He also had a hotel inherited from his previous wife, Alice Murphy who was a widow and she owned the hotel opposite William and Eleanor.  Alice also died in 1825.

In the 1828 census, James and Eleanor do not get a mention, and positive deaths have not been able to be found for them in NSW.

Eleanor’s son William died at the age of 27 and was buried 28/5/1834 and left 5 children.
