     James London Jr. was born circa 1740, son of James London and (--?--) Dillon, in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony, because he is listed as 45 or older in the 1810 census. In truth, all one can safely say he that he was born before 1765.4,5

     James married Mary Turner, daughter of Terisha Turner and Sarah (--?--), circa 1768.6,4,7

     In 1768, he bought 461 acres on the branches of Porrage (or Perrage) Creek at Amherst County, Virginia Colony.8,9

     On 27 July 1782, James fell heir to his father's responsibility to provide for Elizabeth Miller, leading one to assume his father was deceased by this date.11

The land was bounded by that of Wm. Galt; Stephen Ham; and where Stovall's mill formerly stood. Witnesses were: Wm. London; Jas. London; and Jas. Turner, Jr (I think I've identified him correctly) in Amherst County, Virginia.13

     On 22 August 1805, James London Jr., father of the bride, witnessed the marriage bond of Lewis Gregory and Nancy London at Amherst County, Virginia, with John London as security and Martin London as witness.14,15

     On 9 October 1811, he was deposed in a lawsuit in which he stated he was 71 years old at the time and that he had lived in Albemarle near the land under dispute since his infancy.16

     Jas. London, father of the bride, consented to the marriage of Susannah London and Obediah Henderson on 3 January 1820 at Amherst County, Virginia.17

     James London Jr. left a will dated on 15 June 1820 in Amherst County, Virginia. Witnesses to his will were: Henry Turner, Wm. Turner, Stephen B. Turner and Nancy Turner.
