The child's parents were married in Kookynie in 1903 (Marriage Registration 509/1903). It was the third marriage for Mary. She married William Tomsey Creech in Collingwood, Victoria, in 1881 but there were no children from this marriage. In 1889, she married Thomas Hambley, in Victoria (Marriage Registration 4367/1889). That marriage produced a son. Claude Harry Hambley was born 2 March 1890. Sadly, almost two years to the day after little James was stillborn, Mary's husband, James, died on 22 April 1906, also at Kookynie. He was a Teamster and met with an accident with his dray. His story appears elsewhere in this website. Mary Louise also had a daughter, Laura Tomsey, whose son Eric Vivien Monsen is buried in Kookynie and also features on this website.

He is buried in Plot number 14 of the Anglican portion of the Kookynie Cemetery.
