The birthplace of James ‘Pioneer’ Lamey of Glenora has been said to be Cork, Ireland, but there is no direct verifiable evidence of his place of birth other than Ireland, as evidenced by a colonial land grant application in Nova Scotia. The application states he came from Ireland to Nova Scotia via Newfoundland in the period 1798-1800.
A report by the River Inhabitants and The Basin Historical Society indicates the Lamey fled the Wexford, Ireland Uprising of 1798 along with a number of other area families.
The year of his birth is inferenced as 1771 by an 1813 Militia Enlistment Roll at the Library of Canada, indicating his age as 42 in 1813. The document also lists him as James Lamey Jr.
