James Dumaresq was born in Boston in 1772, the eldest surviving son of Philip Dumaresq and Rebecca Gardiner. Philip's father, also Philip, had settled in Boston early in the 18th century and married in 1716.

James served in the Royal Navy, as did his younger brother Philip, and a fascinating set of documents and correspondence survives surrounding the life of this Jersey family in Boston.
