      Although the coroner returned a open finding -the family have always maintained that James travelled by ferry to Circular Quay on the 11th August with the intention to keep an appointment with his lawyer in Sydney (city). The purpose of this appointment was to purchase further property in Manly. He had a large sum of money in his wallet for this purchase. Although, he was a very astute and a careful gentleman, it is believed by the family that he was murdered and robbed. He was found floating between the wharf and the rope tied ferry at Circular Quay. When James' body was recovered he had sustained severe injuries, which at the time were attributed to being between the wharf and ferry together with the tidal (swell) movement. Many believe he was assaulted, robbed, and pushed into Sydney Harbour.His wallet and money were not on his person and were never found.
