Scott, James (?–1832)

On Sunday evening, Mr. James Scott, of Prince-street, formerly of the 73rd Regiment, by a fall from his horse. Mr. Scott was a very old resident in the Colony, and has filled many public situations with an integrity and simplicity of character which rendered him respected by all who were connected with him in his public duty. In private life, he was benevolent and devout, in all aspects adorning the religion which he professed. By his death, the Catholic Church of Christ has lost a pillar, and the poor a sympathising friend.
