James Errol Boyd was the third child and eldest son of Thomas and Eleanor (Roach/Roche) Boyd. He arrived here on 8 July 1826 on the “John Barry”. His father was with the 1st Detachment of Royal Veterans' having fought in the Napoleonic Wars. On his discharge, Thomas was given a grant of 100 acres at Turramurra on what is now the Pacific Highway and even then it was bisected by Kissing Point Road. Thomas became an orchardist and named his property "Toulouseville" in memory of one of the battles in which he fought. Over the years this name was lost and the property became known as "Boyd's Orchard". James purchased the Turramurra property from his father and raised his family thereafter Thomas went into the timber business and moved to a Kent Street dwelling. Later James joined his father in the business to some extent and he also engaged in property dealing and became a man of independent means.

Note

At the age of 71 James was remarried to Helena Deagen on 22 February 189~ and she bore him a daughter. James died two years after the marriage and his will stipulated that Helena would lose her inheritance if she remarried - a harsh clause for a young bride of a very elderly bridegroom. She remained unmarried and lived well into her 80s.
