from at least 1905 to 1914. He then left for London where he died that same year. It is not known (at this stage) what happened to Mary.
