James Magruder was born in 1658 in Calvert County, Maryland 
He was the son of Alexander Magruder and his first wife Sarah. 
Saunders, following MacKenzie, believes that James' mother was a Margaret Braithwaite. 
However, increasingly available documententation suggests that Margaret Braithwaite was a legend, and the actual mother of James was Sarah Unknown.
By the terms of his father's will  James with his brother John was to receive 900 acres in two tracts, Alexandria and Dumblain, on the Patuxent River. James was a witness to the will.
The Clan Gregor society materials indicate that James and John Magruder, sons of Alexander, Immigrant, died without issue 
However, Saunders believes that while the name of the woman James married is unknown, a son, Hugh, resulted from the union. 
James Magruder died 23 Dec 1685 in Calvert County, Maryland
