Deceased by 1815. Owner of Hanbury in Vere, later in Manchester. Given as James B. Vernon. Joseph Russell (q.v.) whose will was made in 1818 and proved in 1820, left £1000 to the daughter Bathshua of his late friend James Baillie Vernon late of of Manchester. Some genealogical sites gives a death-date of 1850 to James Bailie Vernon but this death refers to James Bailey Vernon, a six-year old, possibly a grandson of James Baillie Vernon of this entry.
