I think that although the Family Search information contains a little too much of Sirs and Ladies, it seems to be referring to the family of John Innes, 2nd of Coxton (Innes-314), who married Margaret Kinnaird in 1586. See the Innes of Coxton link at Which would make this James identical with Innes-559, and which doesn't seem likely since his family doesn't have any perceivable American connection.

Just trying to eliminate the least likely alternative!

The original sourcing for this file is mysterious. European settlers first came to Maryland in 1634; there was no Harford County or Baltimore County in 1636, and there never has been a Hartford, Maryland. What clues might there be in this material that could lead us to real information?
