James Taylor (1822 – ????) was the 4th great-grandfather of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the Taylor family line. Born in Oldham (then part of Lancashire), James is registered as having been the husband of Nanny (or Nancy) Wimpenny, whom he married on 6th February 1842 at St Mary’s Church in Oldham, and having been the father of James Taylor (born 1852), the 3rd great-grandfather of Cometan. The details surrounding James’ death remain unknown. His father was named Thomas Taylor.

In 1939, at the age of seventeen, James was apparently convicted of larceny with the date of the trial being 5th February 1939 in Lancashire. According to the 1881 England Census, James is recorded as living at 13 Malpas Street in Oldham, Lancashire with his wife Nancy and his two youngest sons, Herbert and Joseph, aged twenty and fifteen respectively.

James and Nanny are known to have had ten children, named Sarah (b. 1843), Thomas (b. 1844), Ben (b. 1846), Mary Alice (b. 1849), and then James, followed by George (b. 1954), John (b. 1856), Maria (1859-1906), Herbert (b. 1861), and Joseph (b. 1865).

In Cometanic ancestry, James is categorised as part of the 6th generation retrograde, classifying him as a distant ancestor of Cometan
