  • James Linklater left a will dated 24 Sept 1852 which valued his "half interest in the firm of J. & J. Linklater Provision Merchants, Grassmarket, Edinburgh" at £90.16s.9d clear evidence for his being co-partner in J and J Linklater with his half brother Jacob Linklater. The inventory was witnessed and signed by James' widow "Caroline Stephens or Linklater..." the first and only clue that possibly explains James Stevens Linklater's middle name. James' and Caroline's marriage certificate, dated 26 Nov 1841, states James was a "Ship Carpenter Residing in No. 15 Lady Lawsons Wynd in this Parish" i.e. St Cuthbert's, Morningside. James died intestate. I assume the whole of his residual estate, including his share in the business, passed to his widow, Caroline. I don't know when Caroline died nor if she made a will.

    James and Caroline had at least four children.
