James Dempster

     He may be connected to the following - A first notice of insolvency was published in the London gazette 7 & 21 June 1755: James Dempster, formerly of the parish of St Martin in the Fields, Mdx, late of the parish of St George the Martyr, co. Surrey, Brazier.
     James Dempster married Elizabeth Etheredge on 16 December 1763 in Iwerne Steepleton, Dorset. He is probably the James Dempster who married Elizabeth Etheredge by licence (Faculty Office) 16 Dec 1763 in Iwerne Steepleton, Dorset, both of this parish. The witnesses were Robert Waghorn & Jno. x Sheppard.
     On 10 Oct 1768 the Salisbury & Winchester journal advertised: At the request of friends, will be published on Monday the 31s instant, 24 copies of RoundHand, wrote and adorned with flourishes in the neatest manner James Dempster, and engraved on seven foliio copper plates by Thorowgod.

     1771 churchwardens accounts and rate books: "James Dempster for trade, 1/2d". There was no entry to indicate he paid rates on a dwelling. The reference to 'trade' indicates this James was not a school teacher.
     He is probably the James Dempster who witnessed the marriage by licence of Charles Cooper of St Peter, Shaston & Elizabeth Biles at St Peter Shaston, Dorset on 29 September 1771 with William King at Blandford Forum.
     On 17 Nov 1772 and later, the Salisbury & Winchester journal advertised: Articles of intelligence are taken in at London ... Mr J Dempster, Bookseller, and Mr Clench, Post-Master, Blandford..
     He is probably the James Dempster who witnessed the marriage of James Holloway & Molly Gollop at Spettisbury, Dorset on 12 Oct 1774 with William Meech.

As Blandford, Dorset is the birthplace of John Sinclair Dempster and a James was married nearby, this is probably the correct man.

     His ex-pupils gave him a benefit ball in February 1803: Of all the public manifestations of affection and esteem which we ever remember to have seen exhibited by grateful pupils to a revered Master, the Meeting at the Crown and Anchor, on Friday night, of the friends of Mr Dempster, of Mitcham, may surely claim first place. We understand a few of the former pupils of that Gentleman had resolved, at Christmas last, to give him some token of the esteem in which they held him, and for that purpose, issued 100 'tickets', at one guinea each, for a ball at the Crown and Anchor : but of all those who for the space of eighteen years had witnessed or experienced the liberal and conscientious conduct of the proprietor of Baron House, such was the eagerness to have an opportunity of demonstrating their respect, that the room which had been appropriated for the meeting, was found at an early part of the evening insufficient for the company, which assembled... they would meet again next year on the same joyful occasion; and Mr Dempster was given to understand that he should be annually gratified with this tribute to his worth, as long as he chose to continue the Master of Baron-House Academy.
