James was born in St George in the East, London on 2nd November 1822, to William Elliott, a cooper and his wife Ann nee Jenkins. James was a cooper at the time he married on 29th March 1850 at Stratford in Bedfordshire. His bride signed herself as Lydia Rosetta but appeared as Rosetta Lydia on subsequent Census records. Her maiden name was Bourne and her father was a bonnet manufacturer which no doubt influenced her to become a milliner. James and Rosetta had 6 children, 3 girls and 3 boys.
