     James Dunbar was born before 1595 in Scotland. He was the son of Sir John Dunbar and Katherine Graham.
     He may be the James mentioned in the following but he seems too young and it seems to be an appointment to a clerical position: Gift by David Bishop of Ross to James Dunbar second lawful son to John Dunbar of Avach of the Chaplainries of Johns Chapel Allane Preisthill Vlatill and Drumes in the Diocese of Ross with all Lands Teinds, fruits, rents, profits, emoluments, casualties and duties whatsoever pertaining thereto during his lifetime, dated 9 July 1607.

Conningham the same... Geo Smelhome, Jerome Lindsey ... all of Scotch birth or blood, whereby they are released from the yoke of servitude of the Scotch, Irish or any other nation or blood, and entitled to enjoy all the rights of Englishmen 12 Feb 16th.
A denizen was generally a person resolved to remain in Ireland and protect himself and his acquisitions by legal process. He could use the law courts but was unqualified to held any office of trust, civil or military, and was incapable of receiving any grants from the Crown. Needless to say he was debarred from becoming a member of the Council or a Parliament. [Although denization is the word used in the grant it is known that James I conferred "naturalization".] Note that a John Dunbar of Carrickfergus (Antrim) was naturalized Nov 28, 1617.
     Warren Loane states that he married a Weldon.
