James Lord was a fustian maker at Bolton.  He was married to Grace Haley.
They had a son, David Lord 1785-1847.

James was landed at Port Phillip and was then removed to VDL.  After his emancipation he accumulated a large fortune, by farming, shrewd trading and partly in spirits, with and without a licence.

Son David Lord and his family arrived
in Hobart per ‘Harriet in March 1817.
He joined his father in business - In 1817 he had been granted land, 100 acres, and in 1819 received a further grant of 700 acres.
