Notes

He married Elizabeth Mott, the widow of the George Mott who along with George's brother John patented about 40,000 acres of land in Rappahannock County.

According to "Marriages of Richmond County, Virginia" ,pp ix-x, he was sworn in as a Justice of the Peace during the formation of Richmond County, Virginia.

According to Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Vol 1, p 240 through 243 he was in Richmond County in 1602 where he executed three powers of attorney for a land transactions from his stepdaughter Elizabeth Fosaker and her husband John. He remained in Richmond county through Oct 1695, another power of attorney on p 264, before he moved to Essex County where his estate was inventoried by his daughter Jael, see Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Vol 2, p 11 & 12.

According to "Cavaliers and Pioneers" Vol 2, p 159 he, along with John Bowzee and the 4 orphans of George Mott (he had married George Mott's widow Elizabeth after George Mott died in 1674), received a grant for 9019 acres of land in Rappahannock County, Virginia located on the south side of the Rappahannock River about 6 miles up from the falls. This land is in present day Spotsylvania County.

According to Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Vol 2, p 93 on 30 October 1702, he witnessed the will of Henry Johnson. Henry was the father of Richard Johnson who later married his daughter Jael Williams. Later entries on pp 104 & 105 show that William Williams also acted as witness.

Dan Harrison wrote: I have a copy of a document written by James Edward Harrison called "A comment on the family of ANDREW HARRISON who died in ESSEX COUNTY, VIRGINIA in 1718". In it is a section on James Harrison that reads as follows: James Harrison was the first of his surname to appear in the surviving records of Rappahannock valley in such way that he can be reasonably well described. In 1666, James Harrison was claimed as a headright by Robert Taliaferro and Lawrence Smith. James Harrison's early connection with Lawrence Smith, and a probable kinship of both Lawrence Smith and James Harrison to Richard Whitehead, who claimed Lancashire arms, give reason to suspect that the origin of James Harrison's family, if not his own place of birth, was Lancashire.

James Harrison lived first on the south side of the river, and later he lived on the north side, where his wife had inherited land. In his declining years, James Harrison again made his home on the south side, where his daughter lived.

By 1670 James Harrison had purchased land from John Payne, adjacent to John Prosser in the Golden Vale - Peumansend Creek area. About 1674 James Harrison married Elizabeth, widow of George Mott. It seems meaningful that George Mott had claimed Richard Whitehead as a headright, and that Richard Whitehead was connected with John Prosser. It might also be noted that in 1674 one Thomas Harrison, about whom nothing has been learned, witnessed the signatures of John Mott and Elizabeth, relict of George Mott.

By 1680 James Harrison had become a civil officer for Rappahannock County. In 1692 the county was extinguished as a political jurisdiction. The south side of the river became Essex County, and the north side Richmond County. In 1692 James Harrison was a Justice for Richmond County. In 1702 he conveyed land as James Harrison of Essex County, gentleman, to his daughter Jael, wife of William Williams.

The Rappahannock record fails to tell us whether on not James Harrison and Andrew Harrison were related. In 1708, the names Andrew Harrison and James Harrison appear in the will of John Battaile. In 1710, James Harrison and William Williams witnessed the signature of Andrew Harrison, Sr. on deeds to hi son, Andrew Harrison, Jr. Before 1708 and after 1710 no direct connection between James Harrison and Andrew Harrison has been found, no matter that they twice lived not far apart in the Golden Vale - Peumansend Creek area. Compiler believes that James and Andrew most likely were of the same Lancashire Harrison stock, but that they were not closely related, perhaps second or third cousins, and that they may have been offspring of fathers who were of opposite political persuasion during the English Civil War, but that is entirely speculative.

Neither James Harrison nor William Williams left a will, though both were possessed of respectable estates. The item "Money due in England" in James Harrison's inventory suggests that when he died he was still active as a merchant. The record further suggests that James Harrison and his son-in-law may have met an untimely end together. On a single day in 1712, Jael Williams was granted letters of administration in Essex County for the estates of William Williams and James Harrison, both deceased.
