Neither Dugdale nor Douglas Richardson give a birth or death place for James. Marlyn Lewis seems to suggest Haughton, Staffordshire, though the wording is a little unclear - "at of Haughton": James did not inherit Haughton until 1540 (see above) though it was held by a brother before that.
There have been suggestions that James’s mother was Elizabeth Bacon, as stated in Tudor Place. These suggestions probably derive from Flower’s Visitation of Yorkshire in 1563 and 1564, which gives Elizabeth Becon as James’s mother. Douglas Richardson’s Magna Carta Ancestry suggests that this is likely to be mistaken, resulting from confusion with Elizabeth Bacon, the wife of James’s brother Humphrey (who was also illegitimate): vol.1, p.287 footnote 165. Dugdale does not name James’s mother.
The date of James’s marriage to Mary Bannaster is uncertain.

I have removed Beninbrough, Yorkshire as James’s birth and death place. In James’s lifetime, it was held by the Bannasters, the family of James’s wife. James’s son Ralph inherited it from a Bannaster uncle. See Douglas Richardson, Magna Carta Ancestry, vol.1 pp.289-90. Neither Richardson nor Dugdale give a birth or death place for James. Marlyn Lewis gives Haughton, Staffordshire as birth and death place.
