James was a Merchant and Burgess of Dumfries, Roucan and Glasgow, but we do not know what kind of a Merchant. There is reason to believe he may have been involved with the Scottish Wool Merchants. He apparently lived in a house or on a farm or estate in Roucan known as "Greenhead".
James Coulter and his sister Mary (Coulter) Glassel were Covenanters.

The Glassels had a large wharf in Virginia for the docking of ships. In 1776 Robert returned to Scotland after making a fortune in Virginia and bought the "Long Niddry" estate in East Lothian. There, his daughter Joanna Glassel was born in 1796 and she married Lord John Campbell in 1820, John became the 7th Duke of Argyll.

There is an 8 January 1714 Sasine that was registered in Dumfries wherein Michael Coulter acquired for James Coulter's estate "...the lands of Kirkland...in the Parish of Glencairn..." from Abraham Creichton of Gairland and John Clerk of Troloss. Creichton and Clerk had acquired the lands from Archibald Douglas of Fingland on 24 March 1702.
Another Sasine registered in Dumfries dated 16 November 1719 approved the right to the deceased James Coulter's property to his eldest son John and for John to convey lands in Roucan, acquired from William Barton and his daughter Elizabeth, to Mareon Coulter and her spouse George Irving. This Sasine was within the jurisdiction of the Regality of Newdalgarnock and the adjudication was by a James, Duke of Queensbeery, deceased. The Duke of Queensberry was represented by a Baillie.
Sad news on James and Eleanor many greatgrandchildren has past. He and twin brother Wayman would go ever year to Scotland to do reseach on the Coulter Clan. Warren Coulter will miss by all who knew him for those you never will get the chance.

LOCATION: Little Rock, AR
Wayman Randall Coulter, aged 68 of Little Rock, passed away Sep. 13, 2008. He was preceded in death by his parents Randall and Sue Coulter and his twin brother Warren. He is survived by his son Travis, his former wife Tracy, his loving friend Mao Taksakulvith and many relatives and friends.

He recently retired after a long and successful career as a Social Worker at the Little Rock Community Mental Health Center, Inc. He had also served as the Regional Four State Commissioner of the Scottish Clan Donald.
His thirst for knowledge and lust for life was evident in his many activities. His hobbies included chess, fencing, photography, world travel, and he was a cigar aficionado. Wayman was a cultured and enlightened gentleman with religious values and honor, frequently quoting Shakespeare and Kipling, traits that are not often found among men of this day and age. He was a frequent traveler to Scotland with his brother Warren, family members, and friends. There is now a void in the community of man. He will be greatly missed.
From the Friends of Wayman: Our friend Wayman was a true blue friend, a man of his word, big of heart, quick of wit, well versed, honorable, well respected, well loved, and a Bonnie Good Scott! Wayman, we will miss you and remember you well!
