  General notes:


  Events in his life were:

  • Advertised in the Caledonian Mercury (Edinburgh Scotland), 7 Jan 1755,
    "To be sold by public voluntary roup upon Wednesday the 4th of February next, at the house lately possest by the deceast James Geddes, watchmaker, and now by his relict, at the back of the Guard, great choice of Gold, Silver, and Pinchbeck watches, eight-day clocks, a repeating table clock, Barometers, and sundry pieces of the movements of watches, together with the whole instruments and utensils necessary for a watchmaker. The particulars are to be seen at any time between and the day of roup, which is to begin at 10 o'clock and to continue till all is sold off. It is hoped that those who are debtors to the said James Geddes will without delay make payment to his relict, who is entitled to discharge them, which will prevent the disagreeable necessity of a prosecution. And it is expected that those who have got watches out upon trial will either return them or the value before the day of roup."

James married Lilias Gray on 18 Nov 1744 in Edinburgh Scotland.
