    James Aimer (Shipmaster) "was Capt. Aimer, owner of his own ship 'Diamond' was born in the big white house of Barry near Carnoustie - his father was there", according to a letter written to Edmund Aimer (George and Margaret's grandson) by probably either George Aimer (born 1817) or Elizabeth Sanderson Aimer (born 1819).

      Marriage source: Susan Haywood, from family bible.

      “We are sorry to say, that Captain James Aimers, of the Diamond, had the misfortune to fall
      overboard last Sunday, at the entrance of the Cattegate; notwithstanding every effort made by
      the mate and ship's company to save him, he was drowned in their sight." - from Caledonian
      Mercury, Thursday 10 May 1792

      His parents may have been Thomas Aimer and Susanna Miln. Thomas was a wright in Barry. (This is unconfirmed. Based on the family letter about James Aimer living in the "big white house in Barry".)

      (There seems to be a computer glitch - James comes up twice , once with parents and once without, all other info is the same. I have tried to merge, but only one James b 1751 shows up. Also tried to detach from parents and attach to correct parents, but it says he is already attached to Thomas.)
