                                                            James Kirton (c.1793-1849) died on September 7th 1849 and was buried 6 days later at St. Marylebone Parish Church in London. He had lived at 1 Great Portland Street where he traded as a stationer and had 'a ruled accompt book warehouse'. On his death he left everything to his sister Elizabeth and, if she should predecease him, he willed that there should be 'an equal division... among my brothers and sisters without distinction or partiality and I hope we shall all meet in heaven.' It is interesting to note that he was not the first member of the Kirton family to be in the paper trade as in the 1660s the diary of Samuel Pepys refers to Joshua Kirton as 'my bookseller' who traded from St. Paul's Churchyard.
